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.
As well as the hotel's official star rating, we have also given our own special rating, based on our personal opinion. This rating should be taken into consideration, especially when comparing hotels of the same official star rating. By all means browse our website to get an idea of what we offer.

About the hotel
Why choose between mountains and beaches when you can have both within easy reach in one location? With Hotel Arathena, you will be treated to spectacular mountain views of the hills and exceptional services including a free shuttle bus giving guests easy access to the beach. When you need a break from the water and sun, the center of the village is only a few minutes away and is waiting to be explored.
The best part about Hotel Arathena is that it stays close to its local roots. Sitting on a sloping, verdant hill, the boutique property celebrates the unique character of its setting – the picturesque village of San Pantaleo in Sardinia.
The exterior of the hotel mirrors the unique houses of the village: stone walls coloured in pastel peach, terraced floors, slanting roofs covered in brown tiles. The architecture mirrors the natural slope of San Pantaleo. Step into the reception, and you will feel as if you have entered a spacious, cool cavern. The same effect is recreated in all of the 35 guestrooms.
Each room feels like your own private getaway. The décor takes inspiration from the surrounding landscape with wooden motifs that highlight the furniture and the upholstery. Peek out of the window and the beautiful cascading hills of the region greet you.
The hotel is located close to the village. A short ride will take you to local cafes, open air markets, and flea markets where you can spot local sculptors selling traditional wares. Since the hills are rich with inspiration, it has drawn many an artist to its fold. The scenery may even motivate you to undertake a creative pursuit or two.
