“The Beautiful and the Sublime...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The view is just the beginning! This trip was a rare relaxing interlude for us, and we came back blissful from our stay at the Monastero. it is small and exquisite. The food and service were relaxed and attentive at the same time. We will return next year to our extended"family" with ours. The balance between the setting and the full realization of it was incredible. Every night there was a lovely present on the pillow and every morning a special breakfast was waiting for our telephone call. The food and the service were sublime-- thy will prepare anything for you. The setting is breathtaking-better than the time-release website photographs. They will prepare anything for you.

Room Tip: Even entry level there is worth every penny. Every room and bathroom has a view of the sea even tho...

We spent three blissful days at this boutique hotel and spa on the Amalfi coast... It was the highlight of our time in Italy... So much so, we have decided to return again next year following our Tuscan wedding.
Our room was lovely, as was the brilliant daily cleaning and turn down service... The nightly gift on our pillow was a wonderful gesture.
We opted for a package with full use of the spa... So glad we did! Each morning we indulged in the steam room or sauna, followed by the spa and foot bath. We also enjoyed the signature candle massage in the Spa Suite... Heavenly!
The restaurant at the hotel was exceptional... Chef Christopher Bob and his sommelier, Daniele Di Palma, have created a fine dining and wine experience.... We met with both to create a degustation menu and wine experience that surpassed our expectations. Our thanks to both men and their charming waitstaff.
Our only suggestion for Management to consider is a complimentary mini bar. A hotel of such high standard should offer complimentary minibar for guests. This would be a welcome addition to the packages currently offered by the hotel.
We very much look forward to returning to Monastero next year after our wedding... We hope to recapture our special memories of a lovely stay!

We stayed in an apartment in Conca del Marini (airbnb) and for our last night we booked at table for dinner at this hotel and it was outstanding!!

The food was divine, the service excellent and the views were out of this world.

The veggie options were a little limited but delicious so no complaints from the me, and the fish that my partner had was very great. The sommelier recommended a number of wines, and the one we chose complimented the food well and the amuse bouche and palette cleansers just underlined the commitment to detail and customer service that made this experience so perfect.

Next time we will definitely be booking to stay overnight to experience the whole experience

My husband and I made this our first destination on our trip to Italy. I choose this hotel because after the very long flight from Los Angeles we wanted to be able to just relax and unwind for a couple days, enjoy the spa...
Well this was the PERFECT choice! Honestly, everything was perfect here. From our late evening arrival greeted by a friendly face. she knew we were tired so told us that she would show us around the property the next morning so we could go to our room and relax. She even had a delicious meal sent to our room as soon as we got there (without us asking for it). Amazing service! The breakfast was incredible. they greet you by name throughout the property. we choose to relax by the infinity pool after breakfast and then go to the spa in the afternoon. Wow. this spa is one of the very best if not the best that I have been to, and I have been to many. the facilities were incredible. they use Santa Maria Novella products, which are my fav. Both my husband and I had amazing massages. The rest of the day we spent sipping on prosecco by the pool. The most serene day of my life. The view is spectacular. Truly the perfect start of a vacation I will never forget.
I must comment on the stunning gardens. They are so beautifully maintained. there were 3 men working on the gardens all day, under the hot sun. replanting what looked to me like was already perfection. It is really refreshing to see the detail of up keep this property has. Since it is newly opened everything is immaculate. it has my hopes high that this property will remain immaculate with the attention to perfection that I found in all areas. They will take you by shuttle to Amalfi, which we did one evening for dinner. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to the Amalfi Coast.

From the moment you arrived at this resort you sense that you have arrived at a very special place. An old style bell is wrong to announce the staff that a new guest has arrived. You are greeted promptly and professionally by very friendly and professional staff member who welcomes you and offers you some refreshments and nice scented cold towels. He then proceeds to give you a small tour of the property and explain to you some of the very special history of this mystical property.

What impressed me the most is the attention of detail from the hallways to the inside of the rooms and the spa there isn't a detail that was not thought about. The gardens are like a botanical garden, perfectly manicured and give this feeling of peace just to walk around it.

Each room type has its own special charm. On top of that the restaurant experience is truly 5 star from the service and the gastronomic aspect. If you are not sure about the wines let Danilo the sommelier guide you through the wine list. Also, make sure the you book as Spa treament, not only the treatments are great but the spa itself is something to be seen.

Another great thing of this heavinly place is its location minutes away from Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Sorrento. I highly recommend to charter a private boat to down the Amalfi Coast and around Capri. This was a higlight of the trip seeing the Amalfi Coast from the water is an amazing experience.

This place is a must for anybody looking for this very special place were to hide or rest for a few days. We will definetely be back as many times as we have a chance.

Room Tip: All rooms are special.

For the last 15 years I have been traveling the world and this is one of the most amazing hotels I have stayed. As soon as you arrive, they welcome you with the ringing of a bell at the entrance, and all the staff comes out to greet you. The grounds are impeccable and the infinity pool s a real infinity towards heaven... The staff and service are hard to beat. There are just 20 rooms at the Monastero, so everybody knows you by name. The restaurant is amazing. The chef is from Germany and is one of the best assets of the hotel. Incredible food!! Location is perfect. Next to Amalfi (10 minutes), Ravello (15 minutes), etc. Best way to go and enjoy Positano and Capri is by boat. You can use the ferry or rent a private motor boat. I highly recommend you go by private boat. Amazing experience and incredible views. Monastero offers great spa
services. They offer many options and work till 7pm.

Room Tip: All rooms are very private and quiet.

I'm not sure where to begin. We booked a last minute trip to Italy in August, and decided to spend the first few days on the Amalfi coast. The reviews of the Monastero were compelling, and we never once regretted the decision.

The property is newly renovated, so the bathrooms, the linens, the pool...it's all new. But it's set in the backdrop of a 17th century monastery.

The highlights:

The pool: It's got a bubbling beach-style entry, and its infinity edge looks out onto a panoramic view of the sea. We never had any trouble with crowding or "saved seats" that are common elsewhere. Service was quick, and the beer was always cold. But I suggest you rent a boat for a day, and cruise the sea. Then you'll see the bigger story, that pool is sitting on top of a huge cliffside that juts back in underneath the property. Stunning.

The spa: It's kind of surreal and cave like. We had great massages in a two story spa suite. We took a dip in the hydrotherapy pool. We soaked our feet in salt baths. It's state of the art, but respectful of the origins of the property.

The restaurant: We ate here our first night, and it was amazing. The menu leverages tons of local ingredients. The waitstaff was insanely attentive and very friendly. And their chef, Cristoph, came out to talk with us often. We found ourselves canceling reservations in town to spend a few more minutes in the pool and have a few more glasses of wine in the restaurant.

The resort is not in Amalfi, but rather in Conca dei Marini. We thought that would be a drawback for us. But honestly, it felt good to leave the bustling throngs of tourists every night (in their free, quick, 5-minute shuttle) and back into the quiet luxury of the Santa Rosa.
