A far cry from its original life as a winery, the space is now a place for detoxing thanks to its new lease of life as a spa.
Unique in the region, the Monastero Santa Rosa spa is large and well equipped and could even be described as a destination of its own. As if there weren't already enough awe-inducing features of this hotel, but the luxe spa could well top the list.
Merely stepping into the multi-storey central treatment room it takes your breath away and the stone cavern walls induce a tranquil, calm feeling of contentment. The 750-foot space feels simultaneously spacious yet intimate - a place of sanctuary, healing and comfort not unlike its early days as a monastery.
Preserved within each treatment room are the 17th Century vaulted ceilings and a nod to Italy's Roman bathing heritage is apparent in the arched and labyrinthine Thermal Suite, with other spa highlights including a hydrotherapy pool, ice fountain, pomegranate-infused foot spa and rock sauna.
The 80m2 Spa Suite is definitely worthy of special mention . Complete with steam room, Rasul, relaxation lounge, twin wet and dry treatment couches, private dressing and grooming space and an ample garden terrace, the space truly a spa within a spa.
Treatment ingredients are heavily focused on the essential oils of Farmacia Santa Maria Novella - one of the world's oldest pharmacies. Our favourites include rosemary, lavender, sweet orange and pomegranate fragrance; made for Catherine de Medici. Try the Iris Idralia deep cleansing facial and the bitter orange peel scrub. Bliss.
A trip to the Monastero Santa Rosa is simply incomplete without a visit to the world-class spa. We guarantee you will leave feeling completely rejuvenated and revitalised. Owner Bianca Sharma has truly transformed this former monastery into an unsurpassed Amalfi wonder.
