Four stars of elegance just a step from the sea and the golf course. A classical and Mediterranean-style hotel. Is Molas Hotel is located 33 kilometres from Cagliari, near Pula. Thanks to its extraordinary panoramic position, it enjoys a magnificent view of the sea of Sardinia, the tower of Nora and the hills of Sulcis, cloaked in the colours and scents of the Mediterranean macchia. Open from March to November, Is Molas Hotel has 75 rooms and one suite. The rooms are laid out on three levels and frame the garden, with its lawn and typical Sardinian shrubs, like a theatre. From the reception you enter the hall, with its indoor bar, open in the afternoon and evening. The atmosphere is welcoming, peaceful and cheerful, with an unmistakable Mediterranean touch. The dining room of the restaurant is at the disposal of the hotel's guests for lunches and dinner. The cuisine offered by the chef of Is Molas Hotel to its guests is based on the local products of Pula and Sardinia: constantly changing recipes, inspired by the Mediterranean tradition and enriched with touches of the Orient, presented with great care. The restaurant can seat around 150 indoors and the same number in the terrace. From May to September the heart of the hotel is the garden laid out around the swimming pool, with an open-air bar sheltered by the wooden patio. The town of Pula, with its nightclubs, shops and the private beach of the Is Molas Beach Club, is just a few minutes from the hotel. The golf course of Is Molas with its 27 holes is only 100 metres from the reception.
Twenty-seven holes with a view of the sea of Sardinia. One of the finest golf courses in Italy, a venue for prestigious competitions. The Is Molas Golf course is one of the most famous in Italy, and has been the benchmark for this sport in Sardinia for over thirty years. Thanks to the proximity of the sea and the protection of the surrounding hills the locality of Is Molas enjoys a unique microclimate, mild and particularly favourable for golf all year round: the temperature reaches 20 degrees C at the beginning of the spring, rises to over 30 in summer and even in December and January can easily exceed 15 degrees. The golf course at Is Molas was the first in Sardinia and with its twenty-seven holes is the largest on the island.
The eighteen holes of the championship course have been created out of a collaboration between the Cotton, Pennink & Partners studio and Piero Mancinelli. The greens and bunkers are American in size and style, while the fairways are broad enough to forgive a slice. The Is Molas championship course is considered one of the most technically satisfying and spectacular courses not just in Italy, but in the whole of the Mediterranean area. It has staged many prestigious competitions, including four Italian Opens and a European Volvo Masters. The nine holes of the Yellow Course, the most difficult to play, have been laid out by Franco Piras, Gary Player Design's representative in Italy. The presence, along the course, of all the typical species of Sardinia's native flora and the Mediterranean macchia makes the Is Molas Golf Club a beautiful garden with a view of the sea.
The Club House is elegant and well-equipped: there is a bar with a panoramic terrace, a pro shop and the Ristorante Is Molas, open at lunchtime and for special occasions, which offers a creative Mediterranean cuisine based on local Sardinian products. It is possible to hire a cart, set of clubs and other equipment. Is Molas is also the seat of the Dan Williamson Academy, where golf lessons and courses can be booked.

South Sardinia, essence of the Mediterranean
History and nature from the sea to the woods, riches going back thousands of years. The clearest sea, the most intense transparencies, the whitest beaches. Southern Sardinia is filled with unique and unforgettable landscapes. From the lagoon to the reserve of Piscina Manna the triumph of nature is absolute. The Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans all discovered the beauty of this land. As a mark of their passage these noble civilizations left behind the city of Nora. The church of Sant'Efisio, constructed on the beach, plays an important part in the history of the local population.
The proximity of the sea and the shelter offered by the hills make South-west Sardinia an ideal region for agriculture and the production of food.
Bread, wine and oil are fruits of the nature and history of this magical land.
