Last October, we travelled with a group of travel professionals to the gorgeous Hotel Miramalfi on the Amalfi Coast. Ella Dunham from Exsus Travel joined the group and had some lovely things to say about the hotel. Read on to find out more about her trip.
Nestled along the stunning Amalfi Coast in Italy, Hotel Miramalfi offers a serene retreat where the azure waters of the Mediterranean meet the breathtaking cliffs. My two-night stay at this charming establishment back in October 2023 was nothing short of magical. From the warm hospitality to the spectacular views, every aspect of Hotel Miramalfi made for an incredible trip, and is a place I am sure to return to.
Established in 1956 by Francesco Mansi, Hotel Miramalfi is more than just a luxurious stay; it’s a testament to a man’s love for his homeland. Francesco, who made his fortune in Mexico, returned to Amalfi with a dream. After six years of dedication and hard work, he stood on the terrace overlooking Amalfi and named his creation ‘Miramalfi,’ meaning ‘Look at Amalfi’ in Spanish. Today, Francesco’s grandson, Francesco Mansi, manages the hotel with the same passion, creating a seamless connection between past and present.
The hotel boasts 40 meticulously furnished guest rooms, each offering a private bathroom and a mesmerizing sea view. From the cosy Queen Room to the spacious Suites, Hotel Miramalfi provides a range of options to suit every traveller’s needs. I stayed in a stunning suite with the most beautiful, sweeping views of the ocean and a huge indoor bathtub which was perfect for relaxation after a day of exploring Amalfi.
Dining with a View
Donna Emma, La Cucina Restaurant, and the Azure Lounge Bar provide guests with culinary delights accompanied by unparalleled views of Amalfi. The chef and his team blend traditional and contemporary dishes, offering a taste of the region’s rich culinary heritage. The Azure Lounge Bar, perfect for evening cocktails, complements the experience with its panoramic setting – head barman Andrea created some beautiful concoctions for us to try based on our preferences. I truly haven’t experienced cuisine quite like this anywhere else, and the wine pairings put together by the head sommelier were exquisite.
Sunset at Mario’s Lounge Bar
As the day winds down, guests can head to Mario’s Lounge Bar, named after Francesco Mansi’s son. Here, one can enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, sipping aperitifs or cocktails while witnessing the sunset transition into a night sky illuminated by the lights of Amalfi.
Hotel Miramalfi goes beyond the ordinary, providing a Beach Club with easy access to the Mediterranean waters, a saltwater pool, and a unique passageway adorned with Mediterranean flora. The addition of a gym with a sea view and a dedicated wellness room further enhances the overall experience.
Exploring Amalfi and Beyond
With a complimentary shuttle service to the town centre and easy access to nearby attractions such as Ravello, Positano, and Capri, Hotel Miramalfi is an ideal base for exploring the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Amalfi Coast. The concierge is always ready to assist in organising boat rentals, excursions, or private transfers.
Hotel Miramalfi prides itself on providing a range of services, including on-site parking, a 24/7 reception, concierge service, laundry facilities, and free Wi-Fi in both rooms and common areas. The dedicated team ensures that every guest’s needs are met with utmost care and attention.
My stay at Hotel Miramalfi was nothing short of a dream come true. From the rich history that permeates the establishment to the modern amenities and breathtaking views, it truly encapsulates the essence of Amalfi. For those seeking an unforgettable escape along the Amalfi Coast, Hotel Miramalfi is the epitome of luxury, tradition, and warm Italian hospitality.
