Long a magnet for the beautiful people, this hyper-glamorous five-star Starwood hotel was built to resemble an ancient Sardinian fishing village, with its own covered wooden bridge. The rustic-elegant interior has wood-beam ceilings, terra-cotta floors, Sardinian arts-and-crafts, and porticoes overlooking the Cala di Volpe Bay. Summer prices, including the requisite half board, are so high (close to €2,400 and up) that you may think you've got the exchange rate wrong
by a factor of 10—this is one of the most expensive hotels in the world (discounted rates, outside of July and August, are available with loyalty points and online booking).
