The hotel Verdura Golf & Spa Resort, 40 km from Agrigento, is situated on the valley of the river Verdura on an area of 230 hectares, between olive and lemon trees. It is a luxury oasis immersed in the peace of the Sicilian countryside; the area is not well known yet by mass tourism and this is the feature that gives to this resort more exclusiveness. The international airport Falcone- Borsellino is about 120 km far from the hotel.
The project of the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort was born in 2001 and after various delays and bureaucratic obstacles turned out to come to light in July 2009. The architect Flavio Albanese inspired himself to the principle of art and nature fusion, with the aim of creating a deep Mediterranean atmosphere, with original contemporary nuances. Materials like stone, sand and wood of the hotel’s exteriors are in harmony with the hand painted majolica, with the colour of the ground that recapture the ancient Sicilian villas style and also with the design lamps and the modern dark wooden poster beds. The concern towards ecology has taken the hotel to implant photovoltaic systems as well as rain water recycling systems used for golf fields irrigation.
The rooms of the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort are furnished with a fresh and soft contemporary style that reflects the Sicilian soul. All the 203 rooms have a wonderful sea view and they are divided in different categories: Deluxe, Superior Deluxe, Junior Suite and other Suites categories. Among all, the Presidential Suite is the biggest and the most exclusive one with a surface of 175 squared metres: it is situated near the sea and it has 3 terraces and a private swimming pool; it is composed by a wide living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a bathroom for guests and a wide and comfortable bedroom.
The wellness centre of Verdura Golf & Spa Resort is at the leading edge in Europe; the qualified personnel will prepare for each guest a tailor made program with fitness and wellness treatments. There are different services: thalassic therapy, hydro massage, sauna, Turkish bath, emotional showers, yoga and massages.
The refined restaurant “La Zagara” proposes a Mediterranean cuisine with deep Sicilian influence. The restaurant “Liola” is recommended for an informal dinner: it is a regional eating house able to surprise all the guests with the Sicilian traditional dishes. Buffet breakfast is served at the “Buon Giorno” restaurant, which is an exclusive area for young guests during the evening where they can taste delicious and healthy food cooked just for them.
The key point of the Resort is doubtless the Golf: 120 hectares fully dedicated to this sport, with two 18 holes and one 9 holes courses, designed by the Californian Architect Kyle Phillips. The Verdura Golf & Spa Resort courses have been projected with his philosophy, they all blend in the natural environment that surrounds them and underlines their beauty and identity. Besides the golf, the guests can enjoy jogging routes, a tennis court, a gym and an open air swimming pool that with its 60 metres is one of the biggest in Europe.
