An Overview of the Hotel
Our hotel was inspired by an ingenious architectural and entrepreneurial plan that proposed to create something truly special in one of the most stunning settings in the world. Cefalù has been recognized as such a place for thousands of years, with its stunning Arab-Norman Cathedral dominated by the ever-present Rocca, and its quaint historic center lying along the coastline of the ancient port.
This can all be seen from the spacious balconies of the Cefalù Sea Palace.
Here you will find a cityscape full of art and history, the clear, turquoise sea just 15 meters from the hotel, and one of the most beautiful historic centers in Italy a mere 5-minute walk down the seashore along Lungo Mare. Visitors will discover a newly restored City Theatre, the Medieval Washhouse, King’s Inn, Mandralisco Museum, Cloisters, the Cathedral with its splendid plaza, ancient city fortifications and the Megalithic wall.
The views that can be enjoyed from the balconies of our rooms and the picture windows in our suites are truly stunning. Have a private candlelight dinner on your balcony and savor the sublime tranquility of your setting.
The hall, , large and welcoming with its sprawling windows, offers an amazing 360-degree view of the bay. Inside you will find two crystal chandeliers hanging majestically and a specially designed grand staircase that lends a sense of magnificence to the entire structure.
From the roof garden take in the expansive views of the sea and Cefalù’s beachfront, an enchanting sight that will fill you with admiration for the city rightfully known as “the Pearl of the Tyherrean Sea.”
