    The Monastero Santa Rosa, a stunning 20-bedroom hotel converted from a 17th Century monastery, has now opened. The first guests through the doors were Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco, who chose the hotel to relax with friends, including renowned New Zealand rugby star Byron Kelleher, before the Monaco Grand Prix. Perched on the cliff edge of Cape d’Orso between Amalfi and Positano, Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa has been affectionately restored by its American owner into an exclusive boutique hotel with a superb Santa Maria Novella spa.

    Dramatically located on this iconic coastline – an area already boasting the most beautiful vistas in the world – the opening of Monastero Santa Rosa will bring a truly different style of hospitality to the Amalfi Coast. It is a distinctively more modern luxury hotel, built directly into the side of the cliff with the floors connected by a glass-front elevator allowing panoramic views of the hotel’s gardens and the sea. It combines an historical setting with completely unique rooms and boasts an incredible infinity pool literally ‘falling’ off the cliff.

    The hotel consists of a Ristorante, a heated infinity pool, traditional landscaped gardens spread over five tiers, a historic herb garden and a private 12th Century Chapel. The Executive Chef, Christoph Bob will bring a vast amount of experience to the hotel, having held chef positions in some of the top restaurants throughout Europe, including Alain Ducasse’s three Michelin star restaurant at the Plaza Athenee in Paris.
