Built in 1808 as the summer residence of Gioacchino Murat — Napoleon’s brother-in-law and King of Naples — the hotel’s posh pedigree was enhanced further by the subsequent owners, the Attanasio family, whose matriarch Carmela created the spectacular gardens in which the palace is now set. The 31 rooms are fashioned in traditional Positano style, with terra-cotta tiled floors, plasterwork scrolls and hand-painted headboards. Some rooms look onto the gardens while others have sea views. Linger in the courtyard or restaurant, both shaded and scented by the resident citrus trees.
In the Area
Walk off all that delicious Italian fare with a trek along Il Sentiero degli Dei (“God’s Highway”), a panoramic path above the Amalfi Coast that links the hilltop town of Agerola with Nocelle, on the slopes of Monte Peruso. (The hotel can help arrange tours.) Admire the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, with its opulent interiors and prime position overlooking the sea, then head to the beach itself for spaghetti vongole at Chez Black, one of Danny de Vito’s favorites.
How to Get There
I cannot overstate how magnificent Hotel Palazzo Murat is. I recently returned from a stay of 3 nights end/October early/November. It is honestly one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve stayed in. It is so well situated in Positano, right in the middle of access to everything yet buffered away from the street. Every single view is more beautiful than the next. My room had gorgeous tiles on the floors, the bathroom was spacious and modern with an elegant old world Italian aesthetic. Plush duvets on the crispy embroidered linens. Double doors to a private terrace.
The breakfast was among the best I’ve had in any Italian hotel. The staff were incredibly polite, helpful and went out of their way to welcome you.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this luxe boutique hotel to anyone planning a visit in Positano, and I would certainly go back.
As I was visiting Positano in June 2019, we had a relaxing afternoon at Hotel Palazzo Murat. Inside is nicely decorated with old İtalian tiles, garden is beautiful with lush green and different plants and flowers. A coctail or Aperol is a must while relaxing under trees. Even more nicer is to have lunch at the same names restaurant next to Hotel. As we did not stay in this beautiful surrounding, I can not comment on the rooms. But judging the interior,tha garden, the manner of the personnel , this is the place to stay in Positano..
We decided to eat here to finish our amazing stay in Positano. The service was excellent, from the minute we walked in till we left, all staff were attentive. The food is exceptional and they have a wine list to suit all tastes. We totally enjoyed our dining experience here and can see why it gained a Michelin Star this year, the food was delicious and worth the cost.
