Built on the cliffs directly above the sea, this historic hotel was the first in Italy's resort town of Sorrento to boast stunning views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The luxury Grand Hotel Riviera continues to pamper guests today with its lovely private beach, pool, Mediterranean cuisine, and elegant rooms...all the elements selective travellers need for an unforgettable stay.
During its more than 50 years of history, the Grand Hotel Riviera hosted a number of illustrious guests and celebrities at the end of the 1900's, when it was the only hotel in Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples and offering direct access to a private beach.
The guest rooms are small jewels, bright and decorated in a welcoming Mediterranean style. Guest can choose from a variety of room types, from economy to standard with a view of the garden, or rooms with a sea view, including the Junior Suite and the luxurious Suite Vesuvio.
The terraces overlooking the sea are the perfect spot for breathtaking views. Here guests enjoy breakfast against the backdrop of Mount Vesuvius, lunch facing the sea, or romantic dinners with the twinkling lights of the coast in the distance.
The flavors of the Mediterranean dominate all the dishes, from the buffet breakfast featuring local sweets, to the restaurant menu, which includes some of the best traditional recipes and Mediterranean favorites.
Don't miss the chance to sip a sunset cocktail on the terrace of the American Bar, with the spectacular Mediterranean Sea stretched out before you!
One of the most luxurious touches of this historic hotel is its private beach in Sorrento. No need to walk...just take the elevator directly down to the water's edge!
If you want to relax on the beach during your vacation in Sorrento, there is nothing better than the private beach at Grand Hotel Riviera, which provides guests with loungers, umbrellas, beach towels, and snorkling equipment...guests can also rent a boat for a trip along the Sorrentine coast.
Guests can also opt for a relaxing afternoon on the large terrace with its panoramic pool, featuring a hot tub and small children's pool.

It would be hard to find a better location than that of Grand Hotel Riviera, right above the sea but practically in the center of Sorrento. The charming lanes of the historic center and the port with ferries for day trips to the islands in the Bay of Naples are just steps away. Sorrento is the ideal base for visiting the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii.
