Two hundred years later, it was ready for a major makeover, which was signed by London interior designer Francis Sultana The Times described as a 'decorating mastermind'. The result is like a love letter to the island, which Sultana immediately fell for when he first visited. 'A place in which to be perfect at ease'That was what he had in mind. To remain in the atmosphere of la dolce vita, he collaborated with Italian craftsmen, which is reflected in works of art, handmade furniture and, most strikingly, ceiling paintings by Robert Ruspoli. 'the artist who reinvented the fresco'. The hotel appears open and light in both architecture and color palette – Mediterranean blue, green and turquoise. Large palms in pots bring the outside in.
