Geco di Giada Art Suites
, Sa Matta Poderada 12A, Porto Rotondo.
This exclusive art guesthouse in Porto Rotondo is a unique place to spend a holiday. Each of the six guest suites has been designed by an artist exclusively for Geco di Giada. Nothing, absolutely nothing, anywhere in the house is “ordinary”.
The villa-style guesthouse stands in gardens of 3000 square metres. In front there is a large terrace with a swimming pool and a direct view over Porto Rotondo and the harbour there. Behind the villa, there is a rocky hillside garden filled with junipers, fruit trees and statuesque cacti. Two paved paths extend across the garden, one leading to the Charming Flamingo wellness area where guests can enjoy massages and relaxing treatments in the shade of the gazebo. The other leads to the Peacock’s Nest panoramic bar where guest’s can enjoy a cocktail and take in the view.
Geckos On Juniper is the large verandah on the front of the villa where breakfast is served each day. Breakfasts are typically Italian with croissants, pastries, fresh bread with all manner of toppings. Then there’s fresh fruit, yoghurt, fruit juices and local cold meats and cheeses. As a little extra, the chef will prepare a tailor-made breakfast adding in such things as sweet or savoury omelettes and pancakes.
Six different animals, five different designers, six very different rooms:

Fiery Flamingo is a large suite by Bob Marongiu with a 15 sqm living room and a private terrace with parasol and sunbeds. The decorative fireplace lights up at sunset and the suite features the Coral Flamingos artwork and a Sardinian mask over the fireplace.
