CONCA DEI MARINI, Italy-  Monastero Santa Rosa, a luxurious new boutique hotel and spa built into a Cliffside above Conca dei Marini on the Amalfi Coast of Italy, has become a preferred supplier to leading luxury travel network Virtuoso. This by-invitation-only organization comprises over 320 agencies with more than 7,200 elite travel specialists in 20 countries in North and South America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, as well as over 1,000 of the world’s best travel providers and premier destinations.

Monastero Santa Rosa opened in May of 2012, and immediately became a sought-after destination.

Built into the side of a mountain with floors connected by a glass-fronted elevator affording panoramic views, the hotel seems to float over the coastline from a rock base on the edge of a cliff which plunges into the depths of the Gulf of Salerno. Originally a 17th century monastery, the building was restored to honor its roots.  Both the exterior and the interior maintain the asceticism of the property, offset by warm and inviting contemporary design within.

The Amalfi Coast boasts the most beautiful vistas in the world, and Monastero Santa Rosa takes full advantage of them with 20 sea view guest rooms and suites, a full-service spa, a heated infinity pool, beautiful gardens, and a special herb garden, all situated over five terraced levels. Each room is named after one of the historical herbs still grown at the property site.

The pièce de résistance of the hotel is its extraordinary Spa.  The Spa designer kept intact the original 17th century vaulted ceilings and many of its rustic walls in order to maintain the intriguing character of the original rooms.  The unique experience here may only be described as a journey, an event distinguished by the monastery’s authenticity combined with the amenities of a modern spa.

Travel and tourism make up one of the largest industries on the planet, employing more than 260 million people worldwide and generating nearly ten percent of global GDP. Virtuoso is proud to be a member of the World Travel & Tourism Council, which works to raise awareness of the importance of this industry. Monastero Santa Rosa is proud to be a preferred supplier of Virtuoso.
