Santa Caterina, the iconic hotel of Amalfi Coast in Italy

Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi boasts a long history of hospitality which dates back to 1904 when the Gambardella family inaugurated it. The long lasting tradition is alive with the heirs who still manage the property and are ready to welcome again their guests for the upcoming season as of March 19, 2013. Over the years Hotel Santa Caterina has housed a large number of celebrities who loved and appreciated this unique location. It ranks among the top hotels of the world and is located just moments away from the historical maritime republic of Amalfi and not far from Positano, forty minutes from Sorrento.

This is a historic landmark which perfectly fits into the breathtaking surroundings: in the beautiful setting of the Amalfi Coast the Hotel Santa Caterina with its landscaped terraces seems to plunge to the Mediterranean Sea. Two elevators are nestled in the rock and allow guests to get down to the seaside as an alternative to a path among citrus groves and lush gardens leading also to a sea-water swimming pool, sunbathing decks, gym, café/bar and open-air restaurant.

At Hotel Santa Caterina glamorous interiors feature Italian antique furniture from the 19th and early 20th centuries together with some contemporary elements and original details from the typical local tradition such as the precious Vietri light blue tiles, hand painted majolica, decorative plaster works, classic whitewashed low vaulted ceilings with pillars at the corners. Colours recall the blue of the sea and the yellow of the lemons which are so widespread in this coastal area which runs from Sorrento to Vietri. Scented lemons, together with herbs and other citrus fruits are also part of the beauty treatment products at the Santa Caterina's SPA.

The Hotel owners are constantly committed to renovation and maintenance of their property, that is why it becomes more and more attractive year after year preserving its enchanting atmosphere.

Flagships of this jewel on the Amalfi Coast are definitely Villa Rosso, an annexe in the park, with two suites and two deluxe rooms; the "Chalet Romeo and Juliet", a perfect suite for honeymooners with a small private garden and heated "infinity" swimming pool; "the Torrino" suite nestled in the hotel botanical garden and the spectacular "Follia Amalfitana" suite with its shell-shaped king size bed and Jacuzzi pool with spectacular view into the bay.

At Hotel Santa Caterina all rooms boast a balcony, terrace or garden with stunning views over the picturesque scenery of the Amalfi coast, some of them are equipped with whirlpool bath.
