The Verdura Golf & Spa Resort features 203 rooms, including 50 suites, split into a number of different categories, meaning there's something to suit a wide range of needs and budgets. No matter which room type you choose, be it a lead in Deluxe Room or a spacious Grand Suite, you'll find impeccable levels of style, privacy and comfort, matched by magnificent views across the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

The resort has a choice of four restaurants, including the fantastic Zagara and Amare. At Zagara, you'll enjoy inspiring Mediterranean cuisine, perfectly prepared from the freshest island produce by head chef Fulvio Pierangelini, matched with the finest Sicilian wines and served in a romantic candlelit setting. The resort's second restaurant, Amare, features a lively cooking station and relaxed atmosphere. Here you can enjoy fresh seafood, barbequed meats and the local speciality 'crudo', which has been enjoyed in Sicilian fishing villages for generations.

Verdura is a world-class golf resort, with two 18-hole, links-style championship courses and a shorter nine-hole course, all designed by Kyle Phillips. The 570-acre site runs along the coastline and offers spectacular views and a truly breathtaking golf experience. If golf isn't your thing then the Verdura Tennis Academy welcomes players of all abilities to its six clay courts, and the pristine beaches and warm waters of the Med are the perfect playground to try your hand at waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and sailing under the guidance of qualified instructors. And if that all sounds like a bit too much like hard work, head to the resort's superb spa, set across 4,000 square metres and offering open-air thalassotherapy pools, an indoor lap pool, sauna, hammam and a range of massages and treatments. There's also a 60 metre outdoor pool, fitness studio, complimentary yoga and pilates classes, a nail bar and hair salon.
