About Us

It is fitting that Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea began life in the 1950s as a hidden hideaway. Perched on an idyllic stretch of Sicilian coast, this former villa oozes glamour and old-world charm. There’s something special in the airrelaxing in such magical surroundings gives new meaning to the phrase ‘la dolce vita’.

A stay at Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea feels like reconnecting with long lost friends. We preserve the personality of an elegant private residence: you’ll be greeted with cool homemade lemonade when you arrive, and alfresco breakfasts offer a bounty of hand-picked local fruit. It’s these little details that will help you sink into a world of calm, as soothing as the sound of the ocean. Balconies are bejeweled with bright geraniums, and lush terraced gardens lead down to our picturesque pebbled beach.

The bays here are rich with enchanting caves to discover and beautiful little islands to explore. A thin strip of sand connects the beach to Isola Bella. Walk across and visit the nature reserve or enjoy the solitude of its rocky beaches. The Ionian Sea is rejuvenative. Bobbing sailboats add to the heavenly feel of the place.

Set apart from our private beach, there’s also an exclusive stretch housing six luxury cabanas. With sun-loungers and shaded sofas, they make lovely little hideaways. Should you prefer your water a little warmer, our heated infinity pool is irresistible. Enjoy the sweeping sea views as the sun sinks below the horizon.

Come evening, make the most of the surroundings by dining on the terrace. Or let us arrange private dinner on the beach—musicians will sail across the bay just to serenade you.

Restaurant Oliviero serves regional dishes that allow local ingredients to shine. Chef Aniello grills seafood freshly caught in our water—swordfish and sardines are always a favourite. Our sommelier knows the perfect wines to pair them with. He recently won best sommelier in Italy and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the excellent regional wines. Don’t leave, of course, without trying chef Michele’s pastries. The cannoli—a local delicacy made with sheep’s milk ricotta—are little mouthfuls of heaven.

After dinner, head to our open-air bar, where DJs set a vibrant scene. With the sea lapping at the shore, there’s no dance floor quite like it. Cocktail in hand, dance the night away as the stars twinkle overhead.

Best of the Best

When Goethe called Taormina a “piece of paradise on earth,” he may well have been describing Belmond Villa Sant'Andrea. Set along one of Italy's most picturesque bays on its private beach, it is just a courtesy shuttle ride away from the town center. Enjoy blissful refuge in one of 68 elegantly furnished guestrooms, and take in panoramic views from the outdoor heated swimming pool. Enjoy the morning complimentary boat cruises, relish fresh seafood at Oliviero Restaurant and relax with a soothing massage in your room or outdoors beneath an aromatic orange tree. Little guests can enjoy fun activities at the dedicated Smile Club.

Advisor Tip

Ask for dinner reservations at Oliviero; being there for sunset is a must. –Ralph Iantosca Valley Ranch, Texas

Our stay at the Bekond Villa San’t Andrea was the most relaxing part of our trip. We were upgraded immediately on our arrival with a beautiful room and sheets with a gorgeous veranda overlooking the sea. Turn down service was timely and excellent. The work out room needed a little updating but everything else was over the top wonderful ! We plan on returning !

We really enjoyed our time at the hotel. It is perfectly located on the beach and it is conveniently located (short drive into town and they provide free shuttles all day long). The godfather tour that they set up was one of our favorites (guide was awesome) and the staff was very helpful throughout our stay. The one area for improvement is the hotel is older and could use a refresh. That said our room was spacious and clean so overall we were very happy with the choice.
