Italian Charm in Sicily

In-between shooting gorgeous Italian-inspired fashion stories for the magazine, the Cosmo Bride fashion team fell in love with the charms of honeymoon hotspot Sicily...

Sicilian Drama


Steeped in culture and history, Sicily is the ideal Mediterranean destination if you’re looking for sunshine, great food and beautiful scenery to explore. The fashion team headed to the south of the island, a region full of UNESCO World Heritage Sites…


NH Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa


With its secluded location and close proximity to some of the best beaches on Sicily’s south coast, the five-star NH Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa makes the ideal honeymoon base. Cosmo Bride especially loved the freshness of the buffet-style dinner.

D for Design


Spacious interiors and ultra-modern design give the hotel that ‘wow’ factor, with plenty of areas for lounging around and relaxing in style.

So Spa, So Good


Stressed-out brides will be able to totally unwind in the state-of-the-art Spa facilities, which include an indoor heated pool, hydro massage, sauna and steam bath. Plus you can work your way through an extensive list of luxurious treatments from the Spa menu – heaven!

And So to Bed


We loved the bedrooms at Donnafugata – they’re like having your own apartment, they’re so big! Set away from the main reception and eating areas, they’re very quiet – and if you’re feeling lazy, you can hop on a golf buggy to get to your room.

Go Explore


Hire a car from Holiday Autos and go adventuring in the Sicilian countryside. With gorgeous seaside towns and beaches a stone’s throw away, plus breathtakingly beautiful Sicilian Baroque towns like Ragusa, Modica, Ibla, Noto and Scicli you won’t get bored.

Go There


Donnafugata is one hour by car from Catania International airport. Alitalia flies from London Heathrow via Rome to Catania (alitalia.com).
