Eliamos Villas, a captivating boutique hotel, has recently unveiled its doors on the picturesque southern shores of Kefalonia, a Greek island renowned for its beauty. This exclusive retreat, named Eliamos Villas Hotel & Spa, is the brainchild of Maike Gruna Interiors, a London-based design firm. From LUSH, we congratulate such a great concept, perfectly alligned with local culture, environment and, of course, offering an outstanding level of service.
A Harmonious Blend of Sustainability and Design
Nestled above a secluded cove within its own private estate, Eliamos Villas Hotel & Spa offers an array of lavish amenities, including a locally inspired restaurant, a rejuvenating spa, an outdoor gym, and a range of nature-based activities. The hotel’s design harmoniously reflects the unspoiled landscapes of Kefalonia while seamlessly integrating luxurious elements with contemporary elegance.
An unwavering commitment to sustainability lies at the heart of this property’s design and operations. Local building materials have been utilized, and a firm dedication to minimizing single-use plastics is evident, with plans to eventually become entirely plastic-free. Guests are provided with Eliamos reusable water bottles as part of the hotel’s initial sustainability initiatives. Furthermore, water waste is repurposed to nourish the gardens, and the restaurant proudly sources its produce from nearby farmers and suppliers.
Immersed in Nature’s Embrace
This brand-new hotel features twelve exquisite villas, each boasting one, two, or three bedrooms. Every villa offers a private saltwater pool or hot tub, a fully equipped kitchen, an outdoor dining area, a barbecue, and a serene terrace. The design of each villa aims to immerse guests in the island’s natural splendor, providing breathtaking views of the sea or the surrounding olive groves.
The wellness concept at Eliamos Villas revolves around embracing nature. The outdoor gym, facing the sea, presents wooden Pilates reformers and state-of-the-art exercise equipment, including a Nohrd rower and bike. An expansive infinity saltwater pool invites guests to unwind and rejuvenate amidst tranquil surroundings. The on-site spa offers indulgent massages, reflexology, aromatherapy treatments, pilates, yoga, and fitness sessions.
Culinary Delights and Engaging Activities
Under the expert guidance of Chef Socrates Malinganis, the hotel’s restaurant is a culinary haven that showcases the finest ingredients from local farmers and organic producers. Guests can savor Mediterranean cuisine, including delectable dishes that are unique to the island, creating a delightful culinary journey.
Eliamos Villas encourages guests to immerse themselves in the island’s natural wonders. Activities range from invigorating hikes and scenic cycling tours to enchanting stargazing experiences, wine tastings, and captivating boat trips to neighboring islands. Each endeavor offers an opportunity to forge a deeper connection with the captivating surroundings.
