Conca dei Marini, Amalfi Coast
Monastero Santa Rosa
  • Relax following a day exploring Amalfi’s towns in the peace and tranquillity of the stunning gardens, by the obligatory infinity pool, or treat yourself in the spa

  • Explore the hidden walkways from village to village, bypassing the traffic-filled roads with a hike down to Amalfi town, or for those with a head for heights, tackle The Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods). Take a hat, some water, and savour the views

  • Chat to Chef Christoph Bob about the menu and the local produce he uses in Il Refettorio – his passion for high quality local ingredients shines through every forkful

  • Simply stop for a moment, visit the adjoining church and reflect on the centuries of history that is embedded in the fabric of Monastero Santa Rosa. The nods to its past are all around, including as you bite into a Sfogliatella, made from the nuns' original recipe

This painstakingly and lovingly converted 17th Century Monastery is now a stunning boutique hotel perched on a cliff edge above the Bay of Salerno in the fishing village of Conca dei Marini. This unique hotel offers 20 rooms and suites that all come with sea views. A local Neopolitan designer has collaborated with the owner to create an elegant ambiance graced by timeless Italian antiques. Each room still exudes the sense of tranquillity where a nun once stayed—a totally private and intimate retreat bathed in the angelic sunlight of the Amalfi Coast, with an incomparable view of a simply breathtaking stretch of coastline.

The hotel's extensive and beautifully manicured gardens offer guests a place to relax and unwind. Those looking for more privacy can hunt down one of the large day beds that are hidden in quiet spots of the gardens. The hotel's large infinity pool offers magnificent views over the bay and has a small terrace with sun loungers for those wishing to sun worship.

A rarity for the region, the hotel has a large and well-equipped spa and wellness centre, offering steam rooms, thermal pools, a special foot spa, hydro pools and even a rock sauna with crushed ice fountain.

The restaurant uses fresh ingredients sourced from the surrounding Campania region to create delightful Mediterranean gourmet dishes. Meals can be enjoyed indoors on cooler evenings and outdoors under the stars in the summer months on the restaurant terrace.

Top tip:

For rooms with almost your own private terrace, request Nymphaea or Vinea. These two rooms are located at the end of the upper corridor and are right next to a large terrace looking out to sea.
