Hotel Santa Caterina
A Grande Dame
of the Amalfi Coast
The Santa Caterina calls itself a "an elegant seaside residence surrounded by the perennial blue of the Mediterranean sea and sky" and we could not have said it better. You can really feel that these people are seasoned professionals and that they know what exactly wat top-notch service is and that they are loving the fact that they provide a kind of old-school luxury.
The Santa Caterina is a winning mix of a classic hotel combined with Amalfi Coast glamour. Yet somehow they make it feel very down-to-earth. And the real gem is the fantastic beach club complete with swimming pool, restaurant and access to the sea.
Access to the beach is via cliffside lift to a series of concrete terraces and bathing platforms built over the rocks where sunbeds are laid out under large white umbrellas. Here you will also find a heated saltwater pool and an excellent restaurant appropriately called Al Mare.
