Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea sits on the Sicilian coastline of Taormina Mare, its terraced gardens leading down to the pebbled beach - just a short cable-car ride from the amphitheatre, shops and dramatic outlooks of the clifftop town.

Rooms at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea

Most of the hotel's luxurious and vibrant rooms and suites look out over the beach and pristine waters of the private Bay of Mazzaro. Many feature expansive balconies and terraces, where you can enjoy an al fresco breakfast overlooking the sparkling sea.

Food & Drink

Dining at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea is an elegant and timeless experience. Freshly-caught seafood is naturally the speciality, but the hotel's chefs are also known for their innovative takes on Mediterranean classics - all topped off in the evenings with live music under the stars.

Dine on the terrace at the Oliviero restaurant under the shade of the pine trees, and during the summer, you can enjoy a light lunch by the beach, choosing from salads and pastas, and locally-caught shellfish cooked to order over a charcoal fire.


Encircled by a rocky promontory, the peaceful cove at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea is great for snorkelling and diving, and beside it is a gorgeous infinity pool which basks in a total suntrap. There are private beach cabanas to relax in, and thanks to the butler service, you can have fruit, snacks and drinks bought to you during the day.

For more rel
axation, unwind in the spa, whose treatments feature fragrant sandalwood and jasmine - indulge in a massage in a gazebo overlooking the sea.

Activities at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea

For real drama, head up to clifftop Taormina (taking a cable car is romantic, but if you want to avoid the tourists, the hotel also offers a shuttle service). Here, you can sip a cappuccino on the winding streets whilst enjoying the most stunning views possible of Mount Etna and the sweeping coastline, and pick up some unique finds in the stylish boutiques - and don't miss the chance to catch a show in the ancient Greek theatre: a truly memorable experience.
