The scenic Cala di Volpe bay is located in the north of Sardinia. It's part of the Costa Smeralda, AKA Emerald Coast, famous for its white-sand beaches, exclusive hotels, and ability to attract celebrities and other affluent visitors. The place is so special that The Spy Who Loved Me, a James Bond film, used this resort town for some of its scenes. Hotel Cala di Volpe is the town's landmark, the famous French architect Jacques Couëlle's work. His architectural movement focused on the importance of blending in with nature and sculptural forms of carved concrete surfaces. Thanks to his brilliant work, Hotel Cala di Volpe has been open to guests since 1962.
The cave-like interiors feature curvy walls in white-washed and terracotta color palettes. The friendly Mediterranean style creates a laid-back atmosphere, complementing the secluded town's unique feel. The rooms and suites were cautiously upgraded by Bruno Moinard with the utmost respect to Jacques Couëlle's original works. The rooms and suites have thoughtful natural decorations like Sardinian baskets and wooden canopies. Some are equipped with freestanding bathtubs overlooking the bay. Of course, the most luxurious is the Penthouse Suite, with its own rooftop terrace with a pool. What's more, it also has a steam room, fitness room, hot tub, and uniquely made furniture.
Hotel Cala di Volpe offers a culinary journey through its various restaurants and bars, ranging from Mediterranean flavors at the Barbecue Restaurant to Japanese cuisine at Matsuhisa at Cala di Volpe. The spa is the signature work of the Japanese brand Shiseido offering treatments inspired by the fusion of Eastern traditions and philosophies and Western science and technology. The unique Spa Journey features Kuroho, a rare fragrance of the Japanese aristocracy from the 9th century. Step outside, and you'll find the hotel's Olympic size pool, one of the largest in Europe, filled with seawater. If you are looking for relaxation in a serene place, a 5-minute boat ride will get you to a private beach with perfect white sands and turquoise waters.
