ZASH Country Boutique Hotel is a boutique hotel where guests rediscover a time where they live in another dimension, made of slow gestures, new visions and mysterious voices: zash, splash, cucù, crag, ciuf, druum, pluf - the instinctive and hidden sounds of nature. To be surrounded by the volcano stones and scents of orange blossom, then all is quiet. It is the pleasure of life.
The aim of the design concept of the architect Antonio Iraci and Carla Maugeri was that elegant historical fragments meet the contemporary. The 17 rooms which include 8 suites, bring out the physicality of nature respecting the traces of the past. The majesty of Mount Etna and the transparency of the sea are the two strong contrasts that join together in the micro territories of this splendid side of Sicily.
This concept is carried through to the culinary experiences of the hotel. The Zash Restaurant is located where time has stopped: a special cozy intimate space. Where wine was fermenting in the old days, guests can experience the slow dimension of tastes, space and times. The Chef Giuseppe Raciti and his team mix creativity, tradition and territory to create the one star Michelin cuisine.
Inside the Nature at Zash there is the Zash’s nature: a retreat for contemporary wellbeing. Experience the outdoor pool with Etna view or the silent lemon garden. The pool is made of Etna lava stone, strong and powerful. Bare feet touch the water and feel the wood, while the warmth of intimate spaces meets the local aromas. At the Zash’s Spa area guests can immerse themselves in the nature with a yoga class at the orange garden or have a massage, nothing is left to chance.
In this intimate and private retreat, the combination of Mediterranean and volcanic influences will make the relaxing experience unique.
The Pool Villa Spa express the concept of the Country Boutique Hotel at the fullest. The 40m2 suite is separated from the main building and offers absolute privacy with a terrace with private bath and an exclusive view of the Etna and the sea. The green design is amplified by the natural extension created by the glass walls and citrus grove around.
ZASH is located in Giarre, a small village between Catania and Taormina and is much known in this part of the coast for the touristic harbor where private yachts and luxury boats docks. From Giarre you can quickly go to Taormina, one of the most famous and beautiful cities of Sicily to visit the Greek theater and enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views of Mount Etna and the sea. The ones that love nature and adventures can start a private Jeep tours excursion to the volcano or a private wine tasting or a rafting experience at the Alcantara gorges. Zash also offers helicopter tours directly from their property. In Catania, one of the biggest cities of Sicily, is only a few kilometers away, guests can discover one of the greatest baroque cities of the Mediterranean Sea. Catania radiates a romantic flair with its broad boulevards, spacious squares and great cathedrals.
