Rosewood to manage new ultra-luxury resort in Sardinia

by | 26 Jul 2020 | Projects

Due to open in 2022, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’s latest site is located in well-heeled Costa Smeralda, a destination known for its soft white beaches and glistening turquoise waters.

Rosewood is continuing its European expansion drive with the addition of another spectacular project – this time on the beautiful island of Sardinia. We find out more.

An oasis in the Mediterranean

Quianto Capital, the private equity real estate investment company, has appointed Rosewood to manage a landmark property in Sardinia. The high-profile deal paves the way for the opening of Rosewood Porto Cervo in 2022.

The three-story resort will be located just 1.5 kilometres from Porto Cervo town and feature 39 rooms and 26 suites, all overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It will be Rosewood’s third opening in Italy, joining established sister properties in Tuscany and Venice.

“Rosewood Porto Cervo will showcase our visionary, innovative ambition for creating one-of-a-kind resorts through Rosewood’s uniquely sophisticated lens. We look forward to showcasing our brand’s A Sense of Place philosophy as we create a luxurious haven in Sardinia,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group.

Sophisticated concepts in Sardinia

Designed to become Sardinia’s new social hub, Rosewood Porto Cervo will boast a selection of refined hospitality concepts, created to reflect the surrounding nature and local culture.

For example, the resort will feature four dining venues, each boasting its own unique vibe with stunning backdrops. Guests will also be able to relax at the generous spa where a wide range of wellness and rejuvenating treatments are promised, and a gym will be available for guests wanting to stay fit on the road.

Those seeking a connection with nature, meanwhile, will be able to stroll through the property’s lush gardens or along the breath-taking seashore. Plus, a private boat transfer to Porto Cervo will be available from the hotel’s pier, allowing guests to easily access the vibrant city and its spectacular natural surroundings.

“We are honoured to join hands with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts,” said Petra Hofer, chief executive officer of Quianto Capital. “We are proud to showcase the rich offerings of Sardinia, as well as Rosewood’s refined ultra-luxury hospitality, to create a new legacy and world-class retreat in the Mediterranean.”

“As the strategic advisor to Quianto Capital during the operator selection process, we held firm on finding a luxury hospitality partner that would add the most value to reflect the destination’s unique culture, history and geography in the design and operation of the hotel,” said Enrico Meneghetti, chief executive officer of Enma Capital & Partners. “Through its A Sense of Place philosophy, Rosewood Porto Cervo will definitely achieve this goal.”
