I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Boheme once during my summer travels in Italy and I can say with confidence it was amazing. This luxury villa was completely focused on attention to detail.  It is lo­cated in a quiet and pleas­ant lo­ca­tion in the city cen­ter, 85 steps down­hill from the main road. With breath­tak­ing views of Posi­tano and the Amalfi Coast’s mul­ti­col­ored sun­sets. 
These elegant suites are adorned with styl­ish an­tiques, Vi­etri tiles floors, in­laid ceil­ings and breath­tak­ing views of the sea. They have private en­trances, large rooms  (some with sit­ting area as well), king size beds, bath­room/shower, satel­lite plasma TV, wifi, tele­phone, safety box, cof­fee machine with pods, Pri­vate fit­ness areas, and patios that lead to a gorgeous cliffside pool area with outdoor shower.
My suite had a private outdoor patio area complete with sun beds, table with chairs, gazebo covered in flowers and out­door heated jacuzzi. This was actually where I had my breakfast served to me everyday, and It was a dream. 
I can assure you that if you're after a romantic luxury experience with tons of privacy this is one of the best places to stay in Positano Italy.

Every morning you can go down stairs to enjoy the elaborate breakfast buffet in their eating area and sit at the tables that overlook the ocean and watch all the boats getting ready for the day. I also really enjoyed just having cocktails in the lobby area. It's a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. The lobby has its own bar so you can have specialty cocktails while you enjoy the views of the ocean. They also have a outdoor pool area that serves food, so lunch by the pool is a fun option if you need a break from the sand.
