  • About this holiday

    Expressions Holidays highly recommends Hotel San Pietro to honeymooners looking for a sophisticated stay in a stunning location. Just outside Positano, the hotel enjoys fabulous views of the charming small town cascading down the cliff side. All rooms here have a sea view and distinctly Neopolitan flavour. For honeymooners, we recommend the hotel’s individually designed 'special' rooms which include junior suites and suites and are so called because of their size and particular location within the hotel. Hotel San Pietro is a wonderful base for exploring Positano, Amalfi and Ravello along with trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Sorrento and Capri. It is equally just as good for those looking to stay put, relax and not venture too far from the hotel.

    Our opinion

    The Hotel San Pietro is famous for its terraces, which are adorned by flowering plants and shrubs

    Hotel description

    Hewn out of the rugged cliffs on a headland just outside of Positano, Hotel San Pietro occupies a stunning location and is one of the most prestigious hotels on the beautiful Amalfi Coast. A 5 star hotel and Relais & Châteaux member, the San Pietro is famous for its terraces, which are adorned by flowering plants and shrubs, as well as its panoramic views and high standards of hospitality. Amongst the pink and purple bougainvillaea that colour the hotel there is ample space to relax, from the sun terraces and the private shingle beach that benefits from bar service to the swimming pool that is reached by a lift inside the cliff face. Further relaxation can be enjoyed in the Turkish Bath or by making use of a number of well-being packages that are available for guests, including face and body treatments and massages. Vegetables are grown in the terraced gardens and are made use of in the hotel’s restaurant, which has been awarded one Michelin star. The hotel is enlivened throughout by plants, from the spacious lounges to the guest bedrooms. All bedrooms have a sea view and a private balcony or terrace and have a distinct Neapolitan flavour, with ornate ceramic floor tiles, vaulted ceilings and luxurious white upholstered armchairs. San Pietro is a wonderful place to immerse yourself, offering sophisticated luxury in a superlative setting.
