A beautiful boutique hotel in the sleepy island of Salina, just off the coast of Sicily, Hotel Signum’s stunning spa makes it an excellent retreat for those looking for wellness and relaxation. The hotel’s historic building has been carefully restored in order to showcase not only the original elements of the building, but also the unique character of Salina and its natural scenery. The use of heavy local stone, wrought iron and majolica tiling has resulted in a very special and picturesque interior.
The hotel’s restaurant specialises in the unique flavours of the island, and the spa makes use of the ancient healing techniques of the Aeolian thermal baths, thought to be amongst the most ancient in Europe. The hotel’s location gives it excellent access to the island’s rich hiking trails, stunning scenery and gorgeous beaches.
The hotel’s bar serves bespoke cocktails created using herbs and fruits from the hotel’s own garden, particularly enjoyable while watching the setting sun burnish the sea into shining bronze.
Martina Caruso serves fresh, light dishes inspired by the flavours and ingredients of Salina. The island is particularly known for its high-quality seafood, as well as highly flavourful capers that inject a dash of salt and flavour into traditional dishes. Pair your meal with a bottle from the restaurant’s impressive wine cellar.
The simple, but charming rooms at Hotel Signum are named after flowers and plants from the island and each room is as unique. The rooms in this boutique hotel are filled with antiques and some have balconies and terraces with views of the garden and the sea.
Cool off during the hot summer months in Hotel Signum’s beautiful pool, surrounded by fragrant lemon trees and boasting magnificent views of the sea and neighbouring island of Stromboli. The tranquil garden is full of hibiscus, caper and jasmine flowers, perfect for relaxing with a good book beneath the shade of one of the lemon trees.
Hotel Signum has one of the most exclusive spas in the Aeolian islands, famous for their mineral-rich geothermic waters. The spa’s philosophy centres around traditional techniques and a bond with the natural landscape. Experience crenotherapy in the outdoor mineral pools, where a high presence of magnesium, sulphur and iodine gives a wide range of health benefits. The spa also offers a number of treatments and massages using natural essences.
The island is a beautiful, sleepy idyll that has somehow remained untouched by the crowds that flock to neighbouring Stromboli, despite being the setting for the internationally-acclaimed 1994 film, Il Postino. Hiking trails snake through the island’s ancient woodlands and volcanic crags, while there are a number of beaches, from the pebbled haven of Scario to the beautiful black sand of Rinella beach, where the waters are particularly good for snorkelling.
