Food & wine | History & culture | Honeymoon


Located on the edge of Palermo, on the island of Sicily, Villa Igiea is described as a seaside-meets-city sanctuary. A grand palazzo surrounded by tiered villa gardens, it overlooks the deep blue Tyrrhenian Sea to spectacular effect. Palermo's ancient churches, Baroque palaces and intricately frescoed buildings are close by, awaiting exploration. In the evening, broad boulevards come alive with twinkling lights, against a backdrop of rolling hills. You're just 30 minutes from Palermo International Airport, and 90 minutes from Verdura Resort, another exquisite Rocco Forte property.


Villa Igiea's elegant rooms are designed by Olga Polizzi in collaboration with Paolo Moschino of Nicholas Haslam Studios. The result is a beautiful blend of contemporary features and period details, featuring locally crafted elements that reflect the property's surroundings. Rooms range from Superior, complete with en suite Carrara marble bathrooms, to luxurious suites with private terraces and stunning sea views. The Presidential Suite, the villa's crowning jewel, is bright and airy, with interconnecting rooms leading out onto a spacious terrazza. 


The hotel's restaurant and bar offers a menu curated by Fulvio Pierangelini, showcasing local ingredients and the chef's own signature flair. From classic pasta and seafood to fresh fruits and produce, every evocative dish pays tribute to timeless Sicilian recipes, with a contemporary twist. Wines are sourced from Sicilian estates and beyond, chosen to compliment the menu. Enjoy a flavourful breakfast al fresco, an evening multi-course banquet, or 24-hour in-room dining. It's all about simple, elegant Italian food.


Aside from its 47 rooms and 19 suites, Villa Igiea's many amenities are designed to help make the most of your stay. Relax at the Villa Igiea Spa with a range of indulgent treatments, sunbathe by the outdoor pool, or head to the tennis court for a friendly game. And, from your unique seaside location, there's everything from boat trips to historic sightseeing excursions in Palermo on offer. Complimentary WiFi, a shuttle bus to the city and same-day laundry service all make life a little easier.
