Experience the sea from dawn to dusk

Welcome to the New Bussola

Your Boutique Hotel on Poetto Beach

Nestled between the beautiful Sella del Diavolo promontory and the renowned Poetto beach, New Bussola is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Golfo degli Angeli. But it is not just the scenic location that makes the New Bussola so special; it is a true historical legacy on the southern Sardinian sea. It has been a symbol of comfort and light-heartedness since the 1960s, when some scenes of the film ‘La Calda Vita’ (The Warm Life) by Florestano Vancini, with a young Catherine Spaak, were filmed here. In recent years it has undergone major restoration work to bring it back to its former glory. Today, the New Bussola, while maintaining the characteristic features of the original property, has become synonymous with innovation and environmental sustainability. Its six luxury suites with four swimming pools, just a few steps from the sea, will offer you an ambience of absolute relaxation.
With a splendid view of the Sella del Diavolo (Devil’s Saddle), separated from the sea only by the pools
Every guest is important to us, which is why we always try to offer customised services to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing
