Located just an hour’s drive from Rome, the resort promises results within a week.

Monastero Santa Rosa, Amalfi Coast

Perched on a cliff off the Amalfi Coast, this spa was a Dominican monastery in the 17th century. The once spartan cells have now been transformed into 20 luxurious rooms and suites, some of which come with spacious terraces and enticing sea views. The property surrounding the hotel has four levels of generously laid-out flower beds and herbal plants, relaxing lounge chairs and canopied daybeds. The outdoor infinity pool is large and rather dazzling, great for that rejuvenating early morning swim. It is a paradise with a rich history.

Eden Reserve Hotel & Villas, Lake Garda

Eden Reserve is a sleek boutique hotel and wellness oasis designed by Matteo Thun. Take a map and explore numerous hiking and biking trails, book a massage or facial treatment or take a dip in the ice bath – great for circulation, as is a swim in the spacious outdoor pool with power jets, overlooking Lake Garda. Feast on upscale Italian cuisine and stop for a nightcap at the snug Terrazza Bar and Lounge on your way up to bed.
