Insider's View

It will be hard to pull yourself away from the infinity pool. The sublime pool area overlooks the undeveloped mountains and stunning coastline.

The hotel offers complimentary transport to the towns of Amalfi and Positano which are must visits.

The gardens at the Caruso are wonderful - they grow all their own fruit, vegetables and herbs so the colours and smells are amazing.

Don't worry about forgetting your book or charging your Kindle as you can pick up one up on your way to the pool!

The two-day aged dough they use for the pizzas is incredible!

Learn more about the Amalfi Coast’s famous lemons by booking the Lemon Experience with the hotel which takes you to a local farm where the owners explain how lemons are grown and used in cooking and of course how limoncello is made.

There are so many nooks and crannies within the hotel grounds, all with sublime views so honeymooners can find a quiet corner to relax.

Take the hotel's boat tour of the Amalfi Coast. A great way to see the area without the crowds!

Enjoy a picnic with panoramic views in the medieval Sant'Estachio Church, the first Republic of Amalfi.

Description

Perched 365m above sea level, Belmond Hotel Caruso commands spectacular views over the Sorrento Peninsula. Steeped in history and tradition, the hotel has been beautifully renovated and is an ultra-luxurious base from which to explore the Amalfi coast.

Belmond Hotel Caruso is located in Ravello, on the beautiful Sorrento Peninsula. This spectacular hotel is perched on the highest point of the Ravello cliffs, 365m above the sea, with wonderful views over the Amalfi coast.

Belmond Hotel Caruso was originally built in the 11th century as a palace by a patrician Roman family. The present palace was completed in 1600, when much of its ancient splendour and original ornament was restored.

Belmond Hotel Caruso has recently undergone a total refurbishment whilst still maintaining the beautiful frescoed ceilings and some elements of the medieval architecture, and finished with classical Italian furniture. There is a wonderful cliff top infinity pool and two restaurants offering local Italian delicacies.

The hotel is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the views over the sparkling sea, and to explore other delightful places along the Divine Coast including Capri, Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento, or the historical sites at Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum.

Sarah Byrne (Staff)

The Caruso is an icon and for good reason, managing to offer all that you could need as well as a perfect location, to die for pizzas and a stunning infinity pool.

Fiona Bickmore (Staff)

This hotel has got the WOW factor in more ways than one.

I could write all about how amazing it is but words just do not do it justice. The Caruso sits up above the Amalfi coast in a little hilltop town called Ravello so as you can imaging the views are out of this world. From the edge of the infinity pool you can relate to the King of the World moment in Titanic!! The gardeners work wonders here, you can wander through the fruit, vegetable and herb gardens admiring the colors and taking in the different fragrances. Ravello itself has a main piazza and lots of little cobbled streets on which you will stumble across lots of very reasonably priced restaurants.
