Why We Love This Hotel

- "A former 17th-century convent turned blissful resort, blessed with five-star service" -- Conde Nast Traveler
Set on a clifftop, Monastero Santa Rosa is a converted 17th-century convent overlooking the Bay of Salerno on the Amalfi Coast.
Painstakingly restored over the course of 10 years, the hotel features an original stone exterior and valued ceilings, and is decorated with antiques and abstract artwork. Located in the fishing village of Conca dei Marini, it makes a great base for exploring the Amalfi Coast. Ravello and Positano can both be reached within 40 minutes and it's around an hour's drive from Sorrento.
The hotel is set in a 4-tiered garden where many of the restaurant's ingredients are grown and there's a heated infinity pool overlooking the coastline. The cavernous spa is located in the convent's former wine cellar and features Roman-style baths, a rock sauna, a steam room and a hydrotherapy pool. The restaurant serves dishes that are typical of the region and the wine cellar stocks over 400 bottles.
All 20 rooms are individually decorated and have sea views and huge bathrooms. Each room is named after different herbs that the nuns would have grown in the garden.
