The spa at Relais Villa del Golfo has a fantastic choice of traditional and bespoke face & body treatments including the option of choosing sounds, colours and smells personal to you during your treatment. Anti-ageing, relaxing and energising treatments are all available including some exclusive mud therapies using Sardinian essential oils.

Breakfast at Hotel Relais Villa del Golfo is a feast for all the senses and the two restaurants give you two different styles of food. Miraluna Restaurant is known for some of the best Mediterranean food on the island and is where traditional Italian dishes are created using organic, local and seasonal produce including the catch of the day straight from the fishermens' boats.
You can sit by the pool on the dining terrace and enjoy the view across the bay of Cannigione. The culinary experience continues in a different vein at Restaurant Agriturismo La Colti, a traditional farmhouse restaurant serving typical Sardinian dishes from the area of Gallura. The menu changes on a daily basis as the restaurant uses home grown produce and meats including lamb, chickens, rabbits, honey from the bees, fruit, and vegetables from the garden.
