Ravello & Positano

On Wednesday April 16th, we had the opportunity to visit 2 leading luxury hotels in Ravello and Positano:

Hotel Caruso in Ravello

The hotel is located on the mountains overlooking the town of Ravello and the Amalfi Coast. The hotel is unique in that all the hotel rooms are facing the ocean with either a decent size private garden or french balcony.

The hotel also have an infinity pool that gives the guest an illusion that the pool and the ocean are joint together.

The view from the hotel balcony were spectacular, unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to visit the hotel rooms, but as our guide Iolanda told us, all rooms in Hotel Caruso are identical, except for the view of the Amalfi Coast.

Hotel San Pietro in Positano

It was a great experience getting tours of the establishments, both hotels have their own attractive factors, but in comparison, I prefer Hotel San Pietro for its location, and the its distance to the beach, and other amenities it provide for the guests. I like the decoration of the lobby, guests are able to enjoy both the view of the garden as well as the ocean through the full length windows while they check-in or just relaxing on the couches.

The Hotel San Pietro offers many amenities such as complementary meals, free transportation into the town of Positano, a 2 hour complementary yacht ride in the morning during the summer season (from June till September), yoga, gym, and spa at extra cost. The hotel also have a 1 Star Michelin restaurant located on its premises.

Each room are decorated differently, but all rooms have an ocean view with a decent size balcony depending on the room type.
