Mondello, Palermo's historic beach, and the Capo Gallo Marine Protected Area are a half-hour drive away. In a few minutes' walk you can easily reach the Central Station and the port from which ferries leave for Cagliari and Naples. 

Palermo Falcone e Borsellino Airport is 23 km away.


Founded in 1874 and renovated in 1907 by Maestro Ernesto Basile, the Grand Hotel et Des Palmes is an exciting journey through time. A luxurious 19th-century hotel with an Art Nouveau atmosphere, it was once the residence of illustrious names, including the composer Richard Wagner. 

From residence to luxury hotel, after careful and thorough restoration work, it has regained its former splendour, skilfully reinterpreted in a modern key. Sumptuous halls, works of art and frescoes, refined materials and fabrics interact in a perfect balance between history and design, aesthetics, functionality and innovation thanks to the use of cutting-edge technology. 

Refined and original, a surprising place where you can breathe in the charm and magic of Palermo and experience the emotions of an unforgettable stay. 


Designed with an avant-garde spirit, the 102 rooms of the prestigious Grand Hotel et des Palmes are refined and cared for in every detail, ready to welcome the most demanding guests. The furnishings are classic and elegant, blending perfectly with design and innovation. Parquet floors, refined materials, furnishings that give a romantic note, precious fabrics make the rooms cosy and original with a unique atmosphere. Breakfast is always included.


About half an hour by car you can reach the elegant Mondello, Palermo's historic beach, an ancient fishing village with turquoise waters where there is a Liberty-style bathing establishment from the early twentieth century. If you want to snorkel or dive, you can opt for the nearby Sferracavallo Beach, where you can enjoy fresh fish dishes in its seaside village, or the Capo Gallo Marine Protected Area. Here you can dive down to 50 metres to discover the coral-rich seabed in an uncontaminated sea, go on excursions to the Grotte dell'Olio, Grotte della Regina or Grotte Caprari, or reach the spectacular Secca di Barra. 


The SPA at the Grand Hotel et Des Palmes is an exclusive environment dedicated to wellness, a space where time seems to stand still. Guests can enjoy the emotional journey and the Biosauna, which is gentler and warmer, revitalising thanks to the diffusion of essential oils. To eliminate tensions and treat yourself to a relaxing and regenerating moment, experience the Hammam calidarium or tepidarium, an ancient ritual that gives beauty and relaxation. The heated swimming pool illuminated by natural light and the hydrotherapy massage room with thermal bath complete the wellness path and, for those who wish, there are cabins dedicated to treatments.


In keeping with the design and architecture of the Grand Hotel et Des Palmes, the dining areas create a glamorous backdrop to the great Sicilian gastronomic tradition. 

The restaurants offer engaging experiences. A careful selection and research of raw materials with which to create original combinations for an original reworking of the concept of gourmet cuisine.

The NeoBistrot delights the palates of the most discerning, with a reinterpretation of traditional dishes and the refinement of constantly evolving flavours. In the area dedicated to Mixology, the DeskBar welcomes you with a well-stocked and impressive wine cellar. An eclectic and exclusive style with super-comfortable furniture, alternating sofas and armchairs with background music create the right ambience for sipping a drink or delighting the palate in the elegant NeoBistrot.
