Rocco Forte Collection Opens First Resort

Posted: Jul. 6th, 2009  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Hotels: On August 1st the Rocco Forte Collection of European luxury hotels will open its first resort property, the $175 million Verdura Golf & Spa Resort, on the southern coast of Sicily. The Collection's 13th property, Verdura will be the only luxury resort in the Mediterranean offering a five-star experience across golf, hotel, dining and spa facilities. Featuring 203 ocean view rooms and suites, each with a private terrace overlooking 1.2 miles of private coastline, the 570-acre beachfront resort will have two championship golf courses, six tennis courts, a 43,000-sq.-ft. spa, fitness and yoga center, four restaurants, 55 private villas, a conference center, ballroom, open-air amphitheatre and helipad.

Located near the town of Sciacca 18 miles away from the historic city of Agrigento and its Valley of the Temples, the property's existing buildings have been restored while traditional materials including volcanic tufa, cane and wood have been used to create a luxurious resort that complements the natural landscape. To celebrate its much-anticipated opening, Verdura is offering guests visiting between August 1 and December 31 complimentary benefits including green fees for unlimited golf play on its three world-class courses, dinner every evening at any of its four superb restaurants and thalassotherapy spa treatments as well as a 50% discount on a second family room.
