The Bellevue Syrene, one of Sorrento’s well-known luxury hotels, is located in a place of timeless beauty. Ancient fish shops and Nymphea prove the presence of the Romans – From Augustus to Tiberius and Virgil – and legend goes that this place, set between rocks and sea, was so beautiful that the Mermaids chose it as their home.
Born as a patrician residence, then became a villa, the five star Bellevue Hotel of Sorrento is open all year and offers a modern hospitality which has its roots in a tradition that seduced intellectuals, artists and heads of State.
An ancient and thriving land, one of the most fascinating places that the Romans used to call Campania felix. A place of culture, art, food and wine excellences, charming colours and fragrances, a land to live and discover.
Sorrento rises on the southern extremity of the Gulf of Naples and gives its name to the splendid coast that has made visitors from all over the world fall in love. From Sorrento are easily reachable all the major interest historical and archaeological locations of the Napoli province.
We want our guests to feel at home even at hundreds of miles away. We like to treat them from the moment they first walk in our welcoming lobby, where they can refresh themselves using our exclusive Lounge Club service.
It is important to us that our guests feel at ease, and for this reason we love that they can freely entertain themselves in the common areas of our residence. We want our common areas to be welcoming and comfortable, so that our Guests can enjoy their free time.

ART & DESIGN
Those staying at Bellevue Syrene cannot fail to recognise the traces of its illustrious past in the Hotel’s rooms. The charm of the Villa overlooking the Gulf of Naples has always surprised and charmed its guests.
A luxurious holiday villa for the Roman emperors, an oasis of peace for the European sovereigns such as Ludwig II of Bavaria, Vittorio Emanuele III, Paul of Greece, Empress Eugénie de Montijo, a holiday rich of inspiration for artists and intellectuals of the likes of Turgenev, Jorge, Marguerite Yourcenar.
Being in love with this residence and passionate about Roman history, the English collector Lord William Waldorf Astor decided to create, at the beginning of the 20th century, in some rooms an almost perfect reproduction of Pompeii’s House of the Vettii, the current Villa Pompeiana of Bellevue Syrene.
Today the two rooms with the charming terrace overlooking the sea of the Land of Mermaids cheer the guests’ summer breakfasts and are the romantic and evocative location that the hotel reserves for wedding banquets.
Not a revival of the imperial splendour but an actual museum house, in which findings from the Roman period along with contemporary works by talented local artists, such as the Neapolitan painter Gennaro Sardella, the sculptures and designers Riccardo Dalisi and the artist from Avellino Paolo Sandulli all harmoniously coexist, exalting each other.
