DonnaCarmela Resort & Lodges

A volcanic getaway on Sicily’s historic eastern coast

As you take your first quiet step into DonnaCarmela’s subtropical gardens, nature takes the spotlight. Scents of the Mediterranean punctuate the backdrop as you wind your way through leafy lawns to your lodge. With just a handful of rooms dotted among lush greenery it’s the perfect starting point to explore eastern Sicily and the Ionian Coast.

From sea views to mountain landscapes, each unique lodge is tailored for relaxation and peaceful seclusion. Lie back in stylish comfort in the treetop Flora lodge, or one of the several spacious suites with Etna or sea-facing views. A getaway for both body and mind, the interiors bring together design and sustainability. As well as little extras: a panoramic terrace, a lava stone hot tub or your own private garden.

Reconnect with the earth and experience the living energy of the island’s active volcano. Hike, sail or quad bike around Mount Etna taking in the island of Trinacria, the Aeolian coasts and the historical hilltop town, Taormina. Top it off with a visit to nearby winery Pietradolce, on the Northern slopes of the mountain. And the summer months bring with them the Radicepura Garden Festival, synonymous with exquisite Mediterranean landscape architecture.

Enjoy your stay!

Wine Experience

From garden to garnish

Well-travelled chef, Piergiorgio Alecci, takes the helm at La Cucina di Donna Carmela. Bringing the hotel’s garden produce direct to the table, Pergiorgio’s menu is a nod to the Mediterranean sights and citrus scents that fragrance the hotel grounds. Refined combinations and Sicilian specialties are elevated by his culinary team, which includes a pastry chef and sommelier. Meanwhile in the vaults of the Wine Cellar, you can request treasures from award-winning wineries the world over, as well as the best from around the region.

Lava is all you need

Magma-formed rocks rising from the ocean at Aci Trezza; the Greco-Roman amphitheatre built into the hillside at Taormina: the eastern coast of Sicily is alive with historic beauty. And while the island’s resident celebrity, Mount Etna, tends to get the lion’s share of the glory, the cultural richness of the region is tangible. From vineyards and wine tours to boat excursions and cooking classes, you’ll return home with your heart (and your belly) full.

Food And Drinks

Pair distinctly Sicilian flavours with ‘the art of drinking’ as you experience two elegant dining options. La Cucina di Donna Carmela is an eno-gastronomic celebration of authentic Italian cuisine. Sintesi takes you on a local tasting tour using the finest home-grown ingredients. And the sophisticated Rizo Bar and Wine Cellar provides over 300 labels of fine wine to perfectly complement your meal.

Rizo Bar

Rizobar is the space dedicated to the art of drinking well. A modern and sophisticated location where you can taste a wide selection of fine distillates skilfully mixed by our barmen. The taste for aesthetics is embodied in the creativity of garnish and the elegance of every single drink.

Sintesi by the pool

Served Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Sintesi is a compendium of the best local tradition. From appetizer to dessert the Restaurant Sintesi is designed for those who love the flavors and authentic tastes. From the raw materials of our garden to the products of the area to enhance the traditions of the typical Sicilian cuisine.

La Cucina di DonnaCarmela

La Cucina di Donna Carmela - pure exaltation of the flavours of Sicily and authentic Italy thanks to our chef Piergiorgio Alecci. A work of eno-gastronomic research that goes deep and beyond the raw material declined in different tasting proposals that seal taste - understanding and experience. The secret ingredients are the love we made and the fresh products from our garden.


Combine a gentle workout in the gym with an invigorating massage, and be wrapped in wellness the Sicilian way. Spa therapists will tailor your treatment using exclusive products with sustainability and luxury at the heart. Or request DonnaCarmela’s own personal trainer for a bespoke session in the bright and modern setting of the fitness room.
