Forget the Food, Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa Offers Divine Taste of the Italian Coast

Salerno, Italy—Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The Amalfi Coast just got more breathtaking with a new resort and spa of 20 rooms in Conca dei Marini, a town Lee Radziwill included fondly in her memoirs. Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa can helicopter guests from Naples Airport, over Amalfi’s corkscrew turns, to this converted convent dating to the 1600s. From a height of 1,000 feet, every room has views of the sparkling Mediterranean and terraced hillside. Like in a private villa, rooms are individually decorated with hand-selected antiques amidst contemporary furniture. Outdoor delights include dining al fresco, a boccie court and heated infinity pool facing the sea. The duplex Sea View Premium Owner’s Suite, spanning more than 1,450 square feet, is ideal for an intimate soiree: An open-plan living/dining room with fireplace and separate bar area claims the lower level, while a dramatic curved stairway leads to a king-size bedroom (about $3,060 a night). Gourmet cuisine includes homegrown ingredients and the nun-invented heavenly pastry sfogliatella. Spa treatments use Santa Maria Novella products, and original stone vaulted ceilings and rough-hewn walls enhance the Roman tepidarium. Recent visitors to this haven include Prince Albert II of Monaco and PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, who found Monastero full of character, yet technologically up to the minute.
