In the small town of Praiano, between Amalfi and Positano, the Casa Angelina hotel was one of the first real design hotels to open along the Amalfi coast.
The hotel’s sleek, modern exterior is mirrored by its décor inside; white is very much the dominant colour throughout, with contemporary paintings, sculptures and Murano glass pieces softening the crisp minimalist vibe.
Casa Angelina has 43 rooms and suites in two buildings, many with terraces overlooking the sea. In addition, self-catering options are provided four converted fishermen’s cottages at the beach below the hotel.
On the hotel’s top floor, and accessed by an exterior lift, the restaurant at Casa Angelina is called Un Piano Nel Cielo, meaning ‘a floor in the sky’. As you’d expect, the views from here across to Capri are sensational, both from the terrace and through the restaurant’s huge windows.
The Marrakech Bar specialises in mojitos and has a cliff-edge terrace. Alternatively, take your drink on the outdoor pool’s sundeck, where snacks and light meals are also served. The hotel also has an indoor hydrotherapy pool.
La Gavitella beach, directly below Casa Angelina, faces west, which is unusual for the Amalfi coast, and means that its restaurant and bar still bask in the evening sunshine long after others are in the shade.
Casa Angelina does feel like a hotel for adults, but children (under 10) are welcome, in low season only.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate the Amalfi Coast into a greater Italian or European holiday. Take a look at A Private Ski Safari in the European Alps as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
