There is no denying it – the Amalfi Coast is one of the most seductive destinations in the Mediterranean. With its charming villages stacked above the dazzling blue waters and the colorful facades contrasting with the rugged cliffsides, the region is unlike any other. Lemon tree-lined winding roads and lush gardens surrounding the beautiful properties, many dating back centuries, add to the impossible charm and each time coming back to Amalfi you cannot help but wonder how such beauty is able to stun you equally as much as the first time. Due to limited space, what you get in return is an array of boutique-sized hotels on the Amalfi Coast that offer the grandeur of surroundings with awe-inspiring views of the impossibly blue waters without compromising on quality. 5-star excellence and first-class service are at the very core of each of these five remarkable hotels on the Amalfi Coast.
Monastero Santa Rosa
The stunning Monastero Santa Rosa hits the nail on the head by achieving an immaculate feeling of seclusion without being isolated. The beautiful 5-star hotel is ideal both for intimate getaways or a reunion with a larger group of friends, immersing yourself in the luxurious joys of life. Despite there only being 20 rooms and suites, the hotel and its grounds are wonderfully breathtaking with the plentiful grounds, packed with 4 levels of gardens, lush landscaping, ample lounge chairs and canopied daybeds. Outstanding among other boutique hotels in the area where only in-room massages are offered, Monastero Santa Rosa has a fully equipped spa to rival major city spas and offering not only treatment rooms, but also a sauna, steam room, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool, and tepidarium.
Hotel guests are invited to be a part of the lush Amalfi scene at the library and bar, where sophistication is embodied the Mediterranean way. All hotel rooms and suites are designed in cool, neutral colors and brightened up with modern art. All rooms feature views over the coast and some larger rooms even have stunning terraces allowing you to take in all the sun and fresh Mediterranean sea air. Only the finest white Italian linens cover the plush beds, and the premium bathrooms finished in sand-colored Jerusalem stone and heated floors, are filled with the most comforting white towels, robes, and Ortygia bath products from Sicily.
Offering some of the most spectacular views, Le Agavi with an ornate marble-and-gilt lobby is built into a cliff and overlooks the gorgeous Positano and the surrounding waters. The hotel has its own beautiful private beach which the guests can reach by elevator. On top of awe-inspiring Amalfi Coast views, Le Agavi also has an outdoor pool and two outstanding restaurants. Tastefully decorated rooms reflect the aesthetics of the Mediterranean region with plenty of light coming through the sea-view rooms and bouncing off from the bright white walls.
Gorgeous accents in colors of deep blue, gold, and turquoise add liveliness that is so essential on this stunning Italian coast where lemon trees infuse the winding streets with refreshing scents and bright pops of color. All rooms also come with their own terraces enjoying the view you’re here for, without a doubt. The rooms are constructed so that the terraces don’t line up on top of one another giving you more privacy and making for an interesting view from higher up in the hotel. While everything at this beautiful 5-star property is perfected and each detail thought through, you’ll find us lounging on the one-of-a-kind sea-view poolside terrace, it is simply that great.
Covo dei Saraceni
Ideally situated to experience Positano and the coastal atmosphere, Covo dei Saraceni enjoys an exclusive and elite location directly on the sea seafront. With its seaside pool enjoying views of both the sea, the mountains, and the breathtaking Positano houses stacked on the cliffside, the hotel is renowned for its style, the colors, and the designs typical to those of Positano villas.
The interiors are finished with original terracotta tiles. White, gold and green are featured throughout the hotel resembling the colors of Positano’s cathedral dome. Communal areas are bright and airy with big windows allowing for plenty of light. All this together creates the signature Mediterranean feel which fits so perfectly the coziness of Positano. The 66 rooms, from the Classic to the Suite, are beautifully furnished in Mediterranean style, enjoying a sea view on the splendid bay of Positano. Large bathrooms are lined with colorful Vietri ceramics and soft, plush cotton towels.
Le Sirenuse has been one of the most well-loved hotels in the Amalfi Coast region ever since 1951 when four Neapolitan brothers took their Positano summer house and turned it into a hotel which embodied the warmth and charm of the remarkable Amalfi Coast. Overlooking the bay of Positano, the 58-room resort is celebrated as one of the finest in all of Italy thanks to its luxurious seaside location and perfect service. Despite that, the hotel is still all about intimate and culture vibes feeling more like a private villa rather than a hotel. To this day the hotel retains its family-owned status with utmost attention to detail that goes into every aspect of managing this stunning property. The hotel is dotted with an eclectic collection of antique furniture and art. Beautiful and bright white walls contrast with the shiny terracotta floors, and an array of potted plants create a fresh feeling while the interiors are enhanced by large French windows opening onto spacious terraces to maximize the views.
Tucked in the medieval hilltop village of Ravello, Palazzo Avino is not only one of the finest hotels in Italy but certainly one of the best on the famed Amalfi Coast. The 5-star luxury hotel is built in a 12th-century private villa that belonged to a noble Italian family. The hotel opened in the late 90s and since then has been welcoming guests who appreciate its stunning appeal enjoying sparkling Mediterranean views and overlooking picturesque fishing villages from 1000 feet above the water as the hotel is perched high on the cliffs.
With lashings of marble, finest fabrics, and antiques, the rooms of this spectacular hotel with vaulted hallways have been re-modeled to fit the highest standards of first-class luxury style. Harmonious flower-filled terraces and manicured lawns complement the awe-inspiring views and create a feeling of a paradise-like oasis on the shores of the Mediterranean. The 43-room hotel feels grand in character yet intimate in size, striking the ideal balance.
