While the medieval foundations of Anantara Convento di Amalfi Grand Hotel are resplendently ancient, the decor within this elegant bolt-hole is tastefully modern yet understated. You may find that the resort is more suited to couples, solo visitors and friends rather than those with young children as the focus here, in fitting with the monastic setting, is on quietude and relaxation. Indeed, the sea-facing infinity pool and spa, complete with a Turkish bath and secluded, outdoor relaxation area, screams peace and tranquillity. What’s more, Amalfi itself is a stone’s throw from the hotel, with the focal part of the historic centre being the Piazza del Duomo, its boutique shops and promenade cafes must-do experiences. Once you’re done there, make your way back and feast on fusion cuisine at Kyushu; its terrace overlooking the coast and food succinctly prepared by international chef Julian Marmol making for the ultimate dinnertime idyll.
