Il San Pietro di Positano

    Perched somewhat improbably along a rocky overhang on the Amalfi Coast, Il San Pietro’s 61 guest rooms look down upon the Bay of Naples and the resort’s private beach (accessible by elevator), which has a sunbathing platform and bar. Terraces and fragrant gardens line the property’s bluffs, offering similarly stunning views of Positano, Capri, and Li Galli. Accommodations Each of the 61 guest rooms features tiled floors and striking Bay of Naples views. Recreation Boat tours along the Amalfi Coast and swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing on the resort’s private beach. Dining The ocean-view dining room has earned a Michelin star; more casual fare is available at the beach café. Worthy Diversion Charter a boat to Buca di Bacco, a beachfront Italian restaurant that opened just days after the end of World War II. Rates From $655 to $1,440 in the high season; $550 to $1,180 during the winter months.
