In addition to the Kapuhala’s many sustainability initiatives, such as complete energy self-sufficiency and largely plant-based dining, many materials in Kapuhala Sicily such as tiles and furnishings are quality antique items collected in the region that were repurposed or restored to find a new beginning in this eco-conscious project.

All dishes are paired with the hotel’s very own wines made by the famous winemaker Salvo Foti, using the island’s indigenous grapes picked from Kapuhala’s vineyard and produced with natural winemaking techniques. In-house guests will enjoy a wider array of Kapuhala flavors from homemade style breakfasts in the comfort their own rooms to farm-to-table dinners made with the freshest ingredients picked moments before being cooked. Guests will also enjoy the daily Happy Hour “Aperitivo” with light refreshments overlooking the rolling hills of Kapuhala’s vineyard.
