Fodor's Expert Review Petra Segreta Resort and Spa

Via Buddeu, San Pantaleo, Olbia, Sardinia, 07026, Italy

Sea and mountain views, top-quality cuisine, and chic and spacious guest rooms are the main draws at this romantic boutique hotel outside the picturesque village of San Pantaleo. Heavy oak tables and wood-beam ceilings lend a farmhouse character to the lounges, and the restaurant, Il Fuoco Sacro, has a stunning veranda overlooking the verdant hills and the sea in the distance (there's a second, less formal restaurant). Relax in the heated outdoor pool, or rejuvenate in the wellness center equipped with a Turkish bath, a Roman sauna, and a menu of massage treatments. The hotel, perched on a hilltop covered by junipers, olive trees, and white granite boulders, is a few kilometers inland from the Costa Smeralda, and a 10- to 15-minute drive from some prime beaches.
