Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo

We are delighted to be working with our associates at Belmond and offering another of their iconic hotels as we know them to be a company of the most exacting standards. Set high in the rocky hills on the east coast of the island, with Mount Etna as a dramatic backdrop, Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo was the first hotel built in Taormina and has been the destination of choice for glamorous European and Hollywood stars since its opening in 1873. Located directly opposite the Greek Theatre, and a short stroll from Corso Umberto, the hotel benefits from a fantastic location and is surrounded by a six-acre park with magnificent gardens encircling its panoramic pool. It is famed for its Literary Terrace, a favourite meeting point of distinguished guests through the decades, and also offers an excellent restaurant and spa facilities. The hotel features 45 rooms and 26 suites, most with terraces or balconies affording captivating views over the bay. Each room’s decor evokes traditional Sicilian style combining beauty, elegance and comfort.

 
  • Your Space

    The Restaurant serves delicious Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine, with dishes created using the best seasonal produce available, and boasts a spectacular terrace with views over Mount Etna and the sea. There is also an intimate indoor bar that evokes the magical atmosphere of a 19th century winter garden and The Literary Terrace where you can enjoy a cocktail whilst admiring the breathtaking views. The hotel facilities also include a Wellness Centre, nestled in five acres of colourful gardens with massage rooms, a sauna, steam bath, hairdresser’s parlour and a heated outdoor swimming pool.
