ITALY – AMALFI

Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa is located between Amalfi and Positano.

Those looking for a quickest more scenic entry into the region will enjoy getting to Monastero Santa Rosa by an helicopter flight! as a 20’tour will fly over Naples, Capri, Ischia,Vesuvius landing below the Monastero Santa Rosa, which is perched on a cliff, almost a natural “landing” from the sky!!

The original monastery was built on 1681, just beside the Church of Santa Maria di Grado .The sisters baked exquisite sfogliatelle, a shell shaped/filled pastry, which became known as “santa rosa”!  Bianca Sharma the American current owner, plans to start a special tradition honoring the sisters and their heavenly sfogliatelle! Mrs Sharma spent 10 years and the tireless efforts have enabled the bond to continue in the next century with the 2012 reopening of the monastery as a luxury hotel of 20 unique rooms! Each room named for a herb that the nuns would have used in making their medicines from the Monastero Santa Rosa garden!

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, plentiful lounge chairs, and canopied daybeds, serve just 20 rooms and suites. Where most boutique properties might only offer in-room massages, Monastero Santa Rosa hosts a fully equipped spa to rival any major city spa, offering not just treatment rooms, but large-scale amenities that include a sauna, steam, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool, and tepidarium.

Guests are welcome to feel a part of the scene at the library and bar. Engage in a game of chess or cards or read while sipping a martini in the modern cocktail area. Relax down by the pool or discover the resort’s secret gardens, quiet sun decks, and indoor relaxation areas. Get the best of both worlds by making your stay as energizing or relaxed as you wish, by selecting different spaces to suit your mood at any time.
