A relaxed beachfront retreat with great views that’s perfect for your romantic break

Set in a picturesque cove, the vibe at La Plage is very much one of laid-back luxury, Sicilian-style. This informal beachfront retreat feels wonderfully peaceful, yet you will be just a short walk to the cable car which will take you to the boutiques and bars of lively Taormina in just a few minutes. Back at the hotel you can while away blissful hours at the tranquil Expure Spa, choosing from an extensive menu of wellness and beauty treatments as well as a variety of rejuvenating massages.

The stunning views that accompany breakfast on the terrace make for a wonderful start to the day, whether you are planning to spend it exploring the island or just relaxing at the hotel. At the waterside Beach Club (open April to October), which has a fantastic setting on a natural bay, there are sun beds and beach umbrellas, as well as attendants who will serve you delicious drinks, gelatos and light dishes. From here you can also enjoy the breathtaking views of Isola Bella and the Mediterranean Sea. By night, the popular Fusion Restaurant is an upmarket take on street food, creatively combining the culinary traditions of Sicily with rich Mediterranean flavours.

The style of the rooms and bungalows is very modern with light tones and a splash of colour. Superior Garden View Rooms have a small outdoor terrace while Deluxe Sea View Rooms have a balcony with sea views. For more privacy and space, choose one of the bungalows nestled beneath a fragrant pine forest. Garden View Bungalows have views of a terrace while Seaside Bungalows are closer to the beach.
