Set high in the rocky hills on the east coast of Sicily, Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo has long been known as one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats.
The first hotel to be built in Taormina, it sits in a dramatic location, directly in front of the Greek Amphitheater with sweeping views of the coastline and majestic Mount Etna.
Enjoy the beautiful subtropical gardens, savour sensational local cuisine and sit out on the Literary Terrace where generations of celebrated guests have soaked up the Sicilian sun.
Two Sicilian specialties: Eggplant Caponata and Pasta alla Norma (with tomato and eggplant).
The terrace is one of the most romantic spots in Sicily with beautiful views!
The hotel features a heated, panoramic swimming pool surrounded by beautiful terraced gardens and a Poolside Bar which is open daily in the summer for drinks, cocktails and snacks.
Relax by the pool with your favourite newspapers and magazines. Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo offers guests an exclusive digital service with over 3,000 periodicals in 18 different languages. These can easily be flipped through using e-readers available from the hotel.
Enjoy excellent Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine with unparalleled views of the sea, Mount Etna, and Cape Taormina at the signature restaurant, and enjoy a cocktail at the panoramic Literary Terrace and Bar.
Guests also have access to sister hotel, Villa Sant’Andrea, which is located at the seaside area of Taormina, with its own private beach. A private, complimentary shuttle links Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo and Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea. Departing every half-hour, the ride takes only 15 minutes. Guests of either property can enjoy complimentary boat excursions (mid-May through mid-September).
