Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria



The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is a prestigious historic hotel. It is in lush gardens overlooking the Bay of Naples in the heart of the Sorrento Peninsula, Italy. The resort is owned by the fifth generation of the Fiorentino family, who established the first hotel in 1834. Roman Emperor Augustus once chose to build a villa in the same beautiful spot. The hotel comprises three 19th-century buildings. Guests can access them from a graceful drive through Mediterranean gardens leading to stunning views of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.

Location

The Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria is located in Sorrento, atop the cliffs with stunning sea views. The lively town bustles around, but the hotel itself rests within romantic citrus groves. There are also beautiful olive groves and gorgeous floral-scented gardens.

Moreover, cobbled streets, picturesque houses, shops, cafes, and restaurants are just moments from the hotel. An elevator travels down the cliff to the small harbor port of Marina Piccola. From here, hotel guests can take sea trips to Positano, Ischia, Naples. They can also go further to the lovely Isle of Capri and the gorgeous Amalfi Coast.

Furthermore, taking the hydrofoil to the ancient sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum beats the train on speed, economy, and scenery. The nearest main airport is Naples International.

Style and Hospitality

Two elegant neoclassical villas and a third smaller building link to form this Grand Dame of Sorrentine hotels. The sweeping drive has lovely Mediterranean gardens and curves round to a stunning seafront vista where guests can enjoy coffee/tea/cocktails on the fine terrace. Besides, Mount Vesuvius dominates the scene across the water and stands out dramatically at sundown.

Interiors are also on the grand scale of a previous age with quantities of shining marble and antiques. There are also glittering chandeliers, frescoes, and paintings. Public rooms include The Reading Room and The Music Room. There is also The Winter Garden with La Belle Epoque décor deceptively hiding a raft of modern amenities. Staff and concierge services are top-notch as expected.

Gourmet Dining

Terrazza Bosquet is the Michelin-starred restaurant here. It is under the inspired direction of chef Antonino Montefusco. Menus are based on re-interpretations of local and traditional Mediterranean dishes. They often incorporate fruits, herbs, and olives from the hotel garden.

Moreover, Amuse bouches, petits fours, and trays of fresh artisanal bread add special touches to the meals. There is also a healthy olive-oil menu and a choice of tasting menus or a la carte. In summer, guests can also dine on the romantic terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples, lit up prettily after dark.

Casual Dining

L'Orangerie has a more laid-back ambiance but still offers fine food and drink menus. Set on the grounds by the pool, this diner is also lovely after dark. It has lights glittering on the collection and illuminating the flower-scented gardens. Classic Italian favorites are also available here, with wood-fired pizzas as the stars.

Cocktails and tapas are other options guests can enjoy at this outdoor restaurant. In addition, the Vittoria Breakfast Room offers a stunning array of breakfast dishes to start the day. Besides, special dietary needs are catered for in all diners.
