Apostolata Island Resort and Spa
Natural products for pampering create an atmosphere of infinite relaxation at the Apostolata Island Resort & Spa, on a hillside with panoramic sea views.
The infinity pool really does seem to go on forever with its own breathtaking views of the sea at the Apostolata Island Resort & Spa, in Skala, Kefalonia.
On a hillside which slopes gently to the sea, offering a wonderful panorama, the hotel has superb accommodation, complemented by a spa where guests can luxuriate in rejuvenating therapies and pure pampering.
The spa treatments feature natural and organic skin and body care products from Australian brand LI’TYA, based on Aboriginal medicines and created from plants, flowers and fruits, Tasmanian sea kelp, mother of pearl and essential oils, with services including massage, body and facial therapies, sauna, hammam, manicure and pedicure, and a Jacuzzi. There is also a gym and tennis courts.
Recommended as an ideal hotel for guests of all ages, the Apostolata Island has a children's seawater pool, a playground, and a club for ages four to 12, as well as providing high chairs and baby cots.
Just four kilometres from the charming resort of Skala, where there are excellent amenities and a vast stretch of sand and shingle beach with sparkling, turquoise waters, the resort is also close to nesting grounds of loggerhead sea turtles. While guests can take advantage of a complimentary bus service to Poros, hiring a car can help in the exploration of the beautiful surrounding area.
The hotel’s excellent restaurants and bars offer Greek and international cuisine, including Italian and Asian, with show cooking and theme nights and a health corner, and the live evening entertainments also feature Greek, Ionian and Italian themes.
The comfortable rooms all have air conditioning, satellite TV, a telephone, toiletries, direct-dial telephone, a mini refrigerator and a balcony or terrace.
