The title of this resort should give you a clue about what it holds in store; lots of golf and spa days. Both activities are sure to bring a smile to the face of people looking to pamper and treat themselves on holiday. But, what the title doesn’t begin to detail are the fragrant, sun-kissed olive groves and gardens the Verdura Spa is surrounded by. Or, the Vita Health program that is run by nutritionists and physicians to help you achieve a better, healthier, version of – well, you. True golf enthusiasts will know that not all golf courses are created even and this one is set on a breath-taking Sicilian beach and designed by renowned golf architect Kyle Phillips of The Grove in England and Kingsbarns in Scotland, fame. Even those who are less enamoured with the sport will appreciate the beautiful blue sky, surrounded by the sight of sea and an extraordinary landscape when standing on the green.
The Verdura Golf and Spa Resort is nestled on the south coast of Sicily near the seaside town of Sciacca. Set over 230 hectares of stunning landscape, it boasts 1.8 kilometres of coastline, which means you can walk down from you room to the beautiful pebble beach leading right to the water.

Why We Like It
Places that cater for adults as well as little ones are always a favourite here at Black Tomato. With a world-class golf course and spa, the resort well and truly has the big kids covered. But, children will be just as charmed by the multitude of activities on offer in the two aged kids clubs. Young’uns will learn a welcome dance, have a cake party, go on treasure hunts, enjoy tennis aerobics and golf clinics, play with clay and learn to make pizza. While their older siblings can join in touch rugby, beach tennis, ping pong, darts and volleyball. Or relax in the cinema, take a cooking class or join in at the teenager’s cocktail and beach parties.
