Grand Hotel Timeo, A Belmond Hotel, Taormina

With simply stunning views and an even more special setting, the majestic Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo offers luxury both inside the hotel and out, on the peaceful island of Sicily.

The Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo is rated as one of Italy’s most glamorous retreats, and is a worthy destination on any luxury, tailor-made holiday to Sicily. Stroll amongst its fragrant, terraced gardens - or relax as you take early morning coffee on your private balcony - and you will inevitably be drawn towards the view of the ancient Greek Theatre. It is the classic bowl shape and stands on a high promontory, with the glittering blue sea forming the perfect theatrical backdrop.

The hotel – as its title suggests – is similarly grand. The Literary Terrace, for example, lends itself to relaxation and contemplation of the magnificent views. To-die-for panoramas are a theme here; the restaurant specialises in regional Sicilian and modern Mediterranean dishes served against mouth-watering views of Mount Etna and Capo Taormina.

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
