Marinedda Hotel Thalasso & Spa

Marinedda Hotel Thalasso & Spa,  Sardinia  Italy

★   ★   ★    ★

Set on a slight incline a short distance from the town, this property has been carefully designed to ensure maximum utilisation of its extensive grounds and, more importantly, the stunning views best enjoyed from the foyer lounge in the evenings. Although the swimming pool at the top of the resort is overlooked by the restaurant, the second larger pool closer to the sea provides a more peaceful haven. Additionally, the children’s club including 24-hour care and feed station plus the huge full-facility wellness-centre makes it an attractive proposition for all ages.

Exterior

Short path leads up to a glass-fronted single-storey reception area where a stunning view of the coast can be seen. The majority of the rooms are situated in staggered and tiered 2 and 3 storey blocks through the hillside grounds, reached by paved paths through heavily scrubbed gardens. All rooms have either a terrace or balcony; most are draped with clinging bougainvillea and other plants.

Grounds

A series of flagpoles mark the 200m paved drive off the main road which, itself, branches off before the tennis court and soccer pitch onto a circular set down area in front of the apparent 2-storey building. Surrounded by shrubs and trees, with a shaded car park to the side, some of the blocks of rooms in the grounds are visible from the front. The pool is furnished with sunloungers and parasols and has a giant waterfall feature protruding from the roof and is overlooked by 3 floors including balconied rooms. Towards the sea front, there is an a la carte restaurant with indoor dining and an al fresco bar overlooking the second swimming pool. Adjacent to that is the fully equipped spa and health centre that is spectacular in design and facilities including a separate series of pools.
