    June 13 2014 sees the opening of La Villa del Re, an exclusive, secluded 5-star hotel reflected in the sea of Costa Rei, in southern Sardinia. Ideal for those seeking a relaxing, comfortable stay in the peace and quiet of nature, the exquisite style of La Villa del Re offers the finest of opportunities to enjoy the unspoilt beauty and unrivalled landscapes of the island. The hotel, located within a protected area, is one of the few new hotels in Europe to open right opposite the sea, which guests can admire from the private beach or the infinity pool.A natural setting of unparalleled beauty and a subtly sophisticated approach to luxury are the hallmarks of the 5-star hotel La Villa del Re, set to open on June 13 in Castiadas (Costa Rei), on the southern stretch of the Sardinian coastline, east of Cagliari. Right on the seafront, the hotel nestles within a spacious garden, and is surrounded by parkland in which pine and palm trees alternate with Mediterranean shrubland. The splendid location and the size of the hotel make it the ideal choice for an exclusive, entirely relaxing stay. The philosophy of La Villa del Re gives each area of the hotel a warmly sophisticated, subtly elegant atmosphere that blends smoothly with the characteristic landscape and architecture of Sardinia. The private beach on the doorstep, the inviting pool and the gourmet restaurant all help to make a stay here truly unforgettable.

    The beautifully inviting décor of the hotel has been created in a style designed to be delightfully attractive without being excessively lavish.

    Initially only 35 of the superbly appointed 65 Superior, Deluxe and Junior Suite rooms will be open, decorated in a subtly captivating style. All rooms have a sea view and look onto the splendid garden. Those on the ground floor have a private garden and patio, while those on the first floor are provided with a balcony. Each one is equipped with a bathtub or shower cabinet for colour therapy.

    The hotel has its own restaurant on the ground floor, with an outdoor area for alfresco dining that offers superb views of the sea and the garden with pool. The menus created by the first-rate chef draw their inspiration from the finest Mediterranean culinary tradition, with a particular focus on Sardinian dishes that comprises both the intense aromas of the inland areas and the finest the sea opposite the kitchen has to offer.

    The hotel is just 80 metres from the large beach with fine white sand reserved for hotel guests that offers the chance to admire the sea of Sardinia in all its beauty. The area opposite the sea is equipped with chairs, sun loungers and deckchairs in technical fabrics, while elegant beach umbrellas, large white curtains and attractive gazebos offer shelter from the sun.

    Between the hotel and the beach is the marvellous “infinity” pool, tiled with typical local white stone, stretching right towards the beach and blending smoothly into the blue of the sea. The exceptionally well stocked poolside bar, furnished with comfortable club chairs and tables in the shade of the palm trees, is the ideal place for guests to enjoy a tasty snack.
