Italy is a country with a rich history, beautiful architecture and gorgeous coastlines. Combine these elements into one trip and you are rewarded with the stunning Monastero Santa Rosa, a beautiful 17th Century Monastery, which has been contemporarily renovated into a luxurious hotel and spa.
This hidden Amalfi gem has recently introduced a new wellness package to guests, offering untouched hiking routes, cooking demos and specially tailored spa treatments providing guests with character and charm
unparrallel to any other places Amalfi has to offer. It will be as if you have been transported to a heavenly realm high in the cliffs. Complete escapism.
Monastero Santa Rosa is a family run establishment, containing 20 individually designed rooms, all with sea views and decorated with historical photos of the area and monastery itself, making their guests stay insightful and unique. Only twenty minutes drive from the town of Amalfi and ninety minutes from the airport, the hotel is perched on
the cliffs edge, combining privacy and seclusion with accesibility. Guests can opt to arrive in style by helicopter which offers spectacular views over Naples, Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia, Herculaneum and Pompeii before ending with Sorrento and the Amalfi coast landing just below the hotel.
As part of the wellness package, walkers of all abilities can explore the stunning, almost unknown route called ‘Valle
delle Ferriere’. Guests spend around three hours discovering the natural beauty of the coastline filled with lemon trees, terraced vineyards and lush olive groves whilst embracing the fresh sea air. Accompanied by an expert guide, you will experience exclusive parts of the Amalfi coast and enjoy an al fresco Picnic lunch consisting of local Italian delicacies using only the finest produce from the monastery’s own herb and vegetable garden.
After an afternoon of hiking,
unwiding in the finest spa on the Amalfi coast is on the agenda. Full of character and in a different calibre to that of standard issue treatment rooms in modern hotels, the spa boasts a double height vaulted tepidarium with Pomegranate infused foot spas, heated loungers, a suite, a treatment garden, a natural rock sauna, and a hydrotherapy pool. If the facilities aren’t enough there are a selection of treatments exclusive to the hotel using Santa Maria Novella products aimed at ultimate relaxation and indulgence. The Candle Massage is infamously popular. Outdoors, treatments are available on a private terrace overlooking the Tyrrehenian Sea. Furthermore guests can workout in the gym or take a dip in the heated infinity pool, hanging over the Gulf of Salemo boasting the most ultimate, breathtaking view.
