Set in a grand palazzo on the highest point of Ravello, overlooking an incomparable panorama of the Bay of Salerno, this hotel has always been considered a corner of paradise. With buildings dating back to the 1600s, this hotel has captured the romanticism of Ravello as since the late 19th century when Pantaleone Caruso and his wife opened the first hotel on the site. Now part of the exclusive Belmond hotel brand, it shimmers with modern luxuries while still maintaining historic charm with its 18th-century frescoes, Norman arches, and beautifully terraced garden setting.
Today, fans rave about the rooftop dining area and heated infinity pool with views so stunning it feels as if you're swimming between sea and sky. The lush hillside garden includes an herb garden that provides seasoning for the renowned Belvedere Restaurant, Poolside Bar, and the Cocktail and Piano Bar, where happy guests can savor a great Bellini with a side of stellar views. Rooms are truly sumptuous—most have a sea view, and some have a private garden. The bar's patrons are welcome to wrap up the evening by joining the pianist for a song.
