On the exclusive Naples waterfront lies the 5* Romeo Hotel, a unique boutique residence with views of Mount Vesuvius and the Amalfi coast.
83 rooms and suites offer luxurious lodgings with simple design and elegant features, some boasting embroidered linens, marble bathrooms and espresso machines. Views across Naples, Capri and the Sorrento coast are enjoyed by all, as is the unparalleled service the Romeo staff supply.
Oriental ingredients are combined with Mediterranean flavours by the Michelin starred chef at the refined Il Comandante restaurant, with dinner served on the terrace during the summer months. The Romeo Sushi restaurant offers an alternative option, with fresh Japanese favourites available at the marble water-fountain counter for lunch and dinner. The Beluga Skybar offers a selection of cocktails and other beverages, while the private wine cellar contains an extensive selection for guests' perusal.
The rooftop pool on the 9th floor is a veritable suntrap, with views across the harbour to enjoy from one of the sunbeds or chaise longues. If that is not relaxing enough, advanced technologies including a Finnish sauna and Frigidarium are available at the Dogana del Sale Spa.
The Romeo is within strolling distance of many of the historical sights and modern attractions of Naples, including the Piazza del Plebiscito, Teatro San Carlo and the Palazzo Reale. The ancient sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum are easily reached by car, whether chauffeured or rented. Just nextdoor is the Molo Beverello, the main pier, from which ferries and hydrofoils depart for Capri, Sorrento and Positano.
