With its beautiful gardens overlooking the sea, this Ravello wedding destination offers an amazing background for your Ravello wedding

Belmond Hotel Caruso

Located at the highest point of Ravello, the Belmond Hotel Caruso is one of the most suggestive hotels de charme on the Amalfi Coast, hosting destination weddings of sophisticated couples from all over the world every year. This wedding venue stands on the ruins of the ancient Palazzo D’Afflitto, built by a Roman patrician family who settled in Ravello around the 11th century. Abandoned until the mid-16th century after the attack of the Pisans, it was restored to its splendor and transformed into a hotel in 1893 by Pantaleone Caruso, when the village became a favorite destination for young European intellectuals embarking on the “Grand Tour”, a long journey to discover the classical culture and themselves.

The hotel features architectural elements and sculptures from Roman, Byzantine and medieval times alongside more modern artworks that make the place a sort of museum. The great attraction of this place, however, is not in the works of man that decorate the luxurious interiors, but in the beauties of nature that surround it. This restored mansion boasts 350 mq of lush gardens with rose, lemon grooves and olive trees overlooking the spectacular sea and mountain views.

Why this wedding venue is perfect for a Ravello bride

Suspended between sky and ocean, the Belmond Hotel Caruso offers a true and inimitable luxury experience made in Italy. Having a wedding here means to experience the Amalfi Coast at 360°, savoring the exquisite Mediterranean atmosphere at every moment and enjoying the proverbial welcome of the Italian people.

This Ravello wedding location offers landscapes of evocative beauty, a particularly refined service and unique facilities such as the gourmet restaurant, the infinity pool on the rooftop, the bloomy park and the spa equipped with a wide range of treatments.

Symbolic ceremony

The beautiful panoramic gardens are the perfect background for an unforgettable Amalfi Coast wedding. The symbolic ceremony at sunset takes place on one of the two main terraces, a lawn bordered by flowering hedges and trees. While the sky is tinged with pastel colors, guests flow into the place full of emotions. The space can accommodate up to 180 people and it is possible to brighten the ritual with soft live music. On the wedding day, the entire outdoor area is for the exclusive use of the couple in order to ensure maximum intimacy and privacy to the event.

Civil Ceremony and Catholic Ceremony

If you dream of having a legally binding wedding in Italy, you can get married in the town hall of Ravello, easily reachable by feet from the Belmond Hotel Caruso. The municipality offers several locations for your civil ceremony: the gorgeous rooms of the town hall, the courtyard in the heart of Ravello or the wonderful Princess Gardens, if available.

As for the Catholic Christian ceremony, the Church of San Giovanni del Toro, located right in front of the entrance to the Caruso, is perfect! You just have to cross the square to reach the medieval church characterized by an entrance with columns in different styles, and the interiors in soft pink.

Wedding dinner

The wedding dinner is hosted in the garden of the olive trees or, for very large events, in the Wagner Garden, from around 8 pm to 10 pm, under a sky of stars. From here you can enjoy the jawdropping view of the Gulf of Salerno: the coast that slowly lights up is an amazing show to see!

Chef Mimmo Di Raffaele will delight in creating a classy dining experience for you. Innovator of local cuisine, he is known for his unmistakable style that combines tradition and creativity.

The wedding menus are sophisticated and customizable: if you have special dietary needs, do not hesitate to communicate them to your wedding planner and receive alternative menu that take into account allergies, diabetes, your lifestyle, philosophy or religion.

Cake Cutting

In Ravello there is a ban on music after 11 pm. For this reason, if you want to continue your wedding party until late we recommend that you have the cake cutting and the after dinner in the pool area: the change of location will be a pleasant surprise for your guests and will allow you to have a dj over the time limit, but always with an eye to the volumes due to the city regulation!

The spectacular infinity pool is an architectural masterpiece and gives the impression of being suspended in the clouds. A corner of paradise to end your big day in style!

Accommodation

This luxury Amalfi Coast hotel has 50 rooms. All offer an incomparable panorama, with balconies overlooking the sea or with a private garden. Each room and suite of this ancient building is furnished with Neapolitan-style period furniture and four-poster beds. Have fun discovering all the extraordinary historical details during your stay!

In addition to magnificent rooms, guests enjoy the heated infinity pool, a welcoming wellness center and a gourmet restaurant with terrace. The courtesy shuttle takes you to visit Amalfi and Positano, and you can easily reach even more distant destinations such as Pompeii or Capri. In addition, thanks to the daily mini cruise offered by the venue, you can explore the Amalfi Coast from a new perspective.

Advices from our wedding planner

Ultimately, the Belmond Hotel Caruso is an Amalfi Coast wedding venue appreciated by Ravello brides for its breathtaking views, the enchanting gardens and the Italian lifestyle. Here are some tips from our wedding planner to get the most out of your wedding or elopement at Belmond Hotel Caruso!

Signature ice cream

The gentle tinkling of the Belmond vintage ice cream cart is the first sound that you hear walking in Piazza S. Giovanni del Toro. A sweet welcome to immediately savor the goodness of the place. Share this moment of lightheartedness with your guests: arrange an ice cream station at the entrance on the wedding day, and select one tasted, one for the groom and one for the bride. It will not be easy to choose between the different options, all artisanal: from the classic hazelnut, but revisited in a gourmand and more modern way, to the very traditional “ricotta cheese and pear”!

Pre wedding activity

A heart-shaped pizza cooked in a wood oven, a picnic in the nature, an engagement session in the nearby Villa Cimbrone: whatever your preference is, I highly recommend to add an extra activity to your wedding weekend, just for you and your partner. Doing something special on your last day as fiancee will make the whole honeymoon unforgettable.
