  • Chia Laguna Resort

    About this holiday

    Chia Laguna Resort is an outstanding property in Sardinia that is perfect for active families, located just one hour's drive from Cagliari airport. The resort offers an abundance of land and water sports as well as a choice of accommodation options in four separate, very individual hotels, ensuring that there is something to suit all tastes and facilities to entertain all ages.

    Resort description
    Sports and wellness are the focal point for Chia Laguna Resort. Comprised of four luxury hotels, IHC Chia Laguna Resort is situated on Sardinia’s south-west coast and offers a fusion of tranquillity and sporting facilities for all the family. Benefitting from unspoiled, natural scenery and warm Mediterranean climate, water and land sports are offered in abundance whilst the sun parasols and white sands of the beach lie meters away.
    There is a wide variety of accommodation for families available at Chia Laguna resort, from suites with panoramic views to rooms that can accommodate an extra cot or bunkbed. Throughout each of the four hotels, differing characteristics are tied by contemporary Italian design. A stylish understated simplicity of comfortable and spacious decoration is contrasted against the vibrant flowers and lush green foliage throughout the resort. There are activities to suit all ages from the Natural Chia Spa, providing a heightened sense of wellness to the energetic excitement of the four children’s clubs which offer sporting and creative activities. The diving centre and vast array of water sports make perfect use of the beach’s clear water and for those who prefer dry land, Tennis and Football Academies are ideal. The resort’s five swimming pools also cater for all from the silent pool in Hotel Laguna to the dedicated children’s pool for water games. The 10 restaurants offer locally sourced ingredients used to create the most versatile of dishes from steak houses to sushi, a true sensory treat. IHC Chia Laguna is an excellent family choice with a privileged beach location and fantastic facilities.
