Sitting high on the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast in an ancient fishing village, Casa Angelina has now opened for the season, and is offering several new travel experiences designed for relaxation, romance, cuisine, celebration and wellness. While still delightfully off the beaten path, traveling to Casa Angelina has never been easier for North American guests with new seasonal direct flight service from New York to Naples on United Airlines (launching May 22). As part of its seasonal re-opening, this year Casa Angelina will offer an extensive list of new and exceptional experiences for guests.
About Casa Angelina
Located in Praiano, Italy, Casa Angelina is a quiet retreat from the busy nearby towns of the Amalfi Coast. The minimalist white design of the hotel compliments the blue water of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Fresh from a recent renovation, the privately owned, design-forward hotel features unique spaces including a contemporary art collection housed in Casa Angelina’s lobby. The hotel has 44 rooms in total –– 40 in the main building and four Eudesea Rooms on the beach. The property spoils guests with amenities including Jo Malone toiletries, an on-site spa, access to the hotel’s private boat for excursions to surrounding towns or a romantic dinner on the water, and every level of service luxury travelers expect.
2019 Travel Experiences
CENTER STAGE WITH AN ITALIAN CHEF
For the first time, cooking lessons will be available at Casa Angelina as private or group experiences. Taking place on the partially covered rooftop terrace overlooking striking views of colorful Positano, guests will learn how to make authentic, local dishes from the region, including variations of just-caught fresh squid, fish, and seafood from the adjacent Tyrrhenian Sea.
In addition to the new lessons, Casa Angelina’s Executive Chef, Leopoldo Elefante, will also create private, intimate dining experiences, where he will create and showcase his delectable Italian delicacies. With the guests as his audience and the dramatic Amalfi cliffs and the sparkling sapphire sea as the backdrop, it is the perfect date-night scenario. Exclusively unfolding by candlelight on the rooftop under the star-studded sky –– couples will savor the fresh flavors of local vegetables, feel the texture of homemade pasta, and unintentionally learn Italian with the chef as the professor, as he teaches them the Italian names of every ingredient on their plates. What a special localized experience!!
APERITIVO WITH A JAW-DROPPING VIEW
This season will see the enhancement of the rooftop terrace, including the installation of a new, leading-edge, outdoor Molteni Luxury Stove, which has been crafted and assembled to the chef’s exact specifications. While admiring pristine views of Positano and the Tyrrhenian Sea, guests will have the opportunity to sip on a cocktail from the Aperol Spritz Menu––different spins on the original Aperol Spritz from the hotel’s head bartender––or Casa Angelina’s signature Limoncello Mojito during the hotel’s new Special Edition Rooftop Aperitivo. Guests can mingle and unwind while selecting from a selection of oysters, bruschetta, and pizza slices from the new brick oven, as well as fresh, regional vegetables grown in the hotel’s on-site garden, including eggplant, zucchini, and tomatoes. These views are mesmerizing!!
AMARO PER FAVORE
The hotel is excited to announce their new Liquore Strega (Italian herbal liqueur) full-day experience this upcoming season. Quintessential to the Amalfi Coast and ‘born’ in 1860, the Amaro brand, Liquore Strega’s original factory (Spazio Strega) and now museum is two-hours away from Casa Angelina in the village of Benevento. Guests will take a luxury van to Spazio Strega and experience a private tour, a tasting, and a bottle of Liquore Strega to take home. Before going back to the hotel, guests will be able to grab lunch and walk around the charming village of Benevento. Upon returning to the hotel, guests will be greeted to their own private aperitivo hour with the hotel’s popular Lo Stregone cocktail made with Strega and paired with small bites. What a day!!
SQUID FISHING THE TYRRHENIAN SEA
A nod to the Praiano’s roots as an ancient fishing village, Casa Angelina is offering authentic squid fishing excursions with a local expert fisherman. Taking place at night––the most optimal time to catch squid––guests will be able to sail on a Gozzo Sorrentino (a typical wooden boat from the region) from the Marina di Praia to participate in some of the world’s best squid fishing three miles off the coast. Upon returning to the hotel, guests will be taught to make the area’s traditional “Totani e Patate” (squid and potatoes) with their catch from the excursion. You will love the experience on the Gozzo Sorrentino!!
REJUVENATING FACE MASKS
Following its enhancement last season, Casa Angelina’s Spa will continue to offer new spa experiences and treatments focused on indigenous ingredients and the of-the-moment techniques. For the first time, guests will have the opportunity to make their own custom, organic facemasks. Made with completely organic ingredients and made by hand by guests, spa-goers will be under the instruction of a skilled spa professional to craft a nourishing mask used during their facial treatment and guaranteed to leave a lasting glow. Make it a day and enjoy the many offerings of the spa!!
A PERSONAL PROPOSAL CONCIERGE JUST FOR YOU
This destination is magical. There is no wonder that as many as 35 percent of guests get engaged while staying at Casa Angelina in a given season. Because of this statistic, the hotel will offer a Proposal a la Carte Menu under the guidance of a personal proposal concierge; offering a complete range of services for couples, such as arranging an elegant picnic for two under the stars; a private romantic candlelit dinner; a sunset boat tour with a swim at Li Galli Islands; or a fully-customized experience. What a special place to take that next step with the love of your life!!
Awarded ‘Most Romantic Retreat’ by Small Luxury Hotels, Casa Angelina will be offering a new amenity for honeymooners (or any guest, really). The Honeymoon Escape Portrait allows couples to be able to capture one of the most memorable trips of their life through the lens of one of Casa Angelina’s professional partner photographers. The hotel will arrange a dreamy, once-in-a-lifetime lifestyle photo shoot against a backdrop of Praiano’s majestic cliffs – the perfect way to capture a lifelong memory. These views are worth so much more than just Instagram!!
