Monastero Santa Rosa
The Amalfi Coast's newest five-star hotel," remarks Town & Country about Monastero Santa Rosa. "It is located not in one of the storied towns of this dramatically sublime (and possibly most visited) of the world's coastlines but in a speck of a hamlet called Conca dei Marini, just west of Amalfi. It occupies a fortress-like 17th century fortress built for Dominican nuns atop a cliff overlooking the Tyrrhennian Sea - which means no tourists, shops and cafes at its front door." [Town & Country] Harper's Bazaar hotel pick for the Amalfi Coast. "Consider the Monastero Santa Rosa: formerly a 17th-century convent, built as if defying the laws of gravity, perched on the edge of the dramatic promontory of Conca dei Marini. It had fallen into disrepair when a far-sighted American heiress, Bianca Sharma, spotted the abandoned ruin while she was sailing along the Amalfi Coast. Sharma bought the property, then spent a decade renovating the building and its terraced gardens, finally opening the Monastero as a small hotel and spa in 2012. Since it only has 20 bedrooms, staying here feels as if one is the guest of a supremely civilised and thoughtful hostess."
