NA­TURE’S HAVEN

Un­par­al­leled hos­pi­tal­ity at Kon­tokali Bay Re­sort & Spa

Porthole Cruise Magazine - - The Insider - BY CHANEL SAMSON

When Odysseus’ ship washed up on the idyl­lic shores of Corfu, Homer’s hero was re­stored back to health by the Phaea­cians, send­ing him safely home af­ter his 20-year voy­age. Come to the is­land to­day and find the same sense of warm hos­pi­tal­ity and re­newal at Kon­tokali Bay Re­sort & Spa. The cozy sanc­tu­ary sits on an in­clin­ing penin­sula over­look­ing the Io­nian Sea, cel­e­brat­ing na­ture’s beauty along with lux­ury and Corfu’s dis­tinct land­scape. Whether you choose to over­look lush gar­dens, green hill­sides, or cobalt hori­zons, all of the re­sort’s ac­com­mo­da­tions boast earthy tones and dis­creet lux­ury with a com­pli­men­tary bot­tle of fine wine to match!

Sat­isfy your pur­suit for Greek au­then­tic­ity at one of the re­sort’s gas­tro­nomic of­fer­ings. All meals are pre­pared from lo­cally sourced in­gre­di­ents so be it a clas­sic meze-style lunch at Paréa by the beach or a sump­tu­ous reimag­in­ing of tra­di­tional Greek fare at As­te­rias à la carte restau­rant, the ex­pe­ri­ence is one you can only find here.

The cobalt depths of the Io­nian Sea ap­pear lighter, more azure when you stand on the shore­line. Take in the nat­u­ral Gre­cian beauty that sur­rounds you un­der a pris­tine white um­brella or gaze upon the same view from the in­fin­ity pool on the sun ter­race. The more ad­ven­tur­ously in­clined will en­joy the re­sort’s daily ac­tiv­i­ties pro­gram from hik­ing to a

sir­taki dance les­son.

The Greek virtue of Philox­e­nia is to du­ti­fully of­fer hos­pi­tal­ity to a guest and it would seem to have en­dured his­tory and mythol­ogy, for you will find it here at Kon­tokali Bay Re­sort & Spa. kon­tokalibay.gr
