Borgo Santandrea opens with 29 guestrooms and 16 suites, each one offering uninterrupted views of the sea and ancient fisherman’s hamlet of Conca dei Marini. The property has undergone a detailed renovation over the last three years, combining Mid-Century design details with classic Mediterranean style.
White and blue hues feature throughout, alongside geometric hand-painted tiles, antique furniture, and hand-crafted pieces by local Amalfitano artisans. To reach the hotel’s private beach, guests will descend the cliffside in a lift, or amble down a series of walkways and staircases amongst the fragrant terraced gardens of olive and lemon trees.
Inspired by the building’s origins in the 1960s, the owners sought to bring attention to the original Mid-Century features whilst creating a ‘home’ that was unmistakeably Italian. A labour of love since 2018, the team of designers and landscapers worked hand-in-hand with architect Rino Gambardella to ensure every corner of the property was a thoughtful reflection of the artistry and craftsmanship of the Campania region. The resulting interiors and gardens are a ‘Made in Italy’ showcase: from ‘Heritage Collection’ pieces by leading Italian designer Molteni, to custom items from family-run furniture designers, Tosconova and LISAR, and bespoke work by local architects, artists and craftsmen.
