Family home turned boutique hotel.
In 1951 four siblings turned a family home into Le Sirenuse, a hotel that today consists of 59 rooms overlooking its namesake, the Islands of the Sirens. The rooms are a mix of modern and classic glamour, with antique furniture, vaulted ceilings and handmade Vietri floor tiles. We recommend rooms with terraces and balconies looking out to the sea.
Those same glorious views can be found in the three different restaurant settings, each focused on fresh local ingredients—heavy on seafood. Other facilities include a full-service Aveda Spa & Fitness Center, outdoor pool and a daily calendar of activities to keep you as busy as you want to be. Even great American novelists have fallen under the spell of Le Sirenuse. In 1953, two years after this elegant 18thcentury family house was converted into a hotel, John Steinbeck descended on the property and later wrote of the area: “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.” Wedged into the cliffside overlooking Positano, the location is half of its success. Attention to detail from the family-run team and excellent dining—the restaurant has a well-deserved Michelin star—completes the picture. This small boutique hotel is a treasure.
