Menel Hotel

The adults-only Menel Hotel is nicknamed ‘The Treehouse’ thanks to its eco-friendly credentials and wood-dominated decor.

There’s an earthy feel throughout the hotel. Bamboo canes decorate the balconies, while branch-style artwork lines the corridors. The rooms, meanwhile, feature stripped-back stone walls and modern, energy-efficient en suites.

In the morning, head to the breakfast room where there’s a continental buffet. After, go to the rooftop terrace where the wooden decking’s dotted with cushioned loungers and a hot tub. If you peer over the bamboo railings, you’ll have views of the Aegean Sea, too.

Overview of Limenaria

The quaint village of Limenaria is a large yet peaceful resort where you can see as far as the mainland when you sit in the port.

As it’s nestled in its own private valley, it’s in a secluded spot, so you’ll feel a million miles away from the stresses of modern life.

Limenaria is the second-largest resort on the island of Thassos, and its size means that it can cope with tourists without ever feeling overcrowded.

When you choose Limenaria and the Menel Hotel for your holiday to Thassos, you’ll enjoy traditional Greek culture, fresh cuisine and wide, sandy beaches.

Things to do in Limenaria

The location of the Menel Hotel means that you’re only a minute away from Limenaria’s main beach – a sandy strip backed by a smattering of bars and tavernas. For something off the beaten track, take a 10-minute walk to tucked-away Metalia Beach.

In the evening, there’s an excellent range of tavernas and restaurants that specialise in home cooked, traditional Greek food. For the best seafood dishes, head to the port.

With beautiful beaches, a lively port area and some of the best food in Greece, Limenaria is a place where you can unwind and enjoy a holiday in the sunshine.
