The colourful VOI Baia di Tindari Resort is a family-friendly hotel near a white sand beach in Sicily. It offers a spa, a fitness centre and sports facilities, as well as three large swimming pools, including one for children. The resort also has a designated kids’ club, nursery and outdoor playroom. There are also two restaurants and two bars on site, as well as a range of daytime activities and evening entertainment in the amphitheatre.
The Italian seaside resort lies in the north-east of Sicily, at the base of the Nebrodi mountains. Although the grounds stretch across 15 acres, the hotel’s rooms are just 150 metres away from the sandy beach, with pebbles scattered along its shoreline. The serene Marinello Lake Nature Reserve, home to the Grotta di Donna Villa cave bedecked with stalactites and stalagmites, is just under four and a half miles away – as is the church of Tindari, set upon a rock high above the sea. The picturesque Montalbano Elicona village, with its 12th Century castle, is about 14 miles away. The transfer to Catania Fontanarossa Airport (101 miles away) takes approximately two hours; and the transfer to Palermo Airport or Falcone-Borsellino Airport (129 miles away) takes approximately two hours and 20 minutes.
The hotel’s comfortable rooms are outfitted with mustard-coloured furniture and dark tiled floors. The air-conditioned accommodation comes with a TV and minibar, as standard. You can upgrade from a Classic Room to a larger Deluxe Room, which includes two complimentary cocktails and additional perks, such as free sunbed rentals closer to the shoreline. Families should opt for larger apartment-style Family Rooms with a living area, open mezzanine and a balcony or patio.

Spend sunny days at the beach, where you can borrow two sun loungers and one umbrella per room, free of charge (starting from the third row, unless staying in a Deluxe Room). You can also cool off in the hotel’s three large freshwater swimming pools, two of which have shallower areas for children. Beach towels are available for a deposit.
During your stay you can play tennis, football, petanque, ping pong and beach volleyball. The hotel’s group of animators organise games and tournaments, as well as daily activities, such as aqua aerobics and Caribbean dance sessions. You can also work out at the on-site gym or retreat to the spa with a sauna, steam bath and beauty salon.
The hotel’s three kids’ clubs suit visitors ages 3 to 17 years old. The Baby Club, 4Fun Club and BFree Club organise age-appropriate games, beach activities, cinema viewings, dance parties and music sessions. There’s also a nursery for younger guests during set hours and baby-sitting service, available for an additional fee. Kids can play at the outdoor playground and in the children’s pool, too.
Visit the concierge to coordinate cultural excursions; and, come evening, head to the amphitheatre for musicals, cabaret performances and variety shows. Otherwise, take to the piano bar. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the resort.
Two restaurants sit within the resort. The main Il Datterino restaurant serves Italian cuisine, including some Sicilian dishes, and offers gluten-free alternatives. It overlooks the pool, and your table will be assigned by your room number. Meanwhile, the open-air Ciuri Ciuri restaurant provides a selection of salads, barbecued meats and pizza. You can also grab a drink at the beach bar – or the central bar, which has live piano music during the evenings.
In response to coronavirus (COVID-19) the spa remains closed until further notice.
