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.
