Grand Hotel Poltu Quatu


Costa Smeralda & the North East  |  Poltu Quatu

146 rooms

One of the finest hotels on the Costa Smeralda and a member of the prestigious brand Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Grand Hotel Poltu Quatu nestles splendidly within this pretty little port made up of all-white buildings which dazzle in contrast to the vibrant bougainvilleas, crystal clear waters and pristine yachts which line the windy path of its natural fjord. Poltu Quatu was built to resemble an ancient fishing village and despite being small and a relatively new development, it blends perfectly within its natural environment, creating a picture postcard dream.

Backed by pink granite mountains this idyllic oasis is one of the most desirable locations on the Costa Smeralda while the Grand Hotel offers everything expected of a luxury resort. In elegant Spanish-Sardinian style its 146 rooms offer maximum comfort and privacy with balcony views towards the mountains, pool area or harbour and islands beyond the fjord. The hotel has three excellent restaurants, a café and piano bar which offer an intimate atmosphere to relax and unwind with an extensive selection of local, national and international specialties and fine wines to choose from.

The marina/harbour is an excellent starting point for boat trips and there are many to choose from including excursions to the beautiful archipelago of La Maddalena. It’s also a good centre for diving with many schools using the port as their base and just about any boating activity can be arranged. There are a small number of shops and bars to choose from while the bustling glitz of Porto Cervo is within a 5km drive and the famed beaches of Liscia di Vacca are even closer. This is a perfect choice for couples seeking a romantic holiday in an exclusive location within the Costa Smeralda.

About the Local Area


Poltu Quatu was built to resemble an ancient fishing village and despite being small and a relatively new development, it blends perfectly within its natural environment, creating a picture postcard dream. Situated between the lively resorts of Baia Sardinia and Porto Cervo, there is a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants within a short drive of the hotel. Phi Beach at Baia Sardinia is perhaps one of the trendiest places in Sardinia to watch the sun go down with a pre-dinner drink, whilst Porto Cervo is home to some of the best restaurants on the Island.


Tanca Manna
Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.

Cala Battistoni
Cala Battistoni beach just in front of the little village of Baia Sardinia is a white sandy beach with a spectacular and natural surrounding.

Cala Capra
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.

The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.

Spiaggia del Principe
Rather off the beaten track is the Spiaggia del Principe which cannot be reached by car. The last stretch has to be done on foot takes under 10 minutes and is well worth the effort.

Liscia di Vacca
A small secluded sandy beach near Marina.

Liscia Ruia
An extensive sweep of white sand set down a long unsurfaced road.

Piccolo Pevero
Piccolo Pevero is a small sandy beach with parasol and boat hire. It also has a restaurant (“Il Pulcino”) and a bar.

The Pitrizza beach at Liscia di Vacca just north of Porto Cervo is also popular.
