Sister hotel to the nearby Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, this hotel feels worlds away both in location and style due to its peaceful seaside location in Taormina Mare, at the foot of the cliffs below Taormina.
Originally owned by a British aristocratic family and used as a private villa, their influence is very much reflected in the atmosphere and style of the property which is fresh, light and intimate. The majority of their 64 rooms and suites look out towards the crystal clear waters of Mazzaro Bay and have private balconies or terraces.
As well as direct access to its own private beach, the hotel has a wonderful infinity-edged pool right on the bay, indulgent spa and newly built private cabanas on the beach, which are available for up to four people and come equipped with sun loungers, sofa, minibar and, of course, a dedicated waiter service. For those that are keen to explore further up the coast complimentary boat cruises are also on offer to guests during the summer months.
L’Oliviero, the main restaurant, with a wonderful open-air terrace giving you the opportunity to dine under the stars, serves up exquisite seafood and is an ideal location for a late evening cocktail.
