Each year, Greece’s natural beauty attracts visitors who are drawn to the clear Mediterranean Sea and sunset views. Swim in Mykonos’s turquoise bays or sunbathe in a quaint cottage on Corfu’s cliffside at these Greek hotels, primed for your next beach holiday. Here’s where to stay in Greece for a beautiful experience, bookable with Culture Trip.
Pine-covered hills, white-sand beaches and serene bays are part of the country’s charm, with beautiful hotels in Greece dotted across the mainland and islands. A fair word of caution, though: the following images may cause a sudden urge to jump on the next flight to Greece.
Splendour awaits you at the glistening whitewashed Adronis Luxury Suites, overlooking the sky-blue Aegean Sea. The hotel boasts exceptional experiences, such as a half-day yacht cruise, private wine tasting on a hilltop and shopping in Mykonos via helicopter. Dine at the dramatic clifftop Lycabettus, with its award-winning chef, or take in a treatment at the Mare Sanus Spa. Each elegant suite and villa has a private infinity pool, plunge pool or jacuzzi.
Escape to the Elounda Beach Hotel and Villas on the island of Crete. It offers a range of accommodation options in five categories, from the luxurious to the “future of luxury”. Its dining scene is diverse, with six restaurants and four bars. Relax on the secluded beach and around the seawater pool, treat yourself to a spa session, or partake in one of the many water sports.
The all-inclusive Ikos Dassia flows through expansive gardens and a 600m (1,969ft) white-sand private beach, and its tranquil rooms, suites and villas offer beach views. Splurge on a deluxe junior suite on the beachfront to take advantage of the private pool and terrace. The resort houses six restaurants with menus created by Michelin-star chefs, or you can take advantage of the innovative Dine Out Programme and eat at a local restaurant for no extra cost.
The award-winning Romanos is surrounded by beautiful gardens, olive groves and unbelievable views of the Ionian Sea. With a focus on sustainability, you can take part in experiences such as traditional grape harvesting and olive picking or visit the town of Pylos for a cooking class with the local women. There’s no shortage of dining options with 14 diverse restaurants, lounges and bars.
Near the ancient acropolis of Rhodes, Melenos Lindos Hotel is a picture-perfect accommodation option, three minutes from Lindos Beach. The hotel blends antiques and archaeological artefacts collected by the hotel owner with stunning surrounds to create a unique setting. The 12 suites branch off from the main building, creating a village-like feel. Enjoy the sunset from the colourful canopied rooftop restaurant.
