Located at the centre of the village of Positano, Le Sirenuse is situated beautifully above the sea creating gorgeous vistas. It is an ideal spot for luxury, peace and silence. Le Sirenuse is justifiably known as the place to stay in Positano.

Le Sirenuse has been owned by the Sersale family since it opened in 1951. They still live and entertain in the hotel meaning it retains the original family-run feel that makes Southern Italy so popular.

John Steinbeck wrote of Positano in an article in 1953 "It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. The houses climb a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it...The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water laps gently on a beach of small pebbles."

With descriptions such as this it is unsurprising that Hotel Le Sirenuse is considered one of the most romantic and beautiful hotels in the Amalfi Coast. The guest rooms, with their elevated height above the sea, have breathtaking views of the bay of Positano. The candlelight atmosphere of La Sponda Restaurant and the elegance of the champagne and oyster bar provide memorable wining and dining experiences.

A stay at Le Sirenuse is really a very special treat, it is such a unique hotel with outstanding views that will remain with you forever.

Le Sirenuse is in the heart of Positano with wonderful views over the bay. Sit back on the terraces and watch boats come and go or wander from the hotel and explore the local shops and bars. We can arrange a wonderful local wine tasting experience for you while you are here or take a boat trip along the coast or to Capri. The hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant La Sponda canot be missed, featuring locally-grown vegetables and traditionally inspired dishes your tastebuds will love, and with 400 candles lighting the restaurant at night you will remember your visit here for all the right reasons. Rooms at Le Sirenuse are delightful with whitewashed walls, hand-made tiled floors and a feeling of Italian charm all around the hotel. Breakfast overlooking the bay with the morning sun warming the air as the town slowly wakes up was a particularly favourite moment.

Le Sirenuse is a delightfully classic, traditional Italian style hotel in the heart of Positano, one of the most popular and trendy areas to visit along the coastline. With a bustling atmosphere and the fantastic location, it is easy to see why Le Sirenuse has established a great reputation as a stylish base from which to explore the town. The property offers unrivalled views of the picturesque houses set into the hillside as well as the stunning coastline and beaches. The glittering candlelight dinners on the terrace at Le Sirenuse create a wonderfully romantic atmosphere in the summer months. For those wanting the opportunity for exploration on their doorstep, combined with luxurious spacious accommodation, this is the ideal hotel.

I loved the regal Italian style of Le Sirenuse. Not at all stuffy, but brilliantly classic. The food in the terrace restaurant is delicious and the sommeliers excellent too.
