“Casa Angelina is a beautiful and sophisticated property which feel like a place for adults, but children under 10 are welcome (just in low season only). The hotel’s sleek, modern exterior is mirrored by its décor inside; white is very much the dominant colour throughout. Unusually for the Amalfi coast, La Gavitella beach, directly below Casa Angelina, faces west which means that its restaurant and bar still bask in the evening sunshine long after others are in the shade.”
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.
Sleek and stylish, Casa Angelina comes with contemporary paintings, sculptures and Murano glass pieces softening the crisp minimalist vibe. The 43 rooms and suites are located in two buildings, many with terraces overlooking the sea. In addition, self-catering options are provided in four converted fishermen’s cottages.
On the hotel’s top floor, 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.
