Hotel Cala di Volpe, Sardinia

Presidential Suite

The pad: Concealed at the top of this hideaway favoured by celebrities, the 250 square metre penthouse suite, complete with a sprawling rooftop terrace and large swimming pool, offers envy-inducing views of Sardinia’s summer superyacht fleet bobbing in the bay below. The lavish layout includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms with spa pools, two living rooms and a fitness area. Despite its glitzy credentials the suite retains Sardinian charm throughout – think hand painted furnishings, vibrant tiled floors and swathes of terracotta.

Star worn path: Built in the style of a humble fishing village, the hotel’s rosy-hued exterior has accommodated luminaries since the 1960s, when the Aga Khan first stumbled across this picturesque north-east corner of Sardinia and began to develop it. Its royalty check-in list includes Princess Caroline of Monaco, Princess Diana and Queen Bey (Beyoncé).

Moor(e) up: Cala di Volpe’s Bar Pontile, located directly off the wooden pier leading to the bay, starred as a location in the 1977 Bond filmThe Spy Who Loved Me. Indulge in a signature bellini or channel your inner Roger Moore and sip a martini – shaken, not stirred. Alternatively, if you prefer more personal liaisons, the Presidential Suite also comes with its own wine cellar.

Best by boat: During summer months, join the flotilla of tenders dropping off designer clad celebrities from the yachts anchored in the bay. A boat is also the only way to experience Cala di Volpe’s private beach – the pristine sands are less than five minutes from the hotel.

€33,000 per night
