Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea

Villa Sant'Andrea, Taormina, Sicily

Traditional Hotel


Short description

A 19th-century jewel


Recommended for:
Beach | History & culture | Relaxation


The aquamarine Mediterranean stretches out right beside the Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea – possibly the most romantic hotel in Taormina. A private beach equipped with private cabanas and its own bar awaits, and the sub-tropical gardens are almost always sun-dappled. It's all peaceful and luxurious, while for contrast, a cable car takes guests into town in less than five minutes to sample the buzz of the boutiques and trendy bars. The sea on the doorstep is crystal clear, dotted with caves and coves and full of marine life; in summer, complimentary boat tours make the most of the setting.


The rooms here are a study in elegant sophistication, complete with king size bed, plush fabrics and fine works of art. Take the chance to relax between island explorations, and revitalise in the indulgent en suite marble bathrooms. Balconies and terraces add to the sense of serenity, boasting mesmerising views of the ocean or sub-tropical gardens.


The dining here is an absolute highlight, showcased at the enchanting Oliviero – one of the finest restaurants in Taormina – with Sicily’s striking cliffs as a backdrop and a seasonal menu guaranteed to impress. Indeed, there's always something delectable going on: succulent barbecues on the beach, afternoon teas and candle-lit dinners at secluded spots.


If you can bring yourself to leave the gardens and private beach, you'll be hard pressed to beat the sheer indulgence of the hotel spa. Choose from a range of rejuvenating signature treatments and delight in products inspired by the island and its produce. Carefully selected for their quality, the Sa di Sapone line celebrates artisanal techniques and pure Sicilian olives; Sothys deliver exotic body rituals; Nature’s harnesses fine natural ingredients to purify body and mind.

And if one luxury hotel wasn’t enough, guests at Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea are able to enjoy the charms of its sister hotel too. Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo is a superb spot to enjoy a sunset aperitif as Mount Etna hovers like a mirage against the Mediterranean.
