Elegant luxury abounds in this temple of hotel sophistication, and my second stay at the legendary Le Sirenuse didn’t disappoint. It’s more than fifteen years since I first checked-in and she’s better than ever. Refreshed rooms (made beautiful every year while closed for winter) and polished service from the staff that have worked at the hotel for more than 40 years, help keep this property a firm favourite with all who stay here.
Oh, and did I mention the view is jaw dropping??
One of my favourite hotel addictions is beautiful sheets, and the beds at Le Sirenuse are perfectly made with the most luxurious linen sheets… a habit-forming luxury indeed and just another reason to make your way to Positano!
The owners of Le Sirenuse, the Sersale family know what they are doing… this is refined seaside luxury at its best in picture postcard Positano. Combine this with their stylish and well-edited boutique Emporio Le Sirenuse across the cobblestone street and you also have the best shopping in Positano at your doorstep!
Pick up a pair of their collectable swimming trunks and my new favourite finds… Swamp loafers made from a washable canvas (in Navy of course) and two-tone “St Tropez” espadrilles by cult Spanish designer Mint & Rose. I guarantee you will become obsessed with their hotel scent Eau d’Italie so grab a haul of these addictive bath products while you are at it and take a piece of Positano home.
HOT TIP: The Amalfi Coast is peppered with fab beach clubs to dine at, so use Positano as your base to explore and sail around to one of my favourites… Lo Scoglio for an alfresco lunch. Dine with the locals and savvy-insiders on the house specialty… Spaghetti alla Zucchini with perfect blue seaside views to match… and of course a crisp glass of the local Pino Grigio.
You must check-in to Le Sirenuse at least once in your life, (or more if you should be so lucky) and experience what I’ve named one of my favourite hotels in the world.

Brent, have you tried Il San Pietro just outside Positano? I’d be interested to hear a comparison
Hi Christian, I haven’t stayed at Il San Pietro, I’ve only had drinks there. It would be another fine choice in Positano I’m sure. It’s just outside of Positano on the way to Praiano so if you don’t need to be right in Positano it could be good!
Sounds like a very nice stay indeed! Love the views!
