This summer, one of Europe’s most storied hotels will reopen as San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel.
General Manager Lorenzo Maraviglia leads a dedicated team that is writing a new chapter in the history of San Domenico Palace. Built on the site of a 14th century Dominican convent on the Ionian coast of Sicily, the hotel first came to life in 1896 with the addition of a new building in Italian Liberty style (today’s Grand Hotel Wing) adjacent to accommodations converted from former quarters in the Ancient Convent Wing. It was a hotel of choice by royalty, nobility, artists, writers and Hollywood stars.
The Hotel combines contemporary art with antiquities and architectural relics throughout. Featuring only 111 guest rooms and suites (some with private terraces and plunge pools), the Hotel also has a spa and gym, and an infinity pool terrace.
The culinary team is helmed by Sicilian-born Executive Chef Massimo Mantarro, whose signature style is showcased at the award-winning Principe Cerami. The property is home to Anciovi, a fabulous poolside restaurant, and Rosso, the all-day-dining venue with a spectacular terrace.
More than 1,700 square metres (18,300 square feet) of beautiful indoor-outdoor event spaces invite both corporate retreats and social gatherings, and wedding couples will love the opportunity to exchange vows in this historic setting.
In celebration of its reopening this summer, San Domenico Palace is extending an Introductory Offer that includes 20 percent savings on the room rate and breakfast for two with a minimum two night stay from through November 2021.
