A guide to Best Hotels in Skala
Popular with both Greek and international holidaymakers, Skala is the largest resort in southern Kefalonia. It has less than 500 permanent residents so large number of the buildings are hotels. As the resort was rebuilt in the fifties after being destroyed by an earthquake, there is a variety of modern accommodation to choose from for your holidays in Kefalonia. Pleasingly, all of the hotels are walking distance to Skala’s beautiful Blue Flag beach. Start planning your Greek island holiday in the sun with help from our handy hotel guide.
Anassa Hotel occupies an envious location on the famous Skala beach and just 300 metres from the town centre. The well-equipped studio rooms are modern and clean with the whole place having a homely feel you just don’t find in larger resorts. The pool has uninterrupted views out to sea which guests can enjoy over a cocktail from the poolside bar.
Set among the pine trees and olive groves at the top end of Skala, rest the Andreas Studios and Apartments. The friendly owners treat their guests like they would treat friends in their home, and group barbecues and happy hours are common place. You can admire the sea view from the hotel, with the beach 650 metres downhill and the resort centre just a three-minute walk away.
Situated on the main coastal road to Skala, Asteris occupies a large area with multiple small accommodation blocks, public areas, gardens and a pool.

The apartments are stocked with all you need for a Self Catering holiday, with the village amenities and beach just four kilometres away and accessible by bus.
Set in a peaceful area on the hillside outside Skala, the Crystal Palace Resort makes the most of its elevated position with terrace seating overlooking the deep blue ocean. The spacious rooms have a traditional Greek feel, with some looking out on to the pool. You can walk to the beach in five minutes and the shops and restaurants of the village centre aren’t much further.
A peaceful retreat yet close to the village centre, the pretty Dionysios Apartments look traditionally Greek with shutter windows and spacious balconies. The rooms are furnished simply but have a kitchenette. Guests have local tavernas and restaurants on their doorstep, and the beach is only 350 metres away.
If you want easy access to the beach coupled with semi-rural charm to have your dream holiday to Greece, Eleana Studios is the hotel for you.
