sbe, the leading international hospitality group that develops, manages and operates award-winning brands, today announced the expansion of the iconic Delano brand to Europe. Delano Porto Cervo in Costa Smeralda, Sardinia Italy, expected to open by June 2023, represents the next stage of international growth for sbe and the Delano brand in one of the world’s most idyllic and sought-after travel destinations. Celebrating its 25th year of delivering trendsetting boutique hospitality to its customers, Delano will continue its legacy of unparalleled luxury, relaxation and beauty at its new Sardinian location, which has long been a destination for the world’s most discerning travelers. Sbe will take over and redevelop the existing property in partnership with private equity firm Quianto Capital and its strategic advisor and asset manager, Enma Capital. With international expansion at the core of sbe’s strategic growth plan, the company will add nearly 50 new hotels to its portfolio nationally and internationally by the year 2021.
Nestled into the sparkling seaside of famed Sardinian locale Costa Smeralda, the 68-room property will undergo a complete redevelopment and remodel in keeping with Delano’s signature elevated style. Steps from the romantic white sand beaches and dazzling marina of the Porto Cervo village, the destination has its roots in the rich Italian design of famed architect Luigi Vietti. The property will feature a world-class restaurant, lobby bar, pool bar, beach club, fitness studio and other hotel-related amenities developed as part of the hotel.
sbe subsidiary Dakota Development, led by President Joe Faust, will provide design and construction management services for the luxury project in development.
Delano is a classic trailblazer in the boutique hotel space, with Philippe Starck’s Delano South Beach credited with defining South Beach as a sought-after destination. Situated in beautiful Costa Smeralda, the luxury resort is poised to make a similar mark on Sardinia, embodying sbe’s signature full circle lifestyle approach. As with every sbe hotel, Delano’s recognizable design point-of-view will be visible throughout the property with sophistication and ease blending with timeless design.
