To start planning your vacation to Hotel CalaCuncheddi
Just meters from Li Cuncheddi beach in northern Sardinia, CalaCuncheddi is surrounded by five hectares of lush vegetation and both rocky and sandy coastline, very close to a protected marine area. Originally built in the 80s, CalaCuncheddi has just been beautifully renovated and refurbished to an exceptionally high design spec. White washed outside, in typical Sardinian style, it is airy and cool on the inside, with creamy marble floors, white furnishings and enormous windows that open out onto the numerous terraces that overlook the pool and the crystal sea beyond. All the rooms and suites are different in size, shape and style, creating an uniqueness unlike many hotels, and most have a terrace or balcony overlooking the pool, Li Cuncheddi beach and the Gulf of Olbia beyond.
CalaCuncheddi has two restaurants serving delicious local cuisine and traditional Italian dishes using fresh seasonal local produce. Breakfast and brunch is served at Asarena with its panoramic view of the pool and sea, whilst dinner is taken at Asumari near the beach. The cellar is well-stocked with some fantastic local wines, as well as a wide selection from the mainland.
Being so close to the beach, it’s easy to spend most days there or by the pool. Large sun umbrellas and loungers, make this decision quite easy.
