I am usually more into modern design hotels but the Caruso seduced me with its Italian charme and old style grandeur. Ravello itself seemed like a step back into a different time, very quiet still at this time of the year, with the locals sipping coffee on the main square and lemon trees full of fat yellow lemons everywhere. The hotel had just opened for the season, the service was outstanding and my room wonderfully spacious with a sea facing patio / balcony. The bathroom was huge, with a tub, a walk-in shower and a separate toilet room. Bath products are from Bulgari and Penhaligon and are provided in extremely generous amounts. One of the best things was breakfast, not only included in the price but with no extra cost if taken in the room - i cant remember any 5 start hotel that hasnt charged extra for this!!! Another highlight is the roof terrace and infinity pool, with an incredible 360 degree view of the mountains and the Amalfi coast. You have to come here if you are in the area!
