Indagare Loves

  • La Pergola, the city’s only 3 Michelin Star restaurant, offering an elegant and seasonal menu with unmatched views of the city below.
  • The extensive on-site spa and fitness facilities
  • The expansive grounds and four swimming pools (three outdoor, one indoor) offer refuge from the city chaos.


The first European property in the Waldorf Astoria crown, this hotel, at the northwestern end of the city, has the feel of a full-fledged resort. With fifteen acres of grounds, including a large pool near a grove of palm, umbrella pine, oak and magnolia trees, the Cavalieri, as it’s often called, offers a haven for when the city’s crowds become overwhelming. Don’t be put off by the exterior, which resembles a circa-1960 coastal condo complex; the 370-room hotel has every modern amenity.

The common spaces are busy and grand, and the formalness extends to the rooms. Decorated in a classic style, the rooms have a navy and gold color palette and are adorned with brocade curtains and plush velvet upholstery. Be aware the hotel has both smoking and non-smoking categories, so be sure to specify if you would like a non-smoking room.

There’s even a three-Michelin-star restaurant, La Pergola, on the premises, as well as more casual poolside dining options and multiple bars. If you are traveling as a family, the large guest rooms will give everyone more breathing space than at most city center hotels and you’ll appreciate the children’s pool and sprawling grounds. There’s also a top-ranked spa with water treatments and personal trainers. The hotel is rather isolated in a residential district quite a distance from the historical center. Budget at least 30 minutes in a taxi to reach the city’s main attractions.

Who Should Stay

The Cavalieri is for those who are looking for a resort experience with access to the city, as opposed to a central location. Families will love the pools and the expansive grounds and facilities. Also for those who appreciate a classic and formal decor as opposed to something modern and chic.
