Summary

A stay at Belmond Hotel Caruso is unlike any other. To encounter rooms with original frescoes and vaulted ceilings is gorgeous enough, but look beyond them to views over the majestic mountains and glittering sea and you reach another level. Even the hotel's infinity pool has an ethereal quality, bewitching the mind with the way it blends sea into sky. Then there are the sumptuous gardens, rich with melodic birdsong and lovingly tended by Gaetano, who’s waiting to take you on a tour.

And the extraordinary cuisine of Chef Mimmo di Raffaele, who creates masterpieces on a plate. Don't forget the spa either – but before anything else, order a Negroni, breathe in the fragrant air and just sit and soak up the views. There’s plenty of time to explore later.

Set into the cliff edge, over tiered groves of lemons and olive vines, Caruso seems to float above the ocean. Rooms make the best of the view, with balconies overlooking the sparkling sea. Interiors also enchant: airy and elegant, with hand-picked antique furniture and four-poster beds. Every room and suite in this ancient palace is unique, so keep an eye out for intriguing historical details.

Location

Bordering the Tyrrhenian Sea, in southern Italy, this ruggedly beautiful stretch of coast has been seducing visitors for centuries.  Where can you pluck sweet lemons from the trees and eat them like oranges? Admire pastel-coloured houses cascading down to the bluest crystalline waters? Or steer your moped round hairpin bends, weaving through scenery that has inspired the likes of JMW Turner, Virginia Woolf and DH Lawrence? Welcome to the Amalfi Coast.

This stretch of coastline has exerted an irresistible allure since antiquity. Greek sailors were entranced by its rocky drama, fancying it home to mythical creatures, and wealthy Romans constructed grand villas on the cliffs. In the Middle Ages, Amalfi was a powerful maritime republic and the region was renowned for paper production – you can still explore the ruins of ancient mills in the Valle dei Mulini.

By the 19th century, writers and artists on the Grand Tour were discovering the area’s unspoilt beauty. Among them was Richard Wagner, who was so inspired by the gardens of Villa Rufolo, in Ravello, that he was able to complete his opera, Parsifal. It’s in this lofty corner of paradise that you’ll find Belmond Hotel Caruso. The landscapes that captured the composer’s heart are waiting to steal yours.

The hotel is about 65 km away from Naples Airport (NAP) ; courtesy shuttle to Amalfi and Positano.
