With panoramic views of the Taormina coastline, Hotel Borgo San Rocco is the ideal location to set up your unforgettable wedding banquet amidst the spectacular atmosphere provided by the location and the impeccable service of the staff.

Facilities and capacity

The structure was born from the renovation of the ancient district of San Rocco in Savoca, taking special care of the details of the old pre-existing houses. The hall where your banquet will be held can accommodate up to 180 guests, with splendid views of the landscapes of the Taormina coastline.

Services offered

The attentive and courteous staff will guarantee the full success of your event, taking care of every detail of your reception and always paying close attention to the needs of your guests.

Catering

The restaurant's expert chefs will allow you to taste dishes derived from the local tradition accompanied by a selection of the most renowned Sicilian wines. Special care is devoted to the choice of ingredients: from fish always fresh daily to meat, always respecting local traditions.

Other services

Borgo San Rocco Resort also organizes for its guests: business meetings, workshops and conferences in a location that was also the setting for the famous movie "The Godfather": getting married in the same settings as Al Pacino and Apollonia's wedding. Borgo San Rocco Resort offers you the possibility of using the Philharmonic Center of Savoca, in the vicinity of the resort, to organize exhibitions, cultural meetings, events and civil ceremonies within it.

Location

The resort is located in the vicinity of the churches of S. Nicolò, S. Maria in Cielo Assunta, and the Matrice (Byzantine) church where you can organize your religious ceremony at the ancient medieval village of Savoca.

Our guests said this was "The Best Wedding Ever!"

We had our civil ceremony on the terrace above Borgo San Rocco, canapes on the hotel terrace, and our reception at their pool area. All of our guests stayed at the hotel and the staff were fantastic - we could not have been better looked after. The terrace where we got married has absolutely breathtaking views which do not disappoint! The hotel terrace is quintessentially Italian and the pool area was also absolutely perfect. With a full catering kitchen (a relocation of the main kitchen), preparing and serving truly amazing wedding food at the pool was not an issue at all and the waterside location provided a unique setting for the meal, the speeches, and dancing and cocktails after dinner.

We had the best experience imaginable for our wedding at Borgo San Rocco! We and our guests felt like members of their family whilst we stayed there. Hotel manager Francesca always has a smile and is incredibly helpful and attentive! Nothing is too much trouble.
The head chef, Francesco is a master craftsman. His food is absolutely incredible! Francesco prepared some of the best food we've ever eaten for our reception and there were no issues at all when it came to preparing food for dietary requirements or anyone with allergies or intolerances. They were more than happy to carer for the children at the wedding too.

Borgo San Rocco's sommelier is a brilliant man - Francesco helped us pick the wines we had for the wedding days (yes days - we held a 3-day celebration including a welcome party the day before the wedding and a poolside barbeque the day after), which even our most discerning guests enjoyed.

Mr Vittorio - the venue owner - is a remarkable man who has created an incredible place. He is often around and is always happy to talk about everything and anything. If you offer the man a cigar, you'll be friends for life!

We cannot thank Borgo San Rocco enough for everything that they have done for us. We will definitely be back for out first year anniversary! We would also recommend it to anyone who wants a destination wedding!

Unforgettable wedding: our magical experience at Borgo San Rocco Resort in Sicily

We got married at Borgo San Rocco Resort in May 2023, and we cannot recommend this venue highly enough. We were able to seamlessly communicate with the hotel in English as everyone spoke excellent English. This made it very easy for us.

Our journey to this beautiful location in Sicily began in October 2022, and from the moment we set foot in the resort, we felt like a part of the family. Francesca was with us every step of the way, fulfilling every wish we had for our special day. Thanks to her excellent organization, we were able to save on hiring a separate wedding planner.

Francesca introduced us to amazing vendors and handled all communication on our behalf, as we didn't speak Italian. We were thrilled with every detail, from the priest and the beautiful church Chiesa Madre di Savoca, to the music (a beautiful string quartet in the church, traditional music during the reception, and a fantastic DJ in the evening), the photographers and videographers, vintage wedding car, delicious wedding cake, the exquisite floral arrangements, and the overall decor. We particularly loved the beautiful string lights at the front courtyard, which they specially installed for us. Francesca even organized babysitters with a bounce house to keep the children entertained. The kids all LOVED it, allowing the parents to enjoy their dinner without worry.

We had a total of 100 guests and celebrated for two days at the resort. The first evening was a delightful pizza party for everyone to get together, and the second day was our wedding. The food, Sicilian wine and service were outstanding. During our visit in October, we had the opportunity to taste all the dishes, and Francesco (the chef) tailored the menu to our preferences. He also accommodated special requests from our guests, considering allergies and dietary restrictions with absolute perfection.
We were able to accommodate approximately half of our guests at the resort itself, but there are several small Airbnbs in the village that offer rooms for rent. This made it easy to house all our guests without any issues. We stayed in the "Bridal Suite," which was a charming tower, and it was perfect for capturing stunning getting-ready photos.
Savoca is a truly magical little mountain village, and it was incredibly convenient that everything was just a few meters away. This meant we could avoid transfers and save time. One of the highlights of the village is the breathtaking view and the tranquility it offers. It was perfect because there weren't many other people or tourists in the village, allowing us to fully enjoy our wedding with our families and friends. Every corner of the village is beautiful, making it perfect for photoshoots.
Savoca is a part of cinematic history, as the all-time classic "The Godfather" was set in this location (wedding scene). This added an extra layer of special significance for us and our guests.

The journey to the location was uncomplicated as well. The nearest airport is in Catania, approximately 80 km away, which is about an hour's drive. We organized a shuttle transfer with small minivans for our guests. Some of our guests rented a car as they extended their stay on the beautiful island of Sicily.
On our wedding weekend, everything went according to plan and even exceeded our expectations! It was the most beautiful day of our lives, and we want to express our heartfelt thanks to the entire team. GRAZIE! We, along with all our guests, fondly remember the wonderful days in Savoca. Our guests enjoyed it so much that they suggested we celebrate our anniversary together in Savoca every year.

Idyllic Wedding On Top Of The World

The beautiful team at the Borgo gave us the wedding of our dreams.
We will be forever grateful to them for the love, kindness, attention to detail, support, stunning hotel & surroundings, wonderful food & good humor they showed us and all of our guests.
From the moment we arrived at the Hotel we knew our family & friends would be well looked after so we were able to relax and enjoy taking it all in.
What more can you ask for, simply perfect!
We had originally planned our Wedding for July 2020 so it was rearranged for 2021 & then finally again for 2022. At no point were we worried about our booking. The Borgo were reassuring and completely at ease with the necessary re-arrangements which is a testament to the love they have for their guests and the services they provide. We know of many establishments in the UK that were less than helpful in the difficult circumstances that the continuing lock downs found us all in.
Resort Borgo San Rocco is a beautiful gift, if you find it you are blessed.
We cannot recommend them highly enough, our hearts were full on our Wedding Day and so too were all our guests. Everyone would return in a heart beat and we very much look forward to being able to go back and visit our friends in the not to distant future.
Love Matt & Claire xxx
