Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi's infinity swimming pool is located on a terrace directly above the sea. Similarly breathtaking views can be seen from the Monk's Walk and the Loggia. Those wishing to combine a holiday by the sea with some well deserved pampering, will no doubt spend hours luxuriating in the hotel's wellness center, equipped with Turkish bath, massage corner and gym.
Guests dining on the panoramic terrace of the "Dei Cappuccini" restaurant choose from an excellent selection of traditional local dishes and typical Italian specialties. The pool bar is the perfect place in which to enjoy a refreshing drink or a quick snack.

From the heights of its cliff-top position, the Grand Hotel Convento di Amalfi dominates the whole of the Bay of Amalfi.
