Relais Villa Del Golfo & Spa
RELAIS VILLA DEL GOLFO & SPA is located on a hillside overlooking the waters of the Gulf of Arzachena on the famed Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast), the roughly thirteen-mile strip of shoreline in northeastern Sardinia that has long been a favorite travel destination due to its white sand beaches, crystalline waters, scenic villages, and luxury hotels like the Relais Villa del Golfo & Spa. Surrounded by the La Maddalena national park and built to reflect the elegant simplicity of Sardinian architecture and design, this secluded property offers visitors the chance to engage with both natural and manmade environments. When not hiking the park, lounging seaside, or swimming in the azure waters, you can spend the day at the onsite Harmony Wellness Center, whose aestheticians and therapists excel at a variety of face and body treatments, including several massage modalities. Also make sure to book an excursion or romantic dinner on board the hotel’s BonAria yacht, a Jeanneau 53 that accommodates ten people or six overnight in three cabins with bathrooms.
Whether a deluxe room or a private suite, accommodations at the Relais itself are outfitted with traditional furnishings, light wood accents, bright colors, and ceramic flooring. Each room also features a private terrace and balcony, from which you can enjoy spectacular views while relaxing on comfortable outdoor furnishings. The culinary offerings are equally indulgent. Located on a large veranda overlooking the pool and the bay, the onsite MiraLuna is renowned for its fine Mediterranean cuisine, with an emphasis on Sardinian dishes made from fish caught fresh each day and from meat and poultry raised at local farms. Local organic ingredients also define the seasonal menu at nearby La Colti, with its traditional farmhouse atmosphere and indoor/outdoor seating. This family-run restaurant operates under a certified organic system, which means that its meats, fruits and vegetables, and even honey—all raised on the family’s farm—are completely free of chemical treatments. La Colti also offers special wine tastings and cooking classes in traditional Sardinian cuisine. Rooms: 59 rooms, including classic deluxe, superior deluxe, junior suites, suites
