Set high in the rocky hills on the east coast of Sicily, Grand Hotel Timeo has long been known as one of Italy's most glamorous retreats.
The first hotel to be built in Taormina, it sits in the most perfect location, directly in front of the Greek Theatre. Sweeping views of the coastline and majestic Mount Etna stretch out beyond.
As with many Orient-Express hotels, this heritage building is a landmark within its destination. Let Sicily come to you as you admire its gardens, savour sensational local cuisine and sit out on the Literary Terrace where generations of celebrated guests have gathered in the sun.
The heated, panoramic swimming pool is surrounded by beautiful terraced gardens. Among the facilities are a Poolside Bar, which is open daily in the summer and offers a wide variety of drinks, cocktails and snacks.
Guests are invited to use the private beach belonging to sister property, Villa Sant'Andrea, which is located on the beautiful Bay of Mazzarò in Taormina Mare. A complimentary shuttle service is available. Sun loungers and umbrellas are provided by the hotel and from June to September the Beach Bar serves a variety of drinks, smoothies, ice creams and snacks.
Our guests can use the Fitness Centre, offering new equipment by Technogym with integrated TV sets, and a variety of exercise machines.
