Capo Boi – Sardinia
Set on its own private beach with a rugged Sardinian backdrop, the Moorish designed Resort Capo Boi is everything a Sardinian hotel should be. The first five-star hotel to open in the South of Sardinia, Resort Capo Boi remains as stylish and understated as in those early days.
In the central pavilion generously sized rooms and suites overlook the sea, the hills or beautiful gardens. Downstairs you’ll discover the restaurant and bar. For families with young children there is a section located close to the children’s activity centre and best of all the villa rooms and villas set in Mediterranean gardens under shady pines with views out over the water and to the rugged hillside, a perfect backdrop in front of which to sip a predinner glass of wine or a cocktail.
Enjoy a romantic dinner at the waters edge at Kenzo the Japanese inspired a la carte restaurant. However, most of the time dining is outside on the main terrace unless you prefer the air conditioned cool after a day in the sun. Dining is buffet style supplemented with live cooking stations with prepared to order choices of fish, meats and pastas. This is one of those restaurants where overindulgence is the norm which is not a problem if the same energy is invested in the host of daytime activities be it on the water with a whole range of watersports or on land perhaps by bicycle. The Spa offers a range of relaxing therapies to put you back in touch with yourself. With it’s own private beach, Resort Capo Boi is a magnet for families and there’s a full programme to keep the youngsters busy and they can dip in and dip out to their hearts’ content. But in Sardinia, lunch is family time so don’t forget to collect the kids for that perfect Pizza lunch by the pool.
Resort Capo Boi is definitely for families and couples alike. With everything spread through the gardens it never feels crowded. Sardinia is where Italians go for their holidays and in peak July and August the island is busy, so if you’re flexible, go a little out of season and enjoy all this stunning island has to offer from deserted beaches to tunnels under the city, and of course the delicious fresh tastes from the sea and the land.
