Activities & Excursions
Le Sirenuse is designed to help you resist those well-meaning but slightly annoying friends who say “You mean you went all the way to Positano and you didn’t go to Pompeii?” We love active guests, but we also love those who want to do nothing more than chill in a beautiful place for a week, and we especially like those who come full of ambitious plans and instead end up kicking back and simply enjoying this beautiful place we call home.
However, chilling and recharging one’s energy reserves doesn’t mean sitting still. That’s why we’ve put together a weekly calendar of activities that take place in and around the hotel and are all entirely free of charge to our guests. Among them are a wine tasting with the sommelier, a pre-breakfast pilates workout, a cocktail-mixing lesson and a short but testing trek up 1,865 steps to Nocelle, a ‘perched’ village with stunning views down the coast. Twice a year, in March and November, Le Sirenuse organizes the non plus ultra of activities: Dolce Vitality, an entire week of fitness, healthy eating and restorative yoga in one of the world’s best-equipped open-air gyms – the hills above Positano.
Calendar of Activities
Messing around in Boats
The Amalfi Coast takes on an entirely different aspect when seen from the sea, and it’s no surprise that one of our most perennially popular activities is an excursion on the Sant’Antonio, a glorious old fishing boat that used to belong to our bon viveur of an uncle, Aldo Sersale. Another evergreen classic is the boat ride to lunch at Nerano, a seaside village whose stellar restaurants and trattorias are well-known to Amalfi Coast insiders. Last but very much not least, our vintage Riva Aquarama speedboat, a true dolce vita icon, is now available for rental, with skipper, between the hours of 10am and 6pm. Note that our boat activities are necessarily subject to weather conditions, and may not be available at the beginning and end of each season.
Exploring the Region
Le Sirenuse is not just a hotel, it’s a curator of unique experiences. We love it when guests bombard us with questions about where to go, who to talk to, where to eat, what to avoid – but also when they tell us about discoveries they have made. In the ongoing Le Sirenuse Guide, which is being published in instalments in our online magazine Sirenuse Journal, we are revealing some of our own and our friends’ secrets. But not all – we like to keep a few to share with you in person, in Positano!
