Further testifying to Delphina’s unwavering commitment to the environment, in addition to being recognized as the best independent green hotel group in Europe and the best green resort in Europe and Italy for the Resort Valle dell’Erica, this year another international accolade is added, The Norns Awards. This special award was given to Elena Muntoni, Brand Manager of Delphina hotels & resorts, for her tangible efforts in preserving the unique nature of Sardinia and making it a primary resource to offer an increasingly eco-friendly vacation, discovering the island’s traditions and genuine cuisine, in line with the “We are green®” protocol. But that’s not all! Francesco Muntoni, Founder and President of Delphina hotels & resorts, was recently appointed Knight of the Order of Merit of the Republic by the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella for his contribution to Gallura as a visionary entrepreneur who paved the way for luxury tourism that protects and preserves the land and culture of Sardinia.
With 12 five-star hotels, 4-star superior and 4-star hotels, exclusive residences, 6 SPAs, and prestigious villas all nestled in green Mediterranean parks overlooking the sea between the Costa Smeralda, the La Maddalena Archipelago and the Gulf of Asinara, in locations such as Cannigione, Palau, Santa Teresa Gallura, Isola Rossa, and Badesi, Delphina hotels & resorts has been the friend in Sardinia for all those who wish to experience authenticity, enjoy the sea in total freedom, surround themselves with unique landscapes and get in touch with the island’s culture and traditions for 30 years.
The love for the territory and the desire to protect these natural paradises have driven Delphina to commit more and more concretely to the environment. A journey that began even before the birth of the facilities and culminated in the We are green® brand, a protocol of best practices created and registered by Delphina to represent its love for nature. Delphina hotels & resorts is the first Italian hotel chain to use 100% green energy, sourced from renewable sources, in all its hotels, resorts, and headquarters, saving about 16,918 tons of CO2 in the last five years, an amount absorbed by about 119,612 trees in one year. We support the economic realities and the small excellences of our territories with the “Genuine Local Food Oriented®” project, Delphina’s quality mark, in support of a healthy, tasty, and right cuisine, based on genuine ingredients that respect seasonality and preferably are sourced locally.
