Positioned on the highest point of Ravello this elegant and sophisticated hotel rests on a clifftop over 1,000 feet above sea level, with some of the most spectacular views over the Mediterranean and Amalfi Coast. Originally built as an 11th century palazzo by the D'Afflitto family from Rome, it has played host to many famous names. Within the grounds some unusual white cave dwellings, dating back to the 10th and 11th centuries, were recently discovered.
Each one of the 50 beautifully appointed guest rooms exude its own unique style and is comprised of sumptuous furnishings and modern comforts. The two elegant restaurants both prepare traditional Neapolitan cuisine and regional Italian dishes, incorporating fresh ingredients from the herb garden and vegetable plot. The al fresco Restaurant Belvedere, surrounded by the hotel's gardens, is a splendid setting for summer dining. A truly great feature of the Belmond Hotel Caruso is the outdoor heated infinity pool, complete with spectacular panoramic views that sweep across all corners of the Amalfi Coast.
