Rocco Forte Wellness Programmes

Our wellness programmes offer a balanced and integrated approach to health, using state-of-theart techniques, with programmes  individualised to every guest



The proprietary Irene Forte Skincare range achieves outstanding results with natural ingredients in formulations shaped by 35 years of skincare research and development. Based on the research of her Scientific Director Dr. Francesca Ferri -a pioneer in the medical use of plant extracts to treat skin conditions- Irene has introduced novel ingredients in products which have shown extraordinary results in independent clinical and user trials. Irene Forte Skincare products are suitable for all skin types and have even been clinically approved for sensitive skin.



The core ingredients are harvested at Verdura Resort's Organic Farm in Sicily, and alongside these, Irene Forte Skincare has integrated zero-waste upcycled ingredients, made from nutrient-rich plant-based leftovers. Irene’s insistence on plant-based sources means all the ingredients are certified vegan.

Irene Forte’s approach is distinguished by her high ethical standards that make sustainability a primary business focus. In recognition of these standards, Irene Forte Skincare has been awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for sustainable excellence.

Our Nourish Food Offering & Spa Bar

In line with the Nourish concept, Michelin-starred chef Fulvio Pierangelini has created health-focused menus for Verdura. The dishes are created with organic, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients – many hand-picked from Verdura’s own orchards and organic farm, Verdura Società Agricola. Carefully prepared to protect their nutritional value for exquisite, imaginative creations that benefit the entire body, his extensive menu of dishes, snacks, smoothies and infusions is served in the Spa Bar. Healthy Nourish menus are offered in all of Verdura’s restaurants, on our breakfast buffet and in In Room Dining and our In Room Bars.



Enjoy a consultation with our in-house nutritionist. Off the back of this, we can create a personalised Nourish food programme for you to enjoy during your stay at Verdura.

COVID19 Notice


Our top priority has always been to bring a safe experience of healing and rejuvenation to our guests, and our resolve is now stronger than ever before. Our team has been working hard to raise the bar of hygiene and sanitation, as well as considering every step of treatment processes to ensure we meet your needs in a focused and safe manner that is in accordance with the World Health Organization and local and national regulatory guidelines.


All spa and fitness services must be booked in advance. This includes all treatments and beauty services, use of the gym, fitness classes, and the swimming pool. We have also reduced our daily number of treatments.

This will allow us to limit traffic in the spa areas, and give us adequate time to clean and disinfect all spaces and areas after each guest use.

Please note that the thalassotherapy pools, sauna and steam room will remain closed for the time being. We have also reduced our opening hours from 11am to 6pm.


We are committed to meet or exceed all local and national regulatory guidelines relating to sanitation and hygiene.

All staff members will undergo temperature checks on arrival each day and anyone showing any Covid-19 symptoms or having come into contact with someone showing Covid-19 symptoms in the last 14 days, will be asked to remain at home.

Strict sanitation procedures have been implemented for all areas of the spa. Our spa Team Members have also been thoroughly trained in the new procedures.

Our Receptionists will be wearing masks; they will welcome you upon arrival and help you navigate the spa.

Therapists will wear disposable masks and gloves during treatments. Additional Personal Protective Equipment requests can be made in advance of your treatment via the online Consultation Form.

All shared amenities have been replaced with single-use amenities, hand sanitiser and sanitation wipes are available throughout the spa areas, and furniture and equipment has been moved to ensure safe distances.


To keep our guests and Team Members safe, we ask that you:

  • Refrain from visiting the spa if you or someone you have come into contact with has had Covid-19-like symptoms in the last 14 days;
  • Share special sanitation or hygiene requests prior to arriving at the spa via the online Consultation Form;
  • Respect the spa’s sanitation and hygiene standards as communicated by Team Members and through signage throughout the spa;
  • Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds prior to beginning a treatment;
  • Respect social distancing measures put in place throughout the spa areas.


We have handpicked some of our favourite ‘touch less’ treatments just for you:

This treatment begins with our Apricot Creamy Body Scrub to prepare the skin. Endosphères follows where the Compressive Microvibration® method is coupled with our Energising Arnica Body Oil mixed with our Sculpting Blackcurrant Body Oil to improve lymphatic and venous circulation and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Leaves skin silky smooth and body sculpted.

This complete treatment begins with Endosphères and its Compressive Microvibration® method to improve lymphatic and venous circulation, reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten and tone the muscles. For an added boost and double the results, it ends with a full-body massage using our Sicilian oils and Rosehip Body Mask.
