“With former guests including Greta Garbo and Jackie Kennedy you know you are in the lap of luxury. The infinity pool, suspended between sea and sky, is straight from the movies as is the al-fresco, restaurant. Hollywood glamour continues in the bedrooms with chandeliers, mosaic tiles and balconies.”

Hotel Review

This 11th century property has witnessed many a famous face over the years. A holiday hideaway of the rich and famous, and following a $30 million restoration this hotel retains its old school glamour and charm. Located on a cliff-edge overlooking the Bay of Salerno, rooms enjoy stunning coastal views and include private balconies and terraces. Decorated with classic Italian style, rustic exposed stonework complements gold framed paintings, antique lighting and the finest Italian silks. Deluxe Rooms feature decorative mosaic tiling and the bedroom suite has a private living and dining room.Chef Mimmo di Raffaele treats guest to a superb selection of fresh, local Mediterranean dishes at the popular Belvedere Restaurant. Enjoy an unforgettable al-fresco dining experience amongst the fragrant rose bushes. Pick up some top tips from Gaetano Amato, resident gardner, who will lead you through the olive, lemon and pomegranate rows. The real piece de resistance is the enormous infinity pool, which appears to blend seamlessly between sky and sea. If not suitably pampered spend an afternoon in the spa and treat yourself to one of its signature massages. Belmond Hotel Caruso is the ultimate romantic getaway, and perfect for experiencing the Amalfi Coast in five star style.

HOTEL CARUSO, RAVELLO, AMALFI COAST, ITALY

For sheer jaw-dropping drama, Hotel Caruso is hard to beat, dramatically perched on a clifftop halfway between sky and sea on the pinnacle of lovely Ravello on the Amalfi coast.
