Hotel Romazzino, a Belmond Hotel and Cheval Blanc Pitrizza will mark LVMH's entry in Sardinia, Italy. For Belmond, Hotel Romazzino will be its 8th hotel in Italy, adding to its locations in Tuscany, Florence, Venice, Portofino, the Amalfi Coast, and two in Taormina, Sicily. For Cheval Blanc, Cheval Blanc Pitrizza will be its third hotel in Europe, after Cheval Blanc Paris, Cheval Blanc St. Tropez and Cheval Blanc Courchevel, and its sixth overall given Cheval Blanc Randheli in the Maldives and Cheval Blanc St. Barths.
Hotel Romazzino, a Belmond Hotel
The Hotel Romazzino, currently part of The Luxury Collection, is located at Via Romazzino, 4 on one of the loveliest white sand beaches in Costa Smeralda, about a 30 minute drive from Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB), served by flights from London, Milan, Rome and seasonal flights from Paris, Madrid, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, and many other European cities.
The hotel's current 2023 season will still be part of Luxury Collection, but following renovations and rebranding, it will reopen in May 2024 as a Belmond property. The hotel, which has 100 rooms and suites as well as private villas, offers both saltwater and a fresh water swimming pools, in addition to its beach. Activities include an outdoor fitness center with a view of the sea, Spa, yoga room, golf putting green, tennis, and water sports, including kayaking, sailing, and snorkeling.

Cheval Blanc Pitrizza
Hotel Pitrizza, also currently a Luxury Collection hotel, will continue to operate under Luxury Collection while being renovated, and will reopen as Cheval Blanc Pitrizza in 2026. With just 50 rooms and suites, it's a more exclusive and private retreat.
TravelSort Clients can enjoy STARS benefits for the current Luxury Collection hotel, and Virtuoso benefits once it reopens as Cheval Blanc Pitrizza.
Both properties tend to get high marks for their views and natural beauty, and Pitrizza's food is also reviewed well, but Belmond and Cheval Blanc guests will expect a higher caliber of service than these hotels are currently known for.
