For most of us, a hotel with lavish décor, superlative amenities, and excellent service has the trappings of a luxurious getaway. But for superstars rolling off the red carpet, only the crème-de-la-crème of the lodging industry will do.
After all, Hollywood's elite endures countless hours in the spotlight, and they crave nothing more than some peace and quiet. They're looking for a place to stay where they can go unnoticed as they stretch along powdery sands, glide down pristine slopes, and canoodle over romantic dinners.
And while well-heeled A-listers have their pick of top properties across the globe, it comes as no surprise to us that they're stealing away to some of these palatial retreats. Regardless of whether you're an adored Hollywood celeb or a discerning globe-trotter, as soon as you walk through the doors of these extravagant digs, we have no doubt that you'll feel like royalty.
When it comes to choosing the perfect place to stay along the Amalfi Coast, it's hard to rival Le Sirenuse. Nestled amid the scenic cliffs of the quaint town of Positano, Le Sirenuse charms its star clientele with 18th-century-style décor, gorgeous scenery, and lavish amenities.
Here, celebs can canoodle on their private terrace or indulge in Neapolitan culinary delights at La Sponda restaurant, which oozes romance with its intimate feel. Just take it from author John Steinbeck, who after visiting in 1953, captured the aura of Le Sirenuse's Mediterranean charm when he described the property as, "an old family house converted into a first-class hotel." In more recent years, Reese Witherspoon and hubby Jim Toth spent their honeymoon at this retreat.
