Caruso, A Belmond Hotel, Amalfi Coast

Relaxed luxury with prime Ravello views

Commanding attention atop the hillside town of Ravello, Caruso, A Belmond Hotel, Amalfi Coast offers a luxurious escape surrounded by Old World charm. The origins of this remarkable property date to the 11th century, when it was built as a noble family palazzo. Two medieval stone lions guarding the entrance emulate the historic atmosphere that has long made this a sought-after haunt.

The attractions that helped build Ravello’s reputation as a peaceful oasis on the Amalfi Coast are only moments away. Stroll through the Villa Rufolo gardens that inspired 19th-century composer Richard Wagner and gaze across the sea from the Terrace of Infinity at Villa Cimbrone. Set off for mountain hikes nearby or spend a day hopping along the nearby coastal villages.

Yet with an infinity pool that is a dream come true, finely landscaped gardens and a tempting array of dining options, you might just find it hard to leave the property at all.
