Boutique Resort Opens in Sicily

Ragosta Hotels Collection launched its chic new boutique resort, La Plage Resort, in Sicily this May. And from what we hear, it's already a winner.

Natural touches: The resort co-exists with the natural surroundings of Isola Bella and operates in an environmentally responsible manner. As the resort is located in a pine forest, all design aspects and furnishing feature natural elements such as stone, woods and plants.

We hear the resort will be known for the various al fresco public areas—think fragrant gardens and solariums and gathering spaces for guests to relax and unwind. But perhaps the most exciting facility will be the exclusive Marine and Beach Club, accessible only to guests and with an extensive menu of water sports and activities such as boating. Guided excursions and tours throughout the region as well as hotel transfers are also available.

Extra bonus:
In their rooms, guests can look for customized toiletries from ExPure SPA and Amaretto Lazzaroni cookies.

La Plage Resort is part of the Preferred Boutique division of Preferred Hotels & Resorts. To celebrate the resort’s grand opening, guests can book a four-night stay and receive complimentary accommodations for a fifth night, now through October 31. Rates include daily buffet breakfast and start at $317 per room, per night.
