Select from elegantly decorated, spacious guest rooms with garden and sea views.

Sip a refreshing drink on the terrace or take a dip in the serene pool as you immerse yourself in the breathtaking views of Taormina. If you want to while away some time by the sea take the shuttle bus (payable locally) to sister hotel, the Hotel Caparena, which has its own private beach, and is just two miles away.

The hotel has 102 rooms (official rating 4 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years.

Due to the elevated position of the property, some of the grounds and pool areas may not be suitable for those less able bodied. Please contact our Personal Travel Planners for further guidance.

About the location

Holidays in Taormina marry history and culture to form an unforgettable experience in Italy. It’s perched at the top of Monte Tauro in the foothills of Mount Etna on Sicily’s Eastern coastline, between the cities of Catania and Messina. This ancient town offers visitors a view into the past with a number of elegantly preserved historic treasures, from the grand Greek-Roman Theatre to the equally impressive Palazzo Corvaja, which are just waiting to be discovered.

You don’t have to be a history buff to make the most of everything Taormina has to offer. Alongside the historical sights there are plenty of other attractions to take in. The main street, Corso Umberto, is traffic free and home to an array of shops and restaurants to rival any in the bigger cities.

There are also plenty of seaside activities to dive into thanks to the town’s coastal setting. Adventurous travellers can try watersports like wind surfing and snorkelling, while relaxing scenic boat tours around the gorgeous capes and grottos of the Ionian Sea allow you to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, simply spend long tranquil days on sun soaked shingle beaches.

The hotel is 1 hour from Catania airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.
