Boasting two golf courses called the East and West and designed by Kyle Philips - this is truly one of the best 36 hole combinations in Europe.
Verdura Spa is one of the finest and advanced well being centres in Europe. The spa is 4000m2 in size and has a 25m indoor spa pool, large Hammam, saunas, modern gym and relaxation. Be sure to sample the outdoor thalassotherapy pools which overlook the golf courses and offer views over the mountains, a simply stunning setting.
Verdura Resort is situated on the south-west coast of Sicily. Set in a valley of olive groves near the small village of Verdura, the luxury resort is 30km from the ancient town of Agrigento.
The closest airport is at Palermo, the island’s capital, where you will find several car-rental companies. From the airport the resort is just over an hour’s drive through beautiful countryside, along the E90, A29 and E931 roads.
Furnished in a fresh contemporary style that reflects the essence of Sicily, the guest rooms at Verdura Resort provide an elegant and relaxing personal space. There are 203 in total, each with its own uninterrupted view across the sparkling Mediterranean Sea from a private terrace.
Set across 230 hectares of olive groves and countryside, the rooms are in two distinct types of building, Courtyard and Landscape, which are woven subtly into the landscape and offer a real sense of privacy and space. Natural materials such as stone, sand, wood and cane echo the traditional architecture of Sicily, and rooms make imaginative use of both outdoor and indoor space.
Dining is an unforgettable experience at Verdura Resort that offers 4 elegant restaurants and bars, each with a difference ambience and experience: Zagara, this exclusive à la carte restaurant serves fine Mediterranean cuisine prepared with the freshest local ingredients; Amare Seafood Market (Seasonal Opening), features a lively open kitchen where chefs prepare the freshest fish and seafood from the large market-style display;
Buon Giorno, this casual restaurant serves an international buffet breakfast; Amare (seasonal opening), this beach restaurant has outdoor seating overlooking the sea and serves fresh and simple cuisine including: a selection of antipasti, salads, grilled fish, barbecue and pizza; Liolà, a typical Sicilian Trattoria with beautiful cliff top views of the sea, serving home made pasta, salads, fish, shellfish and ice-cream with granita. Liolà also has its own pizzeria.
Two magnificent links courses East and West both with great mountain and ocean views, plus a lovely par 3 nine hole course, designed to sharpen up your short game. Kyle Philips has excelled in creating such an authentic yet new links experience, with pot bunkers, rye grass and the sea breezes you would always expect of a fine golfing location. If you have played the Grove or Kingsbarns, or Dundonald Links in the UK you will know how good Kyle Philips courses are, Verdura is no exception.
The stunning layout of both courses ensures an almost private members course and club feel throughout. The European Tour has already graced this superb club with the Sicilian Open in 2012 using a combination of both East and West courses and now twice per week you can play the Sicilian Open course, which in effect gives you 3 golf courses to choose from onsite! A combination of wide forgiving fairways, long par 4s, deceiving par 3s and signature 18th hole on the West Course which hugs the coastline all amounts to an unforgettable golfing experience.
The holiday went like clockwork, all the travel arrangements worked perfectly and the welcome and service we received from the staff at Verdura, both in the hotel and the golf club was first class.
