All have anti-stress elements, which revitalise, re-energise and relax. We pursue a holistic approach so your themed room, background music, and herbal teas all complement the treatment you have chosen. Three of the Cavalieri's pools are outdoors, with Rome as a backdrop. The main outdoor pool is integrated into the hotel terraces and is served by the casual pool bar. Two further pools lie deeper into the hotel's Mediterrean park. One is designed for children where parents have the luxury of sitting in the whirlpool while keeping on eye on their charges. The other basks in the sunshine until late afternoon, nestled between palm and olive trees. For those winter afternoons the fourth pool is indoors beneath a beautiful glass dome. A fountain splashes into the hydromassage pool, a Japanese stone walkway massages the soles of tired feet and a log fire burns in the fireplace.\n##Location\nOverlooking the panorama that has inspired visitors for centuries is Rome's most prestigious address.

Its three-Michelin stars -- the only restaurant in Rome to be accorded such an honour -- attest to the excellence of its cuisine. A wine cellar with over 50,000 bottles, a water menu with 29 choices, olive oils and vintage balsamic vinegars from the best producers in Italy, and the finest ingredients to be sourced in the Mediterranean -- all hint at the pursuit of culinary excellence. But like everything at the Rome Cavalieri, it is also about ambience, about style. Your table is laid with vermeil plates and cutlery. All around are some of the hotel's most charming art treasures ? fine paintings, a rare Aubusson tapestry, Sèvres porcelain, 18th century bronze candelabra, precious imperial furniture and a wonderful collection of hand-blown glass by Emile Gallé. At the centre of the room is an imposing 17th century Celadron vase adorned each day with a spectacular floral composition created by the hotel's master florist. Adjoining La Pergola is our exclusive Cigar Lounge where you can savour a great cigar with a vintage liqueur while enjoying our fine collection of orientalist paintings. But nothing influences the character of an evening at La Pergola so much as Rome itself. Beyond the panoramic windows the Eternal City is spread beneath you. On summer evenings, out on the candlelit terrace, the city twinkles like fallen constellations. The dome of St Peter's seems close enough to touch. In such a setting, with such a menu, La Pergola is one of the world's greatest dining experiences. L'Uliveto Restaurant: On the garden level of the hotel, L'Uliveto overlooks the landscaped park adjacent to the outdoor pool. Featuring Mediterranean and international dishes, its menu leans naturally towards Italian cuisine. Informal and welcoming, L'Uliveto sets high culinary standards and regularly highlights regional specialities, from Puglia to Piemonte. In summer tables are laid outside on the terrace. Tiepolo Lounge & Terrace: situated in the main lobby, the Cavalieri's Tiepolo Lounge is the focal point of the hotel. With terraces extending outside, where cushioned wicker chairs and sofas overlook the pool and the gardens, this is where guests meet and mingle, the place to see and be seen. Its setting beneath the soaring lobby ceiling is enhanced by the spectacular Tiepolo tryptch on one side and exquisitely crafted antique tapestries on the other. Open all day, the lobby is the rendezvous for morning coffee, light lunches, snacks and drinks. During winter, a traditional English High Tea is served every afternoon. In summer, don't miss our supremely creative summer cocktails.
