Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo

‘Glamorous & Chic, Use of Sister Hotel’s Beach’

Set high in the rugged hills of Taormina on the east coast of Sicily, this iconic property has long been revered as one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats. Rooms are in the villa and main building and many feature balconies and views over the Sicilian coast, city or Mount Etna. Leisure facilities include a spa, gym, swimming pool, nearby private beach and terraced gardens. Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo has two dining options that feature Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
