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.
