Hotel History


Costa Smeralda was born in the early sixties, thanks to the revolutionary vision of a committee of investors and architects. The aim was to create an exclusive destination for the international jetsetters on an untouched piece of land in the North Eastern coast of Sardinia, through a strict master plan and realizing all the necessary infrastructures (from the airport to the streets, from the drainage system to all facilities, including golf courses, hotels, residences, villas, etc.). The main and core principle was to build everything in full respect of the surrounding beautiful nature, using the finest indigenous materials and on the rich and ancient local heritage. 

Breathtaking Views

The land itself, with its stunning natural beauty, inspired architects and developers. Part of the design team for the initial development of Costa Smeralda was architect Luigi Vietti. At that time, Porto Cervo bay was a stupendous, uncontaminated natural port without roads, electricity, water or telephones, just a rocky land where wild goats grazed. 

Life Centre

In 1964, constructions of the original core of the village started under Luigi Vietti's creative lead: the iconic Piazzetta, destined to become the life-centre of Costa Smeralda, has already been paved and the Cervo Hotel, together with the first houses and Marina of Porto Cervo, were rising as integral part of the village.
