Hilton Worldwide has announced the arrival of its first hotel in Sardinia—the Doubletree by Hilton, Olbia-Sardinia. The opening marks the company’s debut on the popular Italian island and is a reflection of the continued growth of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio of brands across Italy. Situated on Sardinia’s northern coast in the Gallura region, the Doubletree by Hilton Olbia-Sardinia is a few hundred feet from Olbia city vcenter, close to the city’s historic port and within four miles from the Olbia-Costa Smeralda airport with direct airline connections to several major European cities.
"With more than 10 Doubletree by Hilton hotels and resorts now open throughout Europe, this opening in Olbia reaffirms our plans to introduce new Doubletree by Hilton locations in some of the most sought after leisure and business destinations around the world," said Rob Palleschi, global head for Doubletree Hotels.
The new-build hotel is operated by PROMA srl, under a franchise agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide. The Doubletree by Hilton, Olbia-Sardinia also represents the third Doubletree by Hilton to open in Italy, after a centre city hotel in Milan and a coastal golf resort in Acaya-Lecce.
Picturesque harbour and countryside views grace the hotel’s 124 spacious guestrooms and suite. The property includes four flexible meeting rooms that can be expanded for groups of up to 150, reception style. Additional indoor and outdoor event space and a business center make the hotel suitable for meetings, seminars, social receptions and weddings. As an added incentive, the Doubletree by Hilton, Olbia-Sardinia can arrange preferred tee times for the Robert Trent Jones-designed Pevero Golf Club, home of the Costa Smeralda Golf Academy.
The Doubletree by Hilton, Olbia-Sardinia presents a selection of dining options. The Tilibbas Restaurant offers acclaimed regional and Italian specialties complemented by an extensive wine list and an outdoor terrace, weather permitting. Occupying a commanding location in the lobby of the hotel, the relaxed and stylish Flamingos Bar features a 82-foot-high vault, with ambient light streaming through the large windows. Room service also is available for guests upon request.
