RELAX ON THE AMALFI COAST

A place of an abundant scent of rosemary and lemon. The wide tiered gardens that cascade to an infinity-edged pool, seemingly embrace the panoramic views from the edge of a towering cliff facade dropping dramatically to the calm azure of the Amalfi Coast. 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; a 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 historical single treatment rooms.

 

Since 1612, Farmacia Santa Maria Novella has 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 petitgrain, 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, trusted, and expertly offered spa treatments, presented in a spa of natural historical beauty.
