...and we were certainly not disappointed! We decided to stay in the quaint village of Lingualossa. Based at the foot of Mt. Etna, Lingualossa is set amongst beautiful countryside but not too far from the beach. We chose to visit Giardini Naxos for dinner and it was only a short distance to drive. The Shalai resort can be found in... More

Spent the last 5 days at this near perfect hotel. Booked the superior room, which was just that. Huge bed, rainfall shower, tv, wi if, small closet, drawers, safe and shower. Only missing a full length mirror. The food was perfect and not too expensive. There were three vegetarian options and each meal was cooked beautifully. Each evening the chef... More

Wonderful quiet little spa with excellent therapists. Small space but sufficient for our party of 7. The lunch we had in the restaurant was to die for! Great for a girls day or a special event. Use Soul Space products for therapies.

The hotel is very clean, quite modern (has all been re-done inside) and staff are friendly. The reason I did not like the hotel was 1) there isn't an elevator so you have to walk up the stairs and the staff never offered to carry bags -given my asthma it was not great we were put two stories up. 2)...

The Shalai Hotel (Shalai Resort) is one of the most special hotels I know. I have been coming here for a few years on a regular basis and it is always perfect. The hotel is in one of the most beautiful towns in Sicily, on the slopes of Etna, on the confines of one of Italy's most interesting wine regions.... More

The hotel is strategically located in a peaceful village away from Sicily's tourist resorts yet very close to Taormina, Catania and safely close to mount Etna. The design is exquisitely soft and relaxing. The room perfectly clean and delicately scented creating a beautiful atmosphere throughout. The restaurant's clean setting and soft lighting complements perfectly with the food presentation. We stayed... More

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Beautifully designed and well thought through. The restaurant was very good and the breakfast just lovely with freshly baked pastries and breads, fresh fruit, cheese etc. It is a treasure tucked away in a quiet road so peaceful too.

Loved this small hotel. Everything was just right - perfectly designed, amazing bed and linens, great toiletries, beautiful rainshower, perfect lighting, lovely room scent etc. Would have loved to have tried the restaurant but there was no one dining when we were there and that didn't create the best atmosphere. Very nice breakfast on the inner courtyard.
