At Linguaglossa, a town on Etna just 15kms from the ski slopes and the same distance from the splendid city of Taormina, the “Shalai Resort” is a 19th.century building offering timeless relaxation with a measured blend of tradition and the contemporary – all surrounded by breathtaking nature on the slopes of Etna..

An intimately historical atmosphere and typical Sicilian hospitality make this residence of past times an elegant and welcoming hotel; an unconventional space where warmth and taste for ancient times blends with style and modern comforts. The regal 19th century façade emphasizes the origins of the building as an aristocratic residence, and all the aristocratic context of the building has been reviewed and reinterpreted by expert architects just to give the place that lightness and luminosity to make your stay more pleasant.

In Sicilian dialect, “Shalai” means full joy, gratifying, a local term full of symbolic energy. And indeed, the resort becomes a place where the wellbeing experience is total, an experience which involves the senses in moments of precious relaxation – to enjoy in all the corners of the Resort and above all, in the wellness centre with sauna, hydro-massage and Turkish bath.
Two beauty salons and a relaxation corner with aromatic centrifuge will allow you to relax your mind and body.

Soft colours, warm lights, stonework and natural fabrics define the uniqueness of an intimate, friendly and enveloping surrounding, characterized by a basic design of past times, where you can also savour the creative cuisine that exalts the genuine tastes and fragrances of Sicilian tradition.

A careful selection of wines, with particular emphasis on those from Etna, accompanies the Chef’s suggestions. A welcoming space which offers all-day-long service, where it is possible to choose from among a refined selection of soft drinks, or simply enjoy some relaxation with a glass of wine and tasty delicacies. Two welcoming salons are perfect for any kind of event.

His Opinion: Hotel nuovo con servizi eccellenti.
Il personale ci ha trattati con grandissimo riguardo organizzando per noi cene ed escursioni. La nostra camera era arredata in maniera moderna con ogni comfort.
Anche il ristorante interno all'hotel è ottimo. Ci abbiamo cenato due volte con grande soddisfazione anche grazie ai preziosi consigli di Leonardo per ciò che riguarda i vini. Ho provato anche i servizi del centro benessere: massaggio e trattamento viso eseguiti alla perfezione e con ottimi prodotti da Samuela. Senza dubbio una esperienza da ripetere.

Un véritable cocon dans une belle demeure.
Le restaurant est aussi un délice, une invitation au voyage des saveurs siciliennes.
Sans oublier, le personnel très professionnel, attentionné, dévoué, et fort sympathique, qui agrémente le cachet de cet hotel.
A recommander sans retenue.
