Skiathos Palace Hotel

With two beaches nearby, a sea-view pool and a rooftop restaurant, the Skiathos Palace Hotel is as palatial as its name suggests.

The hotel is on a pine-covered cliff that overlooks the bay of Koukounaries. What’s more, two of the best sandy beaches in Skiathos sit either side of the hotel.

The pool is on a raised deck to make the most of the views, and surrounding the pool, you’ll find touches of luxury, like cushioned loungers, smart parasols and vine-clad pergolas.

Overview of Koukounaries

Skiathos may seem like a tiny island in the middle of the Aegean Sea, but a holiday here packs a lot in, and because the island is only 12 kilometres long everything is easy to get to.

Framed by ancient pine forests, the resort of Koukounaries is a tranquil retreat. With an incredible sunset that you can see from the deck of the Skiathos Palace Hotel, it really is an idyllic escape if you’re looking for rest and relaxation on your holiday to Skiathos.

Things to do in Skiathos

When you stay at the Skiathos Palace Hotel, you’re under 200 metres from both Maratha Beach and Koukounaries Beach, both family friendly.

Away from the beautiful beaches, mini markets, bars and restaurants are all within a 15-minute walk of the hotel. But Koukounaries has maintained its traditional Greek charm, so expect to find ouzo, moussaka and plenty of souvlaki.

If you’re looking for a day trip to the most exciting destination in Skiathos, head to Skiathos Town for cosmopolitan streets, fresh markets and historic sites.

For an authentic Greek holiday, Skiathos is the place for you. After you’ve visited this idyllic stretch of heaven, you’ll want to return time and time again.

Resort Summary

Koukounaries is named after the Greek word for pine cone, and it’s clear why from the hills around, which are absolutely brimming with firs. From Koukounaries you have easy access to the island’s capital, Skiathos Town, not to mention a truly breathtaking beach right on your doorstep. The resort curves slowly around to form a cove-like strip, complete with a small harbour where you can set sail around the island on your own personal vessel.
