The room to book, dreamy Eaudesea Experience cave-suites take advantage of their cliffside location for an added edge
If the staggeringly beautiful clifftop trail from Agerola to Positano is the Path of the Gods, then Casa Angelina’s shorefront cave-suites framing azure vistas at the foot of the wild, untamed ridges are surely fit to be their homes.
Housed in a clutch of former fisherman’s houses mere steps from the turquoise waters lapping La Gavitella beach, the Eaudesea Experience rooms are carved into the natural cliff face, flaunting exposed-rock nooks among the hotel’s trademark all-white aesthetic.
White-on-white interiors are pared back in design, channelling modern minimalism at its finest – a standalone bath tub in bedrooms the icing on the cake. That’s not to say comfort is jeopardised for style: the charming cave-suites are peppered with all the latest mod-cons – Bang & Olufsen flatscreen TVs, Apple iPads, touch-panel lighting. What’s more, guests gain access to the Ulysses Lounge, an exclusive club lounge for leisurely breakfasts, where personal butlers are on hand for A-list service.
Sitting pretty on Amalfi Coast’s only west-facing beach, the chic suites catch the last of the rays – the perfect spot to watch the sun go out in a blaze of glory. Private terraces take in sweeping panoramas stretching from the bay of Positano and islets of Li Galli to Punta Campanella and Capri – the landscapes blushing pink come sunset.
Immerse yourself in a bubble of luxurious privacy, and then simply hop in the glass elevator – or tackle the 200 steps – to Casa Angelina to take advantage of the shimmering pools, sea-view spa and clifftop restaurant terrace – Hotel of the Gods, indeed.
