Verdura Resort, a Rocco Forte Hotel: The Detox Destination
Posted: 04 February 2016
The elegance and sophistication of Rocco Forte luxury hotels has long been a firm favourite with our discerning clients but the brand’s beguiling emphasis on indulgent luxury holidays is now even more inviting. Spring is so often the season for seeking rejuvenation and renewal for mind, body and spirit and Rocco Forte Hotels have recognised their glamorous guests’ need for luxury wellness in the most sumptuous of settings.
New for 2016, Rocco Forte Hotels has launched a complete wellness programme to coincide with the arrival of the ultra-glamorous Rocco Forte Spa at their Verdura Resort in Sicily, Italy. Verdura Resort was Rocco Forte Hotels’s flagship ‘resort’ hotel and continues to set the supreme standard which has made the Rocco Forte brand so successful and admired. It is, therefore, fitting that this stunning Italian resort would be the birthplace of the brand’s new ultra-luxurious venture, Rocco Forte Spas.
The theme of health and wellness permeates every aspect of the Rocco Forte Spa programme. As testament to the brand’s desire to perfect the finer aspects of luxury hospitality, the spa programme offers considered and intelligent health and fitness opportunities for guests seeking rejuvenation and relaxation on every level. The programmes emphasise not only pleasurable, energising spa experiences, but authentic educational routines, which ensure the client will continue to benefit from their treatments even after they return home.
Using their signature line of expertly designed cosmetics and health products, Forte Organics, Rocco Forte Spa seeks to restore, renew and reinvigorate for a premier pampering unlike any other. Forte Organics products are rich in organic, natural, as well as active, Sicilian ingredients, with many having been handpicked from Verdura Resort itself, such is the level of commitment to wellness being offered by the Rocco Forte brand.
Rocco Forte Rituals are the treatments available in each of the Rocco Forte Spas, designed to leave guests feeling fully indulged and at ease. Rocco Forte Rituals include a Facial Ritual, Back Ritual and Body Ritual, a variety of Couple’s Rituals. The clifftop setting of Verdura Resort and captivating charm of Sicily, make this spa experience entirely unforgettable; the perfect place to get away from it all and relieve all worries and strains.
A further aspect of the Rocco Forte Spa offering is Rocco Forte Fitness, which is inspired by the Forte family’s personal commitment to sport. It is lead by an innovative approach to fitness, with the most cutting-edge workouts and equipment, and expert professional trainers on hand to guide and motivate, ensuring a complete approach to your wellness and active encouragement to achieve your fitness goals.
To complement all that energising gym work, Rocco Forte Hotels has also created an innovative nutrition programme to provide guests with healthy meals packed full of flavour and goodness. The Rocco Forte Nourish menus have been created in partnership with well-known local nutritionists and expert chefs, ensuring that guests have an abundance of interesting, inspiring and tasty dishes, sourced from fresh, local Italian ingredients, which don’t cut out the flavour with the calories!
Set amid picturesque olive groves, oranges and lemon trees, Verdura Resort philosophy is based on Sebastian Kneipp’s five pillars: water, plants, exercise, nutrition and balance. Each pillar improves wellbeing, but all five have been carefully blended at Verdura Resort to ensure guests receive the best care and most empowering, uplifting and energising programme possible.
