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.

We were recommended by a local wine maker Marco de Grazia of Tenuta delle Terre Nere, that Shalai’s restaurant was one of the best in Sicily. We were spending three days in Taormina but decided that we must visit the restaurant. When we called they told us that they were having a special wine dinner of Benanti Wines, but we... More

I liked everything about this hotel. The staff is wonderful, attentive and very friendly. The wine list is amazing and the food is delicious. The room was very comfortable and the whirlpool, sauna and steam was the perfect ending after a tour of Etna. We stayed two nights and when we stay again...it will be longer.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We enjoyed the help of the staff to give us advice on things to do in the area and places to go eat. They speak well english and some french as well. We really enjoyed the spa (hot tub, turkish bath and sauna with great fresh drinks and teas), which is very relaxing... More

Stayed only one night at the Shalai - wished we could have stayed longer. We were made very welcome by the staff, our room on the first floor was magnificent - huge painted ceiling full of cherubs and swirling clouds, polished concrete floor, fab stoneclad bathroom, it was all faultless. The spa is very good too and a late afternoon... More
