The room was lovely with a beautiful painted ceiling and a private deck. However no English TV, the Spa was expensive as well as drinks in the bar. If you want English TV you must go to the common room. This was one of our more expensive hotels on our tour of Sicily and although the staff was nice I...

Expert staff is extremely accommodating to every need of the client. Had a few very interesting dishes that were a nice deviation from the standard. Dinner lasted three hours, though, so be prepared to be there the entire night.

Very beautiful and peaceful place, located in a very small - and authentic Sicilian village. Resto and hotel are quite pricey but worth it. Unable to use the spa facilities as all was fully booked. Very professional and helpful staff

We stayed for a night at Shalai and it was like stepping into another world. It is pricey but was the perfect place to relax after a busy driving tour. There is nothing much to do in Linguaglossa though so be warned, you'll spend most of your time in the hotel. Unfortunately there isn't a sunny outside space which would...

...and we were certainly not disappointed! We decided to stay in the quaint village of Lingualossa. Based at the foot of Mt. Etna, Lingualossa is set amongst beautiful countryside but not too far from the beach. We chose to visit Giardini Naxos for dinner and it was only a short distance to drive. The Shalai resort can be found in...

Spent the last 5 days at this near perfect hotel. Booked the superior room, which was just that. Huge bed, rainfall shower, tv, wi if, small closet, drawers, safe and shower. Only missing a full length mirror. The food was perfect and not too expensive. There were three vegetarian options and each meal was cooked beautifully. Each evening the chef...

Wonderful quiet little spa with excellent therapists. Small space but sufficient for our party of 7. The lunch we had in the restaurant was to die for! Great for a girls day or a special event. Use Soul Space products for therapies.

The hotel is very clean, quite modern (has all been re-done inside) and staff are friendly. The reason I did not like the hotel was 1) there isn't an elevator so you have to walk up the stairs and the staff never offered to carry bags -given my asthma it was not great we were put two stories up. 2)...

The Shalai Hotel (Shalai Resort) is one of the most special hotels I know. I have been coming here for a few years on a regular basis and it is always perfect. The hotel is in one of the most beautiful towns in Sicily, on the slopes of Etna, on the confines of one of Italy's most interesting wine regions....
