Hotel Overview

Where

Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Villa Igiea is situated just outside the island’s historic capital of Palermo on the Sicilian coastline, but still within easy reach of the city’s sights.

Rooms at Villa Igiea

The luxurious rooms at the Villa Igiea are truly unique – no two are the same. Despite each having a different layout, each room shares the hotel’s Art Nouveau style, with intricate motif wallpaper and patterned drapes. Enjoy breakfast from the private balcony of a Grand Deluxe room, featuring scenic views across Palermo’s pretty harbour and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, or opt for the unique Tower Suite – full of character, this room features an octagonal living room and marble bathroom. For the ultimate treat, the spacious Presidential Suite sleeps up to three people, and has rich wood furnishings and gold-flecked fabrics, plus a fabulous terrace from which to enjoy the views.

Food and Facilities

From gourmet tasting menus to summer barbecues, the Villa Igiea treats guests to a range of delicious dining options. Enjoy the alfresco terrace setting of Donna Franca Florio overlooking the sea, where a range of Mediterranean specialities are served, or head to the Cuvée du Jour to dine beneath chandeliers on the exquisite Sicilian creations of head chef, Carmelo Trentacosti; be sure to sample the wine from the impressive wine cellar. The Pool & Grill Bar offers indulgent buffet-style food, and the Bar des Arcades piano bar is the perfect place for evening cocktails.

Activities at Villa Igiea

Enjoy uninterrupted marina views as you soak up the sun by the gorgeous pool, or head to the outdoor tennis court for a quick game. For something less strenuous, be sure to experience the Beauty Corner – the hotel’s luxury spa – where guests can choose from a range of healing treatments, including a patented technique. We love the Shiatsu Experience; a Japanese therapy designed to balance the body’s energy, detoxify and restore wellbeing. Outside the hotel, explore Palermo’s colourful markets where a blend of cultures has resulted in a variety of street food, visit the magnificent Teatro Massimo, or take a sunset cruise along the stunning Sicilian coastline.
