Luna Convento

4

An inimitable and iconic hotel housed in a historic convent, founded by St Francis of Assisi.

This former medieval convent is one of Amalfi’s most famous hotels. Experience a true sense of history during your stay here with a visit to the chapel or marvel at the magnificent central courtyard with its climbing plants, enclosed by arched cloisters and overlooked by a bell tower. The atmosphere is intimate and brimming with character and it’s no surprise that guests return year after year.

Follow a series of steps down to the pool and soak up the sun while drinking in the magnificent sea views or wander further down to take a refreshing dip in the sea. A short walk will take you to the centre of Amalfi where boutiques and bars await.

The hotel's main restaurant La Veranda is beautifully decorated with frescoes, has spectacular views of the bay and serves simple and genuine Italian cuisine inspired by the traditional flavours of the Amalfi Coast. Just opposite the hotel is a Saracen tower, which houses Torre Saracena Restaurant (open 01 April to 20 October) and offers incredible sea views – perfect for a romantic meal. You can enjoy drinks in the beautiful cloister area or retreat to the painting hall inside.

The classic rooms are individually styled and vary in size. The Mediterranean-style Standard Rooms are cosy and comfortable.
