Maserati and Marriott Costa Smeralda Hotels have teamed up to host an exclusive Summer driving experience. At the Marriott Costa Smeralda’s hotels in Sardinia, Italy, participants have the opportunity to drive a range of exquisite Maseratis namely, the Ghibli executive sports sedan, the Quattroporte flagship and the Levante, the first SUV in the Brand’s more than a century of history. The Marriott Costa Smeralda hotels consist of the Cala di Volpe, Hotel Romazzino, Hotel Pitrizza and Cervo Hotel.

Simple, discreet luxury, elegance and quality: these are the shared characteristics underlying a successful partnership, in which the prestigious automotive Brand is a guest in one of Sardinia’s most picturesque areas, a timeless paradise that has conserved itsappeal. Overlooking the bay of the same name, one of the most beautiful hideaways on the Costa Smeralda, the Cala di Volpe was built in the style of a traditional fishing village, with arcades, stone floors, archways and steps: designed in 1962 by architect Jacques Couëlle and extended in 1971, the hotel is a perfect blend of landscape and architecture.

Hotel Romazzino, built in 1965 by architect Michele Busiri Vici, is the Costa Smeralda’s most iconic seaside holiday resort. A hotel unlike anything else in the world, where the sea can be experienced in all its aspects: by relaxing on the enchanting beach of pure white sand, by savoring delicacies at the Barbecue Restaurant a short stroll from the crystal-clear waters, or by joining in the fun of the many outdoor activities on offer. The hotel dominates the splendid turquoise-blue bay with its whitewashed exterior, curved lines and arched windows, while the wonderful flower gardens lead to the nearby beach.

Hotel Pitrizza is one of the world’s most exclusive hotels. It is a romantic location for those in search of peace and the utmost privacy, in close contact with the pristine nature and timeless beauty of the Costa Smeralda. Designed in 1963 by the architect Luigi Vietti, the hotel is the quintessence of luxury. A group of villas, perfectly set in their natural surroundings, scattered amidst rocks and flowers, a splendid private beach where space is raised to the status of relaxation, a sea-water pool carved into the wind-sculpted rocks and a striking view of the bay: an exclusive refuge of natural beauty.

Cervo Hotel, designed in 1962 by famous architect Luigi Vietti, is the ideal place for those wishing to stay in the heart of Porto Cervo. Open all year, the hotel overlooks the village’s central square, a stone’s throw from the most famous boutiques and the Marina with its luxury yachts. A refuge of refined simplicity, which fits attractively into the Costa Smeralda’s natural surroundings and typical style.
