Perched on a cliff, this exquisite hotel offers enchanting views over the Bay of Naples and impeccable service.

Standing on Roman remains from the 2nd Century BC, this elegant hotel is imbued with a real sense of history, with many great emperors having spent time here in its previous incarnation. Having been renovated to exclusive luxury standards, original remains like the ancient grottos still exist, marrying the past to the present day. You can lounge next to the pool on the magnificent terrace or take the lift to the private seafront sunbathing deck where you can enjoy free use of sunbeds and parasols.

Relax in the shade with a cool refreshing drink on the veranda of the Giardino D’Inverno, or have a snack or meal on the terrace at La Pergola, which, in the evening is transformed into a piano bar. Guests can enjoy a variety of savoury and sweet treats and drinks throughout the day at the Club Lounge. Tuck into a tempting selection of pastries and cakes during afternoon tea and savoury snacks to keep you going until dinner – nibble on some cheese, olives, tomatoes and cold cut meats accompanied by a cold glass of wine or prosecco. If you still have room for more delicious treats then you can enjoy cream cakes, plum cakes and pies late afternoon and end your day of feasting with an aperitif. Villa Pompeiana, built at the beginning of the last century, has panoramic views of the Sorrento coast and serves gala dinners. There’s even a wine cellar created from a Roman grotto.

The rooms here are furnished to exceptionally high standards and all have sea views. Choose from Classic Sea View Rooms, the larger Superior Sea View Rooms, or Deluxe Sea View Rooms which are even more spacious. There are also four unique Sea View Suites which have a living room and spectacular views of the sea and the Gulf of Naples – a couple of them even have a plunge pool or Jacuzzi. The light and airy Lord Astor Suite has an elegant living room and a spacious terrace with a Jacuzzi and incredible views of the Gulf of Naples.
