Wishing for a carefree getaway to the Amalfi Coast? Well, here’s your chance to hop on one with the Borgo Santandrea, the newest luxury hotel to open at the destination in 15 long years. No, we’re kidding you not!
After three years of construction, the luxury hotel is now set to host tourists in the lap of luxury. The cliffside getaway is located 90 meters above sea level and features its own private beach, jetty, oceanfront pool, forthcoming exclusive beach club, and three restaurants.
It further houses 29 guestrooms and 16 suites – each complete with panoramic views of the sea and the ancient fisherman’s hamlet of Conca Dei Marini. Décor wise, the accommodation consists of geometric hand-painted tiles, antique furniture, and hand-crafted pieces by local Amalfitano artisans.
Each of the rooms and suites also come with floor-to-ceiling windows and bathrooms stocked with Acqua di Parma toiletries. The hotel further houses a cliffside lift that helps guests reach the hotel’s private beach.
And that’s not all! In giving guests a taste of the local fanfare, Borgo Santandrea runs three restaurants, La Libreria, Alici, and The Beach Club, under the direction of Michelin-starred Executive Chef Crescenzo Scotti. Visitors can also sip on refreshing drinks at two in-house bars.
The entire construction is conceptualized by Italian architect Bonaventura Gambardella in collaboration with a team of designers, including the interior designer Nikita Bettoni and kitchen designer Andrea Viacava. The result is an eclectic mix of Italian design, classic Mediterranean style, and original mid-century vibes.
Commenting on the opening, Maurizio Orlacchio, General Manager and co-owner of the hotel, said: “We are so excited to open the doors to Borgo Santandrea. It has been a beautiful challenge over the past three years to restore the property, and I feel proud to have brought so many talented artisans and iconic Italian brands together to create a one-of-a-kind hotel that is truly ‘Made in Italy.’ We feel Borgo Santandrea is much more a home than a hotel, and we look forward to welcoming our first guests this summer.”
