- Grand Hotel Excelsior description
The Grand Hotel Excelsior is all about the sea views. It’s about 1,500 feet above the town of Amalfi and on the edge of the cliff, which means you get uninterrupted views from pretty much everywhere in the hotel. Every room comes with a private balcony so you can step out each morning and enjoy relaxing sea views before heading to breakfast. We love the restaurant's terrace - it’s hard not to linger here over your morning coffee when the views are this good.
When you do manage to tear yourself away, it’s quite easy to visit the Amalfi Coast and explore the area. There’s a free shuttle from the hotel that will have you in the centre of Amalfi in less than 15 minutes. There’s lots to see and do in the town and it’s a popular sight for lots of tourists. Buses leave regularly from the centre of town to Ravello, Sorrento and other coastal towns. The best way to travel is by boat though – jump on board and enjoy the views as you sail to Positano or the quieter towns of Maiori and Minori. Boats run frequently and are a cost-effective way to explore the region.
There’s lots of opportunities to relax at the hotel. The pool has plenty of loungers that look out over the town and sea. There’s a private beach club too (you'll need to reserve your spot in advance) with a restaurant for delicious lunches. Make sure you check out the American Bar before dinner. It’s a great spot to watch the sun set and try some local limoncello. The restaurant’s open for dinner if you don’t fancy heading back into town. It’s got a nice terrace that’s a great spot for al fresco dining.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 35 mins by private car from Naples airport.
