The updated San Domenico Palace in Sicily is to reopen this summer as a Four Seasons Hotel and Spa, following the launch of the brand’s hotels in Milan and Florence.
Located on the isle’s Ionian coast, the San Domenico Palace first opened in 1896 and was built on the site of a 14th-century Dominican convent. It offers guests a choice of 111 bedrooms and suites, some of which benefit from private terraces and plunge pools.
The hotel’s Botanica Spa will provide plant-based treatments inspired by ancient monastic herbal wisdom and local healing traditions. Its interiors have been designed in a sleek and modern aesthetic with a warm colour palette inviting guests to relax and unwind.
Guests also have use of a spacious gym and a clifftop infinity pool overlooking Taormina Bay.
