#10 of 19 hotels in Pantelleria
Stylish suites housed in ancient dammusi dwellings bring together strict monastic interior architecture and refined contemporary elegance: welcome to Sikelia, an exclusive, timeless place, synonymous with luxury and tranquillity, a place to discover the many contrasts of the island of Pantelleria. Our warm and personal welcome will make you feel right at home. Our elegant and stylish cuisine showcases the authentic flavours of rural tradition. And our Arabic garden is a place to get lost in the ancient rituals of grape therapy and rediscover the slow rhythms of the earth. This is Pantelleria, the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean, a place to discover and respect, with its dark rocks carved by the wind, its sharp forms softened by the roundness of the white dammusi dwellings, its natural hot springs and rejuvenating mud, the precious legacy of the volcano from which the island originated. The music of the wind crashes dramatically on the cliffs, as if to remind us that here, nature is the absolute master. But that nature is also our friend. And finally the sea, an intense blue, in which to get lost and dream. A sea which whispers tales of an Africa that is closer than we ever could have imagined.

This hotel is like a Paradise. We were met by Hotel staff at the airport and driven to the hotel. All staff were 100% friendly, professional and if we needed something, all was there in a minute. Our suite was just great. A lot of small details, which you would not expect from a hotel. No critics at all, just that the daily rate is really very high. But this paradise was worth every cent we spent.

Welcoming staff, Super friendly staff, Amazing Rooms. Stunning views, with dark skys. Nice pool, massage services, Recommendations on where to hike, and see the island. They even called to check on us when we climbed a strenuous hike. From when they meet you at the airport, to booking restaurants this hotel does it right. We appreciated the upgraded spacious room, with turn down service. With only 20 rooms you are in a private oasis, and the stress melts away.This hotel could not have been better. It is a five star plus.

Sikelia was a dream come true - we've been trying to get here since Oct 2016 when a journalist friend told us about his preview visit. We finally made it, and we'll be back! From the airport pickup (to help with the rental car logistics and escort us back to the hotel) to the daily activity suggestions, indulgent breakfast spreads to aperitivi on the roof, this is the place to stay on Pantelleria, and a good reason to visit the island in and of itself!

We have just left Sikelia, and Pantelleria, and had the most wonderful visit. The staff was - simply put - the finest, most lovable and loving group of people we have met in our expansive travels. Everyone associated with Sikelia was happy to help and brought heart into each conversation. We LOVED them and hated to say goodbye. The property itself is a little oasis in the middle of an otherwise non-descript area. There is little to do in the direct neighborhood and a car is absolutely necessary to properly enjoy the island. The room that we stayed in was a large suite with a lovely view. The room suited our needs, however I am not certain how happy we would have been in a smaller room or one with less of a view. I suspect not very. The pool is in a tight area and is quite tiny, with only six lounge chairs. Clearly, this is meant for only a short respite/quick dip - not as a hang out. The property is also totally inappropriate for kids (good). One of the big positive surprises, the food ... was sooooo good. Both breakfast and dinner was perfect each day. Tiny menu for dinner but we were always pleased. In the end, I am not positive that the value was there. It is not cheap. But we had a lovely experience and if your travels take you to Sicily, I would recommend a long weekend with the wonderful people at Sikelia looking after you.

We only stay @ 5 star hotels & this one is @ the top of our list! From the moment we entered until the (sad) day of our departure, we were enchanted by our beautiful surroundings, exquisite room, delightful staff & delicious food. All of this in the magical island of Pantelleria! The front desk staff’s service & friendliness rivals the best in the world - including our former favorite, the Peninsula in Beverly Hills. Luisa, the general manager is hands on & couldn’t be more helpful in assisting us with the most minute details. Brava! Her front office staff consisting of Alexandra, Gaia & Francesco are simply amazing! WOW! We were truly impressed with their strong desire to help in any way they could. Grazie mille! The breakfast staff was delightful, especially Halim (please forgive spelling). We were privileged to meet the owner/visionary, Giulia, who invited us & other guests to her phenomenal winery, Costa di Ghirlanda, which is a short drive away. We had a grand time & can’t wait to return. We’ve been spoiled beyond what words could fully express.
