Splendid Hotel, Taormina

Atop the Rock of Taormina, the Splendid Hotel captures center stage for its impressive panoramic views of the Ionian Sea, just minutes from the city’s charming old town and the famous Greek Theatre. Rooms provide modern comfort, and the rooftop pool area serves as an idyllic place to relax with scenes of Sicily before you.

Genuine Sicilian culinary offerings serve as the icing on the cake. Surrender to the seemingly boundless view of the sea as it merges with the horizon, where the sky meets the earth in a captivating collision. Enclosed by walls of glass, the hotel’s stunning pool appears to belong to the sea, a verdant oasis set on a rooftop garden overlooking a line of coastline stretching across the Ionian from Taormina to Messina.

Guests can take advantage of the poolside bar to make a quick selection from a light à la carte menu for a fine lunch or to simply pick at a snack. As the sun dips and Taormina begins to glitter with the glow of streetlights, it’s time to retire to the pool’s bar, an intimate hideaway amid clusters of palms and flowers for an aperitif or a final drink on the coast (live music and other evening entertainments are a hotel tradition). On the fourth floor of Splendid Hotel, a breathtaking terrace offers further enchantment of the views and a generous continental buffet breakfast, which includes homemade, artisanal treats and traditional Sicilian pastries.

The hotel is located on the itinerary of the “Bike across Sicily” and “Sicily Baroque” bike tours, making it a natural choice for avid cycle tourists. They represent the ideal guests for the hotel, and the combination of stellar views, convenient location, and first-rate facilities will perfectly complement the memorable days cycling across and through Sicily.
