Caruso, A Belmond Hotel, Amalfi Coast
Perched high above the hilltop town of Ravello, with jaw-dropping views across the Bay of Salerno, the beautiful Belmond Hotel Caruso radiates all the romance and sophistication that has become so synonymous with Italy’s Amalfi Coast.
The hotel’s setting is undeniably magnificent, set in immaculate terraced gardens 1,000 feet above the coast, with spectacular sweeping views and one of the most scenic infinity pools imaginable. While the charming palazzo dates back to the 11th century, the rest of the hotel pays homage to grand Italian styling, with vaulted ceilings, marble hallways, frescoes and antique furnishings. Nearly all of the rooms and suites boast stunning sea views, while the exclusive Villa Margherita, located in the grounds, takes decadence a little further with two suites, a private garden, butler service and a dedicated chef.
Indulge in the vibrant flavours of southern Italy, choosing from menus showcasing fresh, local produce, served with great creativity and flair. Enjoy traditional specialities and innovative dishes at Ristorante Belvedere, either in the elegant dining room or outside on the picturesque terrace. Or for something truly special, opt to dine at the Chef’s Table – a seven-course affair, perfectly paired with the best Krug Champagne.
Discover botanical bliss in the hotel’s luxurious spa, whose signature treatments use only the best natural and organic products. Work up a sweat through the historic streets of Ravello with an expert personal trainer, or cool off with a refreshing dip in the inviting infinity pool. A variety of action-packed excursions and culinary adventures can also be arranged, including historic tours, coastal hikes, and visits to local lemon groves, farms and vineyards.
