Opened in 1951 by the Sersale family who still run it, Le Sirenuse has a deserved reputation as one of Italy’s finest hotels.

Harriet, Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel is set in the village of Positano, at the heart of the Amalfi coast, on a steep slope overlooking the Gulf of Salerno and the Islands of the Sirens.

Most of the bedrooms have a balcony or terrace overlooking the azure sea. The rooms are light and spacious, decorated with a combination of antique and contemporary furniture, and have cool whitewashed walls and colourful tiled floors.

The swimming pool is surrounded by a large terrace with stunning views of the sea and the village of Positano. The beach is accessed via a steep flight of stairs cut into the cliff side.

The hotel's La Sponda restaurant serves excellent Neapolitan cuisine, and there are two bars, while the immaculate Aveda Concept Spa combines traditional Ayurvedic and modern therapies and has a sauna and steambath. The hotel has two boats, including a classic 1972 Riva, available for excursions.

Why we love it
