With an exclusive location on the Bay of Mazzarò, considered one of the most beautiful in all of Italy, the elegant Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea nestles on its own private beach with new luxurious cabanas, facing the dazzling aquamarine sea. Built by an aristocratic family in 1830, surrounded by lush, subtropical gardens, the hotel retains all the charm of a private residence, enriched by paintings and antiques. The décor of the 64 rooms and suites reflects the nautical character and marine location of the hotel, with ample use of local stone and Sicilian materials and fabrics, creating a light, relaxed and serene atmosphere. The Oliviero Restaurant, on a panoramic terrace overlooking the gorgeous sea, is known for its fish and seafood specialties and traditional Mediterranean cuisine. The Bar, located on the outdoor terrace, is the perfect place to enjoy a drink, a snack or a light lunch by the beach. A Beach Bar and a Pool Bar in the new pool area are also available for a refreshing drink after a swim. Guests can benefit of the complimentary shuttle to the centre of Taormina, as well as the daily mini-cruise by private boat to explore the beauties of the coast (available during summer). The wellness centre offers a range of exclusive treatments for the ultimate of relax, while the fitness centre is fully equipped with the latest technology. The Smile Club with an English-speaking supervisor is available to entertain the younger guests with lots of fun and exciting activities. Guests at Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea can enjoy all the facilities of Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, its sister property located in the centre of Taormina next to the Greek Theatre.

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better by staying at the other Belmond in Taormina, it did. Different experience as this one is on the beach but so beautiful from the stunning sea view room right on the ocean all the way to the amazing restaurant. The service was impeccable from everyone. Close to Isolla Bella which is a must visit.

Beautiful setting with a great team which made for a memorable stay. Amazing views from the room. Enjoyed the breakfast service with a broad spread. The complimentary boat trip is also good fun and worthwhile.

Writing this review with our hearts filled with so much happiness and love! We got married at this hotel and also stayed for our honeymoon and everything was 10/10!! Working with Marilisa and the hotel staff was a dream come true and everything turned out perfect. We got married on the beach during sunset with a small intimate group and couldn’t have asked for anything more. The location on the water is ideal, a private beach, lots of options for day fun, Taormina city center was close by just a cable car ride up into town or use of the hotel shuttle. The suite we stayed in was clean large and made us feel right at home. The terrace was Beautiful with a view of the bay and you could hear the waves when you were falling asleep. Anything you wanted or needed was possible. Breakfast daily had a ton of choices and there was music every night at the hotel bar to unwind and have a few drinks. The staff were all super friendly and helpful and all spoke English! Giuseppe from guest reservations was so easy and fun to work with as well, is willing to help arrange anything you need(even a private boat tour for a large group!). The infinity pool was also the perfect temperature and there were always chairs available on the beach. Highly recommend spending a few days (or more!) at this hotel, it’s definitely luxury at its finest :) We will definitely be back!

Dear guillermov670, Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Tripadvisor. I share your frustration regarding the request to book some services in advance, nevertheless the safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees is our top priority, therefore we remain uncompromising in our approach to COVID-19 prevention. The gym is available by appointment to avoid gatherings and to allow regular sanitization of the equipment, likewise the complimentary shuttle service should be booked in advance to ensure social distancing. I'm sorry to learn that the request for courtesy water in your room was not handled properly since we provide complimentary water in each room, by the beach and pool. Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience. We receive many compliments and positive feedback about the quality of our food proposal, they are also mentioned in this forum. I can assure you that we only use fresh raw materials of the highest quality. Our security staff is well trained, according to our records the matter was handled with care and professionalism, If you would like to discuss it in a more detailed manner, feel free to reach out to me at your earliest convenience. I hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back, to restore your confidence in the quality of service we offer. Best regards Giovanni Nastasi General Manager
