The Italian island of Sardinia is located in the heart of the Mediterranean, covering an area of 24.000 km2 and with almost a quarter of the Italian coastline (1,800 km). The island has a population of 1,600,000 and is made up of the provinces of Cagliari, Sassari, Oristano and Nuoro.
Home to more than a dozen ancient cultures, Sardinia is like a mini-continent full of archaeological treasures on plains and rocks, set in an emerald green sea. The exclusive Costa Esmeralda (Emerald Coast), so called for the color of its waters, has become a meeting point for the elite and is the image of classical Mediterranean views, with whitewashed houses peeping out from lush green vegetation, all bathed by crystal-clear waters.
Sol Meliá is the leading hotel company in Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean, the third largest in Europe and tenth in the world ranking. The company currently provides more than 350 hotels in 30 countries through its Meliá Hotels, TRYP Hotels, Sol Hotels and Paradisus Resorts brands.
