After decades of restoration and renovation, this 17th century monastery reopened in 2012 as a boutique luxury hotel, a fine accolade to its abundance of rich history. Vaulted ceilings lead down cool stone corridors, dotted with Italian antiques, to tastefully furnished rooms beyond. From every window, breath-taking views of shimmering water and jagged cliffs unfold, perfectly encompassing the hotel’s motto: ‘At each window, the sun. From each window, the sea.’ Four tiers of elegantly landscaped gardens lead down to a heated infinity pool which blends seamlessly with the sweeping sea views beyond. Sink into the shade of a canopied daybed and surrender to the seduction of this magical Italian haven of romance and relaxation, nestled within the rocks of one of the most iconic coastlines on the planet.

Why we love it

The views from this stunning location are rivaled only by its menu of culinary delights. Monastero Santa Rosa’s Michelin star restaurant is one not to be missed, serving authentic Mediterranean cuisine with delectable, innovative twists. Here, the size and intimacy of this secluded property really comes into play, with chefs and sommeliers delighted to create bespoke dining experiences, exclusively catering for every culinary desire. Feast on perfectly prepared, locally sourced produce, while soaking up the great expanse of the azure sea before you from the vantage point of the restaurant’s spectacular terrace. This is a destination characterised as much by its food as its views, and Il Refettorio truly does not disappoint.
