Stay at Belmond Caruso
It will seem like a shame to disturb the immaculate reflection of clouds on perfectly still water – but the infinity pool is just too inviting not to dive into. Don’t worry, the view from the pool’s edge of the shimmering Gulf of Salerno 300 metres below will be compensation enough.Set in extensive grounds of an 11th-century palazzo amidst lush Mediterranean gardens, the Belmond Caruso would be a beautiful establishment wherever it was located. But set as it is on a mountainside overlooking one of Amalfi’s most charming towns, this superb luxury hotel is about as romantic as they come.
Perched on an incredible hilltop vantage point above the charming town of Ravello, with superlative views in all directions. Just a five-minute stroll from Piazza del Duomo. Short shuttle bus/car rides from the coast’s other prime destinations.
50 rooms and suites, many of which boast truly remarkable historical design. Families and larger parties can be happily housed in interconnecting rooms. Those wishing to take things to another level of luxury should opt for the stunning Villa Margherita, a two-suite guesthouse with a butler and private chef.
Who is it for
Couples and families. Especially those looking for a fabulous room with a seriously jaw-dropping view. The small spa and lack of a sauna or steam room may disappoint serious wellness addicts.
Facilities & activities
Maybe one of the most beautiful infinity pools in the world. Lush Mediterranean tiered gardens cascading down the hillside. The delightful Belvedere restaurant with a fiercely romantic terrace. A small spa. Pizza-making classes for kids.
