    1. HOTEL SANTA CATERINA, AMALFI COAST, ITALY
    1. HOTEL SANTA CATERINA, AMALFI COAST, ITALY
    Built into rocky green cliffs that tumble down to the sea, the Hotel Santa Caterina is an embodiment of Amalfi Coast dreams. Bright bougainvillea blooms adorn corners of the 19th-century mansion, and lush terraced gardens teem with citrus trees and vine-covered pergolas. Light-filled white interiors are decorated in an elegant Mediterranean style, peppered with antique pieces and sweet details like handpainted majolica tiles. The sunny guest rooms and suites open onto balconies with sea views and come stocked with Bulgari toiletries. Even the spa offers a dose of local flavor with a signature Amalfi Gold lemon massage.
