Hotel Information

  • Description


Set high in the rocky hills on the east coast of Sicily, 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 the most perfect location, directly in front of the Greek Theatre. Sweeping views of the coastline and majestic Mount Etna stretch out beyond.

As with many Belmond hotels, this heritage building is a landmark within its destination. Let Sicily come to you as you admire its gardens, savour sensational local cuisine and sit out on the Literary Terrace where generations of celebrated guests have gathered in the sun.

The Restaurant: Boasting one of the most magical backdrops, a timeless panorama in which Mount Etna and Capo Taormina are the stars of the show, the Restaurant matches its location with spectacular Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine.
The menu focuses on mouthwatering seasonal produce and local specialties, including Pachino cherry tomatoes, Bronte pistachios, capers from Salina, red garlic from Nubia, and fine regional wines such as Nero d’Avola and Moscato di Pantelleria.
Pool Snack Restaurant: In the shade of a cool pergola, next to the swimming pool, guests will find the casual restaurant, the Pool Snack Bar, open at lunch time.
A wide range of light snacks, brick-oven pizzas, a salad buffet and a selection of freshly caught fish can be enjoyed overlooking the enchanting panorama of the volcano and the sea below.
The Literary Terrace And The Bar: The "Literary Terrace" is the ideal spot from which to admire the stunning panorama of Mount Etna and the Bay of Taormina while sipping a Bellini or a Limoncello.
The indoor bar is a masterpiece of Sicilian art and design, evoking the magical atmosphere of a 19th-century winter garden.
Wellness: Immersed in the perfumes and colours of the five acres of the hotel gardens is the Wellness Centre. With signature products from Aromatherapy Associates and Panpuri made from local flowers and fruit essences, such as Neroli oil, this is the place to pamper your body in true Sicilian style.
One of the most precious essences, Neroli is the essential oil produced from the blossom of the orange tree. It gives a sense of peace and wellbeing, calming both mind and heart. A refreshing and distinctive aroma that contributes to inner relaxation and stimulates creativity.
