Living the high life in Halkidiki
Halkidiki might not be your run-of-the-mill luxury destination, but that just keeps the crowds away. Those familiar with this three-pronged holiday spot are well in touch with its glamorous potential, especially in Sani, the region’s luxury hotspot. This resort is known particularly for its spa hotels and yacht-lined marina. Here, you can shop at high end designer boutiques by day and dine at Michelin-rated restaurants by night.
Nea Moudania adds the biggest shopping centre in Halkidiki to the mix, plus DJ-lead bars and clubs that keep you close to the bustling marina. Over in Ouranoupolis, activities are generally geared toward tanning along the beach, or embarking on boat cruises through the peaceful harbour – you can even charter a private boat for that extra tinge of luxury.
Halkidiki brings you quiet holidays with a golden edge
Flights from the UK to Halkidiki will put you in the air for around three and a half hours.
Holidays to Halkidiki might take you onto mainland Greece, but these quiet shores still feel far enough away to return you to the real world fully rested. That’s due mainly in part to the peaceful white sand beaches, beautiful marinas and the upscale resorts overlooking the sea with all the elegance and stylishness characteristic of the Mediterranean.
Sani is renowned across Halkidiki as a starlet resort, boasting a glitzy coastline and Blue Flag beach, while Nea Moudania is a little more mainstream with its popular waterfront and nightlife scene. For holidays of the more comatose variety, there’s the supremely laid-back Ouranoupolis, a quiet fishing village that acts as a gateway to the exclusive Mount Athos and its monastery.
The Ikos Oceania Club is awash in cool beige and greys, emanating the kind of upscale vibes you might expect from a 5* property on its own private beach. On offer here are a heap of sea-facing pools, plus four a la carte restaurants and a buffet spot. In the ways of wellness, you'll have a fitness studio, sauna and Hammam. Daytime here brings Greek and cooking lessons, among others, while evenings are reserved for live entertainment, films and cocktail parties.
Set in lush gardens that overlook the beach, the Eagles Palace exudes Caribbean vibes with pops of orange dotted around the decor. It might be a little on the smaller side, but it boasts all the trimmings of a big time hotel, featuring four restaurants, a beach and pool bar, the Eagles Spa with luxury wellness treatments, wine tasting events and a cocktail club, not to mention access to a nearby private beach.
With stylish interiors and a sleek pool scene, this 5* hotel is heavy on the upscale vibes. Stashed up against the beach, the Ikos Olivia boasts five restaurants – including a buffet and four a la carte spots – and an incredible five bars. In the way of entertainment, you've got two pools, private boat trips, cooking and dancing lessons and a swish spa for a bevy of treatments. That's if you leave your room – each comes with a Nespresso machine and deluxe bathroom treats.
