About the hotel

Built in the late1800’s at the very height of the Belle Époque period, the sumptuous and elegant Villa Igiea sits in a peaceful location, high above Palermo’s picturesque harbour. Originally created as an exclusive health resort, the hotel takes its name from ‘Igiea’, the Greek nymph of health. Now the hotel is the very essence of elegance and refined hospitality with its grand Liberty style rooms and terraces overlooking the lush gardens towards the sea. The Art Nouveau furnishings afford a wonderfully glamorous feel to the 116 guest rooms, which maintain much of their original décor, whilst having been discreetly adapted so as to accommodate the most modern of facilities. Some rooms overlook the gardens, whilst others have views on the Bay of Palermo.
The curved sea water swimming pool is located in the terraced gardens, surrounded by lush plants and flowers.

'Our stay at Villa Igiea was wonderful. We had a beautiful garden, ocean view room. The room was very clean and the service was excellent. The staff was very professional and accommodating . The pool was beautiful and so peaceful. The pool staff could not have been nicer or more attentive. The breakfast buffet had an enormous selection including delicious fresh fruit. We would definitely recommend this historic hotel.' Ally - June 2014
'This was a fantastic "old villa" hotel overlooking the bay of Palermo. If you want to feel pampered and special, this is the place. Everything was so clean, and the staff very helpful. We had a Bayview room, definitely worth it, overlooking the pool. It was huge with all the amenities you would expect in a 5 star hotel. This was part of our honeymoon and very romantic.'
