Ethimo for Borgo Santandrea, the charm of the Amalfi coast for the outdoor space



With a constantly evolving hospitality project, deeply rooted in Italian tradition, Borgo Santandrea is a luxury 5-star hotel overlooking the village of Conca dei Marini on the Amalfi coast, recently renovated by architect Rino Gambardella in order to enhance its 1960s atmosphere with a contemporary touch.

Its rooms and suites, restaurants and lounge bar, fitness centre, private beach, striking infinity pools and lush terraced gardens are places where you can discover Made in Italy design and craftsmanship, with constant reminders of the charm of the Amalfi Coast.

A certain sensitivity in interpreting seaside resorts and outdoor life, together with the quality of the materials used to produce each individual outdoor collection, made Ethimo the perfect partner to enhance the outdoor spaces of this hotel thanks to its outdoor collections, such as Grand Life by Christophe Pillet, Rafael by Paola Navone, Kilt by Marcello Ziliani and Swing by Patrick Norguet.

Many of the furnishings were customised to better interpret and convey the iconic charm of the Amalfi Coast, such as the Rafael tables, their tops enamelled in a radiant shade of blue that reflects the colour of the sea, the Elisir dining armchairs, declined in a different and more intense shade of blue, or the cushions of the Essenza seats and lounge beds, in fabrics customised with textures and decorations in a perfect alternation of white and cobalt that brings typical seascapes to mind.

A recurring element in the collections chosen to enhance the various open-air settings, such as the panoramic terraces of the suites and some of the more stunning spaces, is teak, a glowing, warm, natural, fine material (FSC, Forest Stewardship Council certified) that goes well with the interior design as a whole.

The project definitely amplifies those sensations of comfort, welcome and warmth typical of the best of Italian hospitality, made of style and tradition.
