Italy: Borgo Santandrea, a 35-room luxury hotel on the Amalfi Coast, has opened following a three year construction and restoration.
Comprising 29 guest rooms and 16 suites, the property has been transformed by architect Bonaventura Gambardella, interior designer Nikita Bettoni, kitchen designer Andrea Viacava, and landscape architect Philip Adiutori.
Three restaurants and two bars, under the director of Michelin-starred executive chef Crescenzo Scotti, will make use of local products and ingredients.
Other amenities include a private beach, jetty, oceanfront pool, and a forthcoming exclusive beach club.
Commenting on the opening, Maurizio Orlacchio, general manager and co-owner 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.”
Orlacchio and his brother, co-owners of the hotel, have been working on the construction and design of Borgo Santandrea since 2018. Located on a cliffside on the Amalfi Coast, the property itself dates back to the 1960s.
