When you step off the busy streets of Positano into Le Sirenuse, its like entering a peaceful sanctuary. Calm, quiet, and soothing… It is the atmosphere of a family home. You feel comfortable and welcome immediately.
Upon my arrival at Le Sirenuse I was greeted by Giovanni Ciccone, the Operations Manager of the hotel. Mr. Ciccone took me on an extensive tour of the hotel. The Le Sirenuse is the premier five star luxury hotel in Positano, with fifty-eight rooms, suites, and junior suites. And I was able to see many of the unique rooms.
Almost all the rooms have a terrace or balcony overlooking the Bay of Positano. The rooms are contemporary with all the features you would expect in a modern luxury hotel. Yet the hotel contains beautiful antique furniture, handmade Vietri floor tiles, and soaring vaulted ceilings. The bathrooms are sophisticatedly simple, using marble Jacuzzi bathrooms with separate showers and baths and ignature Eau d’Italia body care products.
Le Sirenuse is open seasonally, generally from late March or Early April, until late October each year. When I was visiting the hotel, it was sold out for the next thee weeks, so this is a hotel to book well in advance. There are about 58 rooms in the hotel - this number seems to change every year as they combine rooms and thus, the number of rooms decreases. Every room I visited was immaculate, with details and signature features you would expect in a 5-star hotel.
Attention to detail is impressive - even in the elevator, the "day of the week" was printed on the floor mat... It would be easy to lose track of time in these impressive surroundings. Le Sirenuse has an incredible pool, an Aveda beauty center and spa, and a romantic Champagne Bar. You can dine at the La Sponda restaurant, with gorgeous sea-views.... and hundreds of lit candle - what a romantic dining destination! Also, enjoy a complimentary ride in the hotel’s wooden boat and experience the breathtaking Amalfi coastline from the water.
The breakfast buffet was incredible and service was over-the-top. Or time there was a pleasure, with polite, reserved, yet very attentive service. If you want to stay at an oasis in the center of Positano, choose Le Sirenuse!
