Delano brand coming to Europe 2023

Italy: sbe has announced the expansion of the Delano brand into Europe with the opening of Delano Porto Cervo in Costa Smeralda, Sardinia Italy by June 2023.

Sbe will take over and redevelop the existing property in partnership with private equity firm Quianto Capital and strategic advisor and asset manager, Enma Capital. 

The 68-room hotel will be remodelled in keeping with Delano’s signature style. It will feature a world-class restaurant, a lobby bar, pool bar, beach club, fitness studio and other amenities.

Sbe subsidiary Dakota Development, led by president Joe Faust, will provide design and construction management services for the project.

Chadi Farhat, sbe’s chief operating officer, said: “I am delighted to partner with Enrico and Petra Meneghetti to deliver the iconic Delano brand to one of the most beautiful and intimate resort destinations in the European market. We couldn’t have found a better partner to launch the Delano brand in Italy. As we continue to scale our signature brands across the globe, we look forward to offering to the sbe tribe more of the creative, customised, and exclusive experiences for which sbe has made our name. At the heart of this new project is a modern, wellness-driven take on luxury and leisure, which we know our customers will enjoy upon its opening in 2023.”

Enrico Meneghetti, CEO of Enma Capital & Partners Limited, added: “As strategic advisor of Quianto Capital Limited during the investment selection process and subsequently of the operators, we chose Delano as a luxury hospitality partner to revive the worldliness and the true flavour of the origins of Costa Smeralda when it was frequented by the international jet set and added the maximum value to the unique culture, history and geography of Sardinia. Delano will play a key role in setting a new luxury hospitality standard that will meet the demand of minimal but exclusive Sardinian holidays and generate a shared and sustainable long-term growth for the surrounding region. It will be a unique place like the area in which it is located.”

Petra Hofer, CEO of Quianto Capital Limited, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with sbe. We are looking forward to present the wealth of the place offered by Sardinia, as well as Delano’s exclusive effortlessly chic hospitality, to create a unique world-class resort in Porto Cervo.”

Sbe said it will add nearly 50 new hotels to its portfolio nationally and internationally by the year 2021.  In February 2020, the company announced 10 Mondrian-branded hotels are to open by 2021, along with its first ever location in Asia.
