Is There A Four Seasons On The Amalfi Coast: Capri Or Sorrento?

Four Seasons is one of the most luxurious hotel brands in the world, and it is natural to ask the question, is there a Four Seasons on the Amalfi Coast: Capri Or Sorrento? After all, there’s a Four Seasons in Milan and in Florence (although there is no Four Seasons in Venice), so surely there must be a Four Seasons on this ultra-luxury coastline or at its gateway in Naples?? If there were, it would surely be one of the best Four Seasons in Europe.

If Capri and Sorrento are both magical places. Capri is a rocky island and Sorrento is a luxurious seaside town.

Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are consistently one of the best hotels in that city or resort. This means that most Four Seasons hotel room rates generally start at $500 – $1000 USD per night and because they don’t have a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done. But you can get discounts at Four Seasons hotels and benefit from special rewards at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our luxury travel concierge.

Is There A Four Seasons On The Amalfi Coast: Capri Or Sorrento?

The answer is no. There is not a Four Seasons anywhere on the Amalfi Coastline. There is no Four Seasons hidden away in the smaller towns of Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Maiori, Tramonti, Minori, Ravello, Scala, Atrani, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Praiano, or Positano. There is no Four Seasons hotel on the islands of Procida and Ischia either.

Capri, Sorrento, and Naples are home to many luxury hotels but no Four Seasons hotels, which is a real shame. Although they are not a cheap brand of hotel to stay in, their reliably expensive room rates mean that their rooms are reliably excellent and a Four Seasons hotel would be a blissfully peaceful retreat on this sunny coastline.

Where Should I Stay?

We love the Capri palace on Capri. Stroll up a windy path, past water features, and underneath the main pool. Brush past the tropical palms and bougainvillaea that overhang, and you reach the vaulted foyer that is the Capri Palace. The decor is a million shades of dreamy cream and complemented by fantastic and unusual artwork. The staff are welcoming and will be expecting you. They have been working there for many years and there is nothing relating to your stay they don’t know or can’t help you with.

Each room is different and above base level most are large and stylish, replicating the cream tones of the lobby. Most have large canopied beds and the bathrooms are beautifully finished although they can be on the small side. Rooms either have a balcony looking out over the pool and in the distance, the island of Ischia, or face the mountain and offer a patio or my favorite, a private pool.

By Capri standards the pool is large and there are certainly plenty of loungers in their beautifully tended tropical garden. Wait for the nice pool man who will make up for you. The Spa is meant to be superb – Liz Hurley comes here for their effective leg treatments which I think says it all.

At night Capri evolves into one of the most romantic places on the planet, and the same is true of the Capri Palace. At night the entire hotel seems to be candlelit. Lanterns adorn every corner and shelf and the entire world seems to be bathed in a subtle glow.

Beware, the base rooms are just that, more basic than the rest. These are not of a Four Seasons level of luxury so make sure you check the room’s size before you book.
