Italy is one of those countries that every person wishes to visit once in a lifetime. The Roman Empire, Italy’s capital, offers regal residences and historical monuments. Whereas places like Positano and Sicily come with their spectacular scenery and sun-kissed beaches. Venice and Florence depict striking Renaissance architecture that one would do justice to only by sighing over.
Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Italy also takes your breath away with the gorgeous beauty of the Sorrento Peninsula. Below, we cover every imaginably splendid aspect of the country and list some of the most lavish hotels in the country for your time in Southern Europe. These hotels rank high in various categories like location, architecture, ambiance, heritage, and style.
- Belmond Hotel Caruso – Amalfi
The Belmond Hotel Caruso is the finest hotel in terms of luxury in Italy. It is somewhere in the middle of the sea and sky and occupies a former medieval palace. Precisely, it is at the highest, quietest point of Ravello. The Belmond Hotel Caruso has a fantastic view of Italy’s Amalfi Coast rocks and cliffs and the Mediterranean Sea.
The luxury hotel comprises frescoed salons, arched stone vaults, and only 50 carefully designed and classically equipped individual rooms and suites spread across every shape and corner of the ancient palace’s architecture. The place is rightfully a dreamer’s escape from reality with its remarkable historic beauty.
More than anything, the hotel’s attractions are its rose arbor leading to one of the world’s most spectacular infinity pools and sunlit or candlelit dining in the Belvedere Restaurant. Many presidents, writers, and film stars consider the palace hotel to be a romantic getaway.
- Le Sirenuse – Positano
When it comes to historically mesmerizing and equally welcoming, the Le Sirenuse speaks volumes in its structure. In 1951, four Neapolitan brothers decided to turn their summer house into a hotel. The property is now an expanse of a 58-room resort. It is renowned as one of Italy’s leading and most enduring seaside luxury hotels.
Le Sirenuse is at the center of the town on Amalfi Drive. The rooms and terraces are 70m above the beautiful sea, overlooking the spectacular view of the bay. On the outside, Le Sirenuse stands distinguishingly with its maroon-painted footage. And on the inside is an eclectic collection of antique furniture and curated art in the rabbit warren of rooms.
The resort’s walls go in a basic white to contrast with the terracotta tiles on the floor, while large French windows opening onto massive terraces leave room for the morning sunlight. As for outdoor activities, the resort offers a compact pool terrace surrounded by loungers with the shade of lemon trees. That’s not all. The Michelin-starred La Sponda restaurant is entirely candlelit and grants a splendid view of the shimmering lights of the resort.
- Palazzo Gattini – Matera
Matera’s spectacular, rocky city is located in southern Italy, among the Basilicata region. And the Palazzo Gattini is situated on the highest point of Matera. The beautiful resort overlooks the Sassi towns and vividly captures their beauty. The palace-like hotel provides a five-star experience while still rooting you toward the historical values with its remarkable architecture.
The hotel draws a lot of crowds for serving different cuisines from across the globe. There is a roof garden and a lavish swimming pool, and the rooms are an ultimate attention grabber designed as a cave. The hotel also offers various outdoor packages for guests to indulge in activities to explore the historical town of Matera.
- Aman Venice
Radiating luxury and passion with every corner of its grand establishment, Venice has a lot of options to choose from in its delightful hotels. But Aman Venice has no comparison. Located within a phenomenal 16th-century Palazzo Papadopolion on the Grand Canal, Aman Venice is the most luxurious hotel in Italy’s most famous city.
The hotel is the proud possessor of museum-quality treasures, including Tiepolo frescoes, gilded ceilings, and centuries-old leather wall coverings. In its unique architecture and ambiance, Aman Venice resembles more of a home and less of a hotel. It also grants the privilege of space in the center of the Floating City.
The structure has high ceilings and spacious light-filled salons, joined by two mature outdoor private gardens and a small rooftop. The hotel has 24 rooms and suites that overlook the hotel’s private garden or the Grand Canal. And most of these features protected frescos and reliefs.
- Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort – Rome
The Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, is on the heights of Monte Mario and thus offers a mindblowing scenic panorama of the entire Rome. Starting with the Michelin-star dining room and leading to a splendid spa and pool, the Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, is spread across 15 acres of land.
The resort features its own art collection, far from the disquiet and liveliness of the city. The hotel rooms are specially equipped with sleeping and living areas designed to keep the most gracious styles and interiors in mind. Each room has a high-end bathroom and an enormous balcony for an al fresco breakfast or evening aperitifs.
If you are looking for a highly deluxe experience for your holiday, be sure to pick a room on the Imperial floor. These include access to their club lounge. And if you wish to upscale the level of grandiosity, choose the Planetarium suite, which contains masterpieces throughout and a vast private roof terrace and jacuzzi.
