Monastero Santa Rosa, Amalfi Coast
Located approximately 175 miles southeast of Rome, the Amalfi Coast stretches for 15 miles along the Sorrentine Peninusla. Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa is located approximately 10 minutes from the town of Amalfi, 25 minutes from Positano, 15 minutes from Ravello, and 80 minutes from the Naples International Airport, the region’s most common point of entry.
Sea View Superior Rooms
The Sea View Superior Rooms take in the warmth of the Amalfi sun through picture-framed windows. Beneath vaulted arched ceilings these bedrooms showcase contemporary Italian style juxtaposed with antique period pieces bringing the past into the present. Decorated with fine Italian white linens and neutral tones to calm the spirit, these rooms, named after herbs from Monastero Santa Rosa’s own garden, feel like a private boudoir. These rooms feature wrought iron king-size beds, double wardrobes, and large bathrooms designed in dark wood and Jerusalem stone with a walk-in shower.
Sea View Deluxe Terrace Rooms
The Sea View Deluxe Terrace Rooms are conveniently located at the entrance of the hotel, on the highest level, each with a private terrace that overlooks the infinity pool and cascading gardens of Monastero Santa Rosa. Although our smallest room category, and only room category with a queen-size bed, each has a terrace with doors that open to bring the outdoors in, expanding the space with extra room for private outdoor relaxation with spectacular views.
The rooms feature similar décor found in the other room categories, including a mixture of antique furnishings mixed with modern amenities. A fabric-covered headboard accents the queen-size beds showcasing fine Italian white cotton bedding. Large bathrooms, complete with a window overlooking the terrace, feature dark woods and light Jerusalem stone making these rooms cozy and comfortable. A separate shower and a large soaking tub stocked with the spa’s signature pomegranate bath salts from Santa Maria Novella help make these rooms feel intimate.
Sea View Deluxe Open Space Suite
The Sea View Deluxe Open Space Suite (Laurus) is the only one of its kind in the hotel and contains unique historical context. Once a nun’s refectory, the open-plan room reflects and preserves this heritage. An elegantly furnished living room stands before the bedroom, with its green-and-gold, antique-framed king-size bed, and large bathroom. This bedroom has ample closet space due to the additional storage provided by the custom-made, stylish closet partition that separates the bedroom space from the living room sitting area.
The entire space looks out directly over the gardens, infinity pool, and Gulf of Salerno. The extraordinary bathroom is designed in dark wood and Jerusalem stone with a separate walk-in shower and soaking tub for relaxing baths. Pamper yourself with Santa Maria Novella pomegranate bath salts and Santa Maria Novella body lotion from our signature spa collection. Just make sure you leave yourself extra time for primping at the seated vanity, as the window above it has distractingly beautiful ocean views.
Sea View Deluxe Terrace Suite
With its own private foyer entrance, the Sea View Deluxe Terrace Suite (Melissa) instantly feels like a private residence as your first view inside is of the double doors to the terrace and the stunning sea beyond. The suite is defined by a double-length outdoor terrace with multiple access entries. Views from the terrace look out to Monastero Santa Rosa’s gardens, infinity pool, and the Gulf of Salerno.
Décor in the living room is a blend of luxuriously appointed furnishings, contemporary Italian style, and antique period pieces. The suite also features a walk-in closet and king-size bed swathed in fine Italian sheets and windows overlooking the sea from both the bedroom and bathroom. The extraordinary bathroom features custom-designed dark wood cabinets and Jerusalem stone, as well as a separate walk-in shower and oversize tub for soaking with Santa Maria Novella pomegranate bath salts. Pamper yourself with Santa Maria Novella body lotion from our signature spa collection.
Sea View Premium Terrace Suite
The Sea View Premium Terrace Suite (Citrus) has historic ties to the Kennedy family. In the 1960s, when the monastery had become the well-known Albergo Monastero di Santa Rosa, one of the “39 castles of Italy,” Jacqueline Kennedy used to lunch here on freshly caught local fish when this suite’s space housed the property’s original dining area. Now, its enormous terrace hangs over the center of the property, suspended over the Amalfi Coast with breathtaking coastal and sea views. Complete with alfresco dining table, lounges, lemon trees, and a retractable canopy when the Amafli sun blazes too strong, it is an ideal locale for a small private reception or dinner party.
The indoor living and dining room luxuriously juxtaposes contemporary Italian style with antique period pieces. The suite’s bedroom, with a king-size bed swathed in fine Italian linens, leads to the extraordinary bathroom designed in dark wood and Jerusalem stone with separate walk-in shower and double-wide tub for long soothing baths with Santa Maria Novella pomegranate bath salts. The bathroom is framed by a window overlooking the gardens, infinity pool, and Gulf of Salerno. We invite you to pamper yourself with our Santa Maria Novella body lotion selected from our signature spa collection.

Thermal bathing benefits include relaxation, an improvement in the respiratory system, cleansing of the body, and strengthening of the immune system.
