The new season of Le Sirenuse, the boutique hotel owned by the Sersale family on the Amalfi Coast, has just begun, with a series of inviting and welcoming new features to experience.
The Hotel Le Sirenuse
Opened in 1951, after Aldo, Paolo, Franco and Anna Sersale decided to transform their summer residence into a boutique hotel on the bay of Positano, Le Sirenuse has been synonymous with the charm and bien vivre of the Amalfi Coast for 70 years.
Managed since 1992 by Antonio Sersale, Franco’s son, the hotel now has 58 rooms, personally furnished by the family, with a sense of artistic taste that alternates antique furniture with contemporary works of art.
The rooms, with their white walls and vaulted ceilings, are enriched by a floor of handmade tiles typical of the craftsman of the Amalfi Coast, and the suites and junior suites overlooking the bay or the suggestive “pyramid of houses” of the village, expressing a timeless glamour. Marking the uniqueness, charm and quest for beauty of Le Sirenuse, the hotel’s iconic terrace overlooks the Li Galli archipelago and the colorful houses of Positano clinging to the hillside of the Amalfi Coast, taking in some of the most beautiful and romantic terrace-views of the world.
The restaurant of Le Sirenuse
The structure, which also includes a luxurious swimming pool on the terrace and the futuristic Spa designed by Gae Aulenti, boasts a gourmet offer of the highest level, starting from the La Sponda Restaurant, led by chef Gennaro Russo, which offers cuisine linked to the great raw materials of the territory and based on creativity and lightness.
This year with a new tasting menu, together with the rich menu of refined gourmet proposals, the gastronomic proposal of La Sponda focuses even more on the excellence of local products, reworked into dishes of great impact, to be enjoyed surrounded by the romantic light of the 400 candles that are lit every evening.
While at lunch La Sponda is illuminated by the reflection of the Amalfi sun shining on the sea below the terrace and, caressed by the sea breeze, at noon guests can taste some of the signature dishes of the culinary tradition of Campania, creatively reworked by the chef.
On two breathtaking terraces, Aldo’s Bar, opened in 2001 in honor of Aldo Sersale, combines a refined and elegant atmosphere with a selection of food that plays with seafood and classic dishes, paired with signature cocktails or champagne.
The poolside bar and restaurant are dedicated to lunch, while the Don’t Worry Bar is opening in the inner room adjacent to La Sponda, embellished with a majestic antique solid wood counter and Martin Creed’s work of art of the same name, a neon of different colors in capital letters. At Don’t Worry you can order cocktails and aperitivos or relax after dinner with a distillate or a signature drink.
Meanwhile, Franco’s Bar pays homage to the fine collector Franco Sersale and is located on a charming terrace separated from the hotel structure and totally independent, where you can enjoy the best mixology cocktails.
Franco’s has recently consolidated its brand, renewing not only the look and graphics of the mise en place and seats, while always focusing on its historical colors blue and white, but also enhancing the cocktail menu with the advice of Mattia Pastori of Nonsolococktails, adding new and inviting signature cocktails.
