Set along a quiet stretch of Sicily’s stunning southwest coast, Verdura Resort, a Rocco Forte Hotel is one of the most charming spots in the Mediterranean. Studded with orange groves and olive trees, it’s a beach resort that has it all: private white-sand beaches, tennis and padel courts, and two championship 18-hole golf courses.
The Family Suite is one of the most exclusive abodes at the resort. Spanning 1,200 sq ft, it features one elegant grand suite and a superior deluxe seafront room overlooking the glittering ocean.
Adorned with beautiful objets d’art crafted by local talent, the suite is a perfect home away from home in Sicily. Boasting two spacious private terraces dotted with sun loungers and an enclosed private courtyard, it’s an unforgettable location for your next family vacation.
The resort has an excellent Kids Club – Verdùland – where little ones can take part in a range of fun activities from cooking classes and astronomy lessons to arts and crafts, and sports tournaments. And, if you want to sneak off for a romantic meal, 24-hour babysitters are available. Kids can practice their favorite sport or learn a new one throughout the summer. The resort offers a wide range of academies including but not limited to fencing, golf, tennis and swimming. All sports have resident instructors, who are, in some cases, former champions in their field.
There is a selection of gourmet eateries to choose from including Zagara where you can enjoy a vibrant Mediterranean menu bursting with local produce, Amare – a gorgeous seafood restaurant located right on the beachfront and Liolà, a relaxed and rustic Sicilian trattoria offering stunning clifftop views over the sea.
Grown-ups can also make the most of the resort’s expansive wellness offerings; the 43,000-sq-ft Irene Forte Spa (launched by the daughter of legendary hotelier Sir Rocco Forte) is well worth a visit.
Set around an idyllic open-air courtyard, the spa features four outdoor thalassotherapy pools, infrared and Finnish saunas, a double-height steam room and a beauty salon. There are also 11 treatment rooms where you can enjoy a collection of facials and body treatments tailored around Irene Forte’s ethical skincare products, made with ingredients grown at Verdura’s organic farm.
A team of specialists – including osteopaths, nutritionists and mindfulness coaches – are on hand to provide programs specially tailored to guest’s individual needs.
