Why we choose Monastero Santa Rosa

The secluded Monastero Santa Rosa delivers the best of the Amalfi Coast in exquisite privacy

  • The outdoor heated infinity pool seems to spill into the Mediterranean
  • Get lost in four levels of terraced gardens
  • Take a free shuttle to nearby Amalfi

This 17th century convent has been lavishly converted, oozing contemporary chic within its warm stone walls.

What’s especially striking is how extensive the property and its facilities are, especially when you consider they only offer an intimate 20 rooms and suites. Instead of scraping by with the bare essentials and great service, they have a full spa, restaurant and gorgeous gardens with comfy lounge chairs and canopied daybeds—plus great service.

What you need to know about the hotel

A boutique experience with all the amenities of an urban mega-hotel

  • The spa incorporates the Italian tradition of thermal baths and offers facilities like a mosaic-tiled experience shower and tepidarium
  • The Sea View Premium Terrace Suite has a huge terrace outfitted for alfresco dining and a Jerusalem stone bathroom with double-wide tub
  • Among the highlights at Mediterranean-style Ristorante Santa Rosa you’ll find pasta and olive oil produced exclusively for the restaurant

Thanks to painstaking, decade-long renovations, Monastero Santa Rosa’s 20 rooms are thoroughly modern and beautifully decorated, yet retain the same sense of history that flows throughout the property. From the portal, which boasts three centuries of engravings, to the sfogliatelle pastry invented by the monastery’s nuns in the 17th century, there’s no escaping the (still-present) past here.

The hotel has a long list of amenities designed to entertain and relax guests, including a library, cocktail area, gardens, gourmet restaurant and decadent spa. You can also take advantage of onsite bocce ball and an outdoor fitness area equipped with the latest machines.

Where is it and what's nearby

The hotel is housed in a 17th century monastery, high on a hill overlooking Amalfi

  • Tour Positano on foot, ascending and descending its celebrated stairs, stopping for custom clothing and to view the green- and gold-tiled church duomo
  • A 20-minute ferry takes you to Capri, an island noted for designer boutiques, turn-of-the-century villas and an ancient Roman cave
  • A kayak tour of the coast gives you fascinating views of vineyard-studded cliffs, architecture and natural wonders you can’t see any other way

Monastero Santa Rosa is a seaside gem perched high on a cliffside in Italy’s Amalfi Coast. This fabled area has attracted the rich and famous for decades, drawn to its La Dolce Vita lifestyle and gorgeous scenery. It’s littered with quaint villages that look like they’re part of a movie set, though Monastery Santa Rosa is located far from the crowd along the Blue Highway. From here, take a short but scenic boat ride to glam destinations like Positano, Amalfi and Ravello or tackle the abundance of walking trails in the Amalfi Coast. Of course, the Mediterranean also provides plenty of opportunities for kayaking, windsurfing and scuba diving.

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.
