Inside the hotel, life is carried out calmly and at a slow pace amongst luxurious rooms, top quality restaurants, various facilities, a spa and swimming pools, including a children’s pool.
The heart of the Thalasso & Spa Venere is the heated sea water swimming pool because it is completely in harmony with the sea; in fact the whole property, and not just the spa, is centred around this. The spa boasts many other facilities and services, including the sauna, Turkish bath, fresh water hydromassage tub, gym, tea corner, relaxation area and numerous booths where massages and aesthetic treatments are carried out.
The three main treatments performed that make use of sea and thermae water are hydrogymnastics, hydromassage and Spa Jet techniques.

Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
The main attractions in the surrounding area can be reached easily via boat trips, from the islands of the Maddalena archipelago to the Emerald coast and Corsica, the south of which boasts places of great charm such as Bonifacio and the island of Lavezzi. On the Emerald Coasts, the main point of interest is, of course, the wonderful and characteristic Porto Cervo and its small roads that are filled with flowers and famous squares where you can enjoy tasty aperitifs. A visit to Palau is also a must, where, during the summer, a typical little market is set up, as is the uninhabited island of Caprera which is home to Garbaldi’s house and tomb, whilst on the west coast of Sardinia you can find Alghero which gives you a great insight into the Catalan culture which has survived here both in terms architecture, as can be seen in the centre, and language. Lastly, the hinterland of the Gallura region is rich in splendid little towns nestled in beautiful mountainous landscapes, and here you can enjoy ancient traditions and a prestigious cuisine.
