Situated in an enchanting, magical location in the narrowest part of the Calabrian peninsula, the Grand Hotel Paradiso faces out over the Ionian Sea and is also infused with the aroma of the Tyrrhenian Sea, which is to be found just 15 minutes’ drive away. Dawn changes the shades of the landscape, the violet-grey tinge making way for an explosion of colours as the sun rises over the backdrop of the ‘Le Castella’ district.

Located in the very centre of the Gulf of Squillace, the Hotel is situated just 1200 metres from the impressive ruins of Scolacium and a mere 1000 metres from the Ionian Sea. The Hotel plays host to 78 rooms: 35 seaview double rooms; 35 twin rooms; 3 Junior Suites; and 5 Suites, including the exceptionally romantic ‘La Rosa’ Suite.


The key to the soul of the Grand Hotel Paradiso is art.
Art infuses all of the spaces, the bedrooms and the public areas, to such an extent that it merges with the very concept of the hospitality on offer here.

The ubiquitous presence of art is something that our guests will perceive from the moment they check in – a procedure that takes place in the large LOBBY, surrounded by 18th-century and contemporary artworks, with the marble inlay in the centre of the floor serving very much as a focal point.
