The Grand Hotel Minareto is a luxurious seaside resort that is located in front of Ortigia Island with a reserved beach that is met by the crystal clear waters of the Plemmirio Nature Reserve.

In total there are 93 well-appointed rooms and 4 suites and these are spread throughout the splendid Mediterranean grounds in exclusive cottages. Created by master craftsmen this accommodation holds a high level of privacy and comfort whilst incorporating hi-tech amenities and balconies from which guests may enjoy the sunsets over the Ortigia Island.

The classic rooms have been designed to portray luxury with exquisite touches such as Persian carpets, satin sheets, private terraces, individually controlled air conditioning with air recycling, in-room computer, mini bar, 32-inch LCD TV and safe. Bathrooms have been created with the use of the highest quality marble and are equipped with exclusive amenity kits with 8 different products from Transvital and a soft hand-embroidered bathrobe from Rivolta Carmignani.

The amazing suites at the Grand Hotel Minareto are in a league of their own, all different from the next and situated on a small cliff with a sheer drop to the sea. Each has a large terrace with sea views and king sized beds as well as all of the luxury amenities offered with the classic rooms. One of the suites may be booked with a Jacuzzi that looks out to the Maniace Castle, Ortigia's monumental gem.

The swimming pool is at the centre of the resort and is the perfect place to soak up Sicily's sun. Comfortable EMU loungers are located around the pool along with umbrellas, pool towels and there is a seating area where you can enjoy cuisine from the Grill & Bar Restaurant.

The Delle Latomie Beach is easily reached from each of the hotel's rooms and comfortable loungers are positioned along the sea which is every bit as enticing as that of a Caribbean Island.

The Minareto Spa provides a full menu of beauty treatments using the latest generation of products designed to regenerate the body and soul. Two exclusive treatment rooms have sea views for you to relax in a unique ambience.

The Minareto Gym is equipped with state of the art Technogym equipment and is open 24/7. If you wish you can also embark on a scenic route around the Plemmirio Protected Marine Area with the hotel's complimentary bicycle rental service.

A variety of restaurants and bars are housed within the resort to satisfy your taste buds and these include Chef Roberto Donzella's Nesos Restaurant Siracusa where the elegant ambience is accompanied by flavours of the Mediterranean. Guests may also enjoy romantic candle-lit dinners at the Nesos Terrace or by the sea on the Titanic Terrace.

Luxurious weddings can also be arranged at any time of year at the Grand Hotel Minareto and incorporate everything from flowers to the wedding cake and from music to an exquisite menu created by the resort's chef.
