La Minervetta was the first stop on our honeymoon. When we arrived after a long red eye from New York we were mesmerized by the boutique hotels' fabulous design. Its blue and white open air backdrop evokes the breezy Mediterranean vibe, but it's the many details that make La Minervetta so unique. Its walls and book cases are filled with the most diverse array of color-popping eclectic art -- from old black and white photography, to countless piles of art books, to ceramic heads and sculptures. We fell in love with the hotels' main area filled with couches and chairs to relax on (one rainy morning I read a book on Audrey Hepburn & Jackie O), a gem of a kitchen that evokes both kitch and vintage Italian, and a sprawling terrace that overlooks the Mediterranean. The hotel's structure is a feat unto itself--it's built into the side of a cliff, and guests can walk down its private 200 or so steps down to the marina. En route, you'll encounter more sculptures, along with a grassy landing that has a cozy, but but totally glamorous pool (more for lounging, than swimming--but incredible loungy). The complementary breakfasts were also phenomenal-- delicious pastries, meats, fruit, yogurt, and the most melt in your mouth Buffalo mozzarella we've ever tasted. The chef will also make eggs and delicious espresso doppios al lattes (cappuccinos)! While we would definitely consider it an expensive stay, we felt the unique experience was well worth it and would go back again. It's in walking distance to Sorrento's central shopping and historic area. The only thing guests might find frustrating is that there's no real room service or daytime restaurant, so if you're hungry after breakfast you must find food elsewhere. But a totally sexy and unique experience!
