Hotel Danila, with its terraces and gardens, carpets of flowers and shrubs overlooking the Gulf of Biodola, is a beautifully cared for and exclusive destination. Immersed in the Mediterranean maquis, just a few steps from the sandy beach at Scaglieri, Hotel Danila has been known for its friendly hospitality since 1956. The hotel also has a long-standing reputation for sports activities on offer as well as a strong commitment to environmental issues, such to have been awarded recognition from the Italian Green movement, Legambiente, for good practices used in the protection and enhancement of the local area.
Unique on Elba, the hotel has also received the Ecolabel, the European certificate attesting product and service quality of low environmental impact.
Well-being for guests, in harmony with the geography of the Island, is the hotel's forte and it is the ideal destination for guests seeking peace, quiet and relaxation. Essential and relaxing furnishings in wicker and bamboo, the guest areas overlook four terraces and beyond to the islands of Capraia and Corsica, standing out on the horizon.
The management of the hotel is completely orientated to energy saving and re-cycling. Aluminium has been outlawed at Hotel Danila and only glass and re-cyclable materials are used. Biodegradable products, palm and coconut oil soap and strictly ecological paper.
Interiors and exteriors are lit using low energy consumption lighting; separate waste collection is a daily habit and water consumption is reduced thanks to a re-cycling plant which powers the hot water and air conditioning systems.
At the table, health and tradition are the key. Even the most refined palates find delight in the traditional cuisine, dishes made from simple recipes using bio ingredients.
Jasmin, eucalyptus and oleander dot the Mediterranean vegetation surrounding the four villas comprising the hotel. The variety of bedroom accommodation, inspired by these three plants, ensures guests comfort and a natural, health regenerating atmosphere, accompanied by the fragrance of myrtle and arbutus.
Hotel Danila bases its philosophy on the environment, promoting sport and nature. Guests will find footpaths to explore this part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park within the immediate vicinity of the hotel; long walks can be enjoyed to forget the stress and strain of city life.
What better way for guests, sports lovers or otherwise and for whom the hotel owners guarantee a variety of open-air activities, from walking to mountain bike tours, snorkelling to kayaking, all lead by expert guides, to truly enter into the spirit of this island suspended between the sea and the sky.
