Grecotel Corfu Imperial
So impressive is the exclusive Corfu Imperial as a luxury holiday resort that it was awarded the coveted certificate of excellence by Trip Advisor in 2014. The five-star accommodation comprises palatial guest rooms in the main building; spacious bungalows in the gardens at the sea front and the waterfront; magnificent villas at the seafront, waterfront and with a beach view; and unique speciality suites at various locations. Additionally, there are six exceptionally luxurious suites described as ‘ultimate accommodation.’ Many of the buildings have private pools.
Surrounded by natural beauty, Corfu Imperial features beautiful Italianate gardens in which to wander, as well as private coves with three sandy beaches. The hotel has both an indoor and an outdoor pool. With superb sports and water sports facilities, the luxury resort also has accessible mooring for yachts.
Fine dining is well catered for, and choices include Mediterranean gourmet buffets at Mon Repos Restaurant, Corfu Island cuisine at Aristos Restaurant and a selection of excellent seafood at the Yali Restaurant, located on the seafront. For more casual fare, all-day dining is available at the Nafsika Poolside Restaurant.
Corfu Imperial also provides spa and hairdressing facilities, holiday shops and boutiques, and numerous bars and lounges. There is also plenty for families to enjoy; including holiday clubs activities and catering.
Corfu is very much the home of five-star holidays. An island hideaway in the Ionian Sea, the Corfu Imperial is situated on a private peninsula, making it ideal for quiet, restful breaks. The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and features some interesting buildings from the Venetian era. Museums and libraries are plentiful, and cultural festivals take place throughout the year.
Thanks to the hot summer Mediterranean climate, vineyards and olive groves adorn the island, where wine and olive oil is produced in abundance.
