Welcome to Luxury Castle, charming hotel and SPA, a princely baroque residence dating back to the end of the XVII century.

This Boutique Hotel stands on the Ionian sea, a few kilometres away from the romantic town of Taormina.

This stunning baroque castle is perfect for sophisticated wedding ceremonies followed by dinner in the atmospheric castle grounds. By night, floodlighting provides a breathtaking vista, and we offer both indoor and outdoor dining experiences for the reception, with a private beach for extra-special wedding dances.

All the team work tirelessly to ensure that your day is exactly as you imagine and are always happy to accommodate specific requests.

The reception halls, the pergolas and the wine bar, an original wine press at the heart of the castle which today has been converted into a unique wine lounge; are all finely decorated whilst maintaining a Sicilian baroque style. The castle’s communal areas encapsulate all the warmth and feeling of historical buildings with a modern elegance. The grand building is illuminated by warm, welcoming lights creating a soft and soothing light throughout.

The 30 rooms meet the requirements of the finest 4-star hotels and offer a beautiful Mediterranean garden surroundings instead of the traditional carpeted hallway.

The Castle is a place with a notable past and the excitement of being so close to this history can be felt when one wanders through the archways of the castle and over the cobbled pathways. This sense of history is respectfully combined with the pleasure and warmth of traditional Sicilian hospitality.
