Cocumella

Via Cocumella 7, Sant'Agnello, Campania, 80065, Italy

In a cliff-top garden overlooking the Bay of Naples, the Cocumella occupies a baroque monastery, complete with frescoed ceilings, antique reliquaries, and a marble cloister. The lobby is Italian-Victorian, and 19th-century grace notes continue in grand suites, which have stone fireplaces, Empire-style bureaus, and marble-clad bathrooms; even smaller rooms have their charm. Added amenities include a vast pool, a beauty-spa and exercise room, a 90-foot-long 19th-century yacht for daily excursions on the bay, and even summer-night chamber-music recitals in the monastery's former church. Though its luster has faded a bit, many conoscenti adore this hotel, once one of the most aristocratic in Italy.
