Hotel Caruso is a part of Belmond, and can be found overlooking the paradise that is the Amalfi Coast. Belmond certainly have an outstanding reputation for their stunning hotel offerings, and we’re pleased to say that we were certainly not disappointed with our visit to Hotel Caruso, which is now up there with some of our favourite Italian destinations.

This hotel is set at the top of a cliff, offering picturesque postcard views of the ocean and some of the most beautiful sunsets you can imagine. The building itself is a former palace dating back to the 11the century, so expect a wealth of beauty from the architecture alone. The colour palette inside this hotel is neutral, classic and clean, accentuated by wonderful antiques and works of art. This is authentic Italian beauty at its finest.

The hotel itself offers a total of 50 rooms and suites, which allows it to be a somewhat intimate experience. This means that you can expect exceptional service, which we are delighted to confirm, continued throughout our stay. When we arrived, we were greeted as if old friends and shown on our way to our suite.

“We had the most wonderful of stays at this hotel, which truly encapsulates fine Italian hospitality in all its glory.”

Our suite continued the theme of the rest of the hotel, classic, elegant, Italian design throughout. The bedroom was clean and crisp and featured some stunning art and antique pieces. The bathroom boasted luxurious marble focal points and a wonderful bath that is extremely difficult to drag yourself away from. As well as the bathroom and bedroom, our suite also offered a sizeable terrace that was home to a large sofa, arm chairs, a coffee table and two sun loungers all of which were complete with some of the most comfortable cushions we have experienced to date. It provided the perfect setting to catch some afternoon sunshine, with unrestricted views of the stunning Amalfi Coast.

In terms of facilities, Hotel Caruso is certainly not lacking. There is a wonderfully exclusive wellness centre spa that is quite something to experience. Their treatments are second to none, with the use of therapeutic botanicals in abundance, this is a truly special place to indulge oneself and unwind. There’s even the opportunity to have your treatments outside, which is such a joy on a warm day.

If a spa is not your thing, you absolutely must pay a visit to the hotel’s iconic infinity pool. This pool is more than just an infinity pool – it is an experience in its own right. The views are simply incredible and you can while away hours simply looking over the cliff edge.

In terms of dining experiences, you will find the hotel’s restaurant, the Belvedere Restaurant. Chef Mimmo di Raffaele serves up some of the most delicious Mediterranean dishes at this restaurant, which is definitely not to be missed. Hotel Caruso’s Arcade Bar also provides the perfect spot for a pre-dinner cocktail, which can be enjoyed over the sound of their talented pianist.

If you’re looking for a truly exceptional experience, we recommend that you enquire into Hotel Caruso’s Belmond Villa Margherita. The accommodation comprises of two, stunning, suites located inside a private villa for a really intimate experience. With the additional benefit of your own private butler, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will be well and truly looked after.

We simply cannot fault our stay at Hotel Caruso. We had the most wonderful of stays at this hotel, which truly encapsulates fine Italian hospitality in all its glory. Our experience was faultless, and this hotel has certainly cemented Belmond’s fine reputation in our minds. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for a truly luxurious Italian break.
