Palermo pleasures in an Art Nouveau palace
Designed by noted architect Ernesto Basile more than a century ago, the Art Nouveau palace today is a world-class hotel, perched on a cliff looking out towards the Sea of Palermo. Often noted as Palermo’s finest hotel, the visitor will be first swept into a gracious and grand welcoming lobby with many touches recalling the Belle Epoque period. From there, the breeze will blow toward the terrace where views out to sea are magnificent.
Exotic and fragrant gardens surround the property and there’s a delightful free-form swimming pool with more extravagant view out to the sparkling waters.
The guest rooms are large and spacious, many with balconies looking out to the gardens or to the sea. Warm tones and rich fabrics set an atmosphere of complete relaxation.
Mediterranean fare plus top notch service will enchant diners at the Villa Igiea restaurant. The hotel also welcomes business meeting and special occasion events with meeting rooms and special programs.
