Why we choose Belmond Hotel Caruso

A perfect mix of charm and glam, the Belmond Hotel Caruso entrances with Southern Italian warmth

  • The famous infinity pool suspends you between sea and sky
  • Gore Vidal wrote Myra Breckinridge while staying in Room 9
  • Lush terraced gardens to take a stroll among the perfumes of local lemons

Belmond Hotel Caruso is a dream of a hotel in a dream location. Perched on a cliff, it seems to float above the deep azure Mediterranean Sea. The beautiful gardens are fragrant and romantic while the ancient palazzo, replete with original features, has been beautifully renovated. Everywhere you turn there is history and a story to be told.

The jewel in the crown of this truly exceptional hotel is the infinity pool which teeters on the edge of the cliff, promising the best views of the town of Ravello and along the Amalfi Coast.

We suggest

Take time to visit Ravello—just steps from the hotel is a charming town of pretty houses, artisan boutiques and eateries, all enhanced by the scent of roses and lemon trees and scenery that could easily be a postcard from the 50s.

What you need to know about the hotel

Caruso is an 11th century palace restored into an elegant 21st century hotel

  • Suites include a private garden and magnificent, furnished terrace offering a sweeping panorama of the sea
  • Complimentary daily boat cruises and complimentary shuttle to Amalfi and Positano are available for guest to live the area to the fullest
  • Enjoy the restored frescoes while sipping a cocktail to live music at the Cocktail and Piano Bar

Belmond Hotel Caruso is a refined, romantic home-away-from-home for globe-trotters used to the best. Its magnificent location has attracted many notable figures over the years, including Bloomsbury Group members Virginia Woolf and Lord Keynes. Of course, the hotel dates back much further—to the 11th century—and as you might expect of a millennia-old palace, the rooms and suites vary in size and location.

Room sizes vary widely. It’s all part of the charm, sure, but upgrade if you’re a stickler for space.

Where is it and what's nearby

Set on cliffs beside the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Hotel Caruso seems to drift on a balcony above the Mediterranean Sea

  • A helicopter tour allows you to fully experience the grandeur of the Amalfi Coast from above
  • Explore Amalfi with a unique star-lit tour, discover small artisan shops in Ravello or visit subterranean Naples
  • Like sister city Pompeii, nearby Ercolano was covered in ash when Vesuvius erupted, preserving it almost intact for visitors today

Ravello isn’t as well known as Rome or Venice, but it’s an Italian must-see. Perched 1,150 feet above the sea, Ravello has views so amazing that Wagner chose it as the magical garden setting for his opera, Parsifal. What the town lacks in size, it makes up for in charm: abundant lemon trees, olive groves, a vibrant market culture, ancient streets and secluded beaches.

Belmond Hotel Caruso is just as picturesque as Ravello itself. Just steps from the town center, it’s surrounded by blooming terraced gardens that afford great views of the Amalfi Coast. And if the views put you in the mood to explore that sea a bit, you can hop aboard one of the daily boat excursions to Positano.

For the best views in Ravello slip into the hotel’s infinity pool and gaze down from the edge.

How to enjoy Amalfi Coast

In a country known for La Dolce Vita, Amalfi reigns as a glamorous seaside icon that has won the hearts of Hollywood’s elite and stylish romance seekers for decades: one visit and you’ll join the ranks of the besotted

  • Start your sightseeing at Amalfi’s Duomo, with its gold leaf-embellished façade and millennia of history
  • Discover Amalfi’s legendary papermaking industry (whose products are still a Vatican favorite) with a tour of the Cartiera Amatruda mill
  • Pick up colorful pottery from shop merchants who will spin you a yarn as you browse

Perched on a cliff-side overlooking the Mediterranean, the Amalfi Coast’s stunning beauty makes it Honeymoon Central. But whether you’ve just tied the knot or have a few decades of wedded bliss under your belt, charming coastal towns like Amalfi, Positano and Ravello will make you feel like a teenager again with their postcard-perfect winding roads and sparkling sea views.

This youthful zeal comes in handy when exploring narrow alleys, lanes, villas, churches and marvelous villa gardens. Getting lost in these enchanting villages is the only way to discover their real character, however, so don’t even think about hiring a car; driving round here is only for the brave.

    When to visit Amalfi Coast

    Amalfi and its coastal neighbors pretty much shut down during winter, so plan to visit April through October—though you’ll have to share with the rest of the world.

  • We say

    A shining gem overlooking one of the treasures of Italy—a touch of Shangri-La.

A note from Peter

The Caruso’s cloud-level infinity pool looks like it just drops away into nothing. We could have stayed in it all day. more >
