Built by an English aristocrat family in 1830, Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea has the atmosphere of a stylish private villa and is known as one of the most exclusive hotels in Taormina. Located in the beautiful bay of Mazarro, the villa has direct access to its private beach and is surrounded by sub-tropical gardens. The promontory around the bay is dotted with magical caves, including the Grotta Azzurra, which can be visited by boat.
The hotel’s main restaurant, Oliviero, serves the freshest seafood and enjoys a stunning location on a panoramic terrace with lovely views of the crystal clear water in the bay. At night you can enjoy an after dinner drink or cocktail under the stars at the waterside bar with live music entertainment.
The majority of rooms and suites look out over the beach and pristine waters of the bay of Mazarro. Most rooms feature expansive balconies and terraces, equipped with tables and chairs so that guests can enjoy an al fresco breakfast overlooking the sparkling sea.
Built on the cliffs of Mount Tauro, the town of Taormina affords spectacular views of the coast with its rugged rocks, sandy coves and crystal clear waters, and offers a prime viewing spot for sweeping panoramas of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest volcano. At night, the lights twinkling in Capo Taormina and the curve of the bay of Giardini Naxos are inexpressibly beautiful.
