There can be no better place to swim than the Caruso’s sensational infinity pool. Seemingly set on the edge of a precipice, its blue waters merge with the sea and sky to magical effect. Inside, the sublimely restored 11th-century palazzo (mansion) is no less impressive, with 15th-century vaulted ceilings, high-class ceramics and Moorish arches doubling as window frames.
Rooms are suitably mod-conned: the TV/DVD system slides out of a wooden cabinet at the foot of the bed.
Perched on a sea-view cliff on the Amalfi Coast, Belmond Hotel Caruso is set in a renovated building of the 11th century. The property includes an infinity pool, terraced gardens, and historic interiors with frescoed ceilings. The rooms and suites offer views of the garden or the sea. The rooms are located in the main building or in the annex in the garden. All accommodation is complete with an LCD TV with CD and DVD player, air conditioning, and free internet. Some rooms and suites offer a private balcony. A generous American breakfast is served daily at the Belmond Hotel Caruso. The Belvedere Restaurant serves traditional Italian specialities and the Pool Restaurant is the ideal spot for a light lunch and a taste of Italian pizza. During the summer, the property offers complimentary boat excursions along the coast, as well as a free shuttle to Amalfi and Positano.
