Pure class and scenic views. This could well be a good way to describe Belmond Hotel Caruso, not only one of the best Ravello hotels but also one of the best in the world. Having the privilege to stay at posh Belmond Hotel Caruso is something like levitating from the earth surface and being taken to a magical haven where time seems to stand still and nature puts on display its full splendor. The spectacular hotel pool works more like a water mirror where mountains, clouds and deep blue tones come all together in perfect harmony. The panoramic views enjoyed from Belmond Hotel Caruso are legendary and are best enjoyed pretty much from everywhere within the hotel: the room or suite with beautiful balconies, the restaurant, the breakfast area, the matchless gardens... During the warmer months, guests staying at this Ravello hotel are presented with complimentary cruises and a shuttle to nearby villages of Amalfi and Positano.
Hotel Palumbo, a five-star Ravello Hotel housed in a restored, historic 11th century Italian villa (Palazzo Confalone), is one of the best places to stay in the Amalfi Coast for those looking for sensational views. Mastering the Gulf of Salerno, this luxury hotel also extends to a modern annex named Casa Palumbo. Both buildings come with rooms and suites with balconies and the so desired room view. As the night falls in Ravello, prepare yourself for a romantic dinner at Restaurant Confalone. Ask for an outside table and dine with dramatic perspectives of the surrounding mountains and the sea below. Should luck be on your side, you may even get to see the full moon rising. For more relaxing moments at Hotel Palumbo pay a visit to the hotel's spa or simply stroll around its panoramic gardens. Duomo di Ravello, the village's little cathedral, is only a couple of minutes away.
With its doors opened since 1934, Hotel Villa Maria, a reference in Ravello, is a solid four-star hotel choice with plenty of panoramic views and Italian charm. To begin with, Hotel Villa Maria puts on display an impressive collection of Murano glass lamps and distinct Vietri tiles, allowing an atmosphere of Italian authenticity that is harmoniously spread throughout the hotel. Even if Villa Maria doesn't offer a swimming pool, guests are invited to enjoy the 20-meter pool from nearby Giordano Hotel or the captivating Villa Eva gardens. Worth of a visit is Villa Maria's restaurant, with phenomenal vistas and an exceptional kitchen (most products are organic and sourced locally) - most certainly one of the best in Ravello. At Hotel Villa Maria guests are invited to take cooking lessons at "Nonna Orsola", the hotel's own cooking school, a great opportunity to learn some of the preparation secrets of true, Italian food.
There is one thing all guests know when they choose historic, boutique Hotel Villa Fraulo for their stay in Ravello: they will be assigned a room with a breathtaking view, ideal to contemplate the sun gently rising over the Amalfi Coast. In fact, all Hotel Villa Fraulo 27 rooms and suites come with this ultimate perk. Other thing that guests will learn fast: the hotel's terrace is nothing less than marvelous, boasting tremendous vistas over the sea, nearby villages and surrounding mountains. Did we mention the strikingly beautiful infinite pool with out-of-this-world panoramic views? Well, the sum of these atributes, alongside exceptional service and attention to detail, makes from Hotel Villa Fraulo one of the best Ravello hotels, specially for those looking for great value for money on their Amalfi Coast holidays. Hotel Villa Fraulo is just moments away from Villa Rufolo, an historic building in the center of Ravello that deserves a visit, specially due to its fabulous gardens with a priceless panoramic view.
Looking to work on your Amalfi Coast tan? Well, this four-star Marmorata hotel, a former paper mill, just next to Ravello, might be a perfect fit. One of our favorite things about Best Western Albergo Marmorata (apart from the direct sea views) is the ability to sun-bath next to the sea. The hotel's pool is located on top of a rock, from where stairs may take you to sea level, allowing swimming directly on the Mediterranean. Rooms, inspired in nautical elements, are not on the large size but do offer all the needed amenities for a comfortable stay (booking a room with a sea view is definitely reccomended). While staying at Best Western Albergo Marmorata don't miss out on a visit to nearby Minori and Amalfi, both within walking distance from the hotel.
