Ikos Olivia, Halkidiki
It’s hard to find a luxury All-Inclusive that delivers more than Ikos Olivia. Positioned on a glorious sandy beach, with multiple pools (one with a swim-up bar for cocktails and slushies) and extensive delicious dining options, the Olivia caters for everyone – families, couples or friends travelling together. Almost step free through the resort, it’s a good choice for multi-generational families where mobility is an issue. Choose to stay in the main hotel building or in apartment style bungalows, some with their own pool, set in beautiful gardens.
Also appealing is the short flight time to Thessaloniki (around 3 hours) and the 45 minute private transfer. Attention to detail throughout the resort is impeccable, the on-site medical centre is reassuring and as for the Anne Semonin Spa, well, it’s just bliss!!
Another Savile Row Travel firm favourite is the excellent value also All-Inclusive MarBella Corfu. Situated on on Corfu’s beautiful south-east coast and close to Corfu Old Town and airport, it boasts a gorgeous beachside setting and elegantly landscaped gardens with magnificent views over the shimmering Ionian Sea.
Children will love the Kids Club activities, run to UK standards of childcare, while parents can relax and take some much needed time to themselves.
Eagles Villas, Halkidiki
For those looking for more independence, Eagles Villas on the Eagles Palace Resort in Halkidiki is a wonderfully stylish choice. Again, great for families, this beautiful resort is the epitomé of luxury, freedom, exclusivity, and privacy under the glittering Mediterranean sun.
Relax in elegant accommodation with magnificent sea views over a golden sandy beach with tranquil turquoise waters. Enjoy a mouth-watering variety of awarded restaurants and perhaps even venture out to explore the surrounding area of Halkidiki.
Quite possibly the most iconic of all the Greek Islands with its stunning white-washed walls, azure blue skies and old world charm, Santorini is a mecca for couples looking to switch off from real life and indulge in some me-time. Katikies is renowned for its unparalleled services, warm atmosphere and sense of romance as one of the best luxury hotels in Santorini.
Elegant, soothing living and sleeping areas feature bedrooms in lofty upper levels in certain suites, whilst sensational private terraces offer Caldera and sea views. This is a small-child-free hotel, with only children 13ys+ allowed.
Amanzoe, Porto Heli
Overlooking the Aegean on an isolated hilltop, Amanzoe has 270-degree views of the Aegean Sea and the Peloponnese countryside. Amanzoe’s private beach and Beach Club lie below the hilltop resort overlooking a sheltered bay. Complimentary transfers take guests down to the Aegean, where non-motorised watersports can be enjoyed and guests can depart on island-hopping day trips. Family and adults-only pool areas maintain the serenity of this stunning resort where no request is too great and no detail too small.
Wake up to the sound of the waves in a one-bedroom Beach Cabanas. Set directly on the beach alongside the Beach Club, the Cabanas provide elegant luxury with terrace, private garden and a 9.5-metre private swimming pool with direct beach access.
Milos Breeze Boutique Hotel, Milos
Built on an exclusive and quiet spot on a striking clifftop, the Milos Breeze Boutique Hotel offers uninterrupted panoramic views of the sea and nearby islands from the balcony of each room. This hotel is something of a hidden gem with a quiet elegance and style.
Away from the main tourist trail, Milos is an island to explore with picturesque villages and lunar landscape beaches with crystal clear turquoise waters. Milos is popular with couples, although the numerous caves, mysterious catacombs, and emerald Milos beaches have enough charm to bewitch any traveller.
