“Life in Sardinia is perhaps the best kind of life a man could wish for: forty-four thousand kilometres of forests, countryside and coasts immersed in a miraculous sea is my idea of Paradise.” [F.De Andrè]
In Sardinia, a mysterious, magical land rich in history, lies a peninsula with over 60 hectares of unspoiled wildlife, a unique place that is home to the world’s only Resort within a natural park. This park is home to all the animals and plants typical of this ancient land. Not only is this land brimming with endemic species, but it also maintains a modern concept of global wellness.
The Arbatax Park Resort lies in the Heart of the province of Ogliastra, one of the 5 blue zones of the world and home of the Centenarians. As well as its beguiling crystal sea, this amazing area of Sardinia boasts charming traditions, people still in touch with their roots and history, silence and nature that has the power to embrace and heal.
Thanks to our plastic-free initiatives and other eco-friendly activities, the Arbatax Park Resort was awarded the title of Best Eco Resort in the World from 2019 to 2022. Three further important international accolades have been awarded to Arbatax Park in 2022, that ranked first in the Italy’s Leading Eco Resort, Europe’s Leading Eco Resort and World’s Leading Resort Sensory Gardens categories of the prestigious World Travel Awards, the Oscars of tourism. The proclamation endorses and enhances the previous awards won and certifies the resort as the real benchmark for eco-sustainable tourism worldwide.
The Arbatax Park Resort was founded in 2010, thanks to the vision of entrepreneurs Giorgio and Angela Mazzella. After years of working as project developers in Sardinia’s hotel/tourism sector, they decided to undertake a new challenge together, opening up their home to the world to share their passion for plants, animals, tradition, children and their unconditional love for the land they call home.
Following the global financial crisis of 2009 and the collapse of the now obsolete holiday village industry, Giorgio and Angela decided to overcome this challenging transition period by launching a bold and forward-thinking project that would transform three existing holiday villages (Telis village, Cala Moresca village and Monte Turri hotel) into a new, innovative eco-resort in Italy – Sardinia.
