Sea View Deluxe Open Space Deluxe Suite
The Sea View Deluxe Open Space Suite (Laurus) is the only one of its kind in the hotel and contains unique historical context. Once a nun’s refectory, the open-plan room reflects and preserves this heritage. An elegantly furnished living room stands before the bedroom, with its green-and-gold, antique-framed king-size bed, and large bathroom. This bedroom has ample closet space due to the additional storage provided by the custom-made, stylish closet partition that separates the bedroom space from the living room sitting area.
The entire space looks out directly over the gardens, infinity pool, and Gulf of Salerno. The extraordinary bathroom is designed in dark wood and Jerusalem stone with a separate walk-in shower and soaking tub for relaxing baths. Pamper yourself with Santa Maria Novella pomegranate bath salts and Santa Maria Novella body lotion from our signature spa collection. Just make sure you leave yourself extra time for primping at the seated vanity, as the window above it has distractingly beautiful ocean views.

Sea View Premium Terrace Suite
The Sea View Premium Terrace Suite (Citrus) has historic ties to the Kennedy family. In the 1960s, when the monastery had become the well-known Albergo Monastero di Santa Rosa, one of the “39 castles of Italy,” Jacqueline Kennedy used to lunch here on freshly caught local fish when this suite’s space housed the property’s original dining area. Now, its enormous terrace hangs over the center of the property, suspended over the Amalfi Coast with breathtaking coastal and sea views. Complete with alfresco dining table, lounges, lemon trees, and a retractable canopy when the Amafli sun blazes too strong, it is an ideal locale for a small private reception or dinner party.
The indoor living and dining room luxuriously juxtaposes contemporary Italian style with antique period pieces. The suite’s bedroom, with a king-size bed swathed in fine Italian linens, leads to the extraordinary bathroom designed in dark wood and Jerusalem stone with separate walk-in shower and double-wide tub for long soothing baths with Santa Maria Novella pomegranate bath salts. The bathroom is framed by a window overlooking the gardens, infinity pool, and Gulf of Salerno. We invite you to pamper yourself with our Santa Maria Novella body lotion selected from our signature spa collection.
