Hotel Santa Caterina, over a century of history
The history of this special resort is as impressive as its surroundings. In 1880, Giuseppe Gambardella constructed the original structure. Crescenzo Gambardella, his son, redesigned the property in 1904, creating the original six guestrooms. Two generations of Gambardellas have improved the hotel, bringing the resort to its present 66 guestrooms and suites.
Today, Crescenzo's daughters, Giusi and Ninni Gambardella, assisted by their children Crescenzo Gargano, Alessandro e Beatrice Camera, directly manage the day-to-day operations of the hotel and take personal interest in the comfort and enjoyment of the resort guests.
Located on the famous Amalfi drive, a few minutes from the famous town of Amalfi, the Santa Caterina enjoys a panoramic coastal setting of incomparable beauty. The hotel sits at the summit of an extensive property, which begins along the Amalfi drive and tumbles down to the water in a series of landscaped natural terraces.
Two elevators and scenic path transport guests past citrus groves and lush gardens to the seaside level, which includes a sea-water swimming pool, sunbathing decks, gym, café/bar and open-air restaurant.
