Le Sirenuse translates roughly as “dwelling of sirens,” a suitable name for one of the world’s most magical hotels. The meticulously decorated 18th-century residence, set high on the crags of the Amalfi Coast, is now run by Carla and Antonio Sersale, the charming and well-connected descendants of patriarch Franco Sersale. Inside, museum-worthy family heirlooms are offset by Moorish elements like domed ceilings and hand-painted ceramics, while each of the elegant guest rooms — all with distinct accents, some with postcard-perfect views of the Tyrrhenian Sea — complement a series of charmingly eclectic common areas that spill out onto open-air terraces surrounded by climbing vines and fragrant flowers, one of which features a pool with beautiful mosaic murals.
All 58 rooms and suites are decorated with a harmonious mix of contemporary and vintage furnishings, some of them valuable antiques. Sea View Rooms are the smallest, at 258 square feet, but they have cozy balconies with lovely panoramas. Marble bathrooms are stocked with Frette towels and robes and luxurious “Eau d’Italie” products, created by the Sersale family specifically for Le Sirenuse.
The hotel’s main restaurant is the Michelin-starred La Sponda, which serves locally sourced Neapolitan cuisine created by chef Gennaro Russo. Fresh shellfish is the calling card at the candlelit Champagne Bar & Grill, while the lemon-tree-scented Pool Bar and Restaurant serves light regional fare at lunchtime. A recent addition, Franco’s Bar, named in honor of Franco Sersale, is the place to go for craft cocktails.
Nestled in the cliffs of southern Italy’s famous Amalfi Coast, Le Sirenuse is just over an hour away from Naples and historic sites like Pompeii. The hotel can arrange transfers from Naples-Capodichino International Airport or from the Naples central train station.
How to Get There
From checking in to checking out, the whole hotel experience were amazing. The front desk we great and they upgraded us to a nicer room with a nice view.
We were travelling across Europe and i could say that this hotel made me fell in love with Positano more than the others.
Very classy hotel and attention to details. One of the most beautiful hotels we have stayed in.
Great spread of breakfast too!
This place is absolutely exceptional, and we had a fantastic 5 days here in April. Everything about the place is perfect - it's rich in art & culture, with beautiful antiques on all the walls.
Our room balcony on the top floor opened up to the most beautiful ocean view. Positano is insanely busy these days but this hotel feels very quiet and serene in spite of all the madness outside. The hotel pool is heated year round - you can relax with a cocktail or swim early in the morning before hitting the well equipped gym in the basement.
The food in the restaurant and the service also exceptional - breakfast was included in our stay - great selection of items on the buffet, and a choice of eggs and extras on the menu (also included). The hotel staff do not put any pressure on you to eat breakfast by a certain time, which is nice, we strolled in and were welcomed at gone 10am.
Dinner is another level all together - fresh and well put together menu, we sat happily for over 2 hours in the candle lit dining room happily tucking into a feast of fish, pasta & red wine.
The service and kindness of the hotel staff here really do make Le Sirenuse what it is, they are attentive and chatty, yet leave you in peace to enjoy your surroundings. Because the hotel is pretty small, they tend to remember your name and room number each morning - it was an absolute pleasure to stay here, and we hope to return!
This hotel is absolutely beautiful. Staff and service outstanding. Immaculate, quite, housekeeping excellent. The views are breathtaking. Breakfast assortment fresh and plentiful. Every staff member and servers that we interacted with were gracious and helpful. We totally enjoyed Pepe every morning as our breakfast server.
Le Sirenuse is a lovely luxury hotel in a spectacularly beautiful setting. The views from each room are breathtaking and the service is excellent. We would like to mention both Leonardo and Agatha in particular. Without their hospitality, our visit would not have been as pleasant. Their signature restaurant, La Sponda, is worth the splurge and the views at night, with the lights of Positano in the background, are other worldly. Be prepared, this location is not for those on a budget!
An old world hotel with a charm that’s rare, this hotel is a once in a lifetime experience in a location like none other. Located at the center of the village of Positano, 70 mt above the sea, this place offers an unbeatable oasis of peace and tranquility with a breathtaking view. The service is exceptional, like the town itself an unforgettable experience. Take advantage of the hotel experiences and explore the town as much as you can.
