A quintessentially beautiful Amalfi Coast hotel
Within easy walking distance of Sorrento's many shops, sights, restaurants and bars
Suspended between sea and sky, a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux collection
Bellevue Syrene has the wow factor in many respects. From the moment you enter, walking along the pergola covered walkway, there is beauty to delight at every turn. Vines and wisteria drape over the terraces, with stone busts and figurines placed along the balcony edge lending the setting a real sense of grandeur. A large conservatory houses a grand piano that fills the room with peaceful music when the pianist is in residence in the evenings. The fine dining restaurant is located on the sea front next to the terrace bar so guests can enjoy watching the sun setting over the ocean each evening. Large reception rooms boast ornate yet contemporary chandeliers, and the atmosphere is one of peaceful luxury, in a style perfectly in tune with the local area.
The hotel rises from the foundations of a large Roman Villa, dating back to the II Century B.C and owned by the Roman Emperors. In 1820 the Villa was turned into a boutique hotel. The original 17th century frescos have been restored and are still visible. Today the hotel is a perfect balance between the ancient and modern philosophies of relaxation and comfort.
The fifty bedrooms and suites are spread throughout the hotel, all but two enjoying sea views. The hotel itself is positioned on the cliff face, with many of the rooms having balconies that are idyllic spots on which to enjoy a morning cup of coffee, watching the beach clubs along the coast come to life below you.
Bellevue Syrene has its own beach club, reached by taking the lift down the cliff and emerging from one of the fissures in the cliff façade. Here sun loungers are lined up so guests can relax to the sound of the water lapping against the rocks, and a beach club bar provides refreshments throughout the day.
Back up at the hotel guests can also enjoy refreshments from the juice bar situated to one side of the terrace, and the complimentary Club Lounge offers snacks and refreshments from 10am until 8pm. There are two restaurants which both offer outstanding views and during the summer La Pergola terrace is opened, providing meals during the day and turning into a piano bar in the evenings.
Bellevue Syrene occupies what is arguably the best position in Sorrento. Right on the water front it enjoy beautiful sea views over the Bay of Naples, best enjoyed from the numerous stunning terraces. It is also mere minutes on foot from the many restaurants and shops the line the squares and narrow streets of Sorrento.
Just an hours drive from Naples Airport, the hotel is convenient to get to, and guests staying here can also use it as a base to explore the nearby towns of Positano, Praiano, Amalfi and Ravello, spread out along the Amalfi Coast, all within a two hour drive. Pompei is also within each reach.
The best way to describe Bellevue Syrene is 'suspended between sea and sky'. The spectacular sea views can be viewed from so many parts of the hotel and the pergola terrace, with its wisteria hanging down above the tables, is exactly the kind of place you dream about when someone mentions the Amalfi Coast.
The service at the hotel is excellent and from the moment guests arrive and stroll down the entrance walkway they will be waited on hand and foot. The staff at the hotel do everything possible to make sure guests have as relaxing a stay as possible, making this one of the best places to stay on the Amalfi Coast.
