Experiences that make very special every stay in Shalai

"Scialare": to have fun

Fun is a required element for your stay in Shalai. There are so many ways to make lovely memories, from having dinner at the Michelin-starred Shalai restaurant, with chef Giovanni Santoro, to attending an original Sicilian cooking class, or going wine tasting at Shalai’s cellar, with its extraordinary selection of Sicilian, Italian and foreign prized wine, as well as its truly special vertical tastings of rare Etna wines. Or even pampering yourself in the spa, and taking some moments just for yourself.

Gourmet dinner

Our gourmet dinner is a contemporary tale, drawing from the traditions of a rich and generous land such as the slopes of our Mount Etna, known as 'A Muntagna, the Mountain. Mount Etna’s beauty and natural power is a source of inspiration for chef Giovanni Santoro here at the Michelin-starred restaurant Shalai. His cuisine is all about fun and enjoyment, about making harmonies of simple flavours, about getting the most out of the wide range of local ingredients, and some tastes that are off the menu, offered to amaze you. A dinner at Shalai is full of delightful little surprises, thanks to an open-minded chef and an enthusiastic and professional waiting staff. Shalai restaurant is a magical and romantic place, that will satisfy your desire for fun and discovery.

Wine tasting

Shalai’s Cellar is a quiet, evocative place, where elegant signature bottles are kept alongside local and international sparkling wines, and vertical vintage selections of Etna’s wineries that often date far back. Guests can reserve a journey through taste, while sitting comfortably in the restaurant or in the ballroom. Let our sommelier Dario De Salvo and our director Leonardo Pennisi entertain you with the canteen’s secrets and prized possessions, while they share gems that are worthy only of the most daring hearts.

Private SPA

A magical moment for guests to take for themselves. An experience of absolute well-being that cannot quite be described. The SPA is a magical place that you can book just for yourself, to relax and enjoy all the treatments you desire. Reserving the SPA for yourself and your loved ones will give you the chance to fully enjoy the space, to create a setting for moments of complicity and love that will turn into cherished memories. A moment that will leave you with a sense of tranquillity and grace. Reserving your time in the spa is the pleasure of taking care of yourself and being in touch with your wellbeing.

Cooking class

Spending time in the kitchen with the chef Giovanni Santoro is a great opportunity for everyone who loves to learn and experience the joy of cooking. These cooking classes can be reserved at Shalai, and are offered for food lovers and all guests who are interested in knowing more about the art of cooking alongside a Michelin-starred chef. Cooking classes are also opportunities to break out of the formality of dining services and immerse yourself in every step of the preparation of a dish. You can ask questions and stand by Santoro’s side for the entire experience.
