  • About this holiday

    The five star Hotel Palumbo is an exceptionally intimate boutique hotel in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast. With just 13 rooms, this former palace offers a very exclusive and grand taste of the area’s heritage. 11th century eastern archways, 18th century Amalfi ceramics, and Roman columns from 600BC comprise this stunning and intriguing building. This is the perfect base from which to explore a coastline that is as eclectic and enchanting as the hotel itself.

    Our opinion

    This is a remarkable hotel rich in exotic history, set high on the rocky Amalfi Coast.

    Hotel description

    The Hotel Palumbo in Ravello is a five star converted palace graced with sensational high altitude views across the blue sea and terraced mountains of the Amalfi Coast. As you approach and enter, the individual features of the hotel take you through the vast history of both the Hotel Palumbo and the surrounding area. You will observe ancient Greek and Roman marble columns from 600BC, 11th century pointed arches from the east, colourful Amalfi Coast ceramics, a Medieval architectural base, and a unique character brought to the building by the family that has owned the hotel for over a century. In the Confalone Restaurant salon, which dates back t the 17th century, ornate frescoes of red, green, and gold fold to the shape of the archways in the vaulted ceiling and complete this fine-dining experience. Dining here is overlooked by Guido Reni’s painting of San Giovanni Battista. Alternatively, dine on the terracotta-tiled, red-canopied terrace looking out across the sea. Outside, at the bottom of a garden rich with the scent of orange-blossom, are 18th century pergolas entangled with vines. Guestrooms have a traditional style, with floral linen bed covers, antique cabinets and drawers, and pastoral scenes framed on the walls. Each one has particular features that are unique in the palace, such as Vietri tiles, small flights of stairs, or curved ceilings. Quirky floor tiles and upholstered furnishings add a touch more individual character. The Hotel Palumbo is a historic five star hotel that offers a very personalised service and an atmosphere unmatched on the Amalfi Coast.
