Perched on the sandy, picturesque bay of tranquil Sithonia, the Anthemus Sea Hotel & Spa offers bright and stylish comfort. A peaceful respite with a beachside location for stressed-out sun-seekers, it’s undertaken an elegant renovation ready for the new season.
The options for guests are limitless, with 202 sleek rooms, from the standard yet still luxurious spaces to the range of decadent suites. Junior suites boast balconies with vast, breathtaking views, while deluxe suites hold bright sitting rooms that make you feel at home. But if basking in the Grecian sun is of prime importance to you, the Wellness Suites each boast private pools and ground floor access to the beach; perfect for those who want to make the most of Halkidiki’s shores, a quick, pre-breakfast paddle is mere seconds within guests’ reach.
Also within close reach is a convenient line-up of four new shops, from a photo shop to three glamorous boutiques where you can really treat yourself. Perfect for those who misplaced their swimsuit in the midst of frantic packing, you can pick yourself up a new bikini (or three) without leaving the resort.
Little ones will love splashing around in the hotel’s three large pools, or taking to the beach where you can recline on comfy loungers. And taking a dip is never out of bounds throughout the season, as the use of the indoor heated pool for free on the cooler days of the year.
Dinnertime is an utter joy with a range of restaurants at hand, from newly-refurbished buffet, Elia, to the delicious seafood tavern, Yialos. But if you seek sunsets and views whilst enjoying traditional Greek gourmet, the Horizon Roof Gardens are the perfect spot for a little al fresco dining. The brand new Dine-Around program makes this even easier to enjoy, with set menus for half-board guests in each of the restaurants.
The hotel even has evenings sussed with drinks at the Ammos Beach Bar, and a line-up of can’t-miss entertainment waits inside the auditorium. Live music and dancing demonstrations are sure to exhilarate and if you want to witness the local nightlife there’s plenty to explore within easy reach.
Luxury is found in every corner of this five-star property, where the award-winning spa is home to exotic treatments with a mindful, holistic focus. Approaching techniques from Bali, Indonesia, India, China and Thailand, the spa’s dedication to ancient rituals is a treat for body and mind.
