Gruppo UNA

And it is also on Sicily that you can find some of the best sea hotels in Italy. With four Gruppo UNA hotels on the island to choose from, you're never far from a beautiful beach. 

Luxury hotels in Italy by the sea.

Indulge yourself in luxury hotels in Sicily with a stay in the Palace Catania | UNA Esperienze or choose from one of our other Sicily hotels near the sea and beach.  When you book our hotels in Sicily, we guarantee you a warm Italian welcome, stylish rooms and, of course, delicious cuisine which focuses on local ingredients and specialities.

Palace Catania | UNA Esperienze.

A few minutes drive south of Catania is La Playa: 18 kilometres of sandy beach that stretches along the coastline of Sicily. With a lively atmosphere both day and night, this beach is popular with both locals and visitors. It also offers a magnificent view of Mount Etna. Further north is Riviera dei Ciclopi with its stunning volcanic scenery and crystal clear waters -- perfect for scuba diving. Lying in a protected marine environment, this beach is a quieter destination than La Playa.

Staying in luxury hotels in Catania puts you within just a few minutes drive of these beaches. The Palace Catania | UNA Esperienze is a 4-star hotel set in a historic building that has been restored to give contemporary style and comfort without losing its cultural heritage.

Sip cocktails in the spacious Etnea Roof Bar and Restaurant which offers breath-taking views of Etna and the sea or enjoy spending time in the Turkish bath and fitness room. When its time to dine, you can savour the true tastes of Sicily either in the Etnea Roof Bar or in the modern and minimalist UNA Restaurant. For coffee and get-togethers, pop into the UNA Café: a welcoming space finished in warm Mediterranean colours.

UNAHOTELS One Siracusa.

The shoreline of Siracusa is bordered by some of the most beautiful beaches in Italy, so it's a real pleasure to stay in hotels near the sea here. Near the town itself, you can find Siracusa Beach or take a leisurely walk to Solarium Ru Frati, admiring open-air art installations along the way. On the nearby island of Ortigia is Solarium Forte Vigliena. Here, the crystalline clear waters more than makeup for the rocky beach. 

The UNAHOTELS One Siracusa offers luxurious rooms decorated in a contemporary style and a range of guest facilities. These include the renowned Akademia Restaurant where, after your day at the beach, you can dine on local dishes finished with a gourmet touch. End the evening with drinks in the Sky Roof where regular nightlife events are held. The hotel also has a fitness suite and wellness centre.

UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicilia.

The beach at Giardini Naxos is a long stretch of golden sand alternated with pebbles. The Mediterranean water is clear while lush plant growth adds extra colour to this popular beach. There are plenty of bars and restaurants, while after sunset, it is famous for its nightlife.

While most of Giardini Naxos beach is public when you stay at the UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicilia, you can enjoy your own stretch of family-friendly private beach. As well as the beach, you have a choice of four swimming pools, sporting activities, a mini-club for children, a beauty centre and a private citrus park to stroll through. If all of this beachside activity has given you an appetite, the UNAHOTELS Naxos Beach Sicilia also has four bars and restaurants offering a unique taste of true Sicily.

UNAHOTELS Capotaormina.

Take the cable car from Taormina to enjoy spectacular panoramic views as it whisks you to Mazzarò, a small beach just north of Isola Bella. Its rocky shoreline is dotted with small bathing pools and beach areas perfect for the whole family. Mazzarò is also within a leisurely walk of the UNAHOTELS Capotaormina.

This hotel sits on a cliff, making it one of the most panoramic hotels in Sicily with spectacular views of Mount Etna.
