Select Italy comprises a large range of accommodation, from simple residences to luxury hotels. The official ratings are based on certain facilities or services being available and they do not take into account the size of the bedrooms or public rooms, nor the preferred décor of the owner, which may be at odds with your taste. Hotels in the same category, even in the same resort, can vary considerably in character, ambience, service and facilities and may not offer the same staffing levels and facilities, or be as well maintained. it must be bourne in mind that cost is a good indication of standards, particulary when comparing hotels in the same star rating.

Stare a little longer, and you will also catch sight of the stunning Baja Sardinia.
The resort has focused all its energies on providing a premium hospitality service, where you feel pampered right from when you check in until you check out. There are 58 thoughtfully designed rooms, all of which have their own patio overlooking the blue sea or the green hills. No matter which room you reserve, you are guaranteed a great view.
One of the highlights of the Villa Del Golfo Lifestyle is a swimming pool unlike any you may encounter in a hotel or resort – a seawater pool. Located on the magnificent outdoor terrace, taking a dip in the pool will feel similar to swimming in the ocean. There is also an indoor, temperature-controlled pool where you can take a few leisurely laps.
The Armonia Spa is a must visit for guests looking to get rid of their accumulated stress. There are a variety of treatments and beauty packages that will not only rejuvenate your body, but your mind as well.
For a more adventurous touch, you can skip the indoor luxury and head out to the open sea in your own private yacht, which you can rent from the reception.
