Hotel Cala di Volpe , COSTA SMERALDA, SARDINIA, Italy
When the Aga Khan set his sights on developing the still-unspoilt coastline of Costa Smeralda, he created Cala di Volpe: a palatial Sardinian-style village resort unlike any other, and a destination in its own right.
Imagine staying in not just a chic, designer hotel, but a chic, designer fishing village, and a destination in its own right: that’s how it feels to be part of Cala di Volpe. There’s a bright breeziness here, not only in the colours used throughout, but in the resort’s ample recreational facilities and the joie de vivre that comes with Mediterranean living.
It's nestled in one of the most picturesque and glamorous spots, overlooking a yacht-filled Sardinian bay, and blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape.
The individually-appointed rooms and suites have balconies overlooking the scenic panorama, uniquely decorated with a selection of traditional furnishings and art.
At the restaurant, you'll find legendary classic Mediterranean and Sardinian cuisine; and around the resort you can distract yourself with tennis, a dip in the Olympic-sized saltwater pool or take the five-minute boat ride to the hotel's enchanting private beach.
