New Ravello Hotel Offers Special DOI Deal!
I attended an event two weeks ago at the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C. sponsored by Orient- Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises. The company brought its top sales and marketing people from around the world to tell travel agents and the press about their latest offerings. I had the pleasure of meeting the delightful Andrea Filippi, regional director of sales & marketing for the group's Italian hotels, including Hotel Cipriani (Venice), Palazzo Venramin (Venice), Hotel Splendido (Portofino) and Villa San Michele (Florence).
Most importantly, he introduced me to the newest property in the group -- the renovated Hotel Caruso in Ravello, overlooking the Amalfi Coast -- which had just opened two days before! And best of all, he made an on-the-spot offer of a special deal for any Dream of Italy readers who would like to stay there!
From now until the hotel closes for the season in early November, mention Dream of Italy and receive a 4th night free when you spend three nights at the hotel! Filippi emphasizes you can receive this deal whether you book through your travel agent or through the hotel directly. He will inform his staff of this offer immediately. The offer is based on room rack rates and cannot be combined with any other special deal.
Next door to the Palazzo Sasso and sitting on a cliff above the sea, Hotel Caruso has a total of 54 rooms, including eight suites, 28 junior suites and 18 double rooms. More than 90% of the rooms have sea views and 15 rooms have private gardens. The hotel's open- air restaurant, The Belvedere, has a 360-degree view of the Amalfi Coast. Among the Caruso's luxurious amenities -- an infinity pool, gym and spa. Room rates begin at 420 euros per night, including breakfast.
