Borgo Santandrea, a new cliffside hotel in Amalfi, Italy, 90 meters above sea level, has opened, following a meticulous three-year construction. The hotel is a passion project of two Italian brothers from Ischia, Italy, who bring generations of hospitality experience to Borgo Santandrea.
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 overhaul over the last three years, combining midcentury 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.
Inspired by the building’s origins in the 1960s, the owners sought to bring attention to the original midcentury features while creating a “home” that was unmistakably Italian. The team of designers and landscapers worked hand-in-hand with architect Bonaventura 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 Italian designer Molteni, to custom items from family-run furniture designers, Tosconova and LISAR, and bespoke work by local architects, artists, and craftsmen.
