Hotel Cala di Volpe surrounded by the unsurpassed waters of Costa Smeralda is an eclectic coastal oasis of old-world chic.


Hotel Cala di Volpe is where the James Bond film ‘A Spy Who Loved Me’ was filmed in 1977. A haven of thoughtful comforts and exquisite local design, each of the 121 guest rooms celebrate the region’s natural landscape and distinctive Sardinian artistry. Simple white-washed walls are decorated with whimsical trompe l’oeil paintings, unique to each room. Accents of soft pastel colours echo the landscape’s spring and summer palette. Handcrafted furniture is painted to match each room’s singular theme, complemented further by vibrant ceramic tile work on the floors and in the bathrooms.

The Harrods Suites are superbly modern and refined yet rooted in local traditions and materials – by far the most magnificent in Costa Smeralda.


With exceptional restaurants and bars situated in beautiful spots across the hotel, gourmands can expect a bounty of cosmopolitan dining options, from exceptional Japanese Nobu-style cuisine of Matsuhisa to Beefbar’s intriguing creations. While sumptuous Sardinian and Mediterranean buffets await at Cala di Volpe Barbeque, award-winning Le Grand invites guests to indulge in fine dining experiences, engulfed in the restaurant’s timeless allure. The culinary journey extends with a delightful array of choices: from an aperitif with a ravishing view on the extensive terrace of The Atrium to international classics and the traditional flavours of Sardinian cuisine at the panoramic Ai Due Mari, situated at the nearby Pevero Golf Club, just to name a few for a true feast for the senses.


Nourish your body and soul at the award-winning Shiseido Spa. Shiseido’s approach takes a holistic perspective, offering treatments and products blending scents and textures, as well as traditions and philosophies from Eastern and Western science and technology. A range of signature treatments including unique Spa Journeys, featuring the use of Kuroho, an exquisite fragrance treasured by Japanese aristocracy in the 9th century, provides soothing effects thanks to its traditional bouquet reflecting the idea of Japanese richness.


From a helicopter tour to a boat excursion, dive into Sardinian heritage and discover La Maddalena Archipelago Natural Park or uncover the hidden coves of marine grottoes. Alternatively, undertake a shopping session at the designer boutiques in the artists village of San Pantaleo, or go for guided tours in the hinterland to discover local gastronomic cuisine, or a visit to the famous Nuragic complexes and prominent archaeological sites.
