In Taormina, imagine having breakfast with a view as far as the eye can see, suspended between the blue sea and the snow-capped peak of Etna with a chef preparing some of the typical Sicilian dishes and desserts in show cooking. Welcome to Taodomus boutique hotel!

The terrace of Taodomus, a small boutique hotel located on the main street of the historic center, Corso Umberto I, the heart of the city’s social life, is one of Taormina’s best kept secrets. It was love at first sight for this wonderful 360° sea view that made Olga Sturiale and her family fall in love with the location, to the point of deciding to renovate it and make it their dream “domus”.

For its creation they called interior designers, architects and artisans from the area who worked in synergy with the most important Made in Italy brands, such as Vibia, Flos and Oty, to create environments with hand-designed and hand-made furniture that contain works of art by Sicilian artists, including Massimiliano Frumenti and Mimmo Guerrera.

Look at the sea, experience the old center, be guided to discover the wonders of Taormina in what we have thought of down to the smallest comfort details as a contemporary “domus”.

(Olga Sturiale)

There are 9 rooms, each different from the other, some with a terrace overlooking the Corso, all with refined custom-made furnishings, pure cotton linen, linen curtains and ceramic bathrooms finished in Italian marble with particular attention to respect for the environment in the choice of toilet products.

All rooms are acoustically isolated, so you can enjoy the magic of the historic center of Taormina, while at the same time guaranteeing the silence necessary for relaxation. From the concierge service to the amenities, everything is, in fact, taken care of down to the smallest detail thanks to Olga’s great passion for 5-star hospitality.

Open upon reservation and subject to availability also to non-guests of the structure, Taodomus is famous for its vegetarian breakfast with a view, also cruelty free, which is served every morning on the terrace on the top floor of the hotel.

Here the resident chef Andrea Graffagnino stages a real show cooking show in which, in addition to Sicilian citrus jams, organic juices, different types of traditional bread, homemade cakes and biscuits, fresh seasonal fruit, you can order lots of à la carte delights such as crepes, waffles or avocado toasts.

In the evening the panoramic terrace becomes the perfect place for a romantic aperitif for both hotel guests and external guests with reservations.

Taodomus is special in all seasons, even in winter because it is the only place in the center of Taormina where you can have breakfast in the heated outdoor room overlooking the sea even on the coldest days.

The Secret

It is no coincidence that Taormina was born as a winter tourist destination, so much so that its hotels usually opened in October and closed in June.
