  • About this holiday

    On the spectacular island of Vulcano, the Therasia Resort is surrounded on all sides by stunning scenery. The designs of the rooms channel the sublime space of the hotel's exterior, encouraging appreciation of the magnificent views across the other Aeolian Islands, and stirring up a feeling of tranquillity and relaxation. Outside, the infinity pool seems to link the terrace to the sea, while the rocky coast is only a short walk away. Make the most of the renowned spa, taking luxury and relaxation to the next level, before heading out into the diverse landscape to track down the most enchanting view. Easy access by hydrofoil to the other Aeolian Islands makes this a convenient and satisfying stop on a touring holiday, though we would recommend a longer stay at this beautiful resort.

    Our opinion

    A wonderful hotel, perfect for some serious relaxation on the beautiful island of Vulcano.

    Hotel description

    With spectacular views out to sea and across the neighbouring Aeolian Islands of Alicudi, Filicudi, Salina, Lipari, Stromboli and Panarea, the Therasia Resort has possibly one of the most spectacular positions of any hotel we have seen. Vulcano is the southern most island of the Aeolian archipelago, separated from Lipari by a tiny strait, and is just a 45 minute hydrofoil ride from the port of Milazzo in Sicily. The hotel has been recently renovated and the owners have made good use of the local volcanic stone from Etna, brightly coloured terracotta tiles from Sicily in the bathrooms and local whitewashed walls to reflect the sun’s rays. The 97 rooms and suites are furnished in a simple, but comfortable style and are decorated in cool cream and pastel shades. The bathrooms are decorated in traditional terracotta tiles in different shades and colours. The interior public spaces of the hotel are airy and light with comfortable sofas and chairs in the open-plan lounges and there is a lovely poolside bar, along with the terrace bar, Il Faraglione, with views out over the striking Faraglione Rocks. The hotel has a private rocky bathing area and access to the sea, with sun loungers and umbrellas as well as a tempting infinity pool. The hotel has two restaurants offering a choice between fine dining, L’Arcipelago, and the less formal Il Cappero restaurant, both serving excellent Sicilian dishes, using local ingredients. This is a truly remarkable hotel in terms of position and due to the volcanic nature of the island, there are numerous walks available, even up the crater of the volcano itself. However, the sea is always the main attraction and numerous water sports are available nearby from sailing to scuba diving.
