Verdura is fast becoming a sought-after and inspirational destination for conferences, presentations, discreet high-level meetings, creative blue-sky thinking, screenings, incentive programmes and private parties.
The luxurious resort, which is purpose-built over a vast 230 hectares to accommodate groups of all sizes without ever feeling crowded, offers the ideal combination of space, privacy and activity. All rooms have uninterrupted sea views and private terraces. It is easily accessible by air from around Europe, with Palermo and Trapani as the closest international airport.
Verdura offers its own spacious conference and business centre. The striking two-level structure features ten flexible meeting rooms; a double-height ballroom for up to 250 guests which can be sub-divided into three separate spaces; two larger rooms for up to 150 guests each; and an open-air amphitheatre which can seat up to 500 for a screening or live show.
Each meeting room benefits from generous natural light and is equipped with the latest technology, including WiFi and video conferencing. Other resort services include a 24-hour business centre, secretarial and translation services, worldwide courier service, and an on-site travel agency. Dining and drinks can be set up, flexibly, in the events areas as well as the resort’s four restaurants and outdoor spaces.
Group guests can, in addition, take advantage of a wide choice of activities at Verdura itself and trips further afield into the stunning island of Sicily. Windsurfing, kayaking, snorkelling, fishing, sailing and scuba diving are among water-based activities available as an extra; land-based activities include tennis, football and cooking and cocktail mixology masterclasses.
One day excursions can be arranged to The Valley of The Temples in Agrigento; the local town of Sciacca; the historic hill town of Caltabellotta; Planeta estate and vineyards, with tasting; the architectural park at Selinunte; or to join the ‘Sea salt & windmills’ tour of Trapani in a vintage Fiat 500.
