Whats hot


Rocco in Sicily

Just visited the new Rocco Forte hotel on Sicily and this is definitely going to be one to keep an eye on.  Set to open in July 2009 this ultra cool new hotel from Rocco’s illustrious collection has a very modern feel  set in the heart of traditional Sicily.  Reaching it takes you well of the beaten track through olive groves and Sicilian farms. 

You then arrive at the huge Verdura estate equipped with its new golf course and an enviable sea view along the whole of the estate.  It is this uninterrupted sea view that is enjoyed by all the rooms regardless of the category, which I think is pretty important in a hotel by the sea!  Although not yet open so I couldn’t sample the food or service you can be guaranteed that these will be as good as all of his other hotels (the De Russi in Rome for example)

Like all new hotels the gardens will take a little time to bed down and grow up but this will definitely be a hotel to consider for next summer.
