, Via Umberto I, 70, Praiano, Salerno.
Hotel Margherita boasts a wonderful terrace with a panoramic view, complete with a swimming pool. The elevated position gives great views in all directions, yet the beach is very close. The hotel even provides a free shuttle down to the beach in Praiano (and more importantly, back up again!). From here, all the wonders of the Amalfi Coast are at your fingertips: uber-fashionable Positano, the charming Emerald Grotto, spectacular mountain landscapes, the Isle of Capri and the picturesque Amalfi coast road.
The guest rooms at Hotel Margherita are comfortable and romantic, with just a hint of quirkiness to set them apart. They exude a pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere complete with colourful majolicas and traditional furniture. Each room has a private balcony or terrace, with the Deluxe and Superior rooms overlooking the sea and the Classic rooms facing the scented lemon garden. Modern comforts include air-conditioning, a television with Sky channels, wi-fi, a minibar, tea and coffee-making set and an en-suite bathroom with shower.
The M’ama! restaurant and bar is a place to taste the delicacies of local cuisine surrounded by the intense colours of the hills and the sea. The terrace is the preferred backdrop throughout the summer and most other seasons too, but there is a beautifully decorated dining room for those who prefer to eat inside. Ristorante M’ama! keenly promotes fresh seasonal ingredients sourced directly from Campania’s many farmers and growers.
Many hotels offer wellness, a massage or a relaxation area but Hotel Margherita have followed something a little different – taking the precious work of Anna Ruocco to provide some unique gems to restore the health the of body and mind. There are conventional massages available too, and a fitness area which again takes full advantage of the spectacular views.
