Belmond Hotel Caruso Five-Star In Forbes Travel Guide’s 2020 Star Awards

Forbes Travel Guide is recognized for creating the original concept of Five-Star service, and Belmond Hotel Caruso is the latest addition to its illustrious annual Star Rating list.

February 12, 2020 – Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the world-renowned and only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, today announced its annual Star Rating list, presenting Belmond Hotel Caruso with a new Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hotel award. The hotel will be showcased on ForbesTravelGuide.com.

Located at the highest point of Ravello, Belmond Hotel Caruso combines spectacular vistas and intimate retreats, supported by a skilled and friendly staff creating a warm yet polished environment that has become the signature marker of Belmond Hotel Caruso’s renowned service.

Set in an 11th century palace, the property has retained its historic details in the colonnade, 18th century frescos, and cotto tiles – all updated with the best modern amenities. Its iconic location, breath taking views, and expansive lush garden scape caters to a discerning traveller, and contributes to its positioning as a one of the most desirable and talked about hotels on the Amalfi coast and the whole of Southern Italy.

The Hotel offers 50 rooms and suites, one restaurant and a snack bar by the pool, where traditional Neapolitan and regional Italian dishes are the house speciality. The Arcade Bar and the Sparkling Garden, that specializes in champagne, offer the best of aperitif and delicious canapés on the coast.

The crowning jewel of the property is the majestic infinity pool. Elliptically shaped and overlooking the blue waters and dramatic rocky coastline; here sea, sky and mountains all seem to merge as one.

A stay at the Belmond Hotel Caruso immerses clients into the unique spirit and raw beauty of the Amalfi coast, from first arrival to the final ‘arrivederci’.

“It is an honour and pleasure to receive this award,” says Alfonso Pacifico, General Manager of Belmond Hotel Caruso. “Everyone knows the importance and value of Forbes Travel Guide and we are so proud to be associated with this group. This award is dedicated to my team, whose passion and dedication made it happen, and to all our guests that keep choosing us for their stay on the Coastline.”

“We have been committed to championing genuine Five-Star service for more than 60 years, and this year’s winners, as always, exemplify the very highest standards in hospitality,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide.

“It is difficult to earn a Forbes Travel Guide rating, and all our Star-Rated winners have shown how incredibly deserving they are of their accolades by demonstrating sheer dedication in their passion for service. We congratulate them all.”
