Amalfi Coast

Dorata Amalfi Coast


Villa Dorata, a super-luxury private palazzo perched 94 steps above the glorious Mediterranean and the light of Positano.

Live like royalty in a villa decorated in high Baroque style—amidst lush, tasseled draperies; meticulously selected works of art; ornate chandeliers; exquisite frescoed ceilings; and vaulted alcoves. The exterior is an oasis of verdant gardens, fragrant citrus groves, and picturesque outdoor terraces with breathtaking panoramic ocean and village views.

The high Baroque architectural details evident throughout the villa are highlighted by rich jewel-tone color scheme, gilt-framed works of art, and romantic terraces. There are sumptuously soft sofas, crystal chandeliers, lavish draperies, inlaid ceilings, and exquisite alcoves that make a stay at villa Dorata a life-long memory. Outside, Eden-like gardens and surrounding groves make lounging and dining al fresco as privileged an experience as life within. Couple all this with a full staff just waiting to attend to your needs, including freshly squeezed juices from the lemons and oranges grown outside your bedroom windows, homemade marmalades and pastries, the finest wine cellar, and two traditional Italian pizza fornos!

John D. • June 2017

Spectacular villa with stunning views. My family, girlfriend and I spent the week here and couldn't be happier. It was the first time my parents travelled abroad and still talk about the villa and Positano every day. I even got engaged while I was there :) For the 7 of us the size of the villa was perfect and quickly felt like home. The staff were phenomenal and felt like family.

Joanna • July 2016

Dorata was over the top both figuratively and literally. Our concierge, Chiara, was very helpful with all the nitty gritty details of our van rentals, day to day travel tips and being the go-to regional expert for any questions we may have had. Enzo, our chef, catered to our palates and we were never disappointed in the variety and quality of the meals he prepared. Anna, our housekeeper, was a gem when it came to keeping on top of our laundry and our rooms. What a 5 star team and always with a smile on their faces. They made it a truly memorable week.

Gilberto A. • May 2016

Chiara: Thank you so much for being so helpful, you always have a smile of your face and it always warmed my day. Thank you for always making the cappuccinos in the morning, they are truly the best.
Enzo:you are the best Chief in the universe! Everyday I was exited for the meals, everything you made was extrodinary. I wish you could come home with our family and cook for us.
Anna Maria: you are such a hard worker, you always wear a smile on your face and I loved the hugs you gave me.
I hope I can see you all again…

Mary Jean O. • May 2016

“Thank you” is certainly not enough of a phrase to describe my gratitude for you all this week. In addition to Positano’s beauty and the Villa Dorata’s grandeur, you made this place even more wonderful. Your kindness, warmth and hospitality truly made my experience meaningful and memorable. I will be forever grateful for my time here and with you and hope that this is not a goodbye but instead a ‘see you later!

p.s. I will also never see food the same way again. Thanks for bringing your skills and love to our meals, Enzo!
