Le Sirenuse: A Seaside Paradise of Luxury and Elegance in Positano
Le Sirenuse opened its doors in 1951, when the Sersale family transformed their summer house on the Amalfi Coast in Positano into an elegant little hotel. Today, the 58-room complex is considered one of Italy’s leading luxury beachfront hotels, while maintaining the intimacy of a private residence.
The rooms at Le Sirenuse are simply sumptuous. They are decorated with exquisite taste, blending classic elegance with Mediterranean heritage. Every detail has been carefully thought out to provide guests with the highest level of comfort, with refined bed linen, tastefully selected furniture and, above all, a breathtaking view of the sea. The hotel is also famous for its Michelin-starred restaurant La Sponda. The cuisine is divine, highlighting the local products.
” Le Sirenuse is located in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, Positano. In the middle of all these beautiful buildings, it really distinguishes itself by its colours, red and white. This is without a doubt, the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I travel a lot and yet, the hospitality at the hotel stands out for its excellence. The interior design is magnificent, with a collection of contemporary art that is simply divine and elegantly decorates the entire property”Timotej Letonja
Beyond its art collection, the hotel is a true jewel in its own way. For example, the spa was designed by the renowned architect Gae Aulenti. One of the highlights of the hotel is undoubtedly the infinity pool. Located on a terrace overlooking the sea, it offers a breathtaking panoramic view.
« Relaxing by the pool, soaking up the sun and contemplating the surrounding landscape is a truly magical experience. »Timotej Letonja
Despite its rapid expansion and international reputation, the hotel has retained a very family spirit, thanks to the seamless management of its owners. Antonio Sersale, the second generation co-owner, oversees the day-to-day running of the hotel.
“The service is simply outstanding. The staff are extremely attentive and make sure that every request is taken into account. Their kindness and professionalism go a long way in making the guests’ stay unforgettable. I had the chance to meet Francesco Sersale, and it was an exceptional encounter. »Timotej Letonja
The hotel also has its own fashion boutique founded in 1990, run by Antonio’s wife, Carla. She is the designer and manager of the hotel’s coveted resortwear and lifestyle brand, Emporio Sirenuse. The label’s artful narrative translates a cocktail of creative influences into a lighthearted celebration of understated luxury. Carefree and cosmopolitan, the collection reinterprets the elegance of Italian design through traditional crafts and cultural references from around the globe. The collection includes a unique range of exclusive prints and embroideries, on caftans and silk summer dresses.
“The Sirenuse Hotel is a true paradise by the sea. From the excellent service to the elegant rooms and the fine cuisine, everything is in harmony to make your stay a unique experience. I will never forget the picturesque view from the hotel. It’s so beautiful, it’s like being in a movie!Timotej Letonja
