Romance On Cards At Greek Luxury Hotel

One of the most high-end luxury hotels on the Greek island of Skiathos, has launched new experiences for couples looking to plan a heavenly honeymoon or celebrate a special anniversary in 2021.

Ahead of its season opening on 7th May 2021, the Elvi Skiathos has packaged a range of treats from private dinners on the beach to sunset cruises, private film screenings, and in-suite spa treatments.

Perched on a verdant hilltop on a secluded part of the island, the hotel offers a picturesque backdrop nestled amongst pine trees and olive groves with direct access to four sandy beaches.

Sunset Cruise
Couples can set sail on a yacht from Koukounaries cove and take an evening dip in the waters by the romantic remote islands of Tsouggria or Arkos. Whilst out at sea, they will experience the unforgettable Skiathos sunset against the magical backdrop of the azure sea. Couples will be treated to an indulgent four course meal back on board, prepared by the captain for the ultimate fairy tale dinner date.

Private Beach Gazebo
Couples can enjoy an intimate candlelight dinner on the beautiful beaches of Ambelakia or Big Banana, two of Skiathos’s most stunning sandy shores under the privacy of their own gazebo. They will enjoy a bespoke menu tailored to their requirements with wine pairing options, and breath-taking views of the sun setting over the Aegean Sea.

In-suite Experiences
Newlyweds staying in the Nest Suite or the Swan Villa can relax in privacy with a range of in-suite experiences. After a day exploring the hotel’s surrounding nature trails and the hidden gems of Skiathos island, newlyweds can unwind with a choice of in-suite spa treatments or spend an evening under the stars with a private film screening set up at the GRACE kiosk upon special request, complete with bubbles and canapés.

The two-bedroom Nest Suite offers direct access to Big Banana Beach well-known for being one of the best locations to watch the Skiathos sunset and comes with its own private pool, perfect for soaking up the views whilst taking a refreshing dip.

Spread across 213 acres, ELIVI SKIATHOS is tucked away in an area of natural beauty on the southwest of the island beside a wildlife refuge and with direct access to four of the island’s best beaches.
