The poolside Elia Buffet Restaurant is considered the “crown jewel” of the Island Blue, the newest of the Ioannidis Hotels and Resorts complex in the quiet village of Pefkos.
The restaurant combines modern Greek dining with twists of international cuisine and features a Greek-themed evening. There are regular music and other entertainment around the pool – and you can do more than just sit back and enjoy it if you show off your singing voice on karaoke nights.
There’s a second pool, the Almira, with accompanying bars, and a nearby sandy Blue Flag beach and, at the neighbouring Lindia Thalassa hotel, a children’s pool, as well as a kids’ club with indoor games and a playground, to ensure fun for all the family.
The comfortable accommodation includes 34 self-catering apartments and 52 guest rooms, all bright, airy and modern with a pool view and either a balcony or terrace. There are king-size beds, satellite TV, free wifi and air conditioning. Family apartments have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchenette with kettle, toaster, fridge and other equipment.
For complete relaxation, you can luxuriate in the Zen Island spa – there’s a Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, and individual and couples massages, as well as facials and hair, nail and make-up salons. Qualified therapists and smooth music complete a relaxing experience.
At the Lindia Thalassa there’s also a supermarket with British and Greek products, and ready-made packs of essentials.
