Welcome back to Forte Village this summer 2022

Rather than standing idle during the global pandemic, Forte Village rose to the occasion by continuing an extensive renovation to welcome back its guests.

Among the biggest projects is the full renovation of the Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa, an exclusive offering laid within exotic gardens just moments from the beachfront. The six seawater Thalasso pools and 30 treatment rooms come newly revamped and upgraded further by a ‘tisaneria’ (herbal tea bar), changing rooms and refurbished gym, all flooded by natural skylight and connected via open walkways through the gardens.

“We are thrilled to welcome guests back to Forte Village in our beautiful corner of Sardinia. Our seaside luxury resort is in a class by itself, unlike any other place in the world.  We are proud to offer an extraordinary choice of services and activities to fulfil every guest’s interests and passions, at any age, as well as offer them the chance to discover new ones.  Easily accessible from all major European travel hubs, we invite guests to enjoy the incomparable gift of nature amidst our 120 acres of beautiful gardens, where the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea meet the most incredible white sand beach.” – Lorenzo Giannuzzi, CEO & General Manager Forte Village.
