Few places in the world can surpass the spectacular beauty, drama and allure of the Amalfi Coast. When you couple that with top notch hotels ranging from chic island classics to hilltop retreats and some of Italy’s best cuisine, it’s not surprising that this region of Italy is one of our most popular.
One of our favourite places to stay is the Hotel Caruso Belvedere, stunningly situated in the Ravello hills. Orient-Express Hotels has impeccably restored this former 11th century palace which simply oozes character and elegance. There are just 48 rooms and suites, some with a private garden.
In Amalfi itself, we love the Hotel Santa Caterina. This grand five star hotel, perched on the cliffs, has a charmingly relaxed atmosphere and we highly recommend the seafood cuisine. Soak up the views from the privacy of your terrace or the hotel’s private beach.
On Capri, the Caesar Augustus is a Relais & Chateaux gem with just 55 rooms and spectacular terraces whilst the Hotel Luna enjoys a striking position in Capri Town and offers comfortable four star accommodation.
Escapists should head for Ischia’s Mezzatorre Resort and Spa, a luxurious but low-key hotel built around a 16th century watchtower.
