Bottom Line

With a gallery highlighting international artists, each room dedicated to a contemporary Sardinian artist, and a unique Art Deco style throughout the hotel, the 49-room Hotel La Coluccia is an art lover's dream. The upper-middle-range boutique also provides a pleasant pool and beach area, both outfitted with loungers and umbrellas, plus on-site restaurant serving Sardinian dishes. A spa offering a variety of treatments and a steam room, plus a small gym are also available. Contemporary rooms are comfortable and have flat-screen TVs, but showers are small. The location is pretty remote and best for those looking for a quiet, idyllic setting away from the action of a city. The hotel is geared toward couples, so families should check out the Marmorata Village, which has a plethora of kid-friendly facilities.

Hotel La Coluccia

Scene

Romantic boutique featuring eclectic contemporary art 

Hotel La Coluccia offers a sense of urban sophistication in an idyllic setting, and a removed setting best for romancing couples. The whitewashed Art Deco-style building has a permanent art gallery inside, with an eclectic mix of pieces from a range of contemporary artists and a few comfy brown loveseats. This artsy vibe continues with the gallery wall of framed patterns behind the check-in desk, though the neutral-tone restaurant has a more subdued style. The indoor bar has a red accent wall and rose petals under a glass-topped counter for a sexy vibe, while a stocked bookshelf and cozy couches are more PG. Outside, the pool area has chic seating in a white color scheme, and overlooks the pretty beach.

Location

Surrounded by nature and facing the sea in northeast Sardinia

Located in the province of Olbia-Tempio in northeast Sardinia, the hotel is surrounded by lush countryside, beautiful beaches, and historic archeological sites. It's nestled away at the end of a side street in a very quiet location, with mostly private villas in the nearby vicinity. The nearest town is the seaside village of Porto Pozzo, a seven-minute drive away. There are nature trails immediately around the hotel but no restaurants or bars are within walking distance, making it necessary to have a car to explore the area. There are spots for mountain biking, hiking, scuba diving, and horseback riding within a half-hour drive. It's an 18-minute drive from Giants' grave, which are tombs built during the Bronze Age. The Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport is about an hour's drive away.

Rooms

Cozy rooms with modern furnishings and contemporary Sardinian artwork 

Each of the 49 modern, cozy rooms is dedicated to a different contemporary Sardinian artist: on each door there is the artist's name and a picture of them, and some room feature their work. Aside from the artwork, the rest of the neutral-tone room decor is pretty simple; they have white linens with beige patterned bed runners and throw pillows, white walls, wood floors, and dark-brown furniture. 

Some rooms have small furnished balconies with gorgeous views of the pool and sea. Standard amenities include free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, safes, and tiny fridges with a few bottles of water. All have work desks, and suites add loveseats and robes. Bathrooms have circle showers that protrude into the bedroom area, which provide an interesting touch but are small. Free quality Roberto Cavalli toiletries and hairdryers are also provided.
