Honeymoon Sicily | Taormina | Hotel San Domenico

San Domenico Palace Hotel overlooking the sea. An ancient monastery whose cloisters reveal corners of rare beauty and a fascinating fairy tale

The San Domenico Palace has since become the most famous monastery-hotel in the world. An air of enchantment lingers in the spacious white corridors where for nearly half a millennium before only the soft steps and whispered prayers of the friars were heard

The affectionate hospitality of the hotel’s antique walls, the elegance of its spacious salons, a manicured garden, a mosaic of flowers and colours, the brightness of precious table linen, the nobility of old silver with the glimmer of candles provide an enchanting setting of rare magic, a place to be discovered and experienced in order to celebrate the most exclusive of honeymoons

A luxury hotel within ancient walls where much recalls monastic life whch creates a startling contrast however it is all the more fascinating for it. Today as in times past respecting time-honoured traditions of home and hospitality the San Domenico welcomes its guests with a dedication and passion to ensure that each stay is very special, where unforgettable days are spent immersed in the restful tranquillity of a truly magical place
