Therasia Resort Sea & Spa in Sicily, Italy
Emerging from the shimmering shores of Vulcano, glowingly reminiscent of a classic Greek metropolis, the fabulous Therasia Resort Sea & Spa is a true oasis of luxury befitting the ancient beauty of the tiny Aeolian Islands in Italy. Shimmering pure whites, contrasting marvelously with the dark sands of volcanic beaches, create a stunning, picturesque world, exuding an aura of peace, tranquility, and relaxation. Flowing white walls encompass the classic Mediterranean style of each room, with beautifully tiled floors and accents adding to the bright and charming elegance of simplicity. Glass French doors lead out to your private balcony, where gorgeous views of the Mediterranean and neighboring islands will take your breath away, while natural light and cool breezes flow fabulously throughout. With plush beds and the peaceful island atmosphere, Therasia Resort welcomes you to experience complete freedom and serenity as you escape from the world.
On your first morning, step out onto your balcony and gaze out over the sea, ready to explore and discover the island. Hike to the top of the volcano to Gran Cratere, and take in sweeping views of the sea, sparkling as far as the eye can see. Experience a spa day as the ancient Greeks would with a visit to the volcano's amazing natural mud baths and hot springs, then return to the hotel to cool off with a dip in one of two amazing infinity pools. Enjoy a day strolling along the black sands of Baia di Levante, Baia di Ponente, and Dell' Asino beach, and dive into the crystalline Mediterranean surf. Venture out on the open ocean for a fascinating scuba diving excursion amidst ancient reefs, or take a relaxing sightseeing cruise around the Aeolian Islands. In the evening take a quick boat trip to nearby Lipari or Panarea Islands to partake in the vibrant local nightlife, then return to the hotel for a fabulous sunset dinner. Seated on the tranquil terrace, gazing out over the sea, dine on the gastronomic wonders of L'Arcipelago's innovative Sicilian cuisine. With a nightcap in hand watch the stars emerge over the islands, unchanged since the days of the ancient Greeks, and settle in to the tranquil world that is Therasia Resort Sea & Spa.

Reviews for Therasia Resort Sea & Spa
We booked fairly late and wondered about our choice when we read some of the reviews. Our experience has been superlative! The staff are so friendly and happy to do whatever they can to make your stay a pleasant one. For example, there was no kettle in our room for that morning cuppa. We asked and within half an hour, a kettle, teapot China cups and an assortment of tea bags arrived. The food is local cuisine - no pie and chips! And the quality and presentation is amazing. You should be aware that wine is expensive and it is worth asking to see the wine list before agreeing to the wine waiter's suggestion. But the cost of wine in the shops is high anyway. All the transfers worked smoothly, although the trip is long, so don't expect a quick journey. The rooms are comfortable and well worth the extra for a sea view. Everyone is so friendly and all take pride in their island. Regular courtesy buses take you to the harbour where you can get the hydrofoil to neighbouring islands. A tour of Vulcano with Santi is a wonderful experience and a walk to the top of the crater is breathtaking - literally! We have had a wonderful time and thoroughly recommend the holiday. The season has not yet started in earnest so many trips etc are not yet runnng, but we have found plenty to do and see.
My husband and I spent one week at the Therasia on a bed, breakfast and dinner option. The transfers to/from Catania were long, but at every stage of the jouneys we were met promptly and there were no problems. We were welcomed to the hotel warmly, and staff were professional and informed. Our room was very attractive with a huge terrace with chairs, table and large sun-loungers. The breadfast and dinner was outstanding, with exceptional service from attentive staff. The menu was based on Siciian menus, with lots of fish, always interesting, so we never went to the Cappeto restaurant. The wine list is extensive and expensive, with the sommelier guiding you . The hotel gardens were very attractive, with plenty of seating and lounging areas to choose from, and the pool area and views are stunning. Vulcano island is small, but it is fun to take the regular hydrofoils to exlore the other Aeolian islands.

My wife and I returned to the Therasia Resort at the beginning of May 2017 following our first visit with a couple of friends last year in late September, we wanted to spend more time at this stunning location as we had such a wonderful time during our first visit. We were extremely pleased to be told on arrival that we had been upgraded to a sea-view room as we were returning guests. We imagine the Resort would not be able to offer this during peak season, but we really appreciated the gesture, the view from our room was amazing. We booked the holiday again through Fleetway Travel, we are surprised at some of the negative comments as the deal that Fleetway offer for a 5 star hotel with such stunning scenery, and fine dining is really excellent. The choice at breakfast cannot fail to satisfy, and the evening meal which consists of four courses is more than adequate for the healthiest of appetites. My wife and I found that we had to forego the first course as it proved too much, thus enabling us to enjoy the sweets on the menu which were fantastic. We would like to say a big thank you to Massimo and Alberto, who were very attentive in the main dining room, and could not do enough for all the guests. That said, all the staff were very obliging, but we did not get their names. The islandâ€™s main attraction appears to be the volcano, which looks quite daunting from the harbour area, but the winding pathway makes the walk to the summit accessible for most people. It is possible to visit all 7 islands via the hydrofoil ( Liberty Lines ) from the port area, but the hotel can usually arrange trips to Panerea/Stromboli and Filicudi/Alicudi slightly cheaper. Both the above being 2 island trips in a single day. We visited Vulcano, Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli last year, the latter two combined in a single day, with a local boat trip, but arranged through the hotel. This year we completed the set, visiting Salina, Alicudi and Filicudi, using the hydrofoil. Alicudi and Filicudi take around 1 Â˝ hours as the hydrofoil picks up at Lipari, Salina, and Rinella, which is another port in Salina, before dropping off at Filicudi and Alicudi. It then does the reverse route on the return journey. We have visited a lot of countries around the world and the Aeolian Islands rank as one of our favourites, we hope to return sometime in the future and of course to the Therasia Resort.

Lovely room with private deck overlooking the ocean. Enjoyed lounging at the pool. Surprised to see a lifeguard on duty. The staff was helpful and friendly. We ate at the regular restaurant and the food was disappointing. They do have a Michlen one star on site. Could be a better choice.
