Hotel Signum

Hotel Signum

This charming, family-run hotel on Salina is situated in the northern village of Malfa and is the product of the meticulous renovation of an old borgo in tune with the surrounding nature and Aeolian traditions. Combine this with charming rooms, a warm welcome and an exceptional spa and you have the perfect place to discover the Aeolian Islands. Make sure to book a table at the restaurant run by a talented daughter of the owners. She was not awarded a Michelin star for her refined Mediterranean cuisine for nothing.

About the rooms

The rooms are decorated in a typical Aeolian style, keeping them simple but charming. They have TV, telephone, air conditioning, heating, Wi-Fi, minibar, safe and tiled floors. The bathrooms have a shower or bath, a toilet, bidet, hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers.

Our favourite room

The basic rooms (classic and superior) are very small. Therefore, we recommend the deluxe type. This room also has a sea view.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

The outdoor swimming pool is open according to the weather conditions. There are free sun loungers available. The pebbly Punta Scario beach is about 1 km away.

Work out and wind down

The lovely Wellness Centre, which welcomes guests from the age of 13, is partly open-air and inspired by Aeolian spas, with thermal baths, jacuzzi, steam bath and Turkish bath. Massages and body treatments are available at an extra cost. Discover the island's beautiful nature along the marked hiking trails or by taking a boat trip around the island and climb the two extinct volcanic peaks Fossa delle Felci and Monte Porri.

The hotel is in a peaceful location, hidden among bougainvilleas and citrus trees, in the northern village of Malfa, overlooking the smouldering crater of Stromboli. You can reach the sea, which is about 1 km away via steps. The little port of Santa Marina is at 8 km and you can sail from there to the port of Milazzo in Sicily in around 1h30.

Are you travelling by plane?

It is best to book a flight to Catania.


There is a transfer available between the port of Santa Marina, Salina and the hotel, which costs around 25 euros per journey. A transfer between Catania airport and the port of Milazzo costs around 210 euros per journey, or 260 euros for four people. A boat ticket from Milazzo to Salina costs around 25 euros per person.

Do you have a (rental) car?

We do not recommend driving yourself on this small island.
