La Maviglia, located in the Primitivo wine region, will debut in 2027

‘Ultra-luxury’ resort La Maviglia will open in 2027 in Puglia, moments from the most picturesque beaches of the Italian peninsula. The resort, located in the heart of the renowned Primitivo wine region, will span 202 hectares of olive orchard landscape and boast a world-class golf course.

Designed by the acclaimed Oppenheim Architecture and Enea Landscape Architecture, the resort will offer a suite-only experience with 70 individual suites, in addition to a 20-room hotel integrated into the La Maviglia Golf complex. The latter will also offer a selection of 35 expansive, luxuriously-appointed villas. 

Guests will have access to four chef-driven culinary outlets and a signature, state-of-the-art 5,000-square-meter wellness and medical spa. La Maviglia Golf, meanwhile, will integrate countless cultural touchstones dating back to the 16th and 18th centuries, including ancient water features, olive vineyards and several tree varieties, including cherry, almond, citrus, pomegranate, fig and more.

Sustainability will be a cornerstone of the new property’s design, which will uphold the highest standards for renewable energy, organic vegetable farming, olive oil manufacturing and wine production.

The resort’s site is in close proximity to the municipality of Maruggio, where the protected Monaco Mirante coastline, popularly known as the ‘sea of the seven colors’, is located. This includes the famed ‘Masseria Maviglia’, the 12th-century ‘Castello dei Commendatori’ – a relic hailing back to the Crusades – and other historic buildings set amongst ancient olive groves and pines.

La Maviglia is owned by Ultimate Collection Ltd, a Swiss-based company led by Nicola Cortese, a Swiss/Italian businessman who is also project managing the development.
