Hotel Batia ★★★★

Alcamo / Province of Trapani

In a quiet area just outside the historic centre of Alcamo, the Grand Hotel Abatia is located on a small hill overlooking the Gulf of Castellammare; a jewel of four stars with exclusive charm. The high quality service and the typical Sicilian welcoming warmth of the team attentive to your every need, will leave you with lasting memories of the warm embrace of Sicily, the Terra del Sole.

The refinement of the furnishings and attention to detail, from colours to raw material choices for you, give a unique impression of luxury and refinement; this hotel is ideal for business, leisure and relaxation. The hotel design and grounds have a versatility to suit all of our guests.

The Grand Hotel La Batia, in its rooms, corridors, stairways and in its various angles offers a refined and artistic tone drawing on times during Sicilian history. After crossing the “Avenue of Trinacria” with its original mosaics reminiscent of the main archaeological and artistic sites of the island, leading from the entrance gate to the reception, you enter the “Room of the Elimi”, the reception, which marks the beginning of Sicula civilization in western Sicily. One has the impression of entering a cave; the arches, the walls and the floor are made of stone and the counter of the lobby is a travertine Alcamo monobloc with precious stalagmites that bear witness to the passing of millennia. On the roof, the tiles and the front wall have reproduced in an original way some graffiti of the Mesolithic cave of Palermo the “Addaura”.

Proceeding to the first floor via the stairscase is a large terracotta tiled panel depicting the colours and typical designs of the characteristic “Sicilian carts” that are part of folk history of the Island.

Continuing, the second floor, you will remain dazzled by the brightness of the two domes; on the day, with the colours of the sun, and at night, with the stars, we find a magnificent terrace breakfast room, bar and park restaurant. This all opens up to the pool edge to the spectacular amphitheater that seems to envelop the pool area and is characterised by caves and graphitic engravings of the Mesolithic period.

The 25 rooms including 4 suites, are equipped with every comfort: air conditioning, private bathroom with shower, the furnishings are typically Sicilian revised through various dominations. Television and pay TV, ADSL Internet connection, Wifi and cable TV, minibar and safety deposit box are all provided.
