Hotel Santa Caterina has been, and still is, a private home by the sea used by generations of guests. Over the last century, from the Grand Tour through to modern day travel, the hotel has been considered the much acclaimed ‘home of hospitality’ on the Amalfi Coast. A place where the world has fallen in love with its Dolce Vita.
A FAMILY STORY
In 1904, thanks to the efforts of his wife and son Crescenzo, Dr. Giuseppe Gambardella opened the doors of Hotel Santa Caterina with just six rooms.
His first experience as a hotelier dates to 1870 when his private family home was transformed into a small hotel, the first Sainte Catherine, located a short distance from the current Santa Caterina.
Two generations of Gambardella have continued the works of expansion and refurbishment of the entire property, which now offers a selection of 72 rooms and suites.
Today, Crescenzo’s daughters, Giusi and Ninni Gambardella, assisted by their children Crescenzo Gargano and Alessandro and Beatrice Camera, directly manage the day-to- day operations of the hotel and take a personal interest in the comfort and enjoyment of the resort guests.
