A masterpiece of elegance started in the 60’s by Jacques Couëlle, and marvellously reinterpreted by 4BI & Associés through 71 new rooms and suites, a new lobby and bar, an uplifted arrival experience. As the day unfolds, Hotel Cala di Volpe’s restaurants are an inspired backdrop where the discerning and sophisticated converge: the Japanese cuisine Nobu style of Matsuhisa at Cala di Volpe completes the vibrant gastronomic traditions at Barbecue and Cala restaurants. SHISEIDO pampers at the brand-new spa, where Eastern philosophies meet Western technology.

A boutique hotel located between the green Ogliastra woods and the blue sea of Santa Maria Navarrese.

28 rooms, a restaurant, a lounge bar, a beach bar & grill, a swimming pool and a relaxation area in the pine forest overlooking the sea.
The use of materials from the Island, such as the exposed granite of the façades, is combined with the contemporary style of the personalised ceramics, the finely embroidered linens and the oak floors.
Each space gets its name from a Sardinian village and follows a specific theme.
The same atmosphere and attention to detail is also evident in the restaurant, where the chef delights guests with dishes rich in local fragrances and flavours.
Località Su Cannisoni, 09040 Castiadas CA, Italy
La Villa del Re Hotel is an ideal place for people who are looking for a fully relaxing stay: located in the middle of a large and beautiful park, with pines and palm trees alternating with the Mediterranean scrub.

Via Donnigheddu, 13, 07020 Golfo Aranci SS, Italy
Those who know Sardinia know that it is hard not to fall in love with it. This is exactly what happened to my parents; in fact having seen this magical place, they could not resist building for me and for my brothers, a shelter where we could spend the summers together. From the many memories that bind me to this land so loved by my family, was born the desire to recreate the same atmosphere and hospitality in which I grew up.
The contact with nature, the background noise of the pastures and the details that characterize the house allow, once there, to find a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. Everything has been kept authentic, in harmony with the landscape and the local craftsmanship.
Each room is named after a member of my family. You can choose to sleep in the room of Daniele, Beniamino, Timothy, Michael, or that of my parents, Georgia and Emmanuel. Small details make them different from each other, to give a touch of uniqueness, while maintaining something in common: the silence, the light and the magical atmosphere. On this small piece of the world, kissed by light and surrounded by a crystal clear sea, arises the Upside Down Tree (l’Albero Capovolto).
Porto Cervo, Costa Smeralda 07021 – Porto Cervo
Via San Giovanni Bosco 8 09123 – Cagliari
This villa, steeped in history, stands proudly in one of the historical districts of Cagliari and is one of the city’s best kept secrets. With its rich past and exciting present, the Art Nouveau style of the exterior blends in seamlessly with the contemporary design of its 19 delightful rooms. Villa Fanny is a tribute to a woman of times gone by, the matriarch of a prominent Sardinian family, an inspiration for future generations.
Li Cuncheddi, 07026 Olbia SS, Italy
Hotel Cala Cuncheddi comes to a new life on the shores of one of the most beautiful seas in the world, rebuilt with the utmost consideration to its unique natural and living environment expressed in every detail and as a tribute to Italian design through the collaboration of Molteni&C, Gessi and Artemide.
A few steps from the water’s edge, interior and exterior spaces are arranged in a seamless flow to create living areas that make you feel at home, restaurants that invite you on culinary journeys across Italy with the most sophisticated flavors at “zero Km”, and a spa that revives the senses.
Via Buddeu, snc, 07026 San Pantaleo SS, Italy
