With breathtakingly smouldering views of the volcanic island of Stromboli in the distance, this enchanting multi-tiered hotel, tucked into the rocky cliffs on the island of Panarea, redefines the word 'panoramic'.
Carved into the steep rocky cliffs sits the gorgeous whitewashed building of the Hotel Raya, which enjoys uninterrupted views of the distant volcano Stromboli, where guests can marvel as bursts of red-gold lava erupt into the night sky, briefly illuminating the surrounding islands in a spectacular light show of nature's own making.
Dine in the hotel's alfresco restaurant, where the chef creates his delectable Sicilian and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, which guests can enjoy seated at tables spread out along the bougainvillea-laden terraces amidst a garden infused by the heavenly scent of lemon and orange trees.
There is also the choice of four scented salt-water pools and a glorious infinity pool, taking full advantage of the phenomenal vistas.
The hotel also boasts its own in-house nightclub; the only night spot on the entire island. Hugely popular with local Italians and the SuperyachtSet, experience the alluring vibe of this open-air night club for yourself, where the young, achingly hip and wealthy move rhythmically to a heady beat until the first golden fingers of dawn pierce the inky black sky.
Panarea is the pearl of the Aeolian islands and is a favourite amongst A-listers and Italy's smart set, who cluster around it's shores every summer.
