Hilton opens its first hotel in Italy, the Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia. The hotel is located on Sardinia’s coast, with 107 rooms overlooking Chia Bay, Monte Cogoni Beach, and Dune di Campana Beach. The hotel is part of the larger Chia Laguna Resort and offers exclusive guest amenities and privileged access to the resort’s facilities.
Perched on the southern-most tip of the Mediterranean island, the resort is surrounded by awe-inspiring natural beauty. Sand dunes, coastal flora and fauna and pink flamingos give way to both Monte Cogoni and Dune di Campana, renowned as Italy’s most beautiful beaches and found on either side of the resort. These spectacular vistas decorated with hues of natural green and blue are visible from every corner of the property – with rooms, suites, restaurants and pools boasting panoramic views across the iconic bay and lagoon. Chia is a protected habitat to wildlife and is home to countless species as well as wild herbs such as mint, rosemary and thyme which often fill the coastal air with their favourable scent.

The interior of the property is designed to reflect the natural beauty of the surrounding area, thanks to a unique concept by Studio Marco Piva of Milan. The design features natural materials and neutral tones throughout, resulting in a harmonious blend of elegance and Mediterranean simplicity. The approach combines contemporary design with local materials such as Sardinian “Biancone di Orosei” marble, a calcareous rock derived from ancient coral and fossils that has a subtle sandy hue. These locally sourced rocks were used to create terraces, seamlessly blending the resort into its surroundings. The hotel lobby features elements of Sardinian culture, inviting guests to fully experience the location’s cultural background with details such as wall coverings of traditional Sardinian fabrics and furniture decorated with ropes, representing the destination’s nautical roots.
Conrad Chia Laguna Sardinia is a great place for both families and couples. The guestrooms are divided into two areas, each with its own swimming pool, private garden, and pathways. There are also two restaurants to choose from, each with its own unique menu. La Terrazza serves a menu of Mediterranean and international cuisine in an interactive setting, where guests can observe the cooking process while enjoying panoramic views from the al fresco terrace. Sa Mesa – set in an olive grove – features local specialities with a contemporary twist, offering foodies an authentic experience under the twinkling Mediterranean night sky.
The Conrad Spa on-site serves as a calm haven with an extensive treatment menu. You can also enjoy breath-taking views of the entire resort and surrounding landscapes from the rooftop solarium. There are a series of pools there that you can enjoy.
