Each of our hotels is meticulously designed to accentuate the culture, history and aesthetic ethos of our host cities. In particular, our Forte Suites—the largest and most glamorous of our personalised suites—have been designed to give guests a rich sense of place, creating a timeless elegance that seamlessly blends the old and the new, the contemporary and the antique. But sometimes, look and feel is not enough. In order to enhance our guests’ understanding and enjoyment of our destinations, we’ve developed a series of intimate insider experiences, available when booking our exclusive Forte Suites.
In Rome, guests staying in our Forte Suites at Hotel de Russie will enjoy a personalised tour of the Eternal City with a professional guide on-hand, to uncover the secrets of the city that don’t appear in any guide books. In Florence, dilettanti will be treated to an insider tour of a 400-year old apothecary and its marvelous botanical garden.
At our Verdura Resort in Sicily, when you book a Villa our resident expert, U Canuscituri (the Connoisseur), will create a tailored itinerary for guests with personal introductions to people and places that only locals know about. And at Hotel Amigo in Brussels, a local guide will induct you into the city’s culture and place in art history, and whisk you off on a private tour of cultural centre, BOZAR.
For those with a passion for pampering, Hotel de Russie Forte Suite guests can have a complimentary restorative body massage for two, an in-suite blow-dry or professional shaving service. Guests at Verdura Villa, meanwhile, can opt for a Jet Lag Reviver treatment and shake off travel fatigue with an aromatherapy session for two using local Sicilian botanicals. And at the brand-new Hotel de la Ville in Rome, Forte Suite guests can enjoy a personalised in-room spa treatment.
If trips, tours and treatments are not to your taste, then feel free to personalise your stay in any of our Forte Suites with your preferred flowers, in-room amenities and much more.
