Caruso, A Belmond Hotel, Amalfi Coast

‘Clifftop Former Palace, Large Infinity Pool, Surrounded by Gardens’

Housed within a former 11th century palace, set on clifftops above the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Hotel Caruso has panoramic views. The property retains much of its original features and charm, with a collection of rooms and suites each with their own unique design. The two restaurants specialise in local produce to create Mediterranean dishes. There is a large outdoor infinity pool with views across the coast, a spa and fitness centre and a complimentary boat tour provided by the hotel.
