This summer, the luxury retreat Capri Palace Jumeirah will welcome visitors to a brand-new culinary experience with Zuma Capri. In a press statement, Capri Palace Jumeirah says that their new rooftop restaurant in Anacapri will offer an authentic experience of Zuma’s modern izakaya menu and cocktails to the soundtrack of chilled house beats and unparalleled vistas of the Sorrentine Peninsula and Tyrrhenian Sea.
The hotel says that Zuma Capri will be the worldwide restaurant and lifestyle group’s third location in Italy after Porto Cervo and Rome. Co-Founders Rainer Becker and Arjun Waney first opened Zuma in London in 2002, and today it is known all over the world for its contemporary izakaya concept and Japanese cuisine. Whilst London remains the brand’s headquarters, Zuma now has over 20 locations across the world.
“We’re delighted to join forces with Zuma and bring our guests another exceptional culinary experience in this coveted corner of the island. Capri Palace Jumeirah captures the essence of the Italian Dolce Vita, and with Zuma Capri further enriching our dining offering, there’s an additional compelling reason to explore the unspoiled charm of Anacapri this season,” says Ermanno Zanini, General Manager of Capri Palace Jumeirah and Regional Vice President for Jumeirah Group.
It adds that Capri Palace Jumeirah delivers a blend of traditional palazzo architecture and contemporary spaces, with light and airy interiors framed by arches, vaults and columns, creating a distinct ambiance. This new project will be inaugurated on April 27.
“Following the success of our restaurant in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, in summer 2022, we were really excited to see the appetite for Zuma in Italy. After exploring the market, we are looking forward to opening our third restaurant in Italy on the beautiful island of Capri in partnership with Capri Palace Jumeirah,” says Rainer Becker, Co-Founder and Creator of Zuma.
The statement says that Zuma Capri will join a lineup of dining options at the hotel, including the only two Michelin star restaurant on the island, L’Olivo, and the renowned celebrity hangout Il Riccio Restaurant & Beach Club, which is situated close to the famed Blue Grotto. With an array of refined and authentic options to choose from, Capri Palace Jumeirah is the go-to dining destination on the beautiful island of Capri this season, the hotel says.
