Delphina hotels & resorts is one of Sardinia’s leading hotel groups with twelve 4* and 5* hotels, 2 exclusive residences, 6 SPAs and 23 villas, all immersed in the unspoilt coastline between the Costa Smeralda, the La Maddalena Archipelago and the Golfo dell’Asinara. The area is rich in white sandy beaches, picture perfect coves and crystal clear azzure waters.
Resort news for 2020:
4* Resort Le Dune & SPA, a family-friendly resort set in a private park of 280,000 m2 surrounded by sand dunes, junipers and vines which face the waters of Golfo dell’Asinara at the Marina di Badesi, will unveil an amazing extended organic garden. The impressive vegetable garden featuring aromatic herbs and fruit trees, all built on the grounds of an old vineyard, has been extended to increase the resorts’ ‘zero kilometre’ produce and will allow guests to explore and learn about the native plants and species. Children and adults can freely wonder and discover the henhouse and aviaries to see the peacocks, ducks and chicks and even collect the eggs laid by free-range hens.
This year guests at Le Dune Resort & SPA will also be able to enjoy free Hatha Yoga lessons, a traditional style of yoga with gentle poses, breathing exercises and meditation, in a brand new outdoor, sea-facing space built between the sand dunes for the ultimate ‘wellness in nature’ experience.
5* Resort Valle dell’Erica Thalasso & SPA, set in a private park and surrounded by 1,400m of unspoilt coastline, is a favourite destination for couples and families alike. This season, three of the Archipelago Suites will feature private swimming pools for the ultimate exclusive relaxtion. Guests will also be able to enjoy the new ‘Farmer’s Corner’ at the extensive breakfast buffet, which will feature a delicious selection of traditional products including Sardinian bread, goat and sheep cheeses, marinated specialties and tasty cold cuts all from local farms or nearby fields.
Building on their successful Green initiative last year, which saw 5* Valle dell’Erica Thalasso & SPA crowned ‘Europe’s Leading Green Resort’ at the World Travel Awards 2019, family-run Delphina promises to preserve, protect and connect guests with their local surroundings. Environmentally conscious guests will find that single-use plastic bottles, straws, cups and packaging have all been replaced with glass bottles, recyclable and biodegradable materials, as well as electric-only vechicles on-site to help transport them.
