The Ultimate Mediterranean Island Escape: Therasia Resort & Spa

The-Ultimate-Mediterranean-Island-Escape-Therasia-Resort&Spa_55

On the island of Vulcano, one of the seven Aeolian Islands, sits a little piece of paradise called the Therasia Resort and Spa. From this vantage point, you have vistas over the entire island chain: Lipari, the largest of the islands with its majestic Faraglioni, as well as the islands of Salina, Stromboli, Panarea, Alicudi, and Filicudi. As you approach Therasia from the sea, you see its dazzling white presence against the mountains; out of respect for the natural environment, the hotel and spa have used only local materials in building and furnishings — molten rock from Mt. Etna, and Sicilian terracotta, cedar, and olive woods. For folks who love Mediterranean getaways, this resort has it all, from spectacular sunset views to sumptuous food and drink; take a look at some of the confections pictured here and you’ll want to visit right away!

Therasia’s 97 guest rooms have soothing, neutral-colored interiors and colorful bathrooms decorated with black lavic stone and terracotta in a variety of hues. Beds have majolica or wrought-iron framing, and each room includes a comfy sofa bed as well — for handy napping during the day, refreshed by the sea breeze. Art in the room depicts local flora, especially cactus plants — also a feature of the resort’s gardens. With individual air conditioning, mini-bars, complimentary soft drinks, satellite TV, and free, secure Wi-Fi, you have complete comfort — and further relaxation available through the resort’s spa and wellness center, which offers massages, aromatherapy, sauna, Turkish baths, and “Emotion” showers. For the ultimate Mediterranean getaway — unforgettable views, gourmet food, and all the pampering you could ask for — Therasia is a treat not to be missed.
