Our favourite rooms
Each room has unique local art, but the aptly named Art Studio Suite was once the owner's atelier. Set in its own private rose garden with a courtyard and outdoor double bath, apart from other rooms, the Studio comes equipped with art supplies, an easel and canvas, should inspiration strike. Suite 86, inspired by the artist Francesco Ciusa, has a lovely terrace with views of the mountains.
Surrounded by grass and sunloungers, the unheated 25-metre pool is fed from a natural spring behind the hotel. Nearby, the seasonal gazebo bar offers snacks and games.
Don’t worry about sun hats and beach bags: the hotel has them available for guests.
Take advantage of spectacular sunset views from the Terrazza dei Desideri, where guests can write wishes on strips of paper to drop in two blown-glass bottles. On the other side of the hotel, the Terrazza dei Sogni hosts weekly stargazing.
Dogs are welcome for a fee of €10 a night. The hotel provides bowls, beds and food for Fido. See more pet-friendly hotels in Sardinia.
Welcome. Extra beds are available in some rooms (ask before booking), and there is a lifeguard at the pool each morning and afternoon. There’s a small playground and ample child-friendly food.
