A complimentary welcome glass of Malvasia wine.
Idyllic bougainvillea-clad escape in the Aeolian Isles
A clutch of rural buildings make up Signum. Vivid blues and sun-bleached whites add to that feeling of Mediterranean ecapism, while tumbling jasmine and bougainvillea add vibrant splashes of colour.
Know It All
Hit the Spot
Away from the crowds on the isle of Salina.
Come here for...
● A true chill-out island holiday. ● Brilliant views of the isles of Panarea and Stromboli. ● Cocktails on the sunset terrace.
There's a terrace restaurant, a wide infinity pool with loungers, and a beach just a few minutes' walk downhill. The hotel also has a geothermic Spa specialising in water treatments and body scrubs.
Good to know
It's a place of charm, not glitz and glamour.
30 rooms and 3 suites
Rooms are named after the local flora and fauna. Most are simply furnished with wrought-iron beds, lace curtains and a smattering of antiques, and the best have a private terrace or balcony. All have internet access.
Do pay for a Superior room: more space, a bigger balcony and the best sea views.
Eat & Drink
Seafood lovers will adore the Signum's traditional Aeolian dishes cooked up by chef Michele Caruso. Dine al fresco on local favourites such as homemade pasta with lobster on the terrace overlooking the sea – all fish is served within hours of being caught, with other ingredients sourced locally and super-fresh.
Buffet breakfast is served until 10am
Available mornings and evenings.
See & Do
This is a place to chill rather than sight-see. Once you have soaked up the rays around the pool you can go for a dip in the Med, walking down a spectacular mountain path on steps hewn out the rock wall to a little secluded rock beach below. The hotel are happy to organise picmics and boat excursions around Salina and the neighbouring islands, so pack your swimmies.
Diving is readily available, and Salina's clear waters are great for snorkelling. Guides will walk you up one of the island's mountains for great views of its wild untamed seascapes. The local charming little of Malfa is sleepy with a capital "S", with a couple of churches and several bars.
Hotel Signum's Spa uses the island's mineral-rich geothermic waters for its menu of body and beauty treatments. Make time for a massage or cleansing body scrub.
Festa di San’Onofrio-Pollara. Salina's Caper festival is a celebration (and feast) of local food and culinary traditions.
Festa di Santa Marina. Another chance to let your hair down and join in the fun.
