Eremo della Giubiliana



Hundreds of years ago, Eremo della Giubiliana was the site of a fortress built to repel the raids of Turkish pirates. After that, it became a convent under the rule of the Knights of the Order of Saint Giovanni. Today, however, it’s something very different indeed: a five-star luxury hotel.

Eremo della Giubiliana dominates the Sicilian coast. Its thick white walls and imposing towers can be seen from miles around, and the views from the hotel itself stretch out all the way to the edge of Africa. Inside, however, it’s a testament to Sicilian comfort and style – extravagant but never gaudy; intimate without the sacrifice of spaciousness.  If it’s a true Mediterranean spectacle you’re after, you’ll likely find nowhere better.

At a glance

Stay in one of the hotel’s beautiful, traditionally-decorated rooms, converted from the friars’ cells of the original convent.

Dine on a feast of historic Sicilian dishes inside Eremo della Giubiliana’s great arched hall; or enjoy the view from the hotel’s Hortus Conclusus garden.

Relax in the Asphodelus wellness area, which offers a range of natural treatments based on the oils and wines produced in the surrounding countryside.

Embark on tours of the region by air, by land or by sea, or stay in and try out one of the hotel’s own cooking classes.
