About San Domenico Palace, Taormina

Deluxe 5-star hotel on Sicily’s east coast

Coastal retreat

This slick resort hotel is set in an ancient Dominican monastery on the northeastern coast of Sicily. You'll be 55 km from Catania Fontanarossa Airport (CTA), and the hotel offers a limousine service upon request.

Ancient Taormina

As well as enjoying the stellar views over Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea, you can explore Taormina’s many notable historic monuments. The ancient Greek theatre is a 1-km walk, while the 13th-century cathedral and 10th-century Corvaja Palace are even closer.

Restaurant, bar, pool

This property features the Michelin-starred Principe Cerami serving Sicilian-tinged haute cuisine. You can sip sparkling wine at Cloister Lounge Bar, take a dip in the seasonal outdoor pool, and treat yourself to a facial in the Beauty Corner. Fitness facilities are also available.

Stylish decor, free WiFi

All 97 guestrooms at San Domenico Palace are decorated in Sicilian style with antique furniture, and you'll enjoy channel-hopping on a flat-screen TV as well as free WiFi. The Superior and Deluxe guestrooms come with ensuite bathtubs, and the Garden Suites have private dipping pools.

San Domenico Palace, Taormina
Terrific in Taormina!
The San Domenico Palace was terrific. The location in Taormina is perfect; right on the hill overlooking the bay. The property is large, with beautiful gardens and patios. Very comfortable. The staff are gracious and accommodating.

Very Good8.0
Breathtaking & elegant Sicilian beauty
Wonderful old Monestary in excellent location. Breakfast on the outdoor patio elegant & delicious with breathtaking views. Rooms were a nice size but plumbing could be improved. Beautiful gardens & pool; great concierge services. Overall elegant upscale experience but not 5 star.
