From luxurious palaces and beach clubs beside the glittering sea to traditional family-run farms, Sicily’s hotels have pretty much every option covered. The tough part is choosing between them…
Most of the five-star hotels in Sicily are found in Taormina. Most historic is the Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, where the rich and famous have been gracing its neo-classical lounges since 1863.
Elsewhere, all of Sicily’s biggest towns have at least one luxury residence – though these are often four-star rather than five. An exception is Palermo’s old school, sea-facing Grand Hotel Villa Igiea.
The countryside also contains several hideaways for luxury-lovers seeking a retreat, superb facilities or simply proximity to sand. Arguably Sicily’s best luxury hotel is the 230-acre (93-hectare) Rocco Forte Verdura Resort, with its three golf courses, six tennis courts and a 60m (197 foot) infinity pool.
Most of Sicily’s satellite islands also have at least one luxury option. The Aeolians’ best accommodation is mostly on Lipari, while far-flung Pantelleria has just debuted the Sikelia – the newest member of Sicily’s five-star brigade.
