Verdura Resort, a Rocco Forte Hotel
Imagine hundreds of acres of sun-kissed Mediterranean coastline, glorious Sicilian countryside and an impeccable hotel combining to create an oasis of luxury, style and blissful escapism. With white-sand beaches, championship golf, a flagship spa and fabulous food and wine, Verdura is precisely that and more.
Modern architecture meets old-world Sicily in beautiful harmony, with a simple, sleek design and charming Italian accents permeating every corner of this expansive property. The 168 rooms, 32 suites and three villa suites are generously sized, with four-poster beds, billowing white muslins, and balconies or terraces overlooking the sea and lush grounds.
Named after the fragrant orange blossom that perfumes the estate, Zagara is an elegant dining spot, dishing up fresh local ingredients with delicate, delectable flair. Walk across the sand and step inside Amare, serving fresh seafood on the beachfront, or head into Trattoria Liolà, a Mediterranean masterpiece offering traditional trattoria-style dishes in a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. Light bites and refreshing cocktails can also be found in the Granita Bar and Pool Bar.
Experience the joy of an Italian getaway while immersing in an array of outdoor activities. Tee off on the championship course, explore the vast estate and beyond on bikes, leave young ones free to become budding sports stars at the golf, tennis, football and swimming academies, or head to the beach for watersports. Just be sure to leave time to bask by the 60-metre infinity pool and indulge in the various wellness treatments available at the signature spa.
