A tranquil cliff-top hideaway
High above the old fishing village of Praiano on Italy’s Amalfi Coast sits Casa Angelina, a five-star hotel with a designer touch and an atmosphere of calm. Set between the well-heeled towns of Positano and Amalfi, and the beautiful hiking country of the Lattari mountains, Casa Angelina is a great base for exploring this classic coastline. Hotel guests can take an elevator down to La Gavitella beach – a suntrap decked out with sun loungers and parasols. The Gavitella Beach Club and Bar has an area exclusively reserved for Casa Angelina guests, so sit back and relax while enjoying one of the speciality sorbets made with lemons picked from the surrounding groves.
There is a choice of restaurants available, from fine dining to relaxed poolside bites. Un Piano Nel Cielo is Casa Angelina’s gourmet restaurant with classic Italian tastes and local ingredients given a modern twist. There is a tasting menu for guests who want to try it all, and sommeliers to create customised wine pairings to suit your meal and individual tastes.
Marrakech Bar is the spot for cocktails overlooking the sea. Take a seat at the bar’s cliff-edge terrace and watch the sun go down. For something more casual, try the Pool Sundeck restaurant and tuck into some classic Italian salads or gelato. Cream-coloured parasols and sun loungers look chic on the wooden deck, and the lemon trees that surround it provide gorgeous smells and dappled shade.
Breakfast is a buffet with everything from fresh breads, Italian cheeses and cured meat, to cakes and healthy options. Alongside the fruit juices and Champagne on offer there is, of course, some fine Italian coffee served by the hotel’s coffee master, Martino.
If your days spent looking out on the azure sea inspire a sense of adventure, you can hire the hotel’s private boat and a skipper for the day and head out to explore the coves and bays hidden along the coast. For the ultimate in stress-free holidays, Casa Angelina also has its own team of concierges who can be your personal assistants during your stay. From day trips to nights out, sporting activities or simply advice on the area, they can organise it all.
For guests who want to stay active, Casa Angelina has a gymnasium, complete with personal trainers and fitness classes. Enjoy a sunset yoga class, morning Pilates or head to one of the hotel’s two swimming pools. Otherwise indulge in a massage or a facial at the hotel’s spa. There are a range of treatments on offer, including make-up sessions, body scrubs and hair care.
The bedrooms and suites come in all shapes and sizes, depending on your needs, and all include a flat-screen television, an iPad and Wi-Fi. L’Occitane and Jo Malone toiletries can be found in the bathrooms, and all rooms are decorated in Casa’s Angelina’s signature white, modern style. There are single rooms for one, and large renovated fisherman’s cottages on the beach, as well as many room sizes in between to suit your travelling party.
