It was the closest to an evening on the Amalfi Coast as Sydney can get. Sally Morgan of The Unique Tourism Collection and Annarita Aprea, Director of Sales & Marketing for the idyllic Italian hotel, Casa Angelina, hosted just five members of the media for an intimate dinner at Otto Ristorante on Cowper Wharf at Woolloomooloo.
Over wine and the restaurant’s fresh, Italian cuisine, guests learned about this white gem, perched above the Mediterranean Sea in the quiet and picturesque Campania village of Praiano, which is only a 10-minute drive from Positano and 15 minutes from Amalfi.
The property – which welcomes many Australians to enjoy all the magnificence and splendour of the Amalfi Coast and its surrounds during the beautiful European spring and summer months – operates seasonally and children from 12 years of age are welcome to visit.
As a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Casa Angelina provides the timeless elegance of style and service. Accommodation includes 39 luxurious rooms and suites, as well as 4 exclusive Eaudesea rooms, almost at sea level.
The gourmet restaurant, Un Piano nel Cielo, showcases seasonal, locally sourced Mediterranean cuisine, while the poolside dining offers easy, healthy salads, pasta and other light dishes.
Guests can dip into the heated indoor or outdoor pools and bask in the summer sun on the poolside deck.
The spa offers a comprehensive range of beauty and wellness treatments, and guests can also wander down to the local beach for a drink from the seaside bar or head out on a trip on one of Casa Angelina’s private boats.
The style of the hotel is distinctly contemporary and sleek, with a bright collection of modern art creating the feel of a private home. The whiter-than-white exterior and interiors come from a cocktail of 15 different shades of white, applied with exacting precision by the hotel’s painter, Peppe, who will often conduct daily touch-ups. This neutral interior allows the views to be the focus, from the sea to Capri and the town of Positano.
