Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa Review

Set in a 17th-century monastery perched on the dramatic cliffs above the Amalfi Coast, this exquisite boutique resort is destined to become one of Italy's most exclusive retreats. Opened in 2012, the meticulously restored property offers just 20 rooms and suites surrounded by four levels of beautiful Mediterranean gardens. With so few people and so much space, you're likely to feel like a guest at an extraordinary private villa—one with a world-class restaurant, fully equipped spa, and what might be the most dramatic vanished-edge infinity pool on the coast. Guest rooms and suites are named for local herbs and feature vaulted ceilings, Italian antiques, and dazzling sea views, along with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access, and sumptuous en-suite bathrooms. The ristorante offers innovative Mediterranean cuisine served in the historic dining room or on the breathtaking terrace, and the spa has a 750-square-foot Thermal Suite set within the ancient walls of the monastery. Room rates are far from affordable, but they do include a lavish breakfast. If you're looking to splurge, it doesn't get better than this.
