PAST & PRESENT : From Factory to Fabulous!

Can you believe that this cement factory near Sorrento is now a stunning 4* resort hotel?



Even here - on a website dedicated to properties with a past - the astonishing transformation of this former industrial site stands out. It is hard to imagine a greater contrast to mining and the making of cement than the luxury resort hotel which has replaced it. Nevertheless, locals - some 200 of whom worked there at one point - will see a familiar outline in this reincarnation, and that's because the local authority stipulated that the new complex must preserve the historic image of the former factory with an architectural structure close to that of the old industrial site. In addition, they insisted that it should not have more volume than before, and that it must use local product.

Respect for the past isn't unusual around here - even when it concerns the development of a site which was vacated in 1974, and left abandoned for the next 25 years. Close by, and carefully safeguarded, are the remains of an ancient city called Stabiae, destroyed when Vesuvius erupted in 79AD, and unearthed by archaeologists in 1749. Indications are that it was a popular resort, where wealthy Romans built luxury villas.

Creating the Towers Hotel (formerly the Crowne Plaza) Stabiae Sorrento Coast involved combining new-build with the architectural enhancement of the existing structures, as well as consolidating the rock wall behind the hotel, constructing a breakwater reef to protect its seafront, widening the main road - SS Sorrentina 145 - near the hotel entrance, and planting new Mediterranean scrub to integrate the building with the natural landscape.

The result? A structure which celebrates the rebirth of this now-scenic site with its breathtaking views across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. A modern, luxury hotel in bold, minimalist style with an inviting infinity pool, a private beach, a private pier and a superb spa. See for yourself!
