Borgo Santandrea, a new cliffside hotel has opened, following a meticulous, ‘slow’ and respectful three-year restoration. Perched on a bluff 295 feet above the Tyrrhenian Sea, Borgo Santandrea overlooks the small picturesque fishermen’s village of Conca dei Marini—which happens to be home to Jackie O’s favorite local restaurant, La Tonnarella, as well as Sophia Loren’s longtime villa.
Borgo Santandrea opens with 29 guestrooms and 16 suites, each one offering uninterrupted views of the sea and ancient fisherman’s hamlet of Conca dei Marini. The property has undergone a detailed renovation over the last three years, combining Mid-Century design details with classic Mediterranean style. White and blue hues feature throughout, alongside geometric hand-painted tiles, antique furniture, and hand-crafted pieces by local Amalfitano artisans. To reach the hotel’s private beach, guests descend the cliffside in a lift, or amble down a series of walkways and staircases amongst fragrant terraced gardens of olive and lemon trees.
The resulting interiors and gardens are a ‘Made in Italy‘ showcase: from ‘Heritage Collection’ pieces by leading Italian designer Molteni&C, to custom items from family-run furniture designers, Tosconova and LISAR, and bespoke work by local architects, artists, and craftsmen. Three restaurants and two bars, located between the highest points of the luxury hotel, offer classic Mediterranean fare. Under the direction of Michelin-starred Executive Chef Crescenzo Scotti, the three restaurants, La Libreria, Alici and The Beach Club
Guests can book the spacious and elegant Deluxe Suite, which features a private garden with an infinity pool overlooking the sea for the ultimate indulgence.
