  • About this holiday

    The five star Monastero Santa Rosa is a hotel in a tranquil setting with a keen focus on well-being. Located within 5 km of Amalfi, this spa hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the Amalfi coast, and is around 90 minutes drive from Sorrento, and 60 minutes’ from Pompei. As you walk around the hotel, you will notice the emphasis on plants, flowers, and trees, which seems to establish a new dimension to the rustic nature of the property. Relax under the pagodas or canopies on the grass-covered terrace, or swim in the infinity pool which seems to disappear into the azure sea.

    Our opinion

    The Monastero Santa Rosa presents perfect balance of tranquillity and indulgence in a historical setting.

    Hotel description

    Perched high on the cliffs, the Monastero Santa Rosa is a five star converted convent with spectacular views over the Amalfi coast and a focus on well-being and luxury. As the former 17th century home of Dominican nuns, the hotel retains a peaceful and tranquil ambience and, at around 2 miles from Amalfi, blends this seclusion and peace with a convenient location. At night, the hotel can be seen from Amalfi due to the lights shining on its stone façade as a beacon of the area’s history. Named after flora found in the ancient herb garden, the hotel’s 20 rooms and suites still possess some of their original features, such as vaulted ceilings and alcoves. The stylised dark woods and Jerusalem stone of the bathrooms add modern, understated luxury. From the wrought iron king-size beds to the extensive terraces and private alfresco dining, the accommodation perfectly blends the hotel’s historical ambience with comfortable and indulgent features and stunning sea views. Previously known as one of the thirty nine castles of Italy, the magnificent Monastero Santa Rosa hosted Jackie Kennedy for dinners composed of fresh seafood and other local ingredients. Today, the hotel restaurant maintains the same ethos of local cuisine combined with elegant presentation. A large terrace is the ideal place to watch the sun set over the sea, while the garden’s warming wood burner and plush seating calls for alfresco drinks beneath the stars. The heated infinity pool appears to blend sea and sky, and the addition of local stone around the edge makes it seem as much a water feature as swimming pool. A walk through the canopied gardens of coloured flowers leads to the Spa, where guests will find the original wine cellar, which is now used as a tepidarium and features indulgent facilities from aromatic showers and herbal steam rooms to treatment rooms. From the hotel, guests may choose to take the complimentary shuttle into Amalfi or take the walking trail titled the Path of the Gods which climbs into the clouds, high above Amalfi.
