Naturalis Bio Resort & Spa

A bucolic sanctuary amid the olive groves of rural Puglia

Once an ancient farming hamlet, Naturalis Bio Resort & Spa has been transformed into a serene retreat nuzzled into the countryside of Southern Italy. True to its roots, the estate’s fields are still tended organically, bathing the hotel with uplifting scents of lavender, lemon, rosemary and thyme. They supply flavour-packed produce to the kitchen and heavenly beauty products to the spa.

Each of Naturalis’ spacious, lofty rooms are dressed in modern Italian style, cooled from the heat of the sun by wooden shutters and the canopy of vines that ring the terrace. To live out your Rapunzel dreams, stay in the Tower of the Stars, a fairytale suite set over three floors with unparalleled sights, whether you’re gazing at the 17th century astronomical chart on the ceiling or the panoramic views beyond the window.

Days at Naturalis slip past effortlessly. Rest in the shade of the pergola, take a dip in the tranquil saltwater pool, rebalance with al fresco yoga and soothing spa treatments, or enjoy a chilled glass of wine in the verdant walled gardens. Talented chefs will keep you fuelled from dawn to dusk, inspired with spectacular dishes that celebrate the rich flavours and proud gastronomic heritage of the region. Beyond the ancient walls there is much to explore, from the elegant town of Lecce, dubbed the ‘Florence of the South’, to the myriad coves and clear, shimmering waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas.

Environmentally Conscious

In the heart of the Martano countryside lies an ancient farming village, which has been respectfully brought back to life as Naturalis Bio Resort & Spa. Thanks to the cultivation of Aloe Vera on the 20 hectare Naturalis estate, planted hand-in-hand with the resort’s B-Corp mother company N&B Natural Is Better, and the donation of over 3,000 Aloe Vera plants to the village’s green spaces, Martano was officially recognised as the City of Aloe in 2017 in the hopes of fostering environmental awareness amongst locals and heightening the region’s appeal for younger generations to stay and farm the land. The renewably powered resort is dedicated to enhancing the natural flora of Salento such as groves of olives, pomegranates, citrus fruits, and figs, farmed by following regenerative agricultural practices and used as ingredients in N&B organic cosmetics. Guided tours of the Aloe Vera plantation immerse guests in the natural healing powers of the plant, while complimentary bicycles are available for bucolic adventures.

Cultural Custodians

Inspired by traditional Puglian houses, rooms at Naturalis Bio Resort were sensitively restored and styled using handcrafted design elements made by local artisans, from antique terracotta vases, linen curtains, and mosaics depicting the resort’s greenery, to natural wool carpets woven with a hand loom and paintings made from precious paper sheets with fibres extracted from Mediterranean plants. Some of these artisans are on hand to share their craft with guests in an array of creative, cultural experiences, from basket-making workshops with a master weaver using homegrown rush and reeds, to painting tiles with a local mosaicist in Salento colours and patterns. The indigenous Griko language can be heard throughout the resort, while ‘old sayings’ are placed on breakfast tables with translations to start each morning with a Calabrian talking point. The resort also hosts experiential nights by inviting local musicians and folklore singers to share Salento stories with guests through song.

Community Minded

Showcasing the beauty of the region through the promotion of its people and local produce, Naturalis Bio Resort exclusively works with Salento suppliers – sourcing traditional ingredients such as Leccino black olives, vincotto vinegar, and Pecorino cheese matured in nearby caves from local farmers. Guests are given an authentic taste of these flavours during chef-led cooking classes using the ancient Senatore Cappelli wheat to prepare homemade pasta beneath the resort’s pergola, washed down with organic wine sourced from Salentine vineyards. You can even lend a hand with the harvest of grapes, olives, tobacco alongside local farmers and their families, to connect with the agricultural community and discover the charms of rural life. The resort also runs ALOE FOR SOCIAL in collaboration with ACAM (Martano Merchants & Artisans Association) and the Municipality of Martano to raise funds for a youth social project of ‘solidarity shops’ which sell Aloe Vera Barbadensis plants and Naturalis Aloe Vera Pure Gel.

Naturalis Bio Resort

Back to its roots

As the reincarnation of an 18th century Puglian masseria, or farming estate, Naturalis has an easy affinity with the land. Watched over by ancient olive trees, its fields are still gently tended in harmony with nature, supplying the kitchen with abundant salads, vegetables, fruit and grains. Tour the gardens with a chef to fill a trug with colourful, fresh ingredients for the table.
