Hotel Santa Caterina
Located on the famous Amalfi Coast, just a few minutes away from the famous town of Amalfi, the Santa Caterina enjoys a panoramic coastal setting of incomparable beauty. The hotel is at the summit of an extensive property, which begins along the Amalfi Coastal drive and tumbles down to the water on a series of landscaped natural terraces. Elevators and scenic garden paths transport you past citrus groves and gardens to the seaside level, which includes a sea water heated swimming pool, sunbathing decks, gym, café/bar and open-air restaurant.
You will find lush natural scenery which ranges from evergreen to tropical and best of all, can enjoy it at any time of the year. Winters are mild in Amalfi, spring comes very early and summer ends late, with a Mediterranean Summer that extends well into the autumn months.Another important feature is the Spa, located in the main building, an exclusive wellness centre where guests can indulge in a fabulous range of face and body treatments, performed using essences of Mediterranean herbs and citrus fruits, all designed so as to re-establish natural balance, and leave you feeling relaxed, energized and rejuvenated.
The hotel is completed by a steam bath, sauna & hydrotherapy shower facilities. Each of the 67 luminous rooms and suites have a balcony or a terrace or large windows with views of the Amalfi coast. Many have a large terrace or garden. There are two restaurants.
From early-May to late-October, lunch is served on a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea and pool. The regional menu includes wood-fired oven pizzas, seafood-sauced pastas, grilled local fish and buffalo mozzarella grilled in the hotel’s own lemon leaves.
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.
