Located just steps from the Sicily’s famed nature island preserve, Isola Bella, Italy’s Ragosta Hotels Collection has combined “luxury with nature” with the launch of its chic new boutique resort, La Plage Resort, this May. The resort was created to attract the growing travel trend of up-market travelers seeking an extraordinary hospitality experience that incorporates elements of their own lifestyles, including modern yet stylish accommodations and innovative dining options.
To celebrate the resort’s grand opening, guests can book a four-night stay and receive complimentary accommodations for a fifth night, now through October 31, 2010. Rates include daily buffet breakfast and start at €240 per room, per night.
