Therasia Resort and Spa, Vulcano

Dreaming of a hotel that merges rustic island charm with a sense of refined modern luxury? Well, we’ve found exactly that at the Therasia Resort and Spa. A white-washed patch of paradise that peers across the charming Aeolian archipelago, providing a heady combination of lingering sunsets, mouth-watering Sicilian cuisine and bespoke spa treatments, the Therasia epitomises the endless charms of the Aeolian Islands.


Perched on a rugged overhanging cliff that boasts one of our favourite sunset views of all time, the Therasia Resort and Spa can be found on the quaint island of Vulcano, where you will be whisked back in time to an undulating volcanic landscape that retains a distinctly untouched charm. Despite this undiscovered feel, Vulcano is wonderfully easy to reach; just a stone’s throw away Ferry ride from the mainlands of Italy or Sicily will take you to the island’s charming port. The hotel itself provides the perfect base to discover the archipelago; just 5 minutes from the Vulcano’s natural sulphur baths and 15 from the island’s imposing volcanic crater, your days can be spent soaking in healing mud or striding to smouldering peaks before embarking on a a private and intimate boat tour of Aeolian archipelago.


Boasting 94 rooms that are awash with crisp-white tones, rustic stone floors and private balconies that peer across to the hazy archipelago beyond, the Therasia’s accommodation options offer the perfect spaces for relaxation. The Deluxe room offers a charming and timeless sea view terrace, partially shaded by traditional cannizzi straw roofs for when that Aeolian sun reaches its scorching peak, whilst the Master Room offers an outdoor jacuzzi for unrivalled relaxation in the midst of true island beauty. Whichever room you choose, expect crisp white linens, soothing neutral tones, aquamarine bathrooms with cleansing raindrop showers and a sense of Mediterranean mellow that’s simply unsurpassed on the island of Vulcano.


For us, nowhere highlights the wonders of the Aeolian Islands like Hotel Therasia. From the languid infinity pool that seems to stretch on forever to the spa that offers a heady infusion of contemporary and classic therapies, we can promise that you’ll never get bored of the Therasia’s plentiful offerings. But what we love most about this charming islander is the culinary prowess showcased throughout, from the al-fresco pizza and prosecco at I Grusoni restaurant, to the Michelin starred experience on offer at Il Cappero, legendary Sicilian cuisine is showcased nowhere better than this boutique beauty.
