Best Hotels on the Amalfi Coast (Photo by Sebastian Leonhardt on Unsplash)

If you are considering a trip to Italy this summer, then you simply must check out our best hotels on the Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Coast (in Italian, Costiera Amalfitana) lies in Italy’s southwestern Salerno province in the Campania region on the Tyrrhenian Sea, wrapping around the Gulf of Salerno. It is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places on Earth with breathtaking Amalfi Coast hotels. No wonder, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just a short drive from Naples airport, you’ll find the beautiful resort village and honeymoon paradise of Positano. The medieval fishing village is hidden in a coastal enclave and filled with charming pastel-painted houses that hug the cliff faces overlooking the beach. Many of these now house all-inclusive 5-star hotels with direct beach access and high-end Michelin-star restaurants. We picked our favourites of all Best Hotels on the Amalfi Coast for you to create this wonderful list!

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, please check local regulations before booking.

Its opulent guest rooms are renowned for their signature colourful handmade tile floors, their tasteful antiques, and their balconies that each offer stunning sea views. Le Sirenuse’s restaurant enchants with candlelight at sunset, while the palazzo’s own traditional sailing boat invites hotel guests on private trips along the picturesque Amalfi coastline.
