Killer Views Of and From Monastero Santa Rosa on the Amalfi Coast
March 28, 2014 at 11:06 AM
There are definitely killer views from Monastero Santa Rosa, located as it is on Italy’s almost painfully scenic Amalfi Coast. We’ll get to those in a second, but perhaps unusually we’ll start this time with this killer view of the hotel itself, because it is just as good.
Perched on a rocky outcrop and beautifully lit at night, it began life as the name suggests as a monastery in the 17th century. These days, it’s a pretty stunning hotel with just 20 rooms and suites and – what else would you expect – a cliff-edge pool. Check it out after the jump.
If where you are, you are suffering through a last bout of winter cold, a few hours on one of those sun loungers would take care of any vitamin-D deficiency you’re dealing with in no time.
All rooms have sea views, stretching far across the Gulf of Salerno, ranging from entry-level Superior Rooms to the Owner’s Suite. There is a full spa, rich Italian food served on shaded terraces, and secluded spots for drinks at sunset.
Rates start at €390 ($535) a night in low season and a considerably higher €590 ($810) in high season (late May to mid-October) and includes breakfast, WiFi, and daily shuttle service to Amalfi itself.
