In the shelter of the beautiful Baia delle Sirene, The Grand Hotel Atlantis Bay is a modern luxury hotel in a truly stunning setting. 

In the shelter of the beautiful Baia delle Sirene, the Atlantis Bay is a modern luxury hotel in a truly stunning setting. Carefully designed to make the most of its picturesque location, the hotel is arranged on elegantly shelving terraces all leading down to the crystal clear Mediterranean waters below. The interior is furnished in soft shades and natural tones of the pebbles, seashells and sunbleached driftwood that feature throughout; this, together with exposed beams, local rock and marble, creates light and elegant surroundings, evocative of the marine location.

Making the most of the hotel’s position, the extremely comfortable bedrooms are beautifully furnished with elegant touches and all enjoy their own terrace with stunning views over the bay. Offering a similar panorama, the inviting swimming pool and sunbathing deck give access to the private beach where guests can cool off in the turquoise sea. The extensive breakfast buffet and delicious baked pastries are served on the water’s edge where guests can watch the local fishermen bringing in their catch, just as they have for many centuries. And at night, the Atlantis Bay‘s highly acclaimed al fresco restaurant Ippocampo, is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner under the stars, while the piano bar offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for pre, or post dinner drinks.

Being just a short walk to the cable car up to the main town of Taormina, it is also easy to explore this historic town with it famous Greek Theatre, stylish boutiques and atmospheric, restaurant-lined piazzas.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Dating back to 4th century BC, the town of Taormina offers an eclectic mix of the old and the new. A chic resort, though unashamedly touristy, it is arguably the most enchanting town in Sicily. Her many charms include beautiful restored mediaeval buildings on winding streets, the famous passeggiata along Corso Umberto and the stunning Greek amphitheatre with spectacular views across the Gulf of Naxos and an impressive backdrop of Mount Etna. Taormina Mare, is just a short cable car ride down from the main town and a popular choice due to its beachfront location.

LOCAL BEACHES

Isola Bella Beach
The most famous of Taormina’s beaches and one of the prettiest of coves, Isola Bella Beach is connected to the little island of the same name by a thin strip of sand. Offering panoramic views and crystal clear water, this very popular, pebbly beach is connected to the town by cable car (or some 300 steps) and has sunloungers and parasols for hire.

Mazzarò
Just a short cable car ride down from the town of Taormina, Mazzarò is a pebbly cove with ample sunloungers and parasols for hire.

Giardini Naxos
Just south of Taormina, this beautiful and popular bay of white sand with some pebbly sections is the largest stretch of beach in the area. There’s a good range of facilities with sunloungers, parasols for hire, water sports, beach bars and restaurants.

FESTIVALS

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Corso Umberto

Greek Theatre
The Teatro Greco is Taormina’s leading attraction. Built in the 3rd century BC, this stunning Greek theatre offers a picturesque setting with views across the Gulf of Naxos and a backdrop of Mount Etna. Each summer the theatre is used as a venue for an impressive schedule of events; from rock concerts to opera as well as an annual film festival.

Mount Etna
Etna, which is the largest active volcano in Europe, erupts frequently and a tour up to the crater is a must for any tourist visiting the island.
