Owned by Antonio and his lovely wife Carla, Le Sirenuse is a wonderful place from which to enjoy the simple pleasures of Positano and the spectacular Amalfi Coast.
John Steinbeck, who visited in 1953, wrote 'Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.'
The magnificent dreamlike hotel has been busy with the imminent relaunch of Aldo’s Bar & Seafood Grill. This will be a younger, fresher reboot of the famous panoramic bar and casual dining space, where craft Negronis, caviar, champagne, light Mediterranean platters and upbeat ambient music merge in a heady summer mix. This chic Amalfi Coast insider haunt will be the place to sit back, cocktail in hand, and enjoy the iconic view of Positano immortalised by generations of photographers and artists.
Le Sirenuse’s beautiful Vintage Riva Acquarama is returning to the Amalfi Coast following a painstaking restoration. The vintage wooden speedboat will be offering 2 hour excursions along the coast so guests can experience Positano from the sea.
And a further new offering for guests is a visit to a Medieval watchtower in Praiano - the fairy-tale setting of Paolo Sandulli’s house-studio. Here, the 70-year-old artist and poet crafts terracotta busts of wistful, ethereal women inspired by the ladies of the Aragon courted sculpted in the 15th century by Francesco Laurana. But Sandulli adds his own whimsical touch – hairpieces made of dyed sea sponges. From the 2020 season, visits to Sandulli’s studio will become regular fixtures on Le Sirenuse’s weekly activities schedule.
If all that wasn’t enough - also, keeping herself very busy, Carla runs Emporio Sirenuse, a fabulous clothing collection.
