This week Silversea Cruises and Rocco Forte Hotels announced a partnership that brings two privately owned, Italian heritage hospitality companies together for the first time, giving guests an ultra-luxury experience – both by land and by sea. Silversea’s elegant, intimate ships are small enough to sail up narrow waterways, right into the heart of a city, to the doorsteps of Rocco Forte Hotels.
As a result of this special partnership, there will be opportunities for guests of these two companies to receive an array of benefits. Silversea is offering exclusive benefits to guests of Rocco Forte Hotels, including savings on fares, VIP bonuses at embarkation, a private culinary event for two, plus a dinner invitation at the Captain’s or Senior Officers’ table. Silversea guests who choose to stay with Rocco Forte Hotels will enjoy upgrades, transfers and unpacking services at the hotel, as well as VIP amenities.
This union harmonises both Silversea’s warm Italian hospitality and Rocco Forte’s Anglo-Italian flair – both of which deliver unparalleled levels of comfort and personalised service. These two brands share a vision for a commitment to excellence. Similar to Rocco Forte Hotels’ rooms and suites, Silversea’s suites are spacious and beautifully appointed with fine furnishings. Every suite has an ocean view and butler service, and many offer private verandas.
Sir Rocco Forte, chairman of Rocco Forte Hotels said, “Having known Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio for many years, it is a particular pleasure to enter into a partnership with a company with such similar roots to our own. Together, we will share the best of land and sea while providing our guests with the exceptional personalised service that is common to both our brands.”
Silversea chairman, Mr Lefebvre said, “I am extremely happy to welcome Rocco Forte Hotels as a partner of Silversea. Sir Rocco Forte and I share a personal friendship that was formed long ago. Now, it is with shared values that we cooperate to bring extraordinary service to our guests.”
