Reopened in June 2005 after a four-year renovation, the Caruso Ravello has entered the lofty company of one of Italy’s finest hotels. No expense was spared in creating this glorious aerie 350 meters high above the Amalfi coastline.
Internationally renowned Neapolitan designer Federico Forquet chose themes and colors true to the culture of Ravello. Textiles were specially created. Local artisans crafted the bronze lamps, and tile work was fashioned using traditional methods. The Roman-style mosaics were inspired by the ruins of nearby Pompeii. The rose, light blue, and yellow hues suggest a watercolor.
A nice touch are reproductions of furniture used in the original, ancient palazzo.
Most of the spacious guest rooms have balconies or terraces with sea views. Bathrooms are thoroughly modernized and well appointed.
Although considered a “junior suite,” the Jackie O. Suite features a private pool. Perfect for a honeymoon.
Dining is al fresco when the weather is fine. Views are of the Mediterranean.
