Verdura Resort, a Rocco Forte Hotel, Sicily

Which championship golf course will you play today? Or will you be pampered in the spa, explore the island, or settle for some serious, Michelin-starred gastronomy?

Everyone plays differently. But if your idea of relaxation is a cracking round of golf on a links-style championship course, with steep cliffs and the sparkling Mediterranean as your backdrop – welcome to nirvana.

If you have different ideas – or like a wide choice of pleasures – you’re still in exactly the right place. Verdura offers you a choice of tennis courts, for example. And, if you’re travelling with a team of friends, there’s a full size football pitch! Plus a 60 metre infinity pool, a fully equipped gym…

And for less energetic relaxation you can explore the island’s rich history. Or take a gastronomic delight in the Verdura’s four restaurants and four bars – dining on food prepared by a Michelin-starred chef.

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
