Anantara opens new hotel in Amalfi Coast

 Thursday, May 25, 2023 


Anantara continues its expansion in Europe, breathing new life into a 13th-century cliffside Capuchin convent in one of Italy’s most popular getaway destinations.

Following extensive renovations, Anantara Convento di Amalfi Grand Hotel officially opens its doors, welcoming guests with elegantly renovated rooms and suites featuring original elements, exciting dining concepts and a world-class spa, all with panoramic views of the Mediterranean.

Just a 15-minute walk from the centre of Amalfi and approximately 90 minutes’ drive from Naples International Airport, the hotel strikes the perfect balance between accessible escape and secluded monastic retreat.

The restoration of the 800-year-old building carefully preserves historic features including ornate cloisters and an on-site Baroque church complete with a marble altar and Majolica floor. A thoughtful preservation of the façade to maintain the original materials and colours.

The interior design takes its cues from the convent and the simple, artisanal lives of its original inhabitants with materials sourced from nature – woods, leathers, natural fibres, and precious metals, blended with the luxurious details for which Anantara is known.

The property’s 52 guest rooms and suites – many of which were first built as monks’ quarters – feature original tiles, vaulted ceilings and lime-washed walls for a sense of simple serenity, blended seamlessly with rich textiles, sculptural furniture, local art, high-tech comforts and Mediterranean views.

The Suite Del Priore – named for its setting in the convent’s priory – boasts frescoes above the four-poster bed and views of the cloisters, while the Suite Dell’Eremita, the hermit’s suite, offers a sanctuary of privacy and aromatic romance in its own tranquil lemon grove. 

Award-winning Anantara Spa wil lfind a unique new setting in a travertine-clad serene space overlooking the sea. In three treatment rooms, expert therapists will offer healing journeys including the property’s signature Convento Di Amalfi massage with citrus oils to refresh and rejuvenate.

Further reinvigoration awaits at the alfresco Fitness Centre, fully fitted with top-of-the-range TechnoGym equipment for ocean-breeze-cooled workouts, and at the newly refurbished cliffside swimming pool.
