The two resorts, currently under construction and scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2012, are the Corinthia Taormina Golf Resort and the Wyndham Catania Golf Resort. Situated on a 616,000 sq meter tract of land in the picturesque Alcantara national park and canyon, within the popular Giardini Naxos area of Taormina, the five-star Corinthia Taormina Golf Resort will feature 130 bedrooms and suites and 158 fully serviced residential units on four floors, overlooking an international 18-hole golf course and club house. The hotel is ideal for both leisure and corporate travellers and will feature two restaurants, three bars including a juice bar, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a health club and spa and six meeting rooms. The hotel also has parking for 350 cars and is located 1.5 km from the popular Taormina beaches, 35 km from Catania international airport and about the same distance to the city of Messina.
