Monastero Santa Rosa stands secluded along the famed Blue Highway near the quaint fishing village of Conca dei Marini.
Centrally located, the hotel is just a 20-minute car or boat ride from the most scenic towns along this glamorous coastline—notably Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.
Although the villages of the Amalfi Coast are a magnet for the wealthy with their luxury hotels and million-dollar yachts sprinkling the sea, what characterizes the region is its effortless Mediterranean simplicity—cobblestone streets, fresh seafood drizzled in olive oil, bougainvillea-covered villas, sweet citrus scents wafting from abundant lemon groves, and unrivaled views.
Viewed from the terrace of Monastero Santa Rosa, facing the southern sun, lies Amalfi, the first Maritime Republic of Italy. Summer brings the Festival of Sant’Andrea, named for the town’s most famous landmark 11th century medieval cathedral. Striking the perfect balance of seclusion without solitude, Monastero Santa Rosa allows guests to determine the tone of their stay, whether they’re looking to disappear for an intimate getaway or gather with the group and make new acquaintances.
It’s hard to imagine that the generous grounds, filled with four levels of gardens, lush landscaping, serve just 20 rooms and suites. Monastero Santa Rosa hosts a fully equipped spa, offering not just treatment rooms, but large-scale amenities that include a sauna, steam, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool and tepidarium.
