Set into a rocky cliff overlooking the Gulf of Naples and surrounded by lush, centuries old gardens, the distinguished Grand Hotel Ambasciatori certainly has the wow factor. Dripping in traditional Italian opulence, it’s full of cool tiles, high ceilings and refined finishes.

So expect sophistication around every corner, with subtle modern comforts.

The grounds are equally as beautiful as the building. The palm-lined pool glows like a turquoise gemstone. The ornamental gardens offer a slice of perfect paradise. The private bathing jetty, lined with chic loungers and parasols stretches into the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Beyond the tranquillity of the hotel, you’ll find the lively town of Sorrento. The main plaza is only a short stroll away and offers an array of local bars and restaurants.

Tripadvisor review Jan 07 2023
This was a nostalgic stay for me as I stayed at the Grand Hotel Ambaciatori when I was a young boy, so in many ways it was a trip back in time. Sometimes we are blessed to return to a great place...
