Honeymoon Sicily | Taormina | Grand Hotel Timeo

Set high in the rocky hills of Taormina on the east coast of Sicily the Grand Hotel Timeo has long been known as one of Italy’s most glamorous

The first hotel to be built in Taormina it sits in the most perfect location, directly in front of the Greek Theatre with sweeping views of the Ionian coastline and majestic Mount Etna

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

Built on the cliffs of Mount Tauro, the town affords spectacular views of the coast with its rugged rocks, sandy coves and crystal waters. Timeo offers a prime viewing spot for sweeping panoramas of Mount Etna Europe’s largest volcano

At night the lights twinkling in Capo Taormina — the seaside area of the town and the curve of the bay of Giardini Naxos are inexpressibly beautiful

Suites and Rooms

All 70 rooms and suites at Grand Hotel Timeo are stylishly decorated with Italian flair. Most have beautiful terraces or balconies

The suites evoke the opulent Italian Baroque style, while the Presidential Suite enjoys the added attraction of an expansive terrace with a summerhouse, a lounge, dining room and small hydro-massage swimming pool

Goethe and DH Lawrence

Guy de Maupassant wrote in 1885, Taormina is “a landscape in which you can find all that seems to be created on earth to seduce the eyes, the mind and fantasy”

Great writers such as Goethe and DH Lawrence were equally besotted — in fact, Lawrence’s most famous novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, was said to be inspired by an Englishwoman living in Taormina

Timeo Restaurant

Boasting one of the most spectacular backdrops of Mount Etna and Capo Taormina the Timeo Restaurant matches its location with outstanding Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine.

The menu focuses on mouth-watering seasonal produce with local specialties including Pachino cherry tomatoes or capers from Salina. Fine regional wines such as Nero d’Avola and Moscato di Pantelleria conclude this gastronomic experience
