Anantara Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi will open in Spring 2023
Continuing Minor Hotels' European expansion, the group has announced that it will open Anantara Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi in the first quarter of 2023 following an extensive restoration and renovation.
Occupying a 13th-century monastery and former Cappuccini Friars Convent, the heritage hotel will be restored to its original glory, revealing new-look accommodation, refreshed dining concepts and a redesigned spa.
After the renovation, a new Anantara Spa will reopen with a total of three treatment rooms offering healing therapies and beauty treatments amid "monastic spirituality". The resort's upgraded leisure facilities will also include a sea-facing relaxation area and a fully equipped gym for workouts with coastal views.
Perched on a clifftop 80 metres above sea level with views of the Mediterranean Coast, the property will take inspiration from the original materials and designs of the 800-year building, balancing conservation, maintenance and restoration to preserve the original appearance of the façade while injecting the interiors with warmth and volume.
To convey continuity and heritage, the property's 52 guest rooms and suites will see existing tiled flooring, vaulted ceilings and lime-washed walls carefully preserved.
Anantara's signature hospitality experience will be delivered through the addition of rich textiles, sculptural furniture, locally-sourced contemporary art and the latest in high-tech comforts.
The suites will retain their vast terraces with plunge pools and sweeping views of the coast, while the resort's swimming pool area will be redesigned with custom-made furniture.
The public spaces will be rejuvenated, with the on-property late Baroque church, a popular destination for wedding ceremonies, maintaining its heritage marble altar and Majolica floor.
Formerly operating as NH Collection Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi, Anantara Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi will be the second Anantara property in Italy after Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome Hotel, and its eighth hotel in Europe.
