A spectacular location on the magnificent island of Vulcano, one of the Aeolian Islands: a timeless place with unspoilt, luxuriant nature. The Mari del Sud Resort means peace, flavours, traditions and extraordinary beauty, between the deep blue of the sea and the volcanic Crater. The resort has direct access to the famous ‘Sabbie Nere’ (Black Sands) beach.
Large, bright spaces, elegant and unpretentious; the Mari del Sud Resort is an invitation to relax and a delight to the eyes: every corner offers glimpses of the sea, the islands, the Volcano and the garden the resort is immersed in. A Mediterranean garden with great naturalistic worth, where you can wander among native species of the isle of Vulcano, aromatic herbs and prickly pears, bougainvillea and plants of African origin, each with an explanatory label and details.
The facility has 89 rooms, 84 of which are Classic rooms and 5 Suites. The furnishings and atmosphere are typically Mediterranean; a special feature of the rooms is the beautiful, hand-painted ceramic tiles, which are part of the Sicilian-Arabic culture in typical Aeolian fashion.
Classic – can be double, triple or quadruple rooms and are composed of a single room.
Suites – are the most spacious of the hotel and can accommdate up to 4 people.
The Mari del Sud Resort is on the Baia di Ponente, better known as "Sabbie Nere" due to its volcanic origins. On this beach, at approximately 350 m distance, is the beach facility for the hotel guests with special price conditions to rent umbrellas and sunbeds. If you walk through the little streets with their shops and stalls you’ll come to the Baia di Levante, also called "warm sea" due to the volcanic gases that bubble under water.
At the resort’s Beauty Point guests can book various kinds of massage and beauty treatments, some of which use local natural resources.
The Resort is suitable for holidays with children as it provides also special kids amenities, so as to make the holiday pleasant and relaxing for parents, too. The swimming pool has a special zone for them which is only 50 cm deep; they can also play in the garden and do sports like mini-volleyball, basketball, treasure hunts and more. At the restaurant there are high chairs, baby menus, baby food, small cutlery and children’s plates. Plus: swings, wooden gym apparatus and games for toddlers. Table football, ping-pong, an amphitheatre, trips to the volcano and diving courses for older children.
At the Baia di Ponente panoramic restaurant guests can taste the delights of creative cookery linked with traditional dishes. Thanks to the traditional wood-oven, tasty pizzas and focaccia can be eaten straight out of the oven. The Resort also has three refreshment facilities:
Le Sabbie Coffee Corner – in the hall, open all through the day.
Baia di Ponente Bar, a place for guests to meet and a splendid terrace overlooking the sea.
American Bar Tramonto, with high-class cuisine, sometimes accompanied by jazz concerts.
