Following the success of Irene Forte Skincare, Rocco Forte Hotels has announced the launch of Irene Forte Spas on 1st April 2022.
Villa Igiea, the Rocco Forte Hotel in Palermo, will launch its new spa with the concept, in addition to Verdura Resort in Sicily, Masseria Torre Maizza in Puglia, and Hotel de la Ville in Rome.
Irene Forte’s personal ambition to create incomparable spas has resulted in a range of treatments and experiences that diffuse the essence of Mediterranean wellness.
The location of each of the Irene Forte Spas offers a unique and distinctive experience. Masseria Torre Maizza presents an intimate spa ideal for a romantic moment of indulgence in the Puglian olive groves, while Verdura’s expansive spa is set to a backdrop of the rolling Sicilian terrain.
Across Sicily, the Spa at Villa Igiea overlooks the Gulf of Palermo, a tranquil setting complete with blue skies and aqua sea views; and Hotel de la Ville’s enigmatic spa is a cocooning hideaway in the center of Rome.
Each experience fuses the regenerative powers of nature and science, while also highlighting the Italian heritage of Irene Forte Spas. Locally made Burgio Bells are rung at the beginning and end of every treatment, and handmade Sicilian ceramics are used in the treatments for inhalation bowls, foot bowls, and to display products.
The spas are working with the Sustainable Spa Association and have partnered with positive change agents, such as First Mile to recycle all professional products, and B Corp certified company WAMI to supply water. Irene Forte Spas work with local artisans and retail sustainable Italian brands, such as B Corp certified company Back Label and Danié Made in Sicily.
In addition, the spas only use recycled paper to print; they are also focused on eradicating single-use plastic, minimising their carbon footprint, and working to become water equal.
