Dream of getting married or honeymooning in Italy? I’m sharing two stunning options with you today – perfect for a destination wedding, dreamy honeymoon or an ultra romantic anniversary trip! Both of these iconic hotels are members of the Orient-Express Collection.
Let’s start with the Hotel Caruso in Ravello, Italy. If you’ve been reading GWS for some time, you likely recognize this hotel that Jason + I stayed at last year on our European vacation. It was one of the most breathtaking hotels we’ve stayed at, having your wedding here would be pretty AMAZE! Hotel Caruso is perched high upon a cliff that overlooks the Amalfi Coast. The property offers 360 degrees of picturesque views, from the beautiful coast to the charming hillside village and lemon farms. It’s fairytale setting with the dreamy surroundings will ensure you + your guests have a simply magical wedding experience.
If you prefer your wedding be a private event, the Hotel Caruso can be hired for exclusive use with their Ultimate Take Over. Imagine having this entire hotel all to yourself, accommodating your guests in sublime luxury and entertaining them as if in your own private Italian villa!
To get a better idea what a wedding at Hotel Caruso would be like, check out this lovely wedding film (filmed by the bride!).
And if you are thinking honeymoon or anniversary trip, two words – infinity pool! Just wow… They also have their Hotel Caruso Just the Two of Us package, which would be perfect for these occasions. The Two of Us package includes:
- two-day stay in a junior suite with sea view and balcony
- Champagne, flowers and fresh fruit on arrival
- rose petals on your bed in the evening
- dinner for two by candlelight in the Belvedere Restaurant
- lunch at the poolside restaurant (they have a pizza oven at this restaurant!)
- a massage for two
Now, up the coast a bit to the Ligurian Riviera…
Set on a verdant hillside overlooking the picture-perfect harbour of Portofino, with its luxury yachts bobbing at anchor, Hotel Splendido is one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats. A wedding in Portofino means a day set against a breathtaking backdrop of beautiful countryside, flowers and the dazzling Mediterranean. Combine this with the unique cuisine and personalized service of the hotel and you have a simply unforgettable occasion!
Breathtaking views, elegant surroundings and the warmth of traditional Italy – where better to relax and enjoy each other’s company? The Hotel Splendido Romantic Escape would be so perfect for your honeymoon or anniversary trip. The Romantic Escape includes:
- three nights in a room with a sea view (and balcony!)
