The beach club, exclusively for hotel guests, is located at the foot of the mountain and a complimentary daylong shuttle service to and from the hotel is available.
Rossellinis Restaurant – hotel’s formal restaurant, the one Michelin starred Rossellinis, features a panoramic sea view terrace where guests can taste the best of Italian haute cuisine in a gorgeous atmosphere.
Deemed by UNESCO to be an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, the Amalfi Coast is where coastal mountains plunge into the sea in a stunning vertical scene of precipitous cliffs, picturesque towns and lavish forests.
Among the glittering string of coastal gems, legendary Positano and Amalfi sparkle the brightest, while mountaintop Ravello has the glossy fame of its impressive villas and Wagnerian connection. The glitzy island of Capri is only a hydrofoil or ferry ride away.
Aside from its sheer beauty, the region is home to some superb restaurants and hotels. It is also one of Italy’s top spots for hiking, with well-marked trails providing a great means of getting away from the coastal clamor.
