A Romantic Respite

Spend the day in your own private beach cabana as you look out at the crystal-clear water together, enjoy complete intimacy with a sensual couple's massage, or set sail on your own yacht as you discover hidden coves and stunning sunsets. Not only that, but Danai Beach Resort & Villas also offers the perfect location for a wedding!

The Ultimate Game of Golf

Looking for the perfect place to practice your golf swing? Look no further than the Dave Thomas-designed 18-hole, par 72 golf course at The Ritz-Carlton, Abama. Set around twenty-two lakes encircled by 25,000 palm trees and picturesque waterfalls, the course offers beautiful views over the Atlantic Ocean to the island of La Gomera. Its signature hole ten is a par 5, 480-metre-high dogleg to the left, protected by the course's boundaries on the right and by a series of lakes on the left. Guests can also enjoy the facilities of the Golf Academy, which provides one-to-one golf lessons, as well as a Pro Shop stocked with leading specialist golf merchandise.

A Taste of Your Destination

Head to the seas aboard Silversea's Silver Moon, the first ship to fully adopt Silversea's S.A.L.T (Sea and Land Taste) concept, which focuses on bringing the authentic taste of each destination to guests. Along with ever-changing menus (depending on the destination) in the S.A.L.T restaurant, there is a state-of-the-art cookery lab where guests can learn to make delicious delicacies and try something new. The S.A.L.T concept also incorporates a programme of culinary-focused excursions, available at an additional cost - ranging from visiting a vineyard in Sicily to authentic Sri Lankan tea tasting, depending where in the world you are. Giving guests a chance to travel deeper through engaging experiences and local food culture, S.A.L.T should not be missed!

Barbadian Romance

A romantic retreat awaits at Fairmont Royal Pavilion, set on possibly the island's most superb beach with half a mile of white sand and jaw-droppingly clear water. After embracing the Caribbean Sea with a wealth of watersports, couples can toast to each other with cocktails as they admire the spellbinding sunset, before a tiki torch-lit private dinner on the beach. The stylish and newly renovated guest accommodation takes full advantage of the amazing ocean views, with suites offering a range of additional benefits, including a private furnished decked terrace just steps from the ocean, butler service and complimentary canapés.

Old-World Glamour

For a slice of old-world glamour on the Sicilian Coast, Villa Sant'Andrea is a sparkling beach residence with spectacular terraced gardens which lead down to a picturesque pebbled beach, offering understated luxury away from the bustle of Taormina. For those who want to stay within the resort, why not relax in a sumptuous beach cabana or start the day with an open-air yoga class by the sea. Alternatively, for those wanting a more explosive experience, a visit to Mt Etna tops the bill. Discover its constantly evolving lava landscapes on an once-in-a-lifetime guided trek. Walk up to the two inactive Silvestri craters, which date from the 1892 eruption, discover some of the most recent lava flows, skirt around the rims of craters, dodge steam vents and be wowed by the lunar-like scenery.

Memorable Experiences

Many of Verdura Resort's most memorable experiences revolve around fine cuisine, with a strong focus on the local delights of Sicily. There are cooking classes and wine-tasting programmes that introduce the best produce on offer across the island, or guests might choose to focus on the classic Italian staples of pasta, pizza, chocolate and pastries. For an alternative taste of Verdura Resort, mixology classes reveal the secrets behind the resort's best cocktails, so that the holiday atmosphere can be continued at home.
