Sikelia, Pantelleria

Italy

It’s hard to find a property which values seclusion and all-out luxury, but also has heart and soul.

Introducing Sikelia: a striking hotel in an extraordinary location on the secret Italian island Pantelleria, which you access by flying first to Sicily then onwards. However, this wild volcanic isle is closer to African shores, and its influence can be felt on warm breezes and star-filled night skies. Expansive bronze doors usher you into the cool, white-washed retreat where a curvy ice-blue pool shimmers invitingly. Suites are carved from the ancient Arab dammusi – stone dwellings with arched ceilings – and décor is pleasingly-subdued.
It’s isolated here and you’ll find your own fun rambling over smooth volcanic rock to swim in coves or taking an island spa safari through hot springs,
a natural cave sauna and mud wraps from the lake. Back at the hotel, feast on Arab-inspired Sicilian cuisine, and don’t miss the island’s own dessert wine.
Places like Sikelia don’t come from nothing. This project was born out of love from charismatic owner, Guilia, a former basketball player whose energy
coats the luxury retreat like magic dust. This is something special – go now.
