The Nicolaus Village Baia dei Pini is just a few hundred metres from the beach of Budoni, a lively resort town with gleaming white beaches, archaeological sites and nature trails. Budoni is set on the north-east coast of the island, in a strategic position between the Costa Smeralda and the Gulf of Orosei, thus the ideal destination for a seaside holiday in Sardinia.
Baia dei Pini is a 4-star family village, offering guests all the services needed for a sea and relaxation holiday: beach equipped with sun umbrellas and sun loungers, three panoramic pools with hydro-massage and solarium area, two restaurants offering excellent local cuisine and two bars open from morning to evening. The village also offers a rich programme of day and evening activities, meeting the tastes of kids, teens and adults alike.
The 268 rooms of the hotel are all light-filled and comfortable, furnished in typical Sardinian style and with great attention to detail. Almost all the rooms are set on the ground floor, divided into small clusters surrounded by the lush garden of the village. Rooms may have an independent entrance, plus a balcony, patio or veranda.
Just 300 m from the hotel, guests, after walking down a short tree-lined path, will find the Marina di Budoni, a splendid bay of fine white sand, lapped by a turquoise sea. The sea bottom slopes down gently making it ideal for the kids. Hotel guests enjoy a reserved portion of the beach for their exclusive use with sun-loungers and umbrellas, available on a first-come, first-served basis. The private beach has toilet facilities and showers and is equipped with wheeled loungers for guests with limited mobility. Beach towels can be rented.
The village is the ideal venue for a family holiday with the kids; from June to September Baia dei Pini offers youngsters an entertainment programme studied to meet the tastes of the various age groups: the Nicolino Baby Club from 3 to 8 years; the Nicolino Mini Club from 8 to 12 and the Nick Club from 12 to 18.
Our team of qualified entertainment staff each day propose a number of educational and games activities, not forgetting art and sports plus a rich evening programme with theatre shows, theme evenings and ‘junior’ dances. For our smaller guests there is a feeding bottle prep area open 24/7, a dedicated pool, four sports fields for tournaments and team games.
The two village restaurants offer typical Sardinian dishes, all prepared with fresh, healthy ingredients from the surrounding area. At the main restaurant, a rich international breakfast is served and there is buffet service for lunch and dinner, with a wide selection of starters, surf and turf entrées, side dishes and salads, fruit and dessert. Each week the restaurant organises a typical Sardinian dinner and a gala dinner.
With prior booking, guests can choose the Amare restaurant-grill, open for lunch and dinner, which offers pan-fried and grilled meat and fish with table service. Once a week, the restaurant offers a special dinner based on lobster and seafood specialities.
The Angolo del Dormiglione (dormouse corner!) is available to late risers who prefer breakfast between 9.45 and 11 am.
The Soft All Inclusive formula is based on full board with beverages (bottled water, wine, beer, soft drinks on tap) at the Central Restaurant or the Grill Restaurant. It also includes unlimited water, soft drinks and tea/coffee at the village bar from 10 am to 10 pm.
The hotel can provide specific dishes for guests with food intolerances (gluten/lactose) or for those following a particularly health-conscious diet.
