The Amalfi coast is, and has long been, one of the world’s favorite high-end destinations in the middle of the last century, particularly, it was the escape of choice for much of the luxury-yacht set.
World's Top 50 Hotels, Belmond Hotel Caruso bursts with color. Its gardens is a sensory bonanza, and the extraordinary infinity pool makes it seem as if you could float out to the turquoise Amalfi Coast a thousand feet below. Originally built as an 11th century palazzo by the D'Afflitto family from Rome, it has played host to many famous names. Within the grounds some unusual white cave dwellings, dating back to the 10th and 11th centuries, were recently discovered.
You can also enjoy the daily complimentary boat excursions along the Amalfi Coast on board traditional wooden boat, Ercole, as well as the courtesy shuttle to Amalfi and Positano. Many fun activities are available for family and couple, such as Amalfi tour by night on a Vespa or Pizza-making classes within Pizzaiolo.
Set on the highest point of Ravello of Italy, it is perched on a cliff top 1150ft (350 meters) above the sea level overlooking the spectacular Mediterranean of the Amalfi Coast and Gulf og Salerno. Naples International Airport Capodichino (NAP) is approximately 65km from the hotel, approximatly 50 minutes drive. Ferry boats to Capri and Ischia can be taken from Amalfi or Sorrento.
ROOMS & SUITES
50 guestrooms only, including 27 suites, have been splendidly restored allowing you to relax in elegant and spacious surroundings. More than 90% of the rooms enjoy a stunning sea view from their private terrace or private garden. Look too quickly, and you may think the rooftop infinity pool extends straight into the Mediterranean.
There are wood-fired pizzas and roasted seafood entrees to be enjoyed alongside the Belvedere Restaurant’s ancient rose bushes. The generous outdoor spaces, including a lovely, sun-dappled breakfast terrace and a hilltop pool area with an infinity-edged extravaganza that seems to float above the Bay of Salerno, have sweeping views of the sea.
