Glamourama : Siciliamo's guide to the most exclusive "treats" in Sicily

Siciliamo introduces its first guide to the most exclusive Sicilian "treats" : Boutique Hotels, intimate restaurants, celebrity hot spots and all the components to those travellers seeking glamourous, luxurious and über-cool entertainment in Sicily.

Glamourama is for those who do not mind spending some extra money for a get-away in total bliss and intimacy.

This week in Glamourama, Siciliamo discovers Caol Ishka Hotel in Syracuse.

Caol Ishka is one of a kind. This boutique hidden gem only features 10 bedrooms to better spoil its guests, while the warm mix of materials, designer furniture and antique pieces have all been blended in a rustic environment.

The garden merges with the surrounding nature: a wide lawn beside the splendid swimming pool with Mediterranean plants and aromatic herbs gives way to bamboo, wild grass and spontaneous vegetation.

Rooms are stylishly designed and equipped with all modern comforts; bathrooms are spacious and comfortable, characterised by designer washbasins and large walk-in showers with Iroko decking and glass walls. Oversized doors have been crafted by local artisans with various finishes: bisazza mosaic, mirrors, fabrics, gold leaf.

For food lovers, the Zafferano Bistrot offers creative menus based on Sicilian traditional flavours. The chef only proposes recipes in harmony with seasonal and high quality local ingredients and flavours.
