Sun, sea and sand
Elivi Skiathos, the most high-end luxury hotel on the island of Skiathos, has new experiences for couples looking to plan a heavenly honeymoon or celebrate a special anniversary in 2021.
Perched on a verdant hilltop on a secluded part of the island, the hotel offers a picturesque backdrop nestled amongst pine trees and olive groves with direct access to four sandy beaches; its new experiences include private dinners on the beach, sunset cruises, private film screenings, and in-suite spa treatments.
Couples can set sail on a yacht from Koukounaries cove and take an evening dip in the waters by the romantic remote islands of Tsouggria or Arkos. Whilst out at sea, they will experience the unforgettable Skiathos sunset against the magical backdrop of the azure sea. Couples will be treated to an indulgent four course meal back on board, prepared by the captain for the ultimate fairy tale dinner date.
Private Beach Gazebo
Couples can enjoy an intimate candlelight dinner on the beautiful beaches of Ambelakia or Big Bannana, two of Skiathos's most stunning sandy shores under the privacy of their own gazebo. They will enjoy a bespoke menu tailored to their requirements with wine pairing options, and breath-taking views of the sun setting over the Aegean Sea.
