A Natural Haven
The location of the ADLER Spa Resort SICILIA was specifically selected by the owners for its exceptional natural beauty. The vicinity to the Mediterranean Sea and setting alongside one of Sicily’s most precious nature reserves, the Torre Salsa. Situated in Siculiana (Agrigento) on the southwest coast of Sicily, the resort stands less than a quarter of a mile from the beach and just 260 feet above sea level on a panoramic plateau.
Beneath the beautifully landscaped gardens the terrain slopes down toward the coastline with sand dunes, wild grasses and scented heathers leading the way. The property enjoys direct and private access to a sheltered sandy beach, offset by a backdrop of majestic Mediterranean umbrella pines. Crystal clear waters are bordered by eye-catching white cliffs defining the outline of the Torre Salsa Nature reserve.
A sanctuary of biodiversity, the Torre Salsa nature reserve is home to many rare species such as Caretta turtles, porcupines, many birds of prey, tortoises, lizards and butterflies. Torre Salsa owes its name to the ancient watch tower perched atop the promontory which overlooks the shallow bay beneath. Guests of the resort can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Torre Salsa Nature Reserve during their stay. Guided hikes and nature tours are held throughout the year.
Interior spaces lead directly out onto private terraces and communal gardens beyond. The 90 rooms enjoy views to the Mediterranean Sea with interiors that effortlessly capture the essence of understated luxury and utmost comfort. Warm Sicilian tones of burnt orange and subtle yellows are interwoven through use of natural textiles. Sliding glazed doors open out onto individual lounge terraces. Unbaked clay walls naturally regulate the air quality and humidity while cedar wood panels bring a piece of Sicilian nature into the living space.
Amenities in the Suites include a minibar, coffee machine and tea making set, digital TV, air conditioning and Wi-Fi connection.
Spa & Wellness
The spacious spa is designed to soothe the mind body and soul with therapies and treatments aimed to relax, restore and revive, from head to toe. The resort’s three beautiful pools sit perfectly within the landscape overlooking the crystal-clear sea below. The freshwater infinity pool floats above the coastline enjoying serene views. A saltwater hydromassage pool eases away the stresses of everyday life. While the inviting Thalasso pool is a relaxing retreat set beneath a stunning Sicilian sky. The 25-Meter sports pool is perfect for daily exercise and aqua yoga classes.
With three independent Swedish saunas and extensive relaxation, spa and fitness zones, the wellbeing area extends to an impressive 35,000 square feet. Inspired by the surrounding natural environment each of the 13 treatment rooms enjoy breath-taking views of the sea. Tailormade therapies and treatments have been created using natural Sicilian ingredients such as Mediterranean seawater and algae, volcanic elements, and wild aromatic herbs. A secluded yoga platform sits amidst the beautiful gardens, one of the many locations where sessions are held during the resort’s regular yoga and wellbeing retreats.
A Taste of Sicily
Seasonal and regional cuisine leads the way. The restaurant and osteria menus highlight the vibrant flavors of the abundant regional harvest. Freshly caught fish are transformed into elegant dishes with simple yet delicious ingredients grown in the gardens of the resort or supplied by local farmers. Organic meats are reared in the countryside nearby and delicious desserts feature the perfumes and flavors of citrus, wild raspberries and sun ripened fruits.
The colorful cuisine of Southern Sicily is enhanced further with excellent wines made with grapes grown on the fertile slopes of Monte Etna. The restaurants’ extensive wine list also boasts biodynamic wines from the owners’ own biodynamic estate in rural Tuscany. The alfresco terrace at the Osteria offers outstanding views set beneath the dappled shade of a large pergola. The main sea view restaurant provides an elegant backdrop for a fine dining experience with a sensational sunset vista of the Mediterranean.
