Style, exquisite service and unique experiences combine at this Corfiot waterfront haven.
When a hotel once belonged to the Onassis family and has long been the Corfu hotel of choice for royalty and the A-list, you know its going to exude sophistication. But theres no need to worry that it is stuck in a 1960s time warp the resort has been thoughtfully redefined and is well worthy of 21st-Century travellers. Clean lines, infinity pools and neutral hues accented by splashes of refreshing green and blues of the plants, olive trees and the Ionian Sea set the tone in this romantic, child-free environment. And then theres the food. Try fresh and locally sourced and inspired dishes from a menu devised by a Michelin-starred chef at the all-day eatery, Makris, or choose from the three degustation menus in a more intimate atmosphere in the evening. At Raw Bar, sushi is served alongside cocktails and a panoramic vista of the sea and at the Blue Bar you can follow in the footsteps of the former King of Greece this was the spot he used to host visiting dignitaries.
While the private beach and calm sea may keep your attention for the majority of your stay here, the rooms and suites provide a tranquil space to spend some of your time. The dcor is calming and subtle with a palette that doesnt stray too far from the white and natural shades. The Emerald Retreats and Suites are set within three two-storey buildings and you can opt for a room that overlooks the gardens or the sea. For an extra-special stay, theres the spacious Pavilion Retreats and Suites, some of which have their own private Jacuzzi, pool or even both. Haute Living Selection accommodation have a handful of added benefits such as access to the Haute Living Room where all-day refreshments are served, and an exclusive swimming pool.
