Where to go on honeymoon in Europe? This is a common question put to us at Select Collection.

Just back from a romantic Italian holiday, a couple of Swedish honeymooners have written to say how pleased they are with our choice of hotels for them  – one on the Amalfi Coast and one on the celebrated isle of Capri.

Santa Caterina is an authentic property with a real Italian feel and personal touch  – perched on a cliffside on the Amalfi Coast. Here you dine high in the evening with stunning views over to Capri. Daytimes you might take a lift down the cliff to a swimming pool by the crystal clear water – enjoy lunch down here, and lazy hours.

Caesar Augustus perches dizzily on a cliffside on Capri, permeated by some of the world’s most spectacular views. All rooms look out over the blue sea and some even jut out over the cliff. The pool and the terraces are all bathed in evening sun, perfect spots to linger and drink a cocktail.

We think these two hotels make a great combination, offering good value for romantic luxury, but it is always interesting to see if our guests have preferences.

Here are our honeymooners comments (translated from Swedish):

“A million thanks for your help.

Caesar Augustus on Capri had a fantastic setting, what a view! We were totally delighted with their restaurant and staff. The rooms were a little smarter at Santa Caterina but if you look at the whole, the ambience, personnel and food had a slight edge at Caesar Augustus.  It’s of course a matter of what one prefers.

Santa Caterina were fantastically kind and upgraded us to a junior suite, since the room we were given (Front Seaview Double Room) was a bit away from the main building – and I have trouble on the stairs. So we got a junior suite in the main building instead. Fantastic!

All the transfers worked perfectly. We had a real dream holiday!”
Note: At Select Collection we love getting feedback. If anything is reported wrong at one of our hotels we contact the hotel to see what can be done. If our guests are happy, we are very happy indeed, and know where to keep sending our precious clients.

The sales adviser who arranged this holiday was our highly experienced Ulrika Thelander - with us and our concept of hand-held luxury travel for 21 years.
