Clinging to the lush Mediterranean cliffs of Positano, this hotel has an especially dramatic setting, with panoramic sea views from its sprawling suites, terraces and even the tennis court. Glamorous decor and flourishing gardens add to the hotel’s unique appeal, as does the elevator carved into rock that transports guests down to the private beach. Try the Italian fine-dining plates of chef Alois Vanlangenaeker on the terrace of Michelin-starred restaurant Zass, and indulge in caviar and gold treatments at the La Prairie spa. Past guests include Julia Roberts and Robert De Niro. Request Prestige Room number five for particularly captivating views of Positano.
