Il Melograno

This hotel is seasonal and welcoming guests from April to November.
Tamerici Beach club and shuttle service are available only from mid-June until mid-September.

A converted 17th century masseria set in an ancient olive grove in Puglia

White walls traced with climbing vines and bright blossoms. Rustic stone courtyards dotted with antique chairs and tables. Centuries-old olive trees reaching up to a deep blue sky. Everywhere you turn at Il Melograno, there’s another photo opportunity. As well as being impossibly good looking, this boutique hotel immerses you in the heritage and culture of Puglia.

With its outdoor pool and serene spa, Il Melograno is every inch the contemporary Italian retreat. Yet its circling walls hint at its past as a masseria: a fortified farmhouse used to protect Puglia’s rich produce from Saracens. Today, the gates are open and the tables are set with local delicacies – the chefs using many ingredients grown in the hotel’s own kitchen garden. This fusion of past and present continues in the guest rooms, where white walls become a sleek canvas for antique furnishings and original artwork.

Once you’ve settled in, you’ll find everything you need to switch into holiday mode. Spend days on a lounger beside the garden pool, or swim laps then head for the sauna in the Wellness Centre. There’s more to discover down at the Il Melograno beach club. From day till night, you can hop on a hotel shuttle down to Tamerici Beach Club for cocktails, just-caught fish and magical sea views.


Enjoy your stay!

Paradise in Apulia

All details match luxury hotel level. Liked the room, quietness of the place, food, two pools (one with warm water!) and the beach nearby as a part of the offer

Bellissima masseria, l'atmosfera era autentica e il personale cordiale.

Lussuoso al punto giusto, ci si sente a proprio agio e la clientela è esclusiva ma discreta. La colazione incredibilmente varia e gustosa!

Charming Hotel with a Lovely Staff!

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting with olive trees that are hundreds of years old. The best part of the hotel is the charming staff, including Francesca, Lucia, Maria Rita & Paola to name a few. Everyone that works here is very helpful, courteous & kind. We look forward to returning one Read more[SPLIT]Read lessday.

Tranquility amongst the olive groves of Puglia

We found all the staff (on front desk, in the restaurants and the service staff) so charming and helpful. They made the stay relaxed and enjoyable. The hotel is spacious and calm - ideal for relaxing by the pool. The food and wine are superb and we enjoyed the wine tasting dinner in the square. Read more[SPLIT]Read less Our only disappointment was that the beach was further away than we thought and it was dififcult to actually get into the sea at the associate beach club, Tamerici, because of the dangerous rocks - there was certainly no 'sandy shore" as mentioned on the website. The shuttle also mentioned on the website only left a very few times a day and you had to book a space as it only carried 6 people. We paid to go to another club, where the experience was much better (if pricey). Perhaps, as a 5 star hotel, it needs to think about an association with another beach club and providing a continuous shuttle service.

A private sanctuary nestled in ancient Olive Trees.

I'll Melograno was our final stop on our multi week Italy trip, and all-things Puglia in June 2022. The hotel built in a centuries old Maserie, was a sprawling collection of white washed buildings nestled in 300 year old olive trees. We opted for a superior room with an outdoor patio area, complete with Read more[SPLIT]Read lessa table and built in bench covered in cushions. The pool , with enough lounge chairs for everyone staying. Breakfast was the best of all our travels, with an assortment of fresh fruit, home baking, cheeses, charcuterie and ala crate eggs. The setting was perfect for exploring Monopoli (10 min drive to the beaches), Alberobello (25 minute drive into the hills), Polignano a Mare (an ancient city built on the rocks). What sets I'll Melograno apart from other places we stayed, is the staff and services. Staff friendly and professional, and service staff attention to detail making our stay special. This would be a perfect location for a remote event or wedding. We will be back!

Beautiful 2 days at Il Melograno!

We spent 2 amazing days here! It is a beautiful hotel, well kept, in a excellent location, 5 minutes from Monopoli town! The room was beautiful with a view of the garden full of olives trees! Big pool! Great breakfast! Great Service!

Relaxing but our stay was too short. Great base for first visit to Puglia.

The cocktails, the staff, the shuttle bus to the beach and sister hotel, help with places to visit.

Delightful 400 year old Masseria

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay at Il Melograma and especially loved its convenient location to the area’s sights not least being only a few minutes from the wonders of Monopoli. Our junior suite was very generous in size, had a sun baked terrace, well furnished including with Read more[SPLIT]Read lesstwo bathrooms and probably the best showers of our near one month in the region. The room was also equipped with a fabulous coffee machine and missed nothing apart from an iron! Service was generally excellent from reception’s Ilenia to the pool guard and housekeeping really outstanding including a comprehensive turn down service. Breakfast was included in our stay and was again fabulous. In addition to a generous buffet, fresh juices, machine coffee and eggs/bacon were available to order at no further costs. Iliaria at the breakfast service was incredibly charming and obliging. Unfortunately the male servers at breakfast were too often arrogantly unhelpful and should take a leaf out of their female colleagues. In my view the masseria offers great value and we would unhesitatingly return and recommend.

Food And Drinks

With tables dotted in shaded archways beside the pool and in sun-soaked courtyards, eat Apulian specialities while drinking in your surroundings. At Mùmmulo Restaurant, a beautiful central gallery opening onto the roots of an olive tree brings the outside in. Hotel-produced extra-virgin olive oil features on the menu, as do herbs and vegetables from the hotel garden. If you want a taste of authentic, local Apulian cooking, you’ll find it at Il Melograno.

Mummulo

Served Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Mummulo represents the traditions of Puglia. Named for the clay vessel that holds fresh water for those working in sun scorched fields- which is a vivid symbol of the Masseria s history. A dining verandah is finished in an Apulian rustic style- it overlooks our pool and citrus groves. Seasonality is the restaurant mantra. Each morning Mummulo s kitchen is a riot of colour and fresh aromas as local farmers and artisans bring their produce to the door.

Spa

Inspired by the traditions of holistic wellbeing we invite guests to take time to relax entirely in the Petramare Physio Natura Beauty Centre, slowing to the rhythm of nature surrounding our estate.
Before your chosen spa treatment visit our gym, swim in our large indoor pool and dry off in the sun, this is our own Roman ‘palaestra’. Then the therapeutic journey begins as you travel through a candlelit spa to soothe your body in the sauna.
Our treatments are formulated with aromatherapy brand Physio Natura which combines nature’s purest and most potent active ingredients. We personalise rituals to suit your needs and offer a menu of body therapies for firming or relaxation, and facials for purifying, cleansing and nourishing.
