The Verdura Resort is a Rocco Forte property (the first resort hotel by this premium brand) and is set in rolling rural countryside occupying almost two kilometres of beautiful pristine coastline.
Exclusive rooms and suites are woven subtly into more than 500 acres of Sicilian landscape, housed within either ‘Courtyard’ or ‘Landscape’ buildings and making each feel peaceful and spacious. Each accommodation type has a slick modern design and boasts every comfort together with private terraces or balconies and breathtaking sea views.
There are endless activities and facilities to choose including two championship golf courses plus a nine-hole course and a driving range – perfect for even the most accomplished players. With six floodlit clay tennis courts, a football pitch, a vast 60-metre infinity pool, a beach with water sports, running tracks through lemon groves and a state of the art gym, there is plenty to keep you occupied.
The resort boasts world-class spa facilities from the 4,000m² Verdura Spa, housed in pavilions grouped around an open-air courtyard includes four outdoor thalassotherapy pools, a 20m indoor swimming pool, a double-height steam room and Finnish and infrared saunas. Enjoy a treatment using local products such as olive oil and Sicilian lemons, and afterwards you can work out in the 170m2 state of the art gym and fitness studio or polish your look in the resort’s hair and beauty salon. The spa is the winner of the Spafinder Wellness Travel Awards 2015’s Best for Couples and ‘Wow Factor’ Award.
Verdura Resort’s four restaurants and four bars serve up tantalising dining experiences with the signature restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine made only from the freshest local ingredients overseen by the celebrity chef Fulvio Pierangelini.

Staff were excellent…

Staff were excellent.
Facilities generally very good.
Food limited because some of the restaurants/bars had not opened yet (seasonal – I wasn’t aware of this when booking).
I asked for a resort with sandy beach, but the beach was shingle with a bit of sand added for the sun-loungers.
I also asked for a large outside pool but unfortunately although there was a large one it was unheated and therefore unusable.
The shower in our bathroom was very poor.
We liked the bikes!
