As the first new hotel of its kind to open in Amalfi in nearly 20 years, Borgo Santandrea is a 45-room cliffside hotel suspended 90-meters above sea level. Overlooking the small fishermen’s village of Conca Dei Marini, the luxury hotel boasts its own private beach, jetty, forthcoming exclusive beach club, and three restaurants. Following three years of meticulous construction along the cliffs, the new hotel had its soft opening this summer.
Constructed as the passion project of two Italian brothers from Ischia, the Orlacchio brothers focused on building a freshly modern yet unmistakably Italian hotel. “It has been a beautiful challenge, over the past three years, to bring the property to life and I feel proud to have brought so many talented artisans and iconic Italian brands together to create a one-of-a-kind hotel that is truly ‘Made in Italy’. We feel Borgo Santandrea is much more of a home than a hotel and we look forward to welcoming our guests this summer,” said Maurizio Orlacchio, owner.
Borgo Santandrea immerses travelers in classic Italian charm with incredible design details, all of which were produced locally, like 31 different types of geometric handmade and hand-painted tiles, that are a nod to Gio Ponti and local pattern traditions.
The hotel features 29 guestrooms and 16 suites, each one offering uninterrupted views of the sea and the ancient fisherman’s hamlet of Conca Dei Marini. Guests can choose from seven room types which all feature Once Milano linens, artisanal handmade ceramic tiles, bespoke furniture, a full-size Italian marble bathroom, and wrap their guests in warm Italian hospitality and charm. Their most opulent offering is the Deluxe Suites with Private Pool ranging between 915-1,130 sq. ft. and offers a private garden and stunning private infinity pool.
Overseen by Michelin-starred chef Crescenzo Scotti, Borgo Santandrea’s three restaurants and two bars offer classic Mediterranean fare with varying modern twists. Scotti crafted menus that highlight the bold local ingredients to allow guests to discover authentic flavors influenced by the freshest of local ingredients. From the panoramic patio of Alici and seaside glamour of The Beach Club to the culturally inspired ambiance of La Libreria, diners can savor breathtaking vistas of the Amalfi Coast with staples like the Frisella al gusto d’estate, (Pugliese Rusk Bread with summer produce), Burrata with tomatoes and a Rosemary Negroni.
Book a stay in this enchanting small fishing village with its green and turquoise waters and centuries-old maritime tradition for a magical destination getaway to enjoy a luxurious escape from the hustle of daily life.
