The ultimate glam retreat, with an "aristo-boho" vibe, comments Julia Chaplin for W Magazine in the attached, August 2011 travel review of Panarea Island. In an unspoilt island off the north coast of Sicily only reachable by ferry, hydrofoil or helicopter, this cool hotel with a rockin' disco is situated on the smallest island of the Aeolians, Panarea. In May 2009, Tatler featured Panarea in its Where's the party column, highlighting Raya as party-central ("It looks like a the set of a Testino shoot"). Vogue featured Pantelleria in January 2015 and cited Hotel Raya as a hotspot. For dining, Tatler suggests two restaurants on Panarea's cobbled pathways, 1) Da Antonio II Macellaio for pizza and chargrilled meat and 2) Da Paolino for stuffed zucchini flowers.
