Housed in a converted 12th century palazzo, Palazzo Avino is a charming, family run boutique hotel located on Ravello’s eastern ridge and has stunning views across to Monte Avvocata and the Bay of Salerno.
All of the 43 rooms and suites are elegantly decorated with handmade Vietri tiles, antique carpets and 18th century furniture, combined with modern touches such as ipod docks and satellite telly.
Manicured terraces lead down to the pool and restaurant - the Michelin starred Rossellini's, which is one of the best places to eat on the Amalfi Coast. A quintessential Italian restaurant, the Mediterranean food is sublime - thanks to the chef Giovanni Vanacore. Other dining options include Terrazza Belvedere, whose terrace perches over the cliff and looks over the Amalfi Coast; Caffé dell'Arte, serving cocktails and light snacks; and the Lobster & Martini Bar, which cooks up fresh lobster and has over 65 different Martinis to choose from.
The hotel's new capsule collection of rooms launched in 2020 includes seven new rooms, designed by Cristina Celestino. The hotel's new interior design involves some of the most important rooms, including the Belvedere suite - which features a terrace overlooking the sea and a private swimming pool.
With the hotel being all about the views, its only fitting that the spa also overlooks the Amalfi Coast as well. There is also a gym with great sea views, a pool and a rooftop solarium with two whirlpools.
When not relaxing by the pool, guests can use the hotel's Clubhouse by the Sea, which has access to the beach platforms, a small swimming pool and a complimentary shuttle to and from the hotel.
