The Premises 

The painstaking renovation of Monastero Santa Rosa, a 17th-century monastery, has resulted in a unique Amalfi boutique hotel steeped in history, lavished with top-quality furnishings, and set in gloriously scented tiered gardens. Perched dramatically on the edge of a sheer cliff above that blue, blue Bay of Salerno in the fishing village of Conca dei Marini, the 20 ocean-view rooms and Santa Maria Novella-stocked spa are remarkably spacious and utterly romantic.

Compliments of the House 

€55 per stay to spend in the spa

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: 11am, but flexible, subject to availability.
Rates usually include breakfast.


Spa and fitness facilities, free WiFi throughout. In-room: flatscreen TV, mini fridge.


Ditch the heels – this is steeply stepped terrain.


Over-16s are welcome, the hotel is more suited to romantic escapes.


Infinity pools don’t come more stunning than the heated one here that is more like its own shoreline melting into the azure Amalfi sky-meets-sea horizon: Wander onto its beach-like edge then perch and enjoy an unfettered panorama from the direction of Ravello to Positano. Inside the spa there is a heated hydrotherapy pool.


No pets are allowed at the hotel. The spa is a destination in its own right, if only for a noseful of the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella unguents and a whirl in the thermal spa (Finnish sauna, steam room, ice fountain and more).
Prince Albert of Monaco was one of the first guests when this pocket of heaven opened, naturally.


Each of the former nun’s quarters are named after herbs grown in their own private gardens, and each space is treated to a big bathroom and heart-stirringly beautiful sea views.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Santa Rosa Ristorante wows with Campania flavours done simply but perfectly, many of the organic ingredients picked from the hotel’s own gardens. When it’s chef Christoph Bob who is behind your homemade spaghetti with vegetables and baby squid expect the spectacular; even his wild strawberry take on cheesecake is an extraordinary interpretation – he was plucked from Alain Ducasse’s thrice Michelin-starred restaurant at the Plaza Athénée in Paris. As one might expect, the wine cellar has among its 400 varieties some incredible local wines such as Furore’s DOC white or red are delicious, as well as world-famous award winners.

Liquid Bliss 

Take one relaxed lounge bar, add a watery sunset or starlit sky and you may concur that all that’s missing from toast-worthy scene is a Monastero Martini (vanilla vodka, white cocoa cream, limoncello, fresh cream milk) or a Conca cosmopolitan (vodka, Cointreau, limoncello, cranberry juice). Local wines weren’t worth mentioning until recently: now the hotel can showcase an excellent new generation in its presentation wine cellar.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Sea-lovers can skip touring the coastline by winding, vertiginous road and hop on a boat to Positano or Ravello. The town of Ravello is brimming with beauty, including the gardens of the Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone and the heart-beating views out to sea. While there, pop into the 11th-century Duomo in Piazza Duomo – Ravello is one of the few villages on the Amalfi Coast to boast an ancient cathedral. Catch a classical concert in Ravello (, where there’s a festival every summer. The Amalfi Coast’s incredible scenery has lured many an artist to the area – independent art galleries pepper the path to Positano. The coast itself is riddled with caves – most famous are the Coral Caves and La Grotta Blanca, where the water perfectly reflects a painting of the Virgin Mary. Capri is a great day out from here – the island is only 40 minutes away. Landlubbers, the Sentiero degli Dei (‘Path of the Gods’) is a spectacularly scenic trek along the cliffs. Starting from Praiano, walk a few hundred metres towards Bomerano, until you reach the marble plaque commemorating Giustino Fortunato, the economist who named the path, then follow the mountainside track to the monastery of San Domenico. It’s a strenuous hike, all right, but more than worth the effort for the views alone. Go in the late afternoon for the added bonus of a stunning sunset. Interested in the ancient? Head north to explore the ruins at Pompeii (an hour’s drive from the hotel), or to climb Vesuvius (an hour and a half away).



The airport in Naples is 70 kilometres from the hotel and has regular flights from the UK, Geneva, Milan, Madrid and Berlin.


There are train stations in Naples and Salerno, served by Trenitalia trains ( that will get you around the country, including direct services to Rome.


The drive to Naples should take an hour and a half; to reach Salerno, allow an hour. Amalfi and Positano can both be reached in under half an hour, but you may even prefer to visit the other towns along the coast by boat.
