Where is The White Lotus filmed? Season 2 filming locations for Sky series, which hotel is it, can you stay
Comedy series The White Lotus has returned to season 2 with a brand new location at the other side of the world
The White Lotus follows the exploits of eccentric guests over the course of a week at a tropical holiday resort. The HBO comedy series, which stars Jennifer Coolidge, Theo James, and Michael Imperioli was filmed on location at a real hotel, and you can book to stay there yourself, budget permitting.
Where is The White Lotus season 2 filmed?
The show follows the staff of a hotel chain called the White Lotus, and each season is set at a different White Lotus venue. Season one was set in Hawaii and filmed at the luxury Four Seasons Maui at Wailea, Hawaii, USA.
Season two of The White Lotus was filmed 8,000 miles away from Hawaii, although the hotel chain remains the same. It was filmed at the Four Seasons hotel in San Domenico Palace, in the commune of Taormina in Sicily, a major Mediterranean island of the south coast of Italy.
Production began in February 2022 and wrapped in the summer. The hotel is an historic former 14th-century convent which boasts panoramic views of Mount Etna and the ancient Greek theatre.
Can you stay at the White Lotus hotel?
Yes, you can book a stay at the Four Seasons in Sicily, however, as it is a luxury hotel chain and the San Domenico Palace is in a much sought after location, it won’t come cheap.
A one week stay for two adults in a sea view premium room in July next year will set you back just over £12,000. If you want a terrace, then the bill creeps up by another £800. And if that’s not luxurious enough, then you can book the Princess Cecile Suite, which comes with views of the sea, town and gardens, and 969 square feet of space, and will set you back just over £5,000 per night - or around £35,000 for a week’s stay.
There’s not really a cheap option - the best you can get for the height of summer is a superior room for roughly £1,300 per night, more than most people spend on a month’s rent. But you do get a fair bit of bang for your buck - there’s an onsite spa, clifftop infinity pool, and award winning restaurants available.
The hotel is located in the gorgeous hilltop town of Taormina and guides are available to take guests on a tour, taking in the Sicilian culture and cuisine. Other activities available in the area include luxury cruises, snorkelling, and a picnic lunch prepared by Four Seasons chefs.
You can also stay at the season one hotel in Hawaii, though prices are even more crazy, starting at a little over £1,200 per night in July up to just shy of £30,000 per night for the presidential three-bedroom suite.
