Now Open: Anantara Convento di Amalfi Grand Hotel

Anantara Convento di Amalfi Grand Hotel has officially opens its doors, continuing the brand's expansion in Europe. Set in a 13th-century cliffside Capuchin convent in one of Italy’s most popular destinations, Anantara Convento di Amalfi Grand Hotel is the second Anantara property in Italy after the recent addition of Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome Hotel, and the brand’s eighth in Europe.

Just a 15-minute walk from the center of Amalfi, the restored 800-year-old building retains its historic features, including ornate cloisters and an on-site Baroque church complete with a marble altar and Majolica floor. The property’s 52 guestrooms and suites, many of which were first built as monks’ quarters, have original tiles, vaulted ceilings and lime-washed walls blended with sculptural furniture, local art, high-tech comforts and Mediterranean views. The Suite Del Priore, named for its setting in the convent’s priory, has frescoes above the four-poster bed and views of the cloisters, while the Suite Dell’Eremita, the hermit’s suite, offers its own tranquil lemon grove.

At Dei Cappucinni, Executive Chef Claudio Lanuto introduced a convent kitchen concept in which fresh seasonal ingredients grown in the convent garden will star in à la carte, monk-inspired dishes and sensory tasting menus. La Locanda della Canonica Pizzeria by Gino Sorbillo presents eight signature pizzas designed by a global pizza ambassador to create a journey through Campania. An internationally renowned pizza master, Sorbillo invites diners to savor the flavors of the region, from anchovies from Cetara and locally produced Provolone del Monaco to mozzarella and ricotta from Agerola.

Anantara Spa has a unique setting in a travertine-clad space overlooking the sea. In three treatment rooms, therapists will offer healing journeys, including the property’s signature Convento Di Amalfi massage with citrus oils to refresh and rejuvenate. Other facilities include the alfresco fitness center and the cliffside swimming pool.

Guests can also enjoy unique experiences guided by local gurus. In Amalfi, the offerings span culture, nature, gastronomy and beyond. The "Path of the Gods," known to locals as the Sentiero Degli Dei, is a trek along the Lattari Mountains for views of the Sorrentine Peninsula and the island of Capri in the distance. A journey by private Mercedes to Pompeii and Herculaneum reveals preserved historic details of ancient Roman life. Culinary adventures include cooking classes in a lemon grove or vineyard with tours and tastings to match. Anantara’s private dining experience, “Dining by Design,” invites couples to enjoy a personalized menu, served by private butler in a setting of their choice.

Tours by vintage car or tuk-tuk take in the shoreline of the Amalfi Coast with guided stops in Positano and Ravello. A private helicopter flight takes in the region in all its glory with bird’s-eye views of the architecture of Positano and of Sorrento. A romantic private cruise along the coast includes an aperitivo with prosecco and views of the sun setting over Capri.
