Perched on the hill, the small Aeolian village emerging in a garden of bougainvilleas, olive and lemon trees, is where the Raya is, pushing all its terraces towards Stromboli, overlooking a friendly sea from which emerge Basiluzzo, Dattilo, Lisca Bianca, Bottaro and le Formiche. It is called a “Cult Hotel” by many but for its owner, it is only a place where lovers of nature, serenity and peace may finally find themselves. Awarded in 2004 with the Marco Polo Award after the decision of an international audience as the best “hotel de charme” of the Mediterranean. The Hotel Raya is based on a specific philosophy of life : it was built using natural materials and uses only organic products for the cleaning, the laundry, and especially, for the kitchen.
The reception, the bar and the restaurant have incredible terraces overlooking the magical beauty of the scenery. At the restaurant, the menu is simple : the dishes are prepared only with organic and even biodynamic products. The fish is the one from the sea and the extraordinary flavors and quality are as good as it used to be. The discotheque, where you can dance under the stars, is famous for its music, which is made to enjoy life and spend an unforgettable stay. P>
All rooms are unique : they have large terraces, a view of Stromboli, the sea, the countryside and the islets, as they are located in the highest part of the hill (10 minute walk from reception) and near the pool, with 4 large pools where you can enjoy a rare geothermal volcanic water, naturally warm and salted and its heat that come from the earth.
Theses loft rooms have a large terrace completely independent.
They have a terrace quite independent, often larger than the room itself.
