  • Family activity holidays at the Chia Laguna

    Family activity holidays at the Chia Laguna

    Near Cagliari, Sardinia
    On the scenic Italian island of Sardinia, the IHC Chia Laguna Resort offers a wide range of activities in a warm, Mediterranean climate.
    The Chia Laguna Resort on the south-west coast of Sardinia is comprised of four luxury hotels, each with private pool and access to the first-class sporting and wellness facilities that the resort prides itself on. Children can partake in football, tennis, water sports, among other things, while adults can either get involved or relax at the poolside or in the recently opened Chia Natural Spa. Four Kids Clubs, a range of flexible room types, and the combination of land and water sport academies with diverse evening entertainments, 10 restaurants, and 8 bars, ensures that the Chia Laguna has something for every guest.

    Land Sports
    The Chia Laguna has 4 tennis courts, a tennis club, 1 full-sized football pitch, a football academy, a gym, and 1 five-a-side football pitch.

    Land Sport Academies and Courses
    The Chia Laguna Football Academy offers coaching sessions and matches organised and run by ex-professional and professional players. The sessions are recorded and sent on to participants so their experiences can be immortalised. The classes focus on specific parts of the game, such as passing, shooting, and defending, to help hone the children’s skills. Participants are provided with a branded football kit. The Chia Tennis Club offers courses for participants of all abilities and ages, organised and run by the Federal Coach. Guests can also rent bikes and mountain bikes at the hotel, or join a biking excursion.

    Water Sports
    The Chia Laguna has 5 freshwater swimming pools, a diving centre, and facilities for windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking, surfing, banana boating, and hobie cat sailing.

    Water Sport Academies and Courses
    The Chia Laguna Diving Centre offers snorkelling and diving trips, as well as classes. The water sports centre at the Dune di Campana Beach offers lessons with expert instructors.

    Kid’s Clubs
    The kid’s clubs provided at Chia Laguna are tailored to their age group and offer a range of activities for active and creative children. The Baby Nursery is for infants aged 0-2 years. Babysitters come at an added charge. For children aged 3-6 years, the Mini Club hosts a series of clubs and classes in which children can play, engage creatively, or even learn how to make traditional Italian dishes. The Cadet Club, for children aged 7-10, allows children to partake in a series of land or water sports. Children can then help prepare the evening entertainment for that day. For those above 11, there are the Junior and Adventures Clubs, which host activities such as five-a-side football, beach volleyball, and other individual or group sports.

    Other Activities
    The Chia Laguna has five freshwater pools, three of which are reserved for individual hotels. The Club House swimming pool is the largest on the complex, and has a shallow area for children to play in. A snack bar and restaurant by the side is open for lunch and dinner in July and August. The Bimbi swimming pool is entirely for children, with shallow water, games, and entertainments organised by the dedicated Animazione Team throughout the day. In the evenings, the Piazza degli Ulivi is the place to be. Concerts, popular bars, themed events, and seasonal restaurants help make this a lively and enchanting place to be once the sun has set.

    Excursions and Activities Nearby
    Just 15km from the Chia Laguna Resort is the 27-hole Molas Golf Course, one of the most famous in Sardinia. A riding school is also close by, offering opportunities to ride across the stunning Sardinian scenery. Chia Laguna also hosts a series of exciting excursions, taking guests to see the flamingos that stand beside the nearby lagoons, along mountain paths, quad bike or boat rides, and into Cagliari or the Caves of Is Zuddas.

    Spa, Health, and Fitness
    For the adults, the Chia Natural Spa is a haven of relaxation and serenity. Split over three levels, the spa has whirlpool baths with panoramic views, a sauna, Turkish bath, and treatment rooms. The onsite gym is equipped with Techno Gym facilities, and a personal trainer is on hand for fitness sessions.
