A luxury gem on Italy’s fabled Sorrento Coast: Hotel Mediterraneo

Hotel Mediterraneo

Hotel Mediterraneo in Sorrento evolves from a 3-star to a 5-star luxury destination, offering opulent accommodations and Michelin-star dining with stunning views of Mount Vesuvius.

Perched high on the rocky coastline, overlooking the little town of Sorrento, the Hotel Mediterraneo is a white Liberty-style building that has undergone a remarkable transformation under the stewardship of the Monti-Marasca family. From its beginnings as a family-run 3-star establishment, it upgraded to 4 stars and, more recently, blossomed into a luxurious 5-star retreat, setting new standards of opulence and elegance.

Commanding breathtaking views of the bay, from the city of Naples to the iconic silhouette of Mount Vesuvius, and down tothe Amalfi Drive and the idyllic island of Capri, the Hotel Mediterraneo is an unparalleled vantage point to soak in the beauty of the Campania region.

Pietro Monti, co-owner and marketing manager, says that Sorrento is a must-visit destination. “On this particular part of the coast we pride ourselves on our warm and authentic hospitality, and on the excellence of our cuisine,” he remarks. “With 14 Michelin-starred restaurants in the vicinity – and our own Vesuvio Restaurant – Sorrento has rightfully earned its place as a fine-dining epicentre.” Monti also emphasizes the hotel’s strategic location, which provides easy access to renowned attractions such as Capri, Ravello, Amalfi, Pompeii, and Naples, all of which are within an hour’s reach by sea; “our hotel’s position makes it possible to cut hours off a day’s excursion.”

The 61 rooms and junior suites, spread across five floors, exude a refined maritime charm. The tasteful décor is inspired by the colours of the Mediterranean, with each room and suite offering a tranquil sanctuary for guests to unwind. The Lepietre Cozy Spa, featuring a salt room, provides rejuvenating treatments, while direct access to the sea and the private deck with sun loungers and umbrellas ensures a seamless transition from relaxation to recreation.

Culinary delights await at the Vesuvio Restaurant, where Chef Giuseppe Saccone showcases the finest local ingredients in traditional and international dishes and, under the guidance of sommelier Olimpia Pastore, guests embark on a sensory journey through the finest Italian and international wines. The Aqua Pool Lounge and the Oltremare Lounge Bar offer delectable options for casual dining, and there is a meeting room for small groups. As the sun sets over the horizon, it’s time to retreat to the rooftop Vista SkyBar to delight in live music, DJ sets, champagnes, cocktails and finger foods against the backdrop of a painted sky over the Mediterranean.
