The Apollonion Resort & Spa is set in the countryside outside of Lixouri, so it’s really quiet. What’s more, it’s just five minutes’ walk from sandy Xi Beach.
Avant-garde sculptures spot the hotel and the bedrooms are all boutique chic. To top things off, TripAdvisor reviewers have named it the best hotel in Lixouri.
A big pool stretches through the gardens. Sunbeds surround the water, and there’s a collection of eateries nearby – including a couple of restaurants and a bar.
Xi Beach – Kefalonia’s famous stretch of red sand – is just a five-minute stroll away. Families are well-catered for here, thanks to the shallow waters and choice of watersports.
FOOD & DRINK
An al fresco taverna serving light meals sits at one end of the pool. Completing the food scene is a buffet restaurant with an international theme.
Monochrome furniture and framed pop art accessorise the poolside cocktail bar.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
A tennis court and games room are stowed away among the spacious grounds. There’s also a modern art gallery showcasing sculptures and paintings.
Film nights go al fresco, thanks to an outdoor cinema that has a permanent place in the hotel grounds.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
Spa* treatments cover everything from essential oils massages to steam baths. There’s also a fitness centre with a full line-up of cardiovascular machines.
