The opening of Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia marks this luxury Hilton brand’s entry to Italy.

The milestone property stands out for its prime location overlooking Chia Bay on Sardinia’s picturesque coastline.

An idyllic setting

The 107-room Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia provides a secluded new retreat between the golden shores of Monte Cogoni and Dune di Campana beaches. As well as marking the hotel brand’s entry to Italy, this opening signifies the expansion of Conrad’s global portfolio.

Located on the southernmost tip of the island, the resort is surrounded by natural beauty. This natural environment is seen from every corner of the property.

Simon Vincent, executive vice president and president, EMEA, Hilton, said: “Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia is a stunning addition to our luxury portfolio in Europe – and Hilton’s third hotel on the island.”

“Sardinia’s natural beauty makes it a desirable destination for discerning luxury travellers, and we’re thrilled to partner with Italian Hospitality Collection once again to introduce the hotel to Hilton’s guests from around the world.”

“With more than 10 new hotels poised to join our Italian portfolio this year in locations including Rome, Padua and Venice, we continue to see considerable growth momentum in Italy, demonstrating the strength and resilience of Hilton’s brands in a dynamic market.”

A reflection of the surroundings

Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia is designed to bring the outside in and reflect the surrounding natural beauty. Studio Marco Piva took inspiration from the hotel’s elevated coastal location, using neutral tones and local, natural materials to blend elegance with Mediterranean simplicity. The lobby references Sardinian culture through details such as wall coverings.

Catering for both couples and families, the property comprises guest rooms that are divided into two areas according to each type of guest, along with amenities including dedicated swimming pools, private gardens and two restaurants offering a range of cuisines. La Terrazza serves Mediterranean and international cuisine while Sa Mesa serves local specialties with a contemporary twist.

The hotel experience is completed with the inclusion of the Conrad Spa wellness sanctuary featuring a rooftop solarium, with views over the entire resort and surrounding landscapes from a series of pools. 

Dino Michael, senior vice president and global category head, Hilton luxury brands said: “We’re thrilled to introduce Conrad Hotels & Resorts in Italy as the latest marquee opening for the brand following notable openings in Shanghai and Tulum early this year.”

“Located in a destination famous for its turquoise coastline and picturesque mountainous views, Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia will provide our highly discerning guests with authentic, impactful experiences through Conrad’s renowned purposeful and passionate service.” 

Marcello Cicalò, group director of operations, Italian Hospitality Collection, added: “We are proud to be taking our partnership with Hilton to the next level, having begun last year with the launch of Baia di Chia Resort Sardinia, Curio Collection by Hilton.”

“Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia will offer exclusive, superlative experiences in a unique location brimming with history and culture, set in the magnificent natural surroundings of southern Sardinia. Our partnership with Hilton is a real boost, increasing the international profile of our resort and Sardinia as a travel destination, and providing a real opportunity to relaunch tourism on the entire island.”
