If you want to get away from it all and spoil yourself rotten The Verdura Golf and Spa Resort is the place. Tucked away on the island of Sicily  on 230 hectares of Mediterranean coastline you will find this exclusive resort with Rocco Forte spa and golf course.

Designed by Olga Polizzi and architect Flavio Albanese the 168 bedrooms, 32 suites and three villa suites are beautifully appointed. All the luxury category rooms and suites look out over the Mediterranean. The meal options are there to tempt you, from breakfast on the terrace, to the seafood restaurant on the beach and Trattoria style food at the clifftop Liola.

The firm of Kyle Phillips is responsible for the challenging  Verdura 18-hole championship golf course and a nine hole par 3 course. You can gaze at the Mediterranean from almost every hole. The fairways are open and there are plenty of bunkers to capture your shots.  It’s enough of a tease to keep you wanting more.
