Le Sirenuse is an 18th-century palazzo converted into a 5-star deluxe hotel, located in Positano's heart, owned and managed by the Marchesi Sersale. Le Sirenuse is one hour away from Naples International Airport. Facilities include a heated swimming pool open from Apr. 1 to Oct. 15, a fitness center with a new spa, indoor and outdoor bar, and Michelin star restaurant serving local specialties. Le Sirenuse is a wonderful place to enjoy Positano's simple pleasures and the spectacular Amalfi Coast. John Steinbeck, who visited in 1953, wrote 'Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.'
The History - Le Sirenuse opened in 1951. Four Neapolitan siblings, the Marchesi Aldo, Paolo, Anna, and Franco Sersale, turned their summer house in Positano into a charming hotel, overlooking Positano's bay. Today, the 58-room resort is considered one of Italy’s leading seaside luxury hotels, though it still retains a private home's intimate, cultured atmosphere. Franco, an art connoisseur whose impeccable taste did so much to define Le Sirenuse's signature style, passed away in January 2015. But this remains a cherished family concern. Since 1992, Franco’s son Antonio has looked after the hotel's day-to-day running. Carla, Antonio’s wife, designs Le Sirenuse, Positano Mare Collection, a line of beachwear and womenswear inspired by Positano and sold at the Emporio Sirenuse boutique in selected stores worldwide. Paolo’s daughter Marina created Le Sirenuse’s fragrance and skincare line Eau d’Italie with her husband, Sebastián Alvarez Murena. Simultaneously, her sister Giulia curates Le Sirenuse’s much-loved outdoor planting schemes and indoor greenery.
Positano is located in the southern part of Italy, just 60 km south of Naples, in the heart of the Sorrento Peninsula, dividing two of Italy's most beautiful bays - the Bay of Naples and the Bay of Salerno. The village itself is built around a small curving bay on a steep hill overlooking the Sirens' Island. Places of interest nearby include Capri, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompeii, Sorrento, Paestum, and Naples.
Rooms & Suites - Almost all of the rooms, suites, and junior suites look out over Positano and its bay. Most have a private terrace or balcony, and all feature whitewashed walls, traditional vaulted ceilings and handmade Amalfi Coast tiles, as well as antiques and artworks from the private collection.
Dining - La Sponda Restaurant. Le Sirenuse’s romantic La Sponda restaurant's light Mediterranean cuisine is based on fresh local ingredients and inspired by Naples and the Amalfi Coast's great culinary traditions. Infused by the leisured elegance of Positano’s dolce vita, La Sponda is illuminated, in the evening, by four hundred candles that create an unforgettable atmosphere.
Swimming Pool - Surrounded by lemon trees and comfortable deck chairs, the terrace swimming pool is a little corner of peace where you can unwind, sunbathe and enjoy the stunning views.
Le Sirenuse Spa - Le Sirenuse Spa was designed by the renowned Italian architect, GAE AULENTI. Her design, which uses teak wood, white marble, and stainless steel, steps away from the Moorish architecture prevalent in the hotel and creates a modern and essential space. The SPA includes a Sauna, a granite Steam bath, and an Ice room. The gym is fitted with “TechnoGym” cardiovascular machines and weights, stretching and yoga mats, and two “Megaformer.” You can access the Spa and Gym from the pool terrace or a dedicated stairway accessible from the corridors of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors.
Spa Suite - A suite for couples is available to enjoy simultaneous treatments. A private steam bath in sand color granite and an emotional shower further enhance this pleasant experience. The SPA therapists are qualified in Aromatherapy treatments for the face and body as well as body massages. AVEDA’s natural products are exclusively used and treatment techniques, inspired by the ancient Ayurvedic philosophy by which physical beauty is always linked to the mind’s peace. Massages & Treatments in the Spa Suite for Couples - The Spa Suite is located on floor -1. For any treatment, please go to the Spa, where one of the therapists will come to pick you up and accompany you to the Spa Suite. All Spa Suite treatments are for two people, made by two therapists simultaneously and in a synchronized way.
