Hotel Imperiale Taormina

Located in the Sicilian fascinating town of Taormina, the Hotel Imperiale offers 63 luxurious rooms and suites with a sophisticated atmosphere, a fine-dining restaurant and extensive recreational spaces. Originally built in the early XX century under the name “Grand Hotel Imperial” and completely renovated in 2009, the hotel is set in close proximity of the famous Corso Umberto, offering a spectacular view of the historical center and the Giardini Naxos’ bay.

The main strengths during the execution of the assignment:

  1. Hotel of recent construction
  2. Differentiation of the product in the reference segment of the 5 stars of Taormina
  3. Location, characteristics and outlook suitable for an international operator.

The execution involved the search for a series of hotel operators, nationally and internationally, that could enhance the product taking into account the wishes of the owner company. The activities carried out envisaged the creation of an information memorandum of the highest quality, able to attract a very heterogeneous group of operators. Subsequently, to the solicitation of the first non-binding manifestations of interest, site visits and inspections were carried out for a thorough knowledge of the asset. The research has generated multiple offers among which the most attractive ones have been selected. The activities involved the drafting and negotiation of a binding termsheet prior to the signing of the lease contract.
