The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 11% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 29/09/2019, leaving from London Luton, two people may book a three-night stay in a Sea View room with balcony (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £399 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £448 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 11%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 14/03/2019.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

A lavish southern Italy stay at a historically glamorous hotel with an outdoor pool near the centre of Amalfi – includes breakfast, a town centre shuttle, and all travel

For a luxurious set-up overlooking what is regarded as Europe's most beautiful coastline, this grand hotel has living la dolce vita down to a fine art. Escape to the Italian coast and spend days wandering around sun-filled piazzas and lazing on bigou beaches, before returning to the opulent Grand Hotel Excelsior. Built in 1962 by Gaetano Amendola (a former mayor of Amalfi), the hotel has played host to many illustrious guests over the years, including musicians, politicians, and film stars.

Nowadays, it enchants a whole new generation of visitors with a flawless service, old-world decor, and sweeping sea views. Carved into a hillside, the property flaunts a luxe vibe throughout, but it is most apparent in the thoughtfully furnished guest rooms and suites. Elsewhere, you’ll find two wonderful dining spots for delicious Mediterranean cuisine, an outdoor pool lined with sun loungers for day-long bronzing, and a large terrace for relaxing with a few glasses of fine wine. But perhaps the real highlight is the Mare Club, the hotel’s private beach that’s accessed by a daily bus shuttle service.

Good to know

Please note there is a local tax of €3 per person, per night to be paid directly to the hotel on checkout.

Parking is available for guests.

The outdoor pool is open seasonally, from May until the middle of October. 

The private beach is also open seasonally from the middle of June until the middle of September and use of it incurs an additional charge.

Decorated in a classic style, guestrooms offer thoughtful furnishings, ample modern must-haves, and plenty of living space. Overlooking the lemon groves, the Sea View rooms also have a French balcony for relaxed daytime drinks or cosy candlelit evenings.

Gourmet-lovers can savour exquisite Mediterranean cuisine at two unique dining spots: the Excelsior Restaurant overlooking the sea and the quaint Grill Garden set in a natural cave (open seasonally from June until the end of September). Expect a wealth of creative dishes, all of which are made with fresh, seasonal, locally sourced, and home-grown ingredients. For all-day drinks and snacks, the hotel has a stylish bar.


Overlooking the glistening coastline, you’ll be just five kilometres from the centre of Amalfi – the town in Italy’s Campania region that’s most famous for its glorious history as a maritime republic. Must-dos include strolling along the promenade to admire the water’s edge, watching the colourful boats bobbing away in the marina, and spending time in the little pavement cafes and elegant boutiques just off Piazza del Duomo.

Further not-to-be-missed highlights include the Museo della Carta (Paper Museum), the Duomo di Sant' Andrea and Cloister of Paradise, and the Valley of the Mills. Should time allow, hop on a ferry or hydrofoil to Salerno, Positano, or Capri or take a guided excursion to the famous archaeological sites in Pompeii, Naples, or Herculaneum.
