The Ashbee

Prefect for relaxing yet close to local amenities.


The 24 beautifully appointed rooms are superbly designed with high quality fabrics and furnishings, featuring a blend of historic Sicilian style with traditional elegance. There are four categories of room Classic, Superior, Deluxe and Suite all of which boast safe, hairdryer, shower or bath, bathrobes and slippers, air-conditioning, mini-bar, satellite TV and Wi-fi. Suites can also offer family accommodation for up to four people. Not all rooms or Suites offer a balcony or terrace.


As you enter through the gates of The Ashbee you feel as if you are arriving at your own personal private residence. It was built in 1908 by the British architect Robert Charles Ashbee. An immediate sense of history, luxury and intimacy together with attentive personal service awaits you.  

Comfortable public areas and lounges are adorned with antique pieces yet still manage to create an atmosphere of more contemporary elegance. The gorgeous roof top terrace affording wonderful views of the surrounding coastline is the ideal place to linger over a sumptuous buffet breakfast consisting of both Sicilian and international delicacies. Although the hotel is ideally located to eat out in the evenings why not treat yourself for that special occasion in The Ashbee’s romantic and extremely intimate à la carte restaurant, the St. George? 

Located at the back of the Villa lie immaculate gardens leading down to an inviting infinity pool; relax here amongst the lemon trees and fragrant vegetation, sipping one of the hotel’s wonderful cocktails whilst admiring the far reaching views towards the coastline of the Italian mainland. 

The Ashbee is a perfect retreat for both honeymooners and couples wishing to relax in luxurious yet informal surroundings but at the same time enjoy easy access to a lively resort centre boasting a great variety of shops, restaurants, bars and cultural attractions. 

We will get you here from Catania airport by private taxi in about 1 hour.
