Verdura Golf & Spa Resort Sicily

The newest addition to hotelier Rocco Forte's expanding empire, Verdura — opening in May — sits on 1.2 miles of coastline and has all the trappings of a five-star resort. But unlike most luxe havens, Verdura uses solar panels to generate hot water and electricity and double-glazed windows to conserve energy, and it has banned cars from the grounds, opting instead for electric buggies.
