This Belmond hotel exudes a timeless glamour that has long been a lure for the glitterati. From its elevated position in central Taormina it commands breathtaking views over brooding Mount Etna and the sun-drenched resorts along the coastline. Stroll through verdant grounds in the footsteps of illustrious guests to the fabled Literary Terrace. Rooms and suites recall the magnificence of Sicilian Baroque and most boast a terrace or balcony to maximise the vistas. The elegance continues into The Restaurant where Mediterranean dishes are a speciality. Meet up in the indoor bar designed to evoke the atmosphere of a nineteenth century winter garden, or at the snack bar by the heated outdoor swimming pool, serving pizzas from a brick oven. Massages and beauty treatments are available in the wellness centre; the private beach facilities and the Smile Club at sister property Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea are reached by a complimentary shuttle service. Daily boat cruises are available for exploring the Taormina coast, plus a shuttle service to Taormina centre.
