The first water mills were built in the XVIII century on the edge of a stream overlooking the gulf of Cefalù, among lush orange, olive and carob trees.
In this charming and evocative natural setting, the first touristic settlement was realized in 1967. The garden was, already in those years, filled with a plant typical of the northern Sicilian coast, the Ailanthus, better known as “Albero del Paradiso”, from which the hotel will take its name under the property of our family. Subsequent restructuring interventions will then lead to the current configuration of the structure and the completion of the garden with palm trees, oleanders and other native species.
Ideal for lovers of wellness and nature, Alberi del Paradiso dominates the Gulf of Cefalù in a panoramic position in a vast park around three ancient water mills. It offers a lush Mediterranean garden overlooking the promontory of Santa Lucia – pristine waters and rocks blemished by sunsets – and on the “Rocca”, the imposing rock that towers over the Norman Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Sicilian hospitality and elegant design are to be found in every area of the Hotel. They are all bright, intimate and with exclusive details. 55 rooms equipped with every comfort; lift; indoor and outdoor restaurant; bar; lounge; gym; wellness centre in an ancient water mill; outdoor pool heated with solar panels; chill out area; playground; tennis court; parking covered by photovoltaic panels; meeting room (capacity 60/80 people); natural air conditioning system; 10,000 sqm garden.
Furthermore, 1,200 sqm of private beach with fine light sand on the seafront of Cefalù, which is equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds (from June to September, for which a shuttle service is available) and an area for boat storage at the Presidiana pleasure boat harbour (Cefalù).
In the Gardens of Paradise, Al Capone Restaurant offers continuous reference to Sicilian culture and tradition, thus revealing love for the typical products of our generous land through the dishes of its tasty and refined cuisine, served at sunset under the white curtains of the garden.
Mediterranean dishes, fresh fish, local vegetables, preserves and traditional pastries, many organic products and the three Slow Food Presidia of the Madonie Park. In the cellar there are over one hundred labels selected from the most awarded Sicilian wineries. Last but not least, national and international bubbles, malvasia, passito and typical marsala wines.
The history of our Hotel is marked by the encounter of man with nature. Today, we are the guardians of this natural and architectural treasure, and we choose to preserve its authenticity and splendour with a constant commitment. We love to offer low environmental impact stays in perfect harmony with nature.Average response time: Less than 24 hrs
