Hotel La Rocca Resort & Spa
Baia Sardinia, Sardinia
With its truncated roofs, arched walkways and wrought iron balconies, Hotel La Rocca is attractively designed and is reminiscent of a typical Sardinian village. This charming two-storey building, painted in delicate hues of terracotta and rose pink, is clustered around tiny flower-filled courtyards and walkways, which create an intimate and peaceful atmosphere. The 52 guestrooms and suites are light and airy; prettily furnished in fresh, Mediterranean style, all with balcony or terrace and some with distant sea view. In addition, the delightful Villa Del Parco (located in a private garden 30m from the main hotel) offers just three deluxe junior suites, making it ideal for small groups seeking their own space, but with easy access to the amenities of the hotel.
