A true labour of love, Bianca, the American owner of Monastero Santa Rosa spotted this 17th century monastery 11 years ago while sailing along the Amalfi Coast and fell in love with the thought of restoring it to it's former glory, and opening this incredible piece of history as a hotel for us all to enjoy.
Perched high on the mountain-side on the exclusive Amalfi Coast, Monastero Santa Rosa boasts breathtaking views of the Bay of Salerno. Located only a 15 minute drive from Amalfi, a 20 minute boat ride from Amalfi to Positano and 60 - 90 minute drive from Naples airport, the Monastero Santa Rosa is ideally located for a romantic weekend break or as part of a self drive holiday along the south coast of Italy.
This former 17th century monastery has been affectionately and respectfully restored, retaining many of the original features and items of furniture. The 20 rooms and suites all feature ocean views, with some featuring views of the town of Amalfi and others facing the glorious terraced gardens and infinity edge swimming pool.
The wonderfully fragrant gardens spill down the mountain-side in a series of terraces where double sun loungers are placed for you to enjoy the views, tranquil setting and take time to read a book and smell the glorious frangrance of Jasmine while watching luxury yachts sail by.
The sand-lined infinity edge swimming is a real focal point of Monastero Santa Rosa and draws you to take a refreshing dip and enjoy the breathtaking views along the coast. It's quite easy to spend the whole day by the pool with a full bar and meal service available at the poolside and in the gardens.
Monastero Santa Rosa boasts the Amalfi Coast's finest spa, spread over four levels, the Spa at Monastero Santa Rosa harmoniously blends the modern amenities of a spa with the original walls of a 17th century monastery. The spa features four light and airy treatment suites, Tepidarium, indoor hydrotherapy pool, steam room and sauna.

The menu features regional specialties inspired by local fishermen and the freshest organic ingredients from the hotel's own garden.
