Le Sirenuse, Positano
This charming delight, overlooking the pastel facade bay of Positano, is one of Italy’s leading seaside luxury hotels, though it still retains the intimate, cultured atmosphere of a private home. It features sumptuously appointed bedrooms, a resplendent spa with bio-sauna and Turkish baths, the revered La Sponda restaurant is Michelin starred and there's a decadent champagne and oyster bar. With suites some70 metres above the sea, the vistas are literally breathtaking, plus the sparkling sun terrace and pool and vaulted dining conservatory are home to the rich, famous and beautiful. It even has its own emporium boutique, selling chic La Sirenuse fragrance and skincare lines, plus Positano-inspired beachwear and womenswear that’s also available in exclusive stores worldwide.
