Welcome to Taormina. Welcome to the San Domenico Palace Hotel: a natural terrace among gardens in perpetual bloom overlooking the sea.

The ancient monastery's cloisters reveal corners of rare beauty. Reality turns into a fascinating fairy tale made of vivid sunlight rays, light sea breezes, scents of citrus fruits.

The cordial hospitality of the hotel's antique walls, the elegance of its spacious salons, a neat garden, a mosaic of flowers and colours, the brightness of precious table linen, the nobility of old silver, the glimmer of candles, rich and sumptuous buffets at the Principe Cerami Reastaurant awarded with two Michelin Stars. An enchanting setting of rare magic, a jewel, a place of joy and precious emotions, to be discovered and experienced in order to celebrate the most exclusive events. Far from common places.

The San Domenico Palace has become the most famous monastery-hotel in the world. An air of enchantment lingers in the spacious white corridors where, a half millennium ago, only the soft steps and whispered prayers of the friars were heard.

A luxury hotel within ancient walls where much recalls monastic life creates a startling contrast, making all more fascinating and exciting. Today as well as in the past, with regard to time-honored home and hospitality traditions, the San Domenico welcomes its guests with devotion and passion willing to ensure them a very special stay, where unforgettable moments are spent immersed in the harmony of a truly magical place.

The 105 Rooms and Suites are located in two different wings: The Garden Wing, built within the former 14th century Convent and the Grand Hotel Wing, a marvellous building in liberty style, added to the hotel on 1896. Exclusive and charming, the ancient monk's cells in the Old Monastery wing. Intimate, rich of ancient memories, laden with contemplative silences preserved for centuries.
