“Positano”, said John Steinbeck, “…is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone”. His favoured haunt was Le Sirenuse, an eighteenth century palazzo and summer retreat of the Marchese Sersale. This member of The Leading Hotels of the World is a place where couples can enjoy the best of the Amalfi Coast, relaxing in elegant rooms, most of which have vaulted ceilings, private terrace or balcony and marbled bathrooms with whirlpool bath tub. Meet up in the Champagne & Oyster Bar, open mid-May to mid-October weather permitting, on the frangipane bedecked terrace for a Champagne Millésimé or a cocktail. Dine alfresco by candlelight, at the Michelin-star La Sponda, on Mediterranean inspired cuisine accompanied by panoramic views across Positano. Le Sirenuse Spa is perfectly equipped with sauna, Turkish bath, fitness centre and massage cabins where indulgent rituals employ Aveda aromatic oils and lotions. Relax around the heated swimming pool or enjoy the short walk to the boutique-lined streets of Positano and its dramatic black sand beach. Explore the Amalfi Coast on the hotel’s boat Sant’ Antonio.
