From London to Rome, Sicily to St Petersburg, each property is as unique as the place it calls home – each steeped in the spirit of its setting, united by the Forte family’s signature Anglo-Italian style, sophistication and warmth. Expect national landmarks at the city’s best addresses and heavenly retreats. Secret gardens, Sicilian-inspired spas, rooftop bars and world-leading restaurants. Imaginative, original design, inspired by each locale, alike in quality and comfort. Genuine, individualised service and an open, easy atmosphere. Expect an unforgettable stay – and expect to return.
Twenty-five years ago, Sir Rocco Forte and his sister Olga Polizzi joined forces to change the way we see and experience modern luxury. They had a vision for a new paradigm of hospitality: sophisticated, design-driven hotels, characterised by a unique marriage of British polish and Continental flair.

Our Rocco Forte Kids programme ensures younger guests will be just as pampered as the grown-ups. We welcome children of all ages – our programme is tailored for babies (ages 0-3), kids (ages 4-12) and teens (ages 13-16).
Each of our hotels has a special animal theme with details that children will love, from personalised Rocco Forte Kids passport at check-in and welcome treats, to pint-sized bathrobes and slippers and animal cuddly toys. Older guests can enjoy bespoke itineraries created by our Concierge team, special spa treatments or interactive entertainment in their rooms.
Whether you’re staying at Hotel de Russie in Rome, The Balmoral in Edinburgh or another of our European hotels, we encourage you to treat yourself to a spa ritual that harnesses regional produce and supports local communities.
