Rocco Forte Hotels

Dramatic seaside views. Fragrant orange and olive groves. Swaying palms and the scent of wild rosemary. Verdura Resort is a not your usual corporate retreat. Whether you’re planning a large group getaway or a more intimate event, our fully-equipped meeting rooms, superb facilities and stunning sea view rooms are guaranteed to keep clients happy.

Day One: Sicilian Landscapes and Local Flavors

Start the day on foot, wandering through Verdura’s aromatic orange groves and wild coastal paths. A 7km route takes guests right through the heart of the resort’s stunning Sicilian landscapes. After working up an appetite, put Verdura’s produce to good use with a cooking class using ingredients grown in the garden. Discover the irresistible flavors and aromas of the region while preparing an authentic Italian meal.

Day Two: Ancient Sites and World-Class Wine

Spend the morning at the magnificent Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. Groups can explore the ancient city of Akragas before stopping at the Scala dei Turchi cliffs. Famous for their bright white rocks and deep cerulean seas, this is a truly unforgettable sight. Assisted by Verdura’s knowledgeable Sommelier, your clients can while away an afternoon savoring local Sicilian wines. The perfect group experience, they’ll learn about the region’s renowned viticulture, and sample some of its best vintages.

Day Three: Active Adventures and Beach Olympics

Get your team out on the track for a morning of racing at the nearby go-karting course. A fun team-building exercise, it’s the ideal activity for a corporate retreat. In the afternoon, continue the fun with our Beach Olympics. Set on Verdura’s stunning private beach, this entertaining activity involves a series of fun beach challenges and competitive games.

Day Four: Sciacca, Caltabellotta and Dinner under the Olive Trees

Explore the charming port town of Sciacca, famous for its thermal waters and pretty medieval center. From there, it’s on to the mountaintop town of Caltabellotta for sprawling Sicilian views and swaying almond trees. As the sun sets, Verdura’s beautiful olive groves provide the perfect location for an
alfresco dinner under the stars. Accommodating up to 270 guests, we can’t think of a more memorable setting.

Day Five: Sporting Events and Seaside Cocktails

With two 18-hole championship courses, Verdura’s superb facilities make hosting a golf tournament a breeze. Football and tennis tournaments can also be arranged, or for a more relaxing experience, clients can make use of our exceptional spa. A fitting finale, your clients can spend their last night learning to mix cocktails at Verdura’s Granita Bar. Against a sparkling seaside backdrop, they’ll shake, sieve and sample a delicious range of drinks. The perfect toast to their trip.
