Overlooking the splendid Biodola Bay, Elba's most exclusive, the hotel takes its name from the “biodolo”, the fragrant little blue flower found on the edges of the long expanse of fine, golden sand. Geraniums and bouganvilleas frame the large terrace with its view of incredible sunsets. In the evening, the sun disappears slowly into the crystal-clear sea between Corsica and Capraia, which stand out against the horizon. Its quiet location in the Tuscan Archipelago Park and the large, cool garden in which it stands make the hotel the ideal place for an enjoyable holiday of sport and relaxation.
The hotel's restaurant, with its large windows overlooking the pool, is famous for its exquisite cuisine and service, and its cellar of over 300 choice wines.
The popular Maitù beach restaurant offers a range of Tuscan specialities.
The rooms and suites, all with terrace and furnished in Tuscan style, have all the comforts one would expect of a top-class hotel.
The hotel has a large private beach, saltwater pool, hydromassage, 8 clay tennis courts, 6-hole golf course with practice ground on a lake, five-a-side football and volleyball.
