A visit to Corfu is not complete without entering the private world of Kommeno peninsula. This summer, Grecotel resorts Corfu Imperial and LUX ME Daphnila Bay Dassia have been remastered to present the best of Greek hospitality.
Grecotel Corfu Imperial Reimagines Supreme Luxury
With the remodelling of the property and the addition of many amenities, Grecotel Corfu Imperial redefines royal indulgence. An air of grandeur flows into its marble-lined public rooms, framed with fine antiques and oil paintings. Wooden terraces invite you to sink into a sun lounger with a book and cappuccino in hand. Nostalgic vibes and gorgeous sea vistas reflect the spirit of a Venetian Corfu town.
Surrounded by cypress trees and olive groves, the hotel is located on a private peninsula with sweeping views of the Ionian Sea. As well as mountainous backdrops, you will find a sequence of golden beaches, sandy coves and secret bays.
Of course, you never have to leave the comfort of the resort to cool off. Several villas have their own freshwater pool, and a new grand pool has been built for everyone to enjoy. But swimming opportunities don’t end there as guests can enjoy all sorts of watersports.
New in 2018
Grecotel Corfu Imperial gets even better with Il Boschetto, the luxurious family accommodation collection. Kids will love the Grecoland Kids Club, full of crafts, activities and entertainment. The Tasty Corner serves juniors a constant supply of fresh and healthy buffet food. And it’s all for free! Families can also taste gelato and cucina romana while strolling on candle-lit paths to the summer boutiques. Every boutique is filled with island antiques and local finds.
Another new feature is the impressive Elixir Spa, doubling in size as it turns from one-storey into two. The spa offers specialized treatments with Omorovicza, internationally-renowned cosmetics that are exclusive to Greece. All of the facilities that guests desire are here, including a sauna, hammam, indoor pool and state-of-the-art gym.
And big news for the world of dining is Michelin-starred chef Thanos Feskos’s award-winning menu at Aristos, transformed from Italian to French cuisine. As well as having one of the most splendid menus in Greece, the restaurant’s outstanding service and beautiful setting provide a dreamy dining experience.
Dine Around Concept
If the hotel’s 15 lavish seafront restaurants weren’t enough, guests can now book at all three Grecotel properties in Corfu. The cuisine options are vast with the Dine Around concept. Take your pick from Steak & Sushi at Grecotel Eva Palace to Tavernaki at Grecotel LUX ME Daphnila Bay Dassia. 26 restaurants and bars in total connect places, people and tastes. Guests are welcome in all Grecotel restaurants across the private word of Kommeno peninsula.
Getting from one resort to another is seamless. Luxury pontoon boats are an original mode of transport and offer magnificent views of the peninsula. The luxury platform boats run between Grecotel Corfu Imperial and Grecotel LUX ME Daphnila Bay Dassia every 40 minutes.
SPECIAL OFFER: Book online from £250 per night including breakfast in a Deluxe Guestroom Sea View. Or book with TUI UK to get exclusive rates from £414 pp based on three nights for two people sharing including flights.
