A VILLA BY THE SEA IN AMALFI
Borgo Santandrea is the realisation of the passion project of two Italian families with generations of hospitality experience between them. They radically transformed an existing 1960s hotel, an ambitious yet respectful restoration carried out over almost four years in order to create a unique environment where Mid-Century design meets Mediterranean style.
The owners’ ultimate goal was to create an atmosphere in which guests feel they are not staying in a hotel but rather in an iconic Italian villa by the Mediterranean.

MID-CENTURY DESIGN MEETS MEDITERRANEAN STYLE
The artistic and aesthetic style of Borgo Santandrea is evident throughout every detail.
The owners’ private collection of mid-century design pieces is complemented by the finest selection of Italian furniture, lighting, and fabrics. In many cases these have been custom-made for Borgo Santandrea.
Italian craftmanship and mid-century design furniture
The gardens have been designed to create a harmony with the native coastal landscapes, respecting the fascinating Amalfi Coast horticultural history of breath-taking terraces, allowing guests to discover the native plant species of the region.
Accessibility played a critical role in the whole project. The stunning 90m vertical height of Borgo Santandrea provides for exceptional views from every point of the resort. This required equally exceptional infrastructure that starts with 8 elevators, extending from the terrace at the top of the hotel to the private beach at the base of the cliff, ensuring all guests can enjoy every feature of Borgo Santandrea and effortlessly access almost every corner of this vertical heaven.
The restoration was undertaken with an important focus on integrating the most sustainable practices. We have incorporated some of the finest energy saving technologies, adopted state of the art waste management systems, invested in electric vehicles and implemented many plastic reduction initiatives. A lot has been done also to make sure that our gastronomic offerings are largely based from nearby growers and food providers. We are fully aware that we are just at the beginning of the sustainability journey, something we are very passionate about, and are fully committed to ongoing improvements.
AN ECO-SUSTAINABLE RESTORATION
good practices respecting the planet
Ultimately, the core of our ambitious project are the many gifted craftsmen and artists, most of them from the Amalfi Coast, that in line with the local centuries-old traditions have spent years working on site to make Borgo Santandrea a “Made in Italy showcase”.
