Highlights

  • Sweeping views of the Bay of Mazzarrò
  • A private beach with spacious cabanas and a bar
  • An infinity pool with glorious views
  • Some of the best dining in Sicily

The aquamarine Mediterranean stretches out right beside the Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea, possibly the most romantic hotel in Taormina. A private beach with plenty of parasols and its own bar awaits, and the sub-tropical gardens are almost always sun-dappled. All is 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.

In more detail

The sea on the doorstep is crystal clear, dotted with caves and coves and full of marine life; in summer, complementary boat tours make the most of the setting. The spectacular infinity pool is just as enticing, as is the food. The poolside restaurant transforms into a traditional trattoria at night, complete with local specialities and live music. Champagne and street food mix it up on the Literary Terrace, and there’s always something delectable on offer: barbeques to be enjoyed on the beach, picnics to take anywhere, afternoon teas and candle-lit dinners at secluded spots.

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