Terraces overlook the sea and gardens, and the traditional, elegantly furnished accommodations – some with whirlpool baths – are the perfect expression of Capri's Dolce Vita, famous throughout Italy and the world. Movie stars, royals, politicians and heads of state have all chosen the Quisisana for their vacation on the Island of Capri, confirming the hotel as one of the world's most exclusive resorts."[5] Famous guests of the hotel include Russian writer Maxim Gorky, Russian singer Feodor Chaliapin, Oscar Wilde (together with Lord Alfred Douglas) and Friedrich Alfred Krupp.[6][7] Other notable guests have been Tom Cruise, Sidney Sheldon, Gianni Agnelli, Claudette Colbert, Jean-Paul Sartre, Gerald Ford, and Sting.[4]
