For more than half a century, Positano's Hotel Poseidon has been one of the international jet set's preferred haunts on the Amalfi Coast.
Yet, despite the steady stream of best-selling authors, politicians of international repute, and stars of both big and small screens, this establishment has managed to conserve an intimate, almost family-like atmosphere, where even the most illustrious guests are made to feel immediately at home.
Hotel Poseidon's 54 light-filled bedrooms and suites are decorated in classic Mediterranean style.
Almost all rooms have their own balcony or terrace from where to admire a splendid view of the sea, the few that don't, look out on to the hotel's attractive gardens and the historic center of Positano.
Hotel Poseidon's Wellness Center is equipped with Turkish bath and solar shower. The spa menu includes a vast range of face and body treatments, performed by members of Hotel Poseidon's expert team of beauty and massage therapists.
When not in the wellness center, guests might easily be found lazing by the poolside on Hotel Poseidon's large panoramic terrace, or at the snack bar, enjoying a delicious light lunch or salad.
The finest regional cuisine is served at Hotel Poseidon's "Il Tridente" restaurant, either in the main dining room or on the terrace, beneath an enchanting pergola of bougainvillea.
The typically Mediterranean menu features a delicious selection of fresh pasta dishes, and the spectacular fish and seafood specialities for which the Amalfi Coast is famous.
With its superb banqueting facilities, elegant meeting room and panoramic terraces, Hotel Poseidon provides an exclusive venue for glamorous weddings, in the unique setting of Positano. The hotel's conference room is suitable for small meetings and seminars.
