Between Greece's exotic islands there's remarkable diversity. One thing remains the same, however: there are luxury hotels everywhere. Here are 6 of the best throughout Crete, Corfu and Santorini...
Stella Island Luxury Resort & Spa, Crete
Stella Island Luxury Resort is class personified. With lagoon-style pool areas and an abundance of spa facilities, the Analipsi-located adults-only hotel is perfect for couples looking for a therapeutic escape. The 5* hotel also includes sports facilities like tennis and football courts, access to a private beach and has four à la carte restaurants (including buffet breakfast). Luxury rooms come with views across the lagoon pool and a balcony.
Dimitra Beach Resort Hotel, Kos
Set on the Agios Fakos beachfront on Kos Island, the hotel, which was built in 1970, was recently renovated to chic modern design, whilst still remaining iconically Greek in its white-coated perfection. There are deluxe bungalows with garden or sea views, beachfront bungalows and deluxe family suites (some with balconies), and all rooms have stunning views across the Med. The terrace and pool area is the ideal place to lay back, forget all your troubles and basque in the Greek sunshine.
Fodele Beach & Water Park Holiday Resort, Crete
The beachfront Fodele Beach & Water Park hotel is one of the best family-friendly hotels in Crete. The beachfront resort has a renaissance-esque grandeur to it and an almost utopianlaid-back ambience. The resort, flattered with stunning views across the Ionian Sea, also has a substantial family-friendly waterpark, where waterslides stretch across the width of the resort. Bungalow-style rooms emerge from beyond the incomparably beautiful gardens of the resort.
San Antonio, Santorini
The San Antonio in Santorini enjoys a wondrous location, built within a cliffside overlooking the volcanic Caldera sea landscape. There's a large balcony home to an infinity pool, as dramatic a swimming pool you're likely to find. There's also the Cliffside Dinner Restaurant serving delicious local wines, along with Greek gastronomic pleasure. Built within a cave, you'll find a luxury spa facility which can be booked for hour-long sessions. Bedroom suites are romantically decorated, some even have spa baths, and many of the rooms come with stunning sea views.
Creta Maris Beach Resort, Crete
The Creta Maris in Crete is a luxurious beachfront resort in Hersonissos. The resort's design is inspired by traditional Greek-village aesthetics, with whitewashed buildings and quaintly pastoral rooms. The all inclusive facilities are world class - there are 7 restaurants and 7 bars across the resort, serving Greek, local and Italian cuisine. The pool scene is equally as impressive, with 12 outdoor pools (including 6 freshwater children's pools), an aqua park and an indoor pool and spa.
Kontokali Bay Resort & Spa, Corfu
Kontokali Bay Resort's beachfront location is one of the main highlights ofthe Corfu hotel. The views across the Ionian Sea are striking, and can best be enjoyed on the terrace area, accompanied by a fresh Greek breakfast.
