My boyfriend and I stayed at Monastero Santa Rosa after a few days in Rome, and what a spectacular treat it was. Upon entering the premise, we were greeted by the smiling and impeccably dressed Flavio, Monastero's general manager. He walked us out to the balcony, and the view completely took my breath away! The property is STUNNING, and after what we heard was a rigorous 12-year-long renovation, the owners should feel extremely proud. It can only be described as heaven on earth.
Perched high on the cliff's edge, the hotel is only 20 rooms; it is QUIET and peaceful, unlike the hotels in Positano or the town of Amalfi. If you stay more than one night you'll quickly get to know the staff and the other guests - everyone is just happy to be there. I could stare out past the infinity pool to the horizon all day long - and one day I did! :)
The first night we were there, Trey proposed! So henceforth, he shall be referred to as 'My Fiance.'
'My Fiance' booked us for dinner on the beautiful restaurant patio and everything we had was delicious. I'm a vegetarian, and the vegetable lasagna is not to be missed.
The next day we had a couples massage on the spa terrace, which was so lovely. Maria, my massage therapist was an angel. Definitely take advantage of the spa!
From the outdoor gym, to the infinity pool; from Andrea the bartender's cocktail crafting expertise, and Daniele's superior somme-ness; from the outdoor fireplaces, swinging chairs and bocce court; this place is perfection. We will definitely be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Striking the perfect balance of seclusion without solitude, Monastero Santa Rosa allows guests to determine the tone of their stay, whether they're looking to disappear for an intimate getaway or gather with the group and make new acquaintances. It's hard to imagine that the generous grounds, filled with four levels of gardens, lush landscaping, plentiful lounge chairs, and canopied daybeds, serve just 20 rooms and suites. Where most boutique properties might only offer in-room massages, Monastero Santa Rosa hosts a fully equipped spa to rival any major city spa, offering not just treatment rooms, but large-scale amenities that include a sauna, steam, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool, and tepidarium. Guests are welcome to feel a part of the scene at the library and bar. Engage in a game of chess or cards or read while sipping a martini in the modern cocktail area. Relax down by the pool or discover the resort's secret gardens, quiet sun decks, and indoor relaxation areas. Get the best of both worlds by making your stay as energizing or relaxed as you wish, by selecting different spaces to suit your mood at any time. ... more less
