Verdura Golf & Spa Resort, Sicily.

Sicily. The things that come to mind are, the mafia, the sea, and food. Judging from the beauty of the Southern Coast near Caltabellota, it's no wonder that the Rocco Forte Collection has picked Sicily as the place to open it's 13th property, Verdura Golf and Spa Resort.

The resort has two championship 18-hole golf courses and one 9-hole course. The spa complex has 2 thalassotherapy pools, 11 treatment rooms (each with its own terrace) and 2 swimming pools. The treatment rooms are set around an open courtyard, and the treatments use Mediterranean sea water and locally grown lemons and oranges. There is also an open air amphitheatre and its own private beach.

The jewel in the crown must be the 1883 square foot presidential room. It comes with 3 terraces and a breathtaking view of the sea, its own private swimming pool, courtyard and a walk-in wardrobe.
