Costa Smeralda, Sardinia
Hotel Cala di Volpe
A Luxury Collection Hotel
What it is
A Sardinian seaside nest for Europe’s big spenders.
What it isn't
For those not recklessly decadent.
What we think
Cala Di Volpe is the Costa Smeralda go-to for jetsetters and yachties, as made immediately clear by the long jetty that curves from the lobby into the coastal shallows. At any time during the season, a fleet of mega-yachts, speedboats, catamarans and sailboats seem to hover over the crystal-clear Tyrrhenian waters—all under the watchful eye of the alfresco diners at Atrium Bar as they enjoy their lobster and crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Designed to resemble a fishing village, the resort wears a rustic Sardinian decor and is dotted with examples of local craftsmanship—a wooden chair here, colored fabrics there, hand-painted tiles all around. Each room has a private balcony and patio, with panoramas of the sea and its floating parade of boats. Come evening, the low sun sets aglow the hotel’s pale-pink exterior, beckoning guests to the three waterside bars. Daytime activities include watersports, golf at Pevero Club, tanning at the private beach club and, of course, people-watching.
You're here because
It’s not the Costa Smeralda if you’re not sitting next to a princess, a Middle Eastern playboy or a Hollywood mogul.
Sinking into the saltwater pool as the hotel shimmers in the evening light, the waiter drops off a martini—shaken, not stirred. This is the same spot where Roger Moore and Barbara Bach had drinks in The Spy Who Loved Me.
