Hotel santa catarina
Here lies an ancient art nouveau seaside villa surrounded by the natural beauty of the Amalfi Coast: the sea and infinite blue sky, the contrast of bougainvillea and the original vegetable gardens that still cultivated by those who appreciate the fruits of the earth.
The hotel is located overlooking the sea, a few steps from the historic center of Amalfi, the ancient and
powerful maritime republic.
The concierge will gladly organize excursions throughout the Amalfi Coast and beyond, though if you are all about spas and wellness, the ‘Gold of Amalfi’ Lemon Massage sounds sublime: lemon-based oil has a toning and smoothing, purifying and vitaminizing effect.
There is a fluid simplicity in the suites, where an expected and relevant white canvas is contrasted by local stone feature walls and private green terraces overlooking the sea. Details are found in the meshing of baroque upholstered bedheads, mosaic floors and hand painted tiles in the generous bathrooms with oversized spa tubs. Heavy set carved double doors open onto the bedroom and separate the sophisticated, classical lounge. Though every suite is unique, there are motifs, antique vases and live plants to create character.
For those of us not calorie counting, Glicine Restaurant is led by Chef Giuseppe Stanzione whose last two restaurants have been badged with Michelin stars under his management. Nothing less than
exceptional, Stanzione plates local produce pristinely where every placement carries its own effect: emulsions, fragrance and explosions of flavor.
With another informal option, the Seaside Restaurant offers wood fire oven pizzas and grilled fish, perfect for a run off the beach. Its driftwood balustrade, cushioned bentwood chairs and bamboo accents create a casual outdoor setting over the sea.
When you may have overindulged, you’ll find the gym has breathtaking views from a cavernous position inside the cliff face, almost as though you’re treading water.
