Fodor's Expert Review Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa
Via Roma 2, Conca dei Marini, Campania, 84010, Italy Fodor's Choice
One of Italy's most exclusive retreats—in a 17th-century monastery on dramatic coastal cliffs—this boutique hotel has just 20 rooms, all with vaulted ceilings, Italian antiques, modern amenities, sumptuous bathrooms, and dazzling views framed by Mediterranean gardens. With so few people around and so much space, you're likely to feel like a guest at a private villa—one with a fully equipped spa and an astounding infinity pool. The world-class restaurant serves innovative Mediterranean cuisine in a historic dining room or on the terrace, and the spa has a 750-square-foot Thermal Suite set within the ancient walls of the monastery.
