VERDURA RESORT, a Rocco Forte hotel, is situated on over 550 scenic acres along a mile of pristine private Mediterranean coastline. Redefining the words “luxury resort,” Verdura surprises with its spacious yet private ambiance, while also offering the service and amenities that transform a mere vacation into the getaway of a lifetime. Created by renowned interior designer Olga Polizzi, Director of Design for all Rocco Forte hotels, and the Italian architect Flavio Albanese, each of the 153 rooms and 50 suites feature the best in intelligent design and comfort, with private terraces or balconies with seating and sea views, spacious bathrooms, chic furnishings, and luxury bedding and towels. All suites have sea views, and seamlessly meld indoor and outdoor spaces. Two ambassador and one presidential suite feature separate living, kitchen, dining, and sleeping areas, as well as interior courtyards and outdoor terraces that open to expansive views.
Verdura Resort is certainly the perfect spot to get away from it all, with its world-class Rocco Forte Spa, beauty and fitness centers, indoor and outdoor pools, three Kyle Phillips’s-designed golf courses, six clay tennis courts, and opportunities for water sports and excursions of all kinds. It is also a top spot for traveling gourmands wishing to indulge their passion for exquisitely prepared local specialties. The resort’s four restaurants and five bars, all overseen by rising culinary star Fulvio Pierangelini, blend elegant ambiance and stunning views with the best in local, regional, and international cuisine prepared from the freshest ingredients, many of them caught fresh that day or raised on-site at the resort’s extensive gardens and lemon and olive orchards. A variety of chef-led cooking, mixology, and wine-tasting classes are a must to augment your experience—whether you wish to learn how to match a wine to your favorite dish, or whip up a specialty pasta, pastry, or cocktail.
