The sleek and stylish Casa Angelina Lifestyle Hotel, perched on the cliffs of quiet, lovely Praiano is situated between the popular Amalfi Coast towns of Positano and Amalfi. We arrived at the stunning Casa Angelina after hiking the strenuous Walk of The Gods from Positano. The second we stepped inside Casa Angelina resulted in pure bliss as we were greeted by the friendly, welcoming staff who quickly whisked our bags away and replaced them with delicious welcoming drinks. We knew from that moment that our stay at Casa Angelina would be the perfect, luxurious, relaxing stay we had been waiting for.
Praiano is ideally located, allowing you peace and relaxation, yet with luxury of the rest of the Amalfi Coast being only a short trip by road or sea. The popular, more commercialised towns of Positano and Amalfi are just around the corner and within a short 10-20 minute drive, with muscial Ravello also only 30 minutes away. Casa Angelina provide its guests with a regular shuttle bus service transporting its guests to and from Positano, allowing you the opportunity to explore busy Positano’s beauty, beaches, shops and restaurants and then escape and return to your beautiful, peaceful Casa Angelina. The helpful staff can also arrange private tours and boat trips for you along the Amalfi Coast and even to Capri!
Casa Angelina is one of the most luxurious hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying in and as they perfectly describe it:
“A little piece of Heaven at the very heart of the Amalfi Coast.”
Casa Angelina’s sophisticated and stylish white decor is complemented by the countless beautifully coloured Murano Glass statues and artworks featured throughout the hotel.
There are 8 varieties of luxurious suites and rooms, with 39 in total. All are equipped with the most modern of amenities and appliances and decorated in Casa Angelina’s signature white, providing the most elegant, luxurious atmosphere. We chose the ‘Romantic Room’ described as being ‘ideal for lovers’. The room is romantic, intimate and offered one of the best balcony views I have ever experienced in all my time travelling the world, with views stretching along the cliffs to seaside Positano, out to the sea and all the way to Capri. The rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious with a lovely private sea view balcony with table and chairs. Also included are a desk, flat screen TV, modern electronic room control touch panels for lights and air-conditioning, complimentary WI-FI internet access and a beautiful spacious bathroom complete with bathrobes and luxurious l’Occitane toiletries. The bed itself is wonderfully comfortable with the softest pillows and cotton sheets, offering you a perfect nights sleep. Waking up in a beautiful, comfortable, contemporary room with the most incredibly view out our balcony was like a dream. Simple, beautiful touches such as single roses are the perfect complement to the contemporary décor. Casa Angelina is unique and exclusive, it is also a relaxing paradise that is child free (with children over 12 welcome).
