The best hotels on the Amalfi Coast
Featured on our 2022 Hot List of the best new hotels in the world
If you wanted to land the most plum address on the Amalfi, this would be it—perched high in the cliffs, built into the rock face overlooking the sea, and within view of the sweet fishing village of Conca dei Marini. The property’s original 1960s bones have been enhanced by a magical crew of local Amalfitano artisans, with details like landscaped gardens and museum-worthy vintage pieces making it one of the most exciting Italian arrivals in years. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and sea views, but ask for an infinity-pool option if you don’t want to have to go to the private beach or communal pool to cool off. Ondine Cohane
Monastero Santa Rosa, Amalfi
This 17th-century former monastery dominates the shoreline about a kilometre from Amalfi. The latest glamorous hotel to open on this stretch of coast (Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene were checking in as we arrived), it has knockout terraced grounds and a swimming pool that seems to hover between sea and sky. After more than 10 years’ restoration work, the new-look Monastero has emerged with beautiful, very soft, lovely to walk on Jerusalem-marble floors and 20 cool if austere bedrooms. Some have terraces, but all are furnished with a mix of custom-made pieces and 19th-century antiques collected by the American owner. There are lots of quiet spots in the gardens, but it’s the spa that will be the real pull. Perhaps it’s a bit grandiose for this area, but it’s undeniably fabulous, with natural light, stained glass, an ice cave and gorgeous Santa Maria Novella products. The chef turns out delectable dishes such as potato-and-nettle gnocchi with scampi.
