Amalfi Coast, Italy – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Combining the allure of a 17th-century monastery with the amenities of a luxury hotel, the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa offers guests a truly special retreat. The hotel and spa, set to open this May, has been fully restored, all while maintaining the structural integrity of the monastery it once was. With each of its 20 rooms overlooking the Bay of Salerno, the Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa is sure to be one of the standout hotels on the Amalfi coastline.
The location’s rich history follows you through the hotel doors and into your suite; each accommodation possesses a carefully selected antique discovered in, or nearby Santa Rosa. Historical photographs of the monastery and surrounding area also help give each room an exceptional sense of place. The unique architecture of the hotel allows for the near-seclusion of each room, allowing guests to decide the level of privacy they desire. For the ultimate stay, book the Sea View Penthouse situated on two levels. Here you’ll enjoy a large living and dining room with a fireplace, as well as a separate bar and walk-in wardrobe. If it’s a private terrace you’re after, book the Sea View Premium Suite or the Sea View Deluxe Terrace Suite.
The hotel offers a world-class spa along with a lavish infinity pool. Other features include high-speed Internet, flat-screen TVs and a variety of gardens where organically grown herbs and vegetables are harvested for the hotel’s own restaurant. Fresh seafood also contributes to the restaurant’s fine Italian cuisine. Guests may also dine outside on the hotel’s Grand Terrace, which showcases dazzling views of the Bay of Salerno as well as the surrounding landscape.
