If I would need to choose one the most perfect example of highest-end hospitality out of many luxury hotels I was lucky to sample, Hotel Caruso Belvedere, an Orient-Express, would come to my mind before others. This lavish palazzo, perched on the hill high above ever-blue Mediterranean Sea, keeps its secret charms for connoisseurs and manages to attract the most discriminating globetrotters. It only has 48 rooms and suites, most of which have terraces, private gardens and spectacular sea view, neither of them repeats the other in layout or decor, so each guest can have his unique favorite.
Famous Caruso infinity pool is between the most dramatically beautiful pools of the world. It appears to cascade over the cliff, directly to the sea below, and it opens the view which could not be described in words, neither it can be caught in its full drama by the most talented photographer. It needs to be seen and experienced for many happy returns.
Ravello is regarded as a one of the most sophisticated and secluded spots on the scenic Sorrento Peninsula, its elegant stucco villas and narrow alleys perched on the high hill overlooking timeless beauty of the Mediterranean Sea. Hotel Caruso takes advantage of the most dramatic location on the highest point of Ravello. Many of splendidly restored rooms and suites offer a breathtaking view, so do its three restaurants, heated infinity pool, lavish gardens, and even gymnasium. Caruso has spa, and also tennis arrangements can be done by concierge on nearby courts.
Hotel Caruso Belvedere, part of the sparkling Italian Orient-Express collection, is located approximately 65 km from Naples International Airport Capodichino, on the highest point of the picturesque hill-town Ravello, 1150 ft (350 m) above the sea level. Complimentary shuttle service will bring you within minutes to Amalfi and Positano for day of shopping and dining, or ferry boat ride to Capri and Ischia (ferries to the islands depart from Positano, Amalfi, and Sorrento). Complimentary hotel boat is available to take guests in romantic trip through the charming Amalfi Coast.
Hotel offers 48 spacious, meticulously restored and beautifully appointed rooms, 24 of which are suites and junior suites. Each room has unique layout and design reflecting vivid Mediterranean colors and artistic traditions of Amalfi Coast. More than 90% of rooms enjoy stunning sea view. Those few which don't, are compensated with more generous size of the room and private gardens overlooking charming village cottages climbing the rugged limestone cliffs. Guestrooms offer all modern amenities including air-conditioning, safe, WiFi internet, mini-bar, satellite TV, DVD, bathrobe, hairdryer, weight-scale and direct phone.
Guests of Hotel Caruso can enjoy heated infinity swimming pool surrounded by sun deck and offering the most spectacular view of the sea and Amalfi coastline. Also in guests' disposal are gymnasium, spa, Boutique & Signature Shop, and extraordinary dining facilities. Indoor restaurant Caruso is located on the first floor. Its beautiful terrace opens undisturbed breathtaking views of the sea. The Belvedere is an open air Restaurant located closer to the pool, in Belvedere area. There is also Poolside Snack & Bar for informal luncheons, and Cocktail and Piano Bar in the main building to enjoy evening drink while admiring precious 18th century frescoes.
