Luxurious Villa Dorata - Enjoy the Sea-View Terrace & Rare Full-Service Private Spa
Description from the manager
As ornate and colorful as its prime Positano setting, Villa Dorata is among our most opulent villas on the Amalfi Coast. With frescoed ceilings, a private wine cellar, and a full-service spa, this luxurious Baroque-style home has to be seen to be believed.
Surrounded by lemon and orange trees, Villa Dorata offers panoramic views of the sea and Positano, one of the Amalfi Coasts most picturesque towns. The magnificent yet traditional exterior hides a wealth of amenities, including a private spa with a Turkish steam bath, tiled pool with waterfall and resistance swimming option, sauna, hot tub, massage room, and more.
Inside the palazzo, the formal living room features gilt-framed paintings and a grand fireplace. Built-in bookshelves add a sense of history to the dining room, decorated with a crystal chandelier and antiques, and red drapes frame the villas sea views. With a stone fireplace and two pizza ovens, the Italian kitchen is every chefs dream; for a memorable experience, take advantage of the complimentary Italian cooking class offered with each stay.
On the first floor, the two lavish master bedrooms feature spacious sitting rooms, private en-suite bathrooms, and access to the sea view terrace. Upstairs, two junior queen suites offer views of the sea, gardens and Positano, with private access to the walled citrus garden. An additionalspare bedroomwith single bedanda private bathroom provides additional space for a teenage child or member of staff.
Known for its exceptional restaurants and pebbled beaches, the town center of Positano is just a 15-minute walk away. Daily continental breakfasts and cook service are included with your stay at Villa Dorata, offering a truly relaxing escape. After all, what could be more appealing after a day exploring the Amalfi Coasts attractions, than a restoring spa session and dinner on the sea-view terrace?

Couple all this with a full staff just waiting to attend to your needs, including freshly squeezed juices from the lemons and oranges grown outside your bedroom windows, homemade marmalades and pastries, the finest wine cellar, and two traditional Italian pizza fornos!
