Built into a cliffside, overlooking Sicily’s enchanting Bay of Mermaids, the Atlantis Bay is a luxurious waterfront hotel with 76 rooms that have a private balcony or terrace and outstanding sea views. The property houses an inviting restaurant, a seafront swimming pool, a small spa and a private sunbathing platform along the bay.
This upmarket hotel lies on Sicily’s dreamy east coast, close to the historic town of Taormina − which can be easily reached via the nearby cable car. In the town, you can admire hilltop views across the Mediterranean Sea, dine at traditional restaurants and visit an ancient Greek theatre. The Taormina Giardini railway station is less than two miles away, easily linking you to other parts of Sicily. Otherwise, you can hire a bike at the hotel or book excursions to Mount Etna with the concierge team (both options are available for a supplementary charge). The bustling port city of Catania lies around 31 miles southwards, while Catania Fontanarossa Airport is situated 40 miles from the property.
The elegant rooms are decorated in neutral shades, complemented by gold accents, statuesque lamp stands, white-washed furnishings and framed sketches of seashells. Every room includes a minibar and tea and coffee making facilities, in addition to a sea-facing balcony or terrace. Meanwhile, the marble bathrooms feature bathrobes, slippers and Etro toiletries. The six types of accommodation range from spacious Superior Rooms to the most exclusive Suite Atlantide, which comes with a living room, dining area, small kitchenette and large terrace. These top-notch suites also have two bathrooms, each with a whirlpool bathtub and hammam, in addition to a round bed, corner bar and fish tank.

The outdoor swimming pool occupies one of the multi-level terraces, overlooking the turqouise bay and surrounding mountains. The wooden pool deck is attractively adorned with orange trees, bright Bougainvillea, lanterns and plush outdoor furniture. You can order food and drinks straight to your lounger with complimentary pool service, or enjoy signature cocktails on the adjacent terrace. The secluded waterfront platform is just below, providing another idyllic spot for sunbathing. It’s outfitted with ample sunloungers and umbrellas, and you can directly access the water from here.
The hotel’s wellness centre features a spa and a glass-walled gym with treadmills, exercise bikes and free weights. At the spa, you can book a revitalising facial or massage treatment (extra charges apply) and soothe your muscles in the sauna or whirlpool.
The sophisticated Ippocampo Restaurant serves a complimentary buffet breakfast, followed by an array of a la carte Mediterranean dishes for lunch and dinner. The rich breakfast spread includes a dedicated omelette station, a selection of pastries, cakes, breads, fruits, cheeses and meats. The lunch and dinner menus focus on traditional local dishes with a modern twist, all made with seasonal, high-quality ingredients. During the warmer months, the outdoor terrace is the perfect spot for a romantic sunset dinner, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and coastline’s twinkling lights. Dioniso Bar is a must for an after-dinner drinks, whether you fancy a glass of wine or a creative cocktail.
Please note that a local city tax is not included in your booking fee. This will be charged locally and is payable when you check-out of the hotel.
