Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa
Amalfi Coast, Italy
- Adults Only
- Thermal Facilities
- Pool – Outdoor
Striking the perfect balance of seclusion without solitude, Monastero Santa Rosa allows guests to determine the tone of their stay, whether they’re looking to disappear for an intimate getaway or gather with the group and make new acquaintances.
It’s hard to imagine that the generous grounds, filled with four levels of gardens, lush landscaping and canopied daybeds, serve just 20 rooms and suites
Where most boutique properties might only offer in-room massages, Monastero Santa Rosa hosts a fully equipped spa to rival any major city spa, offering not just treatment rooms, but large-scale amenities that include a sauna, steam, mosaic-tiled experience shower, hydro pool, and tepidarium.
The Spa at Monastero Santa Rosa
Centuries of history behind ancient walls tell a tale of community and the offering of sanctuary, healing and comfort.
Each room within the Spa preserves the original 17th Century vaulted ceilings and many of its rustic walls, maintaining the monastic heritage of this beautiful property. The Italian heritage of bathing is presented in the form of a Thermal Suite, consisting of a collection of vaulted spaces inter-connecting the various warm rooms via arched openings & changes of levels… a discovery around each corner. The Suite includes a stunning double-height vaulted Tepidarium with pomegranate infused foot spas & heated mosaic loungers; domed Aromatic Steam Room; crushed Ice fountain to refresh between thermal bathing; Rock Sauna; Hydro Pool and Emotion Showers.
The most exceptional treatment room – the Spa Suite, is a stunning 80m2 double height vaulted space with Rasul; steam room; double wet & dry treatment couches; manicure / pedicure; relaxation lounge; private dressing & grooming space and a garden terrace… a ‘private spa within a spa’.
Alternatively, guests can enjoy a treatment outdoors under the shade of a pergola within the privacy of the Treatment Garden, or be cocooned within one of the historic single treatment rooms.
Since 1612, Farmacia Santa Maria Novella have provided a multitude of benefits derived from the naturally occurring plants and flowers of Italy and the Mediterranean region, using their ancient and beautiful recipes of fragranced lotions, healing crèmes and balms.
The aromatic oils of Santa Maria Novella, summer oil of lemon, bergamot and petit grain, the deeply warm iris oil, aromatic herbs of rosemary, lavender and sweet orange and the unique fragrance of pomegranate, made for Catherine de Medici, are a delight to the senses. All of these wonderful aromas are woven into the timeless and fresh sense of vitality & joy provided by the delightful spa treatments.

The spiritual enchantment of the transformed monastery remains ever present in the luxuriously converted 20 rooms and suites, each named after herbs that the nuns would have used in making their medicines from the Monastero Santa Rosa garden.
Vaulted ceilings and the primary structure of the nuns’ rooms and refectory have been preserved and linked together with ensuites to create sumptuous bedrooms, each with a spellbinding sea view stretching from the Conca dei Marini’s fishing harbor below to Amalfi beyond.

The culinary treats of Santa Rosa are as unique as the monastery itself. Distinguished Executive Chef Christoph Bob has created an innovative Mediterranean gastronomic experience utilising the freshest ingredients from the surrounding Campania region.
Christoph has worked in some of the world’s most celebrated restaurants, but amore drew him to the Amalfi Coast. Married to a woman from the Amalfi Coast, Christoph muses, “I not only fell in love with my wife, I fell in love with the destination and its food. Nowhere on earth does the sun and the soil give us such richness of flavors as do the fresh produce, herbs, and seafood found right here on our coast.”
