Narrow alleys carved between stucco-fronted houses and a deluge of steps, mellowed by the years, will guide you to the Hotel Caruso, in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast. Stone lions guard its entrance, but don't be afraid, they will let you in to admire the ornamented column of the pillared hall.

The Hotel Caruso offers a breathtaking range of possibilities for our guests. Very spacious rooms, each room with its own unique style. The furniture reflects Neapolitan style and tradition and has been exclusively created for Hotel Caruso; some rooms also feature antique 18th and 19th-century pieces. Reproductions of some of the furniture used in the ancient 11th century palazzo have also been created, to add a link to the past.

The Hotel Caruso's rooms, of which 24 are suites and 24 double rooms, have been splendidly restored allowing you to relax in elegant and spacious surroundings. Enjoy a stunning sea view or a sunny balcony.

The hotel has a panoramic heated pool. The fully equipped fitness centre provides everything you need to maintain your exercise routine away from home. At the Wellness Centre, guests enjoy superb treatments by Aromatherapie and Maria Galland.
