Resort Description

Santa Caterina Village is for those seeking more ways to work up a sweat than on the sun loungers, with challenging dive courses and sports courts aplenty.

True to its name, the hotel sits in its own micro village complete with a shopping center, sports courts, 4 swimming pools, theater, and private beach. Take an underwater videography course,  play a game of basketball, learn to cook Calabrese style and catch some live music at a beautiful Greek ampitheater all without leaving your Mediterranean kingdom. 

The air conditioned rooms all have balconies, and all meals and soft drinks are included in your stay. The 5* PADI dive center on site will take you to the most beautiful dive sites along the Ionian and Tyrrhenina Sea. The Calabrian seabed is littered with fascinating wrecks, sheer vertical cliffs and caves that are full of life. Divers of all levels are catered for, including course tailored to the needs of disabled divers.
