The perfect choice for a relaxing beach holiday in the north east of Sardinia, Hotel Abi d'Oru will appeal to both couples and families alike. Set in expansive grounds filled with manicured lawns and dominating palm trees, the hotel is ideally positioned to make the most of its location with views out over the Gulf of Marinella and the ocean beyond.
The hotel itself is typically Sardinian in style with many terraces, wide arches and meandering terracotta roofs. Each room is decorated with Italian flair, enjoying either a balcony or a terrace and most offering sea views. While the standard hill side and sea view rooms are suitably spacious and comfortable, we'd recommend upgrading to a Junior suite for a truly luxurious stay. Complete with a serene sitting area and balcony overlooking the crystalline waters of the Gulf of Marinella, some ground floor junior suites even have a patio with direct access to the Mediterranean garden, leading to the beach.
Everything you need, within arm's reach
There are three restaurants on-site, with two by the beach, serving the best in Sardinian cuisine and seafood as well as classic pizzas and grilled meats. It is however the gorgeous Marinella beach that is the real draw here – a long stretch of white sand gently lapped by crystal clear water, a section of which is exclusively reserved for the hotel’s guests with complimentary sunloungers and parasols. There is also a range of water sports available nearby (payable locally). The charming village of Porto Rotondo is only 4km away with its chic boutiques, pretty squares and prestigious marina.
