Hospitality group sbe is expanding its upmarket Delano brand to Europe. Delano Porto Cervo in Costa Smeralda, Sardinia Italy, is expected to open by June 2023, the first of seven branded projects to open in Europe.
Delano will continue its 25-year legacy of unparalleled luxury, relaxation and beauty at its new Sardinian location, which has long been a destination for the world’s most discerning travellers. Sbe will take over and redevelop the existing property.
With international expansion at the core of sbe’s strategic growth plan, the company will add nearly 50 new hotels to its portfolio nationally and internationally by the year 2021.
Nestled into the sparkling seaside of famed Sardinian locale Costa Smeralda, the 68-room property will undergo a complete redevelopment and remodel in keeping with Delano’s elevated style.
Steps from the romantic white-sand beaches and dazzling marina of the Porto Cervo village, the destination has its roots in the rich Italian design of famed architect Luigi Vietti. The property will feature a world-class restaurant, lobby bar, pool bar, beach club, fitness studio and other hotel-related amenities developed as part of the hotel.
Hospitality juggernaut Accor is a stakeholder in the luxury lifestyle hospitality company, sbe.
