Like many, after this difficult year we needed to get away knowing that we had a guaranteed luxury, relaxing experience - there was only one choice. Perfect idyllic get-away, stunning location, great staff and delicious food. Our sea-view room had a hot tub and the most amazing views across to Lipari. My wife and I agreed that this is a place to keep coming back to for a few days each year. OK so the journey via Palermo takes a couple of hours and then the hydrofoil, but all part of the experience! Therasia is a 10/10 favourite for sure.
It never fails: Excellence is a way of life
Visiting the island of Vulcano is a must every year and the Therasia Resort is always part of the plan. Coming back this year I have done: 1) spa, 2) Russuri terrace and restaurant, 3) Cappero restaurant. At the Spa, Maria fixed in two sessions a severe contraction of the lower limbs coming from too much wakeboarding at sunset during the whole summer - I am not so young any longer unfortunately. At the spa I also bought the most amazing swimming suit and pareo. Graziano at Russuri always gave me the best advices which led me to taste the best pasta of the year: he has been there for many years and “you just need to ask him what to eat and drink: I never regret asking him for advice in the last 3-5 years. The Cappero restaurant does not need any introduction as it is an international attraction for those of us with a sensibly sofisticate palate. Careful because it is always fully booked and you are lucky if you find a space to sit: the evening becomes magic and the education you gain every time is for a life time. We usually book well in advance to make sure we can have at least one night there: when sitting at Cappero with my wife.... we go back a long way, and I can’t think of any better evening with her - after spending my summer in Lio and Hart in Ibiza - and using Zuma in London as our usual. This is another level of experience: much better, you can’t miss it. I am sure the consolidation of this service comes with the most experienced direction and I am very grateful to Mr Trani for always being there for us. I read his style as “think big, plan even better and behave simple” type of approach. This is to me a transparent justification as why Therasia is the best I can get: I can touch the sea with a finger stretch, I live the most stunning view in the Mediterranean sea and meanwhile I can also get anything I wish, but without needing to do much to get it: it will just come straight to my hand and from the most experienced and elegant member of staff. At Therasia education and culture lead the way to luxury and heath: I can’t gather any better combination for a magic summer holiday with my wife.
Poor service at a beautiful resort
PROS: the grounds are beautiful, pools and sunset views absolutely stunning, the shuttle is very useful. The reception staff were very helpful. CONS: our room was dark (the garden view room), the service at the bar is ridiculously slow (expect to wait an hour for two drinks), the complimentary mini bar is a nice idea but only includes water and peach juice (why not include something more interesting?!), the food at the main restaurant was average with no real vegan restaurants - at a five star resort with international guests I would expect more modern and interesting food.
Amazing Resort with a Stunning View!
We had a fantastic stay at the Therasia Resort. The grounds and view are simply stunning. The staff was incredibly helpful, Michelle was key in organizing our excursions for the week. We did the tasting menu in the restaurant Il Cappero, it was delicious! They modified some of the dishes as I prefer a vegetarian menu. The shuttle to the port works well and is very convenient. The room was well appointed, however, the King size bed was too hard for our liking, however, this was remedy by the front desk who requested to add a pillow top which made the bed very comfortable. The fridge in the room is complementary and refilled every day which is so convenient. Thank you all for a wonderful stay!
The best hotel I’ve ever stayed
Wonderful Hotel, amazing sunsets, fantastic Staff (the bar staff, Shuvo and Paula were wonderful, as was the pianist / singer whose name I forget, sorry!) Great Restaurants, had the best meal I’ve ever had in ll Cappero (and the Staff made a fuss of me in there on my birthday). Stayed 7 nights, On a very cheap deal with Fleetway Travel . Not much on Vulcano but a great base for exploring the Islands. Just Perfect.
