Rocco Forte opens first resort in Sicily

The Rocco Forte Collection's first ever golf and spa resort, Verdura in Sicily, opened its doors yesterday, signalling the company's entry into the luxury resort sector.

The 230-hectare resort is situated in South West Sicily, one hour's drive from Palermo.

It offers 203 rooms, 1.8km of private coastline, two 18-hole and one nine hole golf courses, a 4,000sqm spa and four restaurants.

There are also ten meeting rooms including a double-height ballroom for up to 300 guests, which can be divided into three separate rooms, and a 1000 sqm open-air amphitheatre that can be used for screenings.

To celebrate the launch of Verdura Golf & Spa Resort, and the recently opened Augustine in Prague, Rocco Forte has launched a special introductory offer for the C&I market.

Event planners can book groups of 15 or more into either property for €350 per room per night, inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner in addition to a daily meeting room or a leisure activity, including golf, spa and tours. 

The offer is available for stays from 27 July 2009 to 30 April 2010 and includes a complimentary room for every 15 rooms booked.
