Known for its magnificent hiking trails, incredible crystalline waters, and endearing towns and eccentric cultural events, Sardinia is as close to paradise as you can get in the Mediterranean. Its varied landscape offers the best of both worlds with white sandy beaches on the coast, and a lush mountainous interior adorned with fascinating rock formations dating back to as early as 1500 B.C.
For years, this sophisticated yet rugged Italian island has attracted visitors who are looking for something that is a bit different and, as a result, hotels such as the Abi d’Oru Hotel & Spa were created to cater for these discerning travellers. Since 1963, the 5-star Hotel & Spa has been embodying comfort, relaxation and luxury living on the shores of Porto Rotondo’s Marinella beach.
Putting elegant luxury and superlative hospitality at the forefront, guests are invited to indulge in Sardinia at its best with its host of 5-star suites, services and experiences. Having recently refurbished 45 rooms and the main swimming pool, Abi d’Oru Hotel & Spa now offers even more refined options when choosing your accommodation for Sardinia. With almost all of the rooms, which include 24 Deluxe Rooms, 15 Junior Suites, 10 Family Deluxe Rooms, 4 Deluxe Suites, 4 Premium suites and the 2 recently renovated Signature Suites, enjoying views of the sea or the hotel gardens, guests can immerse themselves in the beauty of the island at all times.
The decor has been tastefully chosen to reflect the surrounding natural landscape; boasting a cool colour palette and timeless Sardinian and Mediterranean furnishings. Fixtures and finishes such as marble from Orosei and Samugheo rugs add that more opulent touch.
When guests are able to tear themselves away from their superb lodgings, they will find that the venue is bursting with activities to suit all tastes and ages. From the kids club to the individually tailored excursions including; a tour of the gulf by canoe, a jet ski expedition to nearby Porto Rotondo, diving in the marine park off the island of Tavolara, or a horse riding tour of the nearby forests, Abi d’Oru Hotel & Spa is on-hand to create unforgettable experiences while in Sardinia.
Likewise, the Abi Spa and its award-winning therapy rooms offer an otherworldly experience of calm and relaxation. Each of the four therapy rooms are themed around the scent of a typical Sardinian essence creating the perfect backdrop to the phenomenal treatments available.
Known for its quirky individuality, Sardinia also puts its own spin on classic Italian dishes and culinary favourites. At Abi d’Oru Hotel & Spa, guests can experience the island’s distinct take on breads, pastas, wines, cheeses and dolci in the hotel’s gourmet restaurants; Mediterraneo, Tzia Maria, and Marinella on the beach.
The scenic Lobby Bar, Poo Bar and Marinella Lounge Bar make for a fabulous accompaniment to an evening spent on a gastronomic adventure, as well as being perfectly positioned for a romantic sundowner.
