The Amalfi Coast
Hotels in The Amalfi Coast
You’ll find some of Italy’s best hotels—think luxury properties, spa resorts, and family-run boutiques—along the Amalfi Coast, especially in or near Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello. Even though the hotel scene has an international vibe, most offer a unique personal touch. There’s more value to be had among hotels in the Amalfi Coast during the off-season, but it’s worth spending more to be here during the spring and summer when the weather is reliably sunny.
Here, two of the best hotels on the Amalfi Coast, each with its own distinct personality:
1. Only a 10-minute drive from the beach, the Agriturismo Le Tore is an organic farm flanked by acres of olive groves. Rooms are decorated with heavy wooden furniture for a rustic, barn-inspired look. Ask to take your breakfast in the flower garden.
2. Hotel Caruso, located atop a cliff overlooking the Amalfi Coast, is a more refined option among Amalfi Coast hotels. Built in the 11th century, the hotel was recently renovated; breakfast is included and you can rent bicycles to explore the surrounding countryside.
Three adjoining 19th-century buildings on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, owned and operated by the same family since 1834 and still containing many original furnishings.
The grounds of the 18th-century hotel are perfect for hiking—you’ll explore sprawling apricot groves, a medieval tower, and two nearby Franciscan monasteries.
This charming spot is sing-out-loud gorgeous, and in its mellow atmosphere, we felt like we were staying at a chic friend’s house.
This magnificent grande dame of a hotel is the premier resort on Capri, with 55 rooms and suites that offer sweeping postcard views over the Bay of Naples, the hotel gardens, or the volcanic isle of Ischia.
Iconic 19th-century building steeped in old-world glamour, just off the lively Piazza Umberto Primo and near the island's famous Faraglioni stacks.
In the middle of town, just up the street from tony Le Sirenuse but at one-fifth the price for a sea-view room, the California is the Amalfi Coast’s best budget find.
On the volcanic island of Ischia—famous for its hot springs and therapeutic mud—and outside the small town of Lacco Ameno, sits this chic, secluded, 25-room inn.
This stylish setting on the Gulf of Naples can be a bit of a scene, which is exactly what makes the centrally located—yet oh-so-tranquil—Capri Tiberio Palace a welcome addition.
Formerly Palazzo Sasso
Nearly every room at this mannered villa tucked into the winding backstreets of Ravello has views over the verdant Dragone Valley descending from the mountains down to the sea.
Long a jet-set playground, Italy’s Amalfi Coast is still accessible, thanks to a handful of affordable hotels that includes La Rosa dei Venti.
The San Pietro may be flashier, but nothing beats archrival Le Sirenuse for traditional, dignified luxury.
On a cliff a half-mile from Amalfi, the whitewashed Villa Scarpariello could be your wealthy Italian friend’s private retreat.
Alongside the bay of Naples, this carefully designed boutique hotel by British owner Michelle Lowe is located on the second floor of a 17th-century palace, with eight rooms constructed from natural wood, linen, and stone—predominantly polished white limestone.
