A guide to Best Hotels in Kalamaki

The tranquil, white sand resort of Kalamaki on the island of Zante is the perfect place to slow down and relax for your Greece holidays. Popular with families, the area boasts some excellent hotels featuring play areas, kids’ pools and kids’ clubs. It’s not all for the little ones though – you’ll also find a handful of chic, luxury resorts with stunning views and elegant interiors.

Hotel Roseland

Just steps from the beach and minutes from the main strip sits this 3* family-run hotel. Offering a childrens’ play area, large gardens and a separate kids’ pool, this charming hotel is perfect for families with small children, and each room comes with a private sun terrace.

Hotel Exotica

A four-minute walk from the white sand beach, Hotel Exotica is set in idyllic grounds close to the town centre, with a host of shops and tavernas right on your doorstep. Boasting a large swimming pool surrounded by sun beds, the terracotta-topped building blocks are separated by immaculate lawns and shrub-lined pathways. Holidays to Zante don’t get much better than this.

Bitzaro Palace Hotel

The Bitzaro Palace Hotel is bursting with Greek Charm and all rooms are elegantly decorated with views of the gardens and wooden decked pool area. If you’re looking for All Inclusive holidays to Zante then look no further, as this venue offers a delicious Mediterranean buffet where you can enjoy the rich flavours of Greek cuisine, and is only a five-minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the main Kalamaki strip.

Hotel Marelen

Offering a full programme of daytime and evening entertainment you could very easily not leave the serene grounds of the Hotel Marelen. On site you’ll find three swimming pools with a separate area with waterslides for the kids, and just outside you’ll find local tavernas and the gorgeous Ionian sea.

Caretta Beach Aparthotel

The Caretta Beach Aparthotel is a big hit with families and, with an on-site water park and kids’ club, it’s not hard to see why. Spanning nine different blocks with either studio, one- or two-bedroom apartments, the hotel still manages to maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere despite its size. With facilities like a supermarket on the grounds, you’ll have everything you need right on your doorstep.

Louros Beach

With wrought-iron balconies wrapped in flowers, landscaped gardens dotted with rose bushes and beautifully crafted topiary trees, the Louros Beach Hotel and Spa won’t fail to impress you. Choose between a spacious standard room or an elegantly furnished suite, both of which come with a private balcony with views of the picturesque gardens.

Garden Village

These small, traditional-style apartments sit neatly around a spotless pool in flower-filled gardens and come fitted with air conditioning, a kitchenette and balcony. The poolside bar offers homemade Greek food and a selection of delicious drinks which can be enjoyed on a sun lounger in the shade. It is located only a short walk from the beach.
