A NEW HOTEL IN THE HEART OF AUTHENTIC SICILY : BETWEEN ANTIQUITY AND CONTEMPORARY ART – RECENTLY AWARDED AS INTERNATIONAL BEST DESIGN HOTEL PROJECT 2017

A place where you can find art, culture and exquisite sicilian food.

Alba Palace Hotel stands at the most authentic heart of Sicily and only 7 kilometres from Agrigento and the Valle dei Templi. This district became the new centre for contemporary art in Southern Italy in 2010, thanks to the project “Farm Cultural Park”, the first visitors park built in Sicily and where art, culture and urban regeneration have given a new outlook and a new identity to the city. This huge wave of renewal has been the inspiration for the Alba Palace, the first 4-star hotel in Favara. The Alba Palace is the leading light of hospitality in Favara, a perfect balance between tradition and modernity. The contemporary design for the restoration of the hotel’s 19th century Palace conserves the authentic elements of the building leaving its original characteristics unaltered. The 20 large rooms and suites are spread over the first and second floors and are custom interior designed with a blend of traditional and contemporary materials, such as oak and sheet metal. The Hotel offers a 50 sqm Spa Suite, which includes its very own private spa with sauna, Jacuzzi and mood light shower. The Executive Suite Apartment completes the offer; it consists of a one-of-a-kind 150 sqm roof-top apartment, with an 80 sqm panoramic terrace and private Jacuzzi.

ANTONIO ALBA FAMILY BIOGRAPHY 

Alba Palace Hotel is a brainchild that Antonio and his family had in 2014, a rare gem in the small center of Favara, a short way away from Agrigento and the major artistic beauties of Sicily. Once a B&B, the facility was then turned into a hotel with a gourmet restaurant.

The family has always been at the center of this reality. This three-generation story will let you discover real and authentic Sicily. Today, Italian and foreign tourists are welcomed by Antonio and his little grandchildren, for a professional experience and a family atmosphere.
