Delphina Hotels and Resorts are quickly becoming the go-to destination for couples seeking a romantic getaway in Sardinia, fondly known as the ‘Caribbean of Europe’. Rivalling long-haul destinations for engagements, honeymoons and anniversaries, Delphina hotels and resorts offer bespoke 5* and 4*plus Romance packages and feel-good experiences to suit every couple in serene, picturesque settings, all just a two-hour flight from the UK.

Some of these special experiences include: private candlelight meals in the room, poolside or on the beach, couples SPA experiences, a private helicopter transfer with a panoramic flight, exclusive boat charter, a private driver, canoe tour with an exclusive expert guide along the coast with the chance to swim in a secluded bay or dedicated tour guide to discover the many cultural and archaeological wonders of Sardinia. As an extra special treat Delphina also offers gifts to any couple celebrating their wedding or anniversary, such as a welcome bottle of sparkling wine in their room, a souvenir gift and a silver Sardinian wedding ring, depending on which hotel they are staying at.
For couples looking to relax and feel well together, Delphina specialises in the ancient art of Thalassotherapy, healing through heated jets of seawater, available at the many SPAs.
