Full accommodation information

Built as an aristocratic family home in 1830, Villa Sant'Andrea, A Belmond Hotel, Taormina Mare nestles on its own private beach, facing the glittering aquamarine sea.

Located in Taormina Mare on a bay considered one of the most beautiful in all of Italy, this elegant Sicily hotel offers an indulgent slice of sumptuous luxury living.

All of 63 the rooms and suites retain the charm of a private residence, with many boasting stunning sea views. The hotel caters well for families and groups, with interconnecting rooms available on request. With the Smile Club entertaining youngsters throughout the day, as well special kid's menus and toys for the beach, this hotel is a great choice for a luxury family holiday in Italy.

Restaurant Oliviero is famous for its sublime seafood and offers guests traditional Mediterranean cuisine enhanced by innovative and imaginative twists. Whether eating here or enjoying a light lunch at the bar, you'll enjoy sea views and a picture-perfect setting.

The delightful Wellness Centre, located in the sub-tropical gardens, provides a range of spa treatments using signature products from La Sultane de Saba. The infinity swimming pool is a particular highlight – its spectacular location at the edge of the bay is a dream come true, offering an enticing alternative to the magnificent private beach.

Lunch and dinner are enjoyed under the shade of a pine tree at Restaurant Oliviero, with its fresh Italian cuisine, innovative menus and stunning setting. In the evenings, sip cocktails and tap your toes to the nightly live music at The Bar.

Lazy days are spent lounging on the private beach in the secluded Bay of Mazzarò, where the translucent waters teem with marine life and the coastline is adorned with many hidden coves. You can also soak up the glorious Mediterranean sunshine by the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the bay.

Work out with a personal trainer in the fitness centre, and then unwind at the Turkish bath, or with an indulgent treatment either at the Wellness Centre or in the comfort of your own room. Take advantage of the complimentary daily boat tour along the spectacular Sicilian East Coast and the Ionian Sea, or use the extensive facilities at sister property Grand Hotel Timeo, which is accessible via complimentary shuttle.

A variety of excursions can also be arranged, so there’s no excuse not to explore this wonderful island. Visit Mount Etna, the largest volcano in Europe, or discover famous locations from the iconic movie The Godfather. The baroque tour also comes highly recommended – tour Sicily’s ornate architecture in Italy’s favourite car, the Fiat 500.
