New season better than ever at Hotel La Villa del Re, Sardinia

Fresh on the back of the 2014 season that saw the opening of Hotel La Villa del Re, this magnificent hotel on Sardinia’s the South East Coast is relaunching with improvements, extensions and additional services for guests. The 5-star resort, with its reflection glistening on Costa Rei sea, will offer more rooms and more swimming pool and beach services.

Relaxation and sophisticated luxury are the keywords of the 5-star Hotel La Villa del Re located in Castiadas, on the stretch of beautiful southern Sardinian coastline east of Cagliari. Peace and tranquillity are guaranteed by the hotel’s location in a prime position directly on the beach, set amid a large garden and surrounded by a park where pines and palm trees alternate with maquis shrubland.

Every space in the hotel is characterized by a sophisticated atmosphere able to combine elegance and intimacy in an environment designed with the greatest respect for the landscape identity of Sardinia.

La Villa del Re opened in 2014 following restructuring that gave it a new identity. Due to the success achieved and positive response from an international clientele as demonstrated by the enthusiastic reviews and high scores on TripAdvisor, La Villa del Re decided to embark on extensions and improvements to go that extra mile to meet the needs of its guests.

New rooms
La Villa del Re is reopening with 52 rooms -17 more than last year- consisting of 8 Junior Suites, 39 Superior Suites and 5 Classic Suites with sea or garden views and either a patio on the ground floor or a balcony on the first floor. Complete with bath or shower cabin featuring colour therapy, and equipped with the utmost in comfort and subtle, charming decor.

Beach and swimming pool
One of the hotel’s jewels is the magnificent beach along the front with the finest, white sand located just 80m from the hotel and reserved for guests. The seafront area is equipped with elegant beach umbrellas and sun beds made from hi-tech fabrics. The wide beach leads to the splendid turquoise sea at a point where the water is warmer than other areas of Sardinia, a feature that is cherished by the hotel’s guests. The parts of the beach adjacent to the area serviced by the hotel are often almost deserted, ensuring the ultimate in quiet, peaceful strolls.

Between the beach and the hotel is the swimming pool lined in white stone, typical of the area. The breathtaking infinity pool extends out to skim the beach, seeming to merge continuously with the blue of the sea. A new highlight for 2015 is a well-stocked bar on the terrace at the edge of the pool. With sea views and furnished with comfortable armchairs and tables under the palm grove, serving drinks and cold snacks both at the pool and on the beach, the bar is a welcome addition to the dining and refreshment options offered by the elegant Le Palme restaurant, located just a few steps away.

The hotel features its own restaurant situated on the ground floor with a terrace for outdoor dining. Once again, here you can enjoy panoramic views of the garden, pool area and sea. The dishes offer a new take on the best of traditional Mediterranean cuisine, as well as showcasing Sardinian specialities prepared with locally sourced ingredients ranging from the intense flavours of inland produce to delicacies direct from the sea in front of the hotel. Deserts and fresh pasta are made in-house.
