The Amalfi Coast - Many a great literary mind – from Renaissance scholar Giambattista Della Porta to Italian writer Renato Fucini to Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck, has used their pen profess the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. And though much has been written about this little corner of Italy, no piece of text, no matter how eloquent, can quite compare to seeing it first-hand. Casa Angelina is located right in the heart of the picturesque steep-sided coastal area, in Praiano's enchanting village between Positano and Amalfi.
A Little Piece of Heaven - Sitting on the high cliffs of the Amalfi Coast, in the authentic and charming village of Praiano (only 8 Km from Positano and 12 Km from Amalfi), Casa Angelina offers a sublime slice of modern minimalism on the Mediterranean, with an emphasis on elegant simplicity and first-rate food. The boutique 39-room hotel is an airy refuge where guests can rediscover the forgotten rhythms of long, drawn-out days and easy, lingering evenings. The hotel serves as a sanctuary, bearing a fresh, pared-back aesthetic and a white-on-white palette that accentuates both the sea and sky blues outside and the contemporary artworks on display inside. Understated chic is the design ethos, and subtle details are the raison d’être, to make sure everything is immaculate, from the pillowy and pristine white Etro cotton sheets dressing your bed right down to the carefully placed garnish of garden-grown herbs on your plate.
Facilities & Services - Because It’s the Extras that Count. Having everything you need to keep you feeling good, whether you want to work out, wind down, nor want some help weighing up what to do with your time on the Amalfi Coast.

The Concierge Team has put together a useful Handbook for you to be inspired on how to enhance your stay while on the Amalfi Coast.
Rooms & Suites - Private Retreats. Each of the bright, light-flooded rooms come with everything you could need for a comfortable stay, from L’Occitane and Jo Malone toiletries to Etro sheets to that all-important free Wi-Fi and Apple iPads exclusively for guest's use. and in some rooms, notebook laptops exclusively for guests’ use. Of course, comfort isn’t the sole objective. The value of good design is also appreciated. Clean lines, sleek contemporary furnishings, and lashings of white underscore the rich tones of nature’s palette as visible from the rooms’ sea-view windows and terraces. Casa Angelina is an Adult-only hotel. Children age 12 and over are welcome to stay.
Gourmet Experiences - Fine dining, Amalfi-style - Campania, the Amalfi Coast region, is a place with a rich culinary heritage. Besides being the birthplace of pizza, Campania has also gifted the world with such drooled-over Italian specialties as mozzarella di bufala Campana, capers, sun-ripened vegetables, and juicy Amalfi lemons, as well as all manner of seafood-laden pasta and risotto recipes. The Chef strikes the sweet spot between custom and creativity, honoring the traditional Campanian kitchen while simultaneously striving to keep things fresh, modern, and exciting. One thing is for sure: whether you are enjoying a light lunch at the poolside or a tasting menu at the gloriously-located rooftop restaurant with breathtaking sea views of the Amalfi Coast, no meal at Casa Angelina is ever run-of-the-mill.
