5-Star X-Factors

The views and the feeling of being in a cherished, aristocratic family home

Le Sirenuse

Le Sirenuse holds prime position on the steep incline of one of the world’s most peachy coastal towns: Positano on Italy's Amalfi Coast

With sparkling sea views, fabulous Michelin-starred cuisine and beautiful suites, Le Sirenuse is the perfect luxury 5-star hotel to stay in, while you enjoy all the rich pickings from this staggeringly scenic coastline.

For many this iconoclastic luxury hotel, is simply and luxuriantly synonymous with Positano. It holds true everything princely about this sparkling Amalfi coastal hotspot, and its fabulous refurbishment is testament to the ongoing passion of its aristocratic owners, the Sersale family.

John Steinbeck, who visited in 1953, wrote 'Positano bites deep. It's a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you are gone.' We know exactly what he means and there is a similar feel to Le Sirenuse, our absolute favourite Positano hotel.

Passionate owners

The secret of Le Sirenuse lies in its passionate owners. It opened in 1951 when 4 Neopolitan siblings converted their summer home into the hotel. Marchesi Aldo, Paolo, Anna and Franco Sersale wanted to create a luxury hotel with the intimate, sophisticated feel of a cultured private home. We can only say that they and their children and grand children have succeeded, running what feels like a cherished family enterprise that includes the hotel, the Emporio Sirenuse boutique across the road and a line of fragrances and skin care.

Le Sirenuse offers cosseting comfort, exemplary 5-star service and gorgeous rooms, especially the junior suites with their breathtaking sea views over the azure sea to the archipelago of 3 little islands, known as 'Le Sirenuse', after which the hotel is named. Many suites have private terraces or a balcony, vaulted ceilings and hand-made floor tiles. The overall effect is uniquely Positano and somewhere that will make a lasting impression on every guest.

Michelin-starred with a bar under the stars

A bellini on the terrace followed by dinner in the Michelin-starred La Sponda restaurant makes every day here feel like a celebration. Gennaro Russi's cuisine is based on Southern Italy's freshest ingredients but with a modern Mediterranean twist. In 2017, at the age of thirty, he became the youngest Michelin-starred chef on the Amalfi Coast and during January 2018 was invited back to the Ritz in Paris, to cook as its guest chef.

Franco's Bar was converted from the world's most scenic car park into a stunning al fresco bar named after Antonio Sersale's father in 2015, bringing together stunning views with specially commissioned artworks and furniture,  including a striking yellow fountain by Guiseppe Ducrot, and, of course, outstanding cocktails.

Like many 'Sirenusers' we can't wait to visit again this year, but availability is always tight, so don't leave it too late!
