The brand’s first Italian property, Conrad Hotels & Resorts has arrived on the Sardinian Coast with a wellness-centred 107-room resort surrounded by natural beauty
Hilton has announced the opening of the highly-anticipated Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia, marking the luxury brand’s very first Italian property. Overlooking Chia Bay with a prime location on Sardinia’s pristine coastline, the new hotel is nestled between the golden sands of both Monte Cogoni Beach and Dune di Campana Beach.
Designed to offer a secluded retreat, the 107-room resort features exclusive guest amenities and privileged access to all that the larger Chia Laguna Resort has to offer.
The resort is surrounded by incredible natural beauty, with the likes of sand dunes, coastal flora and fauna and pink flamingos to enjoy within Chia’s protected habitat. Home to countless species, guests can also admire wild herbs such as mint, rosemary and thyme which often fill the coastal air with their favourable scent. Close by, Monte Cogoni and Dune di Campana (two of Italy’s most beautiful beaches) are found on either side of the resort.
The relaxation extends further than just the idyllic landscape – the on-site Conrad Spa serves as calm haven with an extensive treatment menu and rooftop solarium – where breath-taking views overlooking the entire resort and surrounding landscapes can be enjoyed from a series of pools.
Interiors come courtesy of design studio Studio Marco Piva, who intertwine the external natural beauty with a mastery of hospitality design. Drawing inspiration from the hotel’s elevated coastal location, decor features natural materials and neutral tones throughout resulting in a harmonious blend of elegance and Mediterranean simplicity.
The approach combines contemporary design with local materials such as Sardinian “Biancone di Orosei” marble, a calcareous rock derived from ancient coral and fossils that has a subtle sandy hue. These locally sourced rocks were used to create terraces, seamlessly blending the resort into its surroundings.
Even the hotel lobby features elements of the Sardinian culture – inviting guests to fully experience the location’s cultural background with wall coverings of traditional Sardinian fabrics and rope-clad furniture which pay homage to the destination’s nautical roots.
The property also aims to cater to both families and couples, with guestrooms divided into two separate areas for each. Visitors can enjoy segmented swimming pools, private gardens and pathways – alongside two restaurants open to all.
La Terrazza serves a menu of Mediterranean and international cuisine in an interactive setting where guests can observe the cooking process alongside panoramic views from the al fresco terrace. Sa Mesa – set in an olive grove – features local specialities with a contemporary twist, offering foodies an authentic experience under the twinkling Mediterranean night sky.
A New Chapter
Simon Vincent, executive vice president and president, EMEA, Hilton, told The Wordrobe: “Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia is a stunning addition to our luxury portfolio in Europe – and Hilton’s third hotel on the island. Sardinia’s natural beauty makes it a desirable destination for discerning luxury travellers, and we’re thrilled to partner with Italian Hospitality Collection once again to introduce the hotel to Hilton’s guests from around the world.
With more than 10 new hotels poised to join our Italian portfolio this year in locations including Rome, Padua and Venice, we continue to see considerable growth momentum in Italy, demonstrating the strength and resilience of Hilton’s brands in a dynamic market.”
