IHG to Debut Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants Brand in Italy

IHG Hotels & Resorts has signed its first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants property in Italy. Joining IHG’s fast-growing luxury & lifestyle portfolio, the Kimpton property in Sicily will open in the second half of 2025 and represents a management agreement with partner Società Turistica Alberghiera Taorminese.

The Kimpton signing in Sicily follows six luxury and lifestyle openings and signings by IHG in 2023, demonstrating IHG’s investment and focus on this key market. This included the first urban expression of Six Senses opened in Rome, together with InterContinental Rome Ambasciatori Palace and Hotel Indigo Florence.

Two further Hotel Indigo properties are due to open in Turin and Trieste over the coming years, as well as IHG’s first Vignette Collection property, Hotel Alexandra, in Rome in 2025.

Nestled in the hill-top town of Taormina on the island’s east coast, the hotel will harness its heritage whilst embracing Kimpton’s ethos for superlative style, addictive irreverence and design led experiences that are ridiculously personal.

The 59-boutique bedroom hotel is expected to feature destination dining that will appeal to hotel guests and locals alike. The breakfast room and bar terrace will also offer panoramic views, spanning from Calabria to the Bay of Isolabella.

Kimpton definition of wellness extends beyond the obvious to permeate the guest experience, from the community-building effects of Evening Social Hour to the healthy options available in the minibar. Continuing this ethos, the Kimpton in Sicily will feature an outdoor Mediterranean garden, 20-metre swimming pool, and a tennis court.

Originally founded in 1981, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand was acquired by IHG in 2018. IHG has since spearheaded the brand’s expansion into Europe and beyond. The Kimpton property in Sicily joins Kimpton’s worldwide portfolio of properties including Kimpton Vividora Barcelona, Kimpton St Honoré Paris, and Kimpton Fitzroy London.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
