Five stars? Check. Incomparable Greek hospitality? Check. Unparalleled luxury? Check. The MarBella Collection is hotel elegance at its finest, with three extraordinary hotels in three incredible locations. Let us introduce you to the latest addition, the MarBella Elix. A destination where the mountains meet the ocean and guests are invited to marvel at views of the pristine landscape, this gorgeous property is set to open its doors on 20th May 2021 for a long-awaited reveal that’s positive to set the luxury hotel scene on fire. Families, couples and everyone in between are welcomed with open arms at MarBella Elix, which is located in the Sivota area on Greece’s beautiful Ionian coast, so close to the illuminating waters you’ll feel as if you can reach out and touch it. From mouth-watering gastronomy to amazing activities in abundance, magical moments at MarBella Elix are guaranteed from the moment you step through the front doors…

Sensational Sivota

Utterly underrated and beautifully unspoiled, Sivota is a glorious traditional Greek town in a sheltered bay that is sandwiched between tree-covered hills and the sparkling Ionian Sea. The rugged, twisted coastline is home to long and sandy beaches, including some that can only be reached by boat for a secluded day out surrounded by natural beauty. Speaking of natural beauty, Sivota is also home to the Riviera of Epirus, a gorgeous region of mountains, forests, picturesque villages, rivers and a fascinating history that goes back to ancient times and beyond. MarBella Elix fits comfortably into the pristine scenery, perched discreetly on top of a pine-forested hill to command spine-tingling views to the islands of Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu, overlooking the white sands of Karavostasi beach for an added touch of tranquillity.

Sivota provides the perfect backdrop to the luxury, beginning with the gorgeous Karavostasi beach

Oh, you’re probably wondering how to get from Sivota from the UK, but we’ve got you covered. You can either fly to Preveza Airport on the Grecian mainland or fly to the nearby island of Corfu. From Preveza, it takes roughly 90 minutes by car to reach the area, and options for taxi transfers or car hire are offered by Olympic. Alternatively, from Corfu, you can take a taxi to the harbour and catch a ferry to Igoumenitsa and take a taxi to MarBella Elix from there. The ferry journey takes just under two hours but trust us, it’s worth every second.

Immerse yourself in culinary heaven

We hope you packed your appetite! Discover a world of culinary wonders at MarBella Elix, boasting an inspiring selection of traditional flavours and international favourites across the five on-site restaurants and bars, each one catering for the discerning palate and offering friendly and efficient service to transform mealtimes into delightful experiences. Indulge in the buffet at the all-day dining Saffron Restaurant with your family, but if you’re in the mood for some quality one-on-one time, Pearl Restaurant is where you should head. Delicious á la carte Mediterranean dishes are partnered with dazzling sea views, all accompanied by a perfectly curated selection of wines for a dinner you’ll remember for years to come. For delectable options throughout the day, the Azure Beach Restaurant & Bar and the Indigo Pool Restaurant & Bar are brilliant for satisfying your hunger and curbing your thirst during relaxing days by the water. Oh, and don’t leave the resort without a trip to the Ruby Bar for a drink on the terrace at sunset – the panoramic views will have you convinced that this is what dreams are made of.
