When booking your holiday at Sicily's Hotel Baia di Ulisse, you're bound to wonder whether you'll spend most of the time by the sea which washes the coast of Agrigento or experiencing the magic of the Valley of Temples, both located practically on the doorstep of the hotel. It's this mix of relaxation and culture, of beach life and ancient history which makes Baia di Ulisse one of Southern Sicily's most sought after hotels.
The sea is, indeed, a major protagonist of any holiday spent at Hotel Baia di Ulisse. The hotel rests almost directly on the beach of San Leone, a small town situated on the outskirts of Agrigento. The only thing lying between the hotel and its sandy beach, is the wood of coastal pines. The perfect place for those wishing to spend a day by the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea, the beach is reserved for exclusive use by hotel guests and equipped with sun beds, beach umbrellas and snack bar.
The interiors of Hotel Baia di Ulisse are characterized by a beautiful mix of old and new: of traditional artisan crafted furniture and fiery red designer sofas. Each of the hotel's 92 rooms are equipped with every modern convenience, from air conditioning to satellite television and free wireless internet connectivity. All rooms have a delightful little terrace facing the garden or the sea.
The beach is not the only place designed for holidaymakers' relaxation. Then there is Hotel Baia di Ulisse's splendid swimming pool with panoramic solarium terrace, the gardens and the pine wood, in which to find an attractive gazebo and children's play area. Above all there is the 'Circe' Wellness Center & Spa: 300sqm completely devoted to guests' wellbeing. Emotional hydromassage, Finnish Sauna, chromotherapy, Californian massage and aromatized steam baths: these are just some of the reasons to spend more than an hour or two in 'Circe'.

The Trinacria of the ancient Greeks, the culture of the Normans and the influence of the Arabs. An island volatile and vibrant like its sea, its volcanoes and its people. A sun drenched island with a splendid coastline and a landscape rich in contrasts, Sicily is a compendium of the greatest civilisations and cultures of all time, a book the pages of which filled with centuries of history and art. The Greek cities of Sicily: Agrigento, Selinunte, Segesta, and Syracuse, were among the most beautiful of the Hellenic world.
Thousands of years later, today’s visitors can still admire the Valley of Temples at Agrigento or watch a summer performance in the great Greek Theatre of Syracuse. The same concoction of Mediterranean cultures which has influenced the course of the island’s history, has made its way in to the kitchens of Sicily, resulting in a delicious and extremely varied cuisine. Agrigento , was described by the Greek poet, Pindaro as "the most beautiful city inhabited by mortals". Among the many monuments of note are: Agrigento Cathedral, the Church of St Nicola, the Archeological Museum, the Monastery of St Spirito, the Church of Purgatorio, the Church of St Maria dei Greci, the Art Museum, the house where Luigi Pirandello was born, known as "il Caos". Not to be missed the Valle dei Templi, just South of Agrigento, a group of Temples erected in the V century BC to celebrate the town's prosperity.
Hotel Baia di Ulisse is the perfect Sicilian seaside hotel. When not relaxing by the sea, guests might easily be found swimming in the hotel's gorgeous pool, or sunbathing on the terraces. Boat trips, nature walks, guided tours: at Hotel Baia di Ulisse a whole range of activities have been designed for those guests keen to explore Sicily.
