Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel And Spa
Springtime of a Convent
When Jacqueline Kennedy was the First Lady of the United States, she loved Amalfi and held parties here many times, especially on cruisers. Jacqueline lived in the hotel for one night. The last nun of the monastery died in the early 19th century. It had never gone through maintenance until 1999 when it was discovered by an American lady. She bought the place the next year. After the lady had worked with local architects for 12 years, the hotel opened in 2012. The hotel provides private and exclusive services for celebrities and successful people who seek a lowkey profile. Because of its prime location and romantic atmosphere, it also attracts a lot of young people in Europe to take a holiday or make a proposal, surprisingly bringing new customers.
MONASTERO SANTA ROSA HOTEL AND SPA is located on a hill, 5 minutes‘ drive from the town of Amalfi. The hotel was built in 1681 by an abandoned monastery. Then the monastery was converted into a hotel composed of 20 rooms and 8 apartments. The hotel preserves the original main structure and the church which is now in normal use. With the use of modern building techniques, the luxury hotel‘s necessary ancillary facilities, infinity pool, openair bar, openair gym and highend spa were built on the cliffs of the Mediterranean and neatly arranged down the slope of the hill as well as the indoor and outdoor restaurants on the terrace. The hotel also has a garden in the southern Italian style. The beautiful sea view has become part of the hotel.
