Aussies are ready to splurge at Italy’s Casa Angelina this summer

One of the Amalfi Coast's boutique hotspots has opened its doors for the 2024 European summer, with many Aussies ready to check-in, writes MATT LENNON.

Italy’s Amalfi Coast is being singled out as an ideal playground by discerning Australian travellers looking to splurge and indulge on a European holiday.

In 2023, the country soared to the top of the rankings as the most popular European destination for Australians, with nearly 312,000 getting their passports stamped last year.

The figure was a 19% jump on the same period a year earlier, with Italy as a whole closing in 11th place as the most popular hotspot for Australians globally.

More specifically, Aussies are fanning out across a wider cross-section of Italian cities, with Praiano particularly popular as one of the less crowded and more authentic enclaves along the Italian coastline.

No longer a well-kept secret, more Australians are pinpointing late Oct and early Nov as an ideal time to visit the Amalfi Coast to take advantage of more suitable “late-summer” temperatures.

Casa Angelina Director of Sales & Marketing, Annarita Aprea, told Travel Daily the ultra-luxe Amalfi Coast property – represented in Australia by The Unique Tourism Collection – was seeing a strong trend towards splurging by visiting Australian guests.

“The Australia resurgence of travel has brought with it a love of their finer things in life and they are keen on treating themselves with room upgrades, and other top holiday indulgences including fine dining, massages and spa treatments,” Aprea said.

“We expect that the average length of stay for Australian guests will remain consistent at around five nights, re-affirming the trend we have observed in the pre-pandemic years.”

The boutique property has just opened its doors for the European summer and is seeing Aussies being quite picky about desired room types, especially its new Vermarine Suite.

“The new-born Vermarine Suite, with its nature-inspired colour palette and sleek design by Paola Lenti, its refreshing and softly spoken elegance, alongside an airy indoor open space, unobstructed sea views and very generous outdoor space, also ideal for in-room fine dining experiences, is attracting so many of our millennial Australian couples choosing to stay with us to celebrate life special moments,” Aprea added.

Casa Angelina is also boosting its appeal with Australians by extending its operating season into this new sub-peak of Nov.

Travellers can secure a variety of exclusive perks at Casa Angelina for the upcoming summer, including room upgrades and exclusive amenities, with the property not only Virtuoso Preferred but also a member of Leading Hotels of the World.
