The latest addition to the extensive Chia Laguna Resort has an enviable position overlooking Chia Bay and the Mediterranean.
The beautifully-renovated Chia Laguna’s Hotel Baia sits just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Monte Cogoni beach. The style here really gives you a sense of place with white-washed interiors brought to life with splashes of Mediterranean blues, rustic wooden features and modern furnishings. There’s a half Olympic-sized infinity pool on site, as well as a restaurant where all your included meals will be served. Out of the four properties within the resort, this is the closest to the sea, making it perfect for couples and families… Monte Cogoni Beach can be reached on foot in just a few minutes. The diving centre sits adjacent to the hotel and the watersports centre is located nearby on Dune di Campana beach.
The main restaurant here is La Pergola which has also gone through extensive restyling to create beautiful contemporary spaces with calming light wood and stone colour décor. Your included meals will be served here, however you can dine at a number of further restaurants throughout the resort for a supplement.
The rooms echo the resort’s Mediterranean chic design and they are fantastically situated on the promontory. Some of the rooms overlook the lagoon where wild birds, including flamingos, can be seen. Well worth the upgrade are the Prestige Mare Rooms which have sea views.

The award-winning Chia Laguna, which sits on a rugged hillside with wonderful views of golden sand dunes and the Mediterrean, attempts and succeeds to make everyone welcome. There are four hotels within the resort, three of which we feature – Hotel Baia, the Four Star Hotel Village and the Five Star Hotel Laguna.
Each hotel has its own pool and designated restaurant, where your included meals will be served daily. Where everyone comes together is the centrally-situated Piazza degli Ulivi, home to a number of boutiques, the Bar Piazza and entertainment options. Extensive facilities and activities ensure that all guests are catered for. There’s the new Chia Natural Spa, which is described as a ‘temple of wellness’; a kids’ club and adventure club for teens; and plenty of water and land activities and sports including diving, a football academy and tennis club. There is a free shuttle train that runs down to Dune di Campana beach where sunbeds and parasols await (free of charge from the third row).
