A beach resort on Vulcano Island, with breakfast, welcome perks, optional dinner and more
It’s full steam ahead as you arrive at the island of Vulcano, where white plumes of smoke rise from dramatic peaks. Named after the ancient Roman god of fire, the island is a UNESCO World Heritage site and celebrated for its therapeutic mud baths and hot springs. Below its iconic crater, just behind a famous black sand beach, Mari del Sud Resort is perfectly positioned for enjoying the many natural wonders this colorful gem of an island has to offer.
The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning resort is set in fragrant gardens teeming with native plants, like yucca, eucalyptus, rosemary and bougainvillea. It’s recently been refurbished and the overall design pays homage to local traditions. A collection of low-rise, whitewashed stone buildings feature distinctive built-in seating, hand-painted ceramic tiles and thatched pergolas. You'll be gorging on scrumptious breakfasts and super-fresh seafood in the restaurant, and elsewhere there’s a large, beautiful swimming pool, with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas to go around.
The Mediterranean-style Double rooms are painted bright white and make ample use of local glazed painted tiles. Handmade accessories, like lamp bases made from pebbles and driftwood, further add to their character.
Open for lunch and dinner, Baia di Ponente restaurant offers fresh fish, Sicilian specials and wood-fired pizzas. There’s also a romantic rooftop terrace where you can take in the stunning sunsets over a cocktail or two.
The resort is ideally located behind the black sand beach on Porto Ponente Bay, near all the island’s main attractions. You can take a boat tour from Levante Port via the shuttle service available from the hotel, and explore fumaroles, hot springs and the Cave of the Horse, which is filled with amazing natural light displays. A hike up to the lunar-like volcanic caldera is an unforgettable experience, and you’ll be rewarded with out-of-this-world views.
