For those looking to pamper themselves during their stay on the Amalfi Coast, there are a number of facilities offering relaxing spa treatments.
For the ultimate indulgence, the Monastero Santa Rosa spa offers both interior and exterior treatment rooms which can be enjoyed either in solitude or in the company of friends or loved ones. Inbetween treatments, guests can relax in the infinity pool, exercise at the alfresco gym, or lounge in one of the spa’s cliff-side cabanas. I promise you, life won’t get much better than this! Whilst the spa is part of the Monastero Santa Rosa hotel, non residents are welcome and a collection of spa days has been put together to ensure that non residents enjoy a day of pure relaxation and pampering in these most elegant of surroundings.
Another option to consider is the Terme Manzi spa on the island of Ischia. The island is a 50-60 minute hydrofoil ride from Sorrento, Naples or Capri and a 2 hour ride from Amalfi. Offering both indoor and outdoor thermal pools, a Turkish bath, sauna, tiepidarium, gym as well as a range of treatments, it again offers holidaymakers the ultimate in relaxation. Entry for the day costs 50 euros with treatment costs on top of this.
