Monastero Santa Rosa (Amalfi Coast, Italy)
Located atop a limestone cliff 1,000 feet above the Tyrrhenian Sea in Italy, the views alone from this incredible spot are worth the trip to Monastero Santa Rosa. But the hotel itself — a converted, 17th-century monastery — is as impressive as its Amalfi Coast surroundings.
Everything from its original wooden doors to the long, arched corridors have been kept intact and beautifully restored. Its 20 suites have high, vaulted ceilings, Jerusalem stone floors and 17th-century furnishings handpicked by owner Bianca Sharma.
The piece de resistance: a heated infinity pool on the edge of a cliff, 660 feet above the ocean.
