Borgo Santandrea, a new cliffside hotel, is now open on the Amalfi Coast in Italy following a three-year restoration work on the 1960s building.

The new hotel features 29 guest rooms, 16 suites, three restaurants and two bars, which are located between the highest points of the property.

The three restaurants are  La Libreria, Alici and The Beach Club.

Designed by landscape architect Philip Adiutori, the property also includes a collection of garden terraces filled with olive, lemon and pomegranate trees.

Guests can reach the hotel’s private beach through a steep cliffside in a lift, or a series of walkways and staircases.

Borgo Santandrea general manager and co-owner Maurizio Orlacchio said: “We are so excited to open the doors to Borgo Santandrea.

“It has been a beautiful challenge, over the past three years, to restore the property and I feel proud to have brought so many talented artisans and iconic Italian brands together to create a one-of-a-kind hotel that is truly ‘Made in Italy’.

“We feel Borgo Santandrea is much more a home than a hotel and we look forward to welcoming our first guests this summer.”

In 2019, Rocco Forte Hotels, a family of 12 individual hotels and resorts, opened Hotel de la Ville in Rome, Italy.

The hotel features 104 rooms and suites, six food and beverage outlets as well as a courtyard, whose design was lifted by George Carter.

Hotel de la Ville, which underwent a renovation to convert it to the 18-century palazzo, also includes the 550m2 Rocco Forte Spa.
