When you dream of Italy magnificient images inspire one to take flight and experience a country steeped in history and elegance. Monastero Santa Rosa infuses all those wishes one envisions.Creating a truley luxurious romantic get away for the discerning traveler.
Striking the perfect balance of seclusion without solitude, Monastero Santa Rosa allows guests to determine the tone of their stay, whether they’re looking to disappear for an intimate getaway or gather with the group and make new acquaintances. It’s hard to imagine that the generous grounds, filled with four levels of gardens, lush landscaping, plentiful lounge chairs, and canopied daybeds, serve just 20 rooms and suites. Where most boutique properties might only offer in-room massages, Monastero Santa Rosa hosts a fully equipped spa to rival any major city spa, offering not just treatment rooms, but large-scale amenities that include a sauna, steam, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool, and tepidarium.
Engage in a game of chess or cards or read while sipping a martini in the modern cocktail area. Relax down by the pool or discover the resort’s secret gardens, quiet sun decks, and indoor relaxation areas.
Imagine nuns cloaked in traditional white wool and black cap attire busy baking delectable cream-filled pastries within the kitchen of a sky-swimming 17th-century monastery perched on the most dramatic promontory of Conca dei Marini. Such is how it all began… The sisters baked exquisite handmade desserts. Their sfogliatelle, a shell-shaped, filled pastry, became known as ‘Santa Rosa.’ The spiritual enchantment of the transformed monastery remains ever present in the luxuriously converted 20 rooms and suites, each named for an herb that the nuns would have used in making their medicines from the Monastero Santa Rosa garden. Vaulted ceilings and the primary structure of the nuns’ rooms and refectory have been preserved and linked together with ensuites to create sumptuous bedrooms, each with a spellbinding sea view stretching from the Conca dei Marini’s fishing harbor below to Amalfi beyond.
The suites represent an authentic Italian residential experience. Each suite has been individually designed with furniture hand picked by the owner, Bianca, throughout her travels in Italy. One-of-a-kind antiques accent the suites while historical black and white photographs taken before the renovation don the walls evoking the spiritual past. The suites vary in size with each space completely unique—some with elegant living and dining rooms as well as terraces swathed in bougainvillea lingering over the Gulf of Salerno and the enchanting Conca dei Marini fishing village.
THE SPA Monastero Santa Rosa is a place of abundant scent of rosemary and lemon. The wide tiered gardens that cascade to an infinity edged pool, seemingly embrace the panoramic views from the edge of a towering cliff facade dropping dramatically to the calm azure of the Amalfi Coast. Centuries of history behind ancient walls tell a tale of community and the offering of sanctuary, healing and comfort.
Each room within the Spa preserves the original 17th Century vaulted ceilings and many of its rustic walls, maintaining the monastic heritage of this beautiful property. The Italian heritage of bathing is presented in the form of a Thermal Suite, consisting of a collection of vaulted spaces inter-connecting the various warm rooms via arched openings & changes of levels… a discovery around each corner. The Suite includes a stunning double-height vaulted Tepidarium with pomegranate infused foot spas & heated mosaic loungers; domed Aromatic Steam Room; crushed Ice fountain to refresh between thermal bathing; Rock Sauna; Hydro Pool and Emotion Showers.
The most exceptional treatment room – the Spa Suite, is a stunning 80m2 double height vaulted space with Rasul; steam room; double wet & dry treatment couches; manicure / pedicure; relaxation lounge; private dressing & grooming space and a garden terrace… a ‘private spa within a spa’. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a treatment outdoors under the shade of a pergola within the privacy of the Treatment Garden, or be cocooned within oneof our historic single treatment rooms.

FORMAL DINING OR ALFRESCO DINING
As Monastero Santa Rosa hovers between sea and sky, fittingly so too does its Ristorante’s terrace. Suspended over the Gulf of Salerno, the hotel’s restaurant terrace allows guests to dine alfresco while admiring one of the most exclusive views on the entire Amalfi Coast. Or indulge in Mediterranean haute cuisine indoors under vaulted ceilings in the intimate formal dining room. During the day, dine outdoors aside the infinity pool or among the terraced cascading gardens. Whatever venue you choose, our chef, our maitre d’, our sommelier and our waiters all take great pride in sharing their passion for service and gourmet cuisine.
For lunch enjoy light Mediterranean fare served alfresco on the pergola-shaded dining terrace, aside the infinity pool under the blazing Amalfi Coast sun or in our cascading garden terraces overlooking the Gulf of Salerno. Breakfast is served in the comfort of your room on silver trays or outside under the pergola shaded dining terrace.
