Abi d'Oru Hotel & SPA

Sardinia, Italy

Built in 1963 by Count Vittorio Cini, who entrusted the project to Simon Mossa, the Abi d'Oru Hotel & SPA was the first hotel in Porto Rotondo and thus belongs to the history of Sardinian luxury tourism. The Sardinian intellectual and architect then joined the Aga Khan committee in charge of the construction of the Costa Smeralda, which became one of the greatest Italian tourism successes of all time. 

A view from the sky shows that the Abi d'Oru hotel, "golden bee" in Sardinian language, has an original and unique structure that looks like a beehive, housing 125 rooms, all facing the sea. The place is surrounded by a large garden with swimming pool and is just a few steps from the beach.

In a unique environment, overlooking a fine white sand beach, the Abi d'Oru hotel is located on the Golfo di Marinella, 4 km from Porto Rotondo, near the Costa Smeralda and only 15 minutes from Olbia international airport.
