UNAHOTELS Hotel Capotaormina 

Rocky revelry

Taking the classic clifftop hotel to new heights, this beautiful retreat is carved into the rock face.

UNAHOTELS Hotel Capotaormina sits on a peninsula just underneath Taormina. The main building is perched atop the headland and the seawater pool and outdoor terraces are carved into the rock face. There’s a secluded private beach tucked into the foot of the cliff, with a lift to whisk you down for days under the Sicilian sunshine.

Why we love UNAHOTELS Hotel Capotaormina

  • The extraordinary infinity pool, carved into the cliff, gives this hotel a real wow-factor

  • Bordered on all sides by the Ionian Sea, this bolthole looks out over Naxos Bay

  • A 14-person Jacuzzi at the tip of the promontory faces the hilltop town of Taormina

  • The hotel’s Le Grand Bleu restaurant can also be reached from the sea via its own jetty
