Looking over what is arguably Italy's most spectacular coastline, this hotel promises delights around every corner. Rooms are all antique carpets, gold-gilded furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows, with the spectacular Infinito Suite offering panoramic views and a private terrace that hosts a hot tub, plasma screen and speakers. Come evening, indulge in everything from tasting menus at Michelin-starred Rossellinis to the Chef's Table, where just four diners enjoy a bingo-type menu based on an ancient local game. A dream for oenophiles, The Sommelier's Table for two serves excellent wine and cheese in an intimate 12th-century cave setting, or for true indulgence head to the newly-opened Lobster & Martini Bar, where ultra-fresh lobster is served alongside an extensive champagne menu and more than 100 martinis created into expertly-mixed drinks by the resident mixologist.

For those who enjoy exploring, the hotel is perfectly positioned – and willing – to organise local cookery classes, boat trips along the Amalfi coastline, wine tasting, guided walks and more. Nothing is too much trouble at this family-owned-and-run hotel, and you're just moments away from the glamorous coves of Capri and the world-famous historic sites of Pompeii. Then there's the hotel's unique Clubhouse by the Sea that offers guests complimentary access to the beach and a swimming pool alongside the rustic Clubhouse Restaurant that's perfect for long, lazy lunches.

Come back to the luxurious spa with a hydro pool, sauna, Turkish steam bath and massage cabins alongside a spectacular outdoor heated pool and rooftop solarium, host to a bubbling whirlpool that's perfect for taking in the view with a glass of wine or two.
