A hidden pearl on top of a hill

Nestled discreetly on top of a pine-forested hill you’ll discover the brand new Marbella Elix. A breathtakingly beautiful all-inclusive 5 star hotel featuring four restaurants from fine dining to family-pleasing delicious buffets. As well as three bars and a shared lounge.

This beautiful hotel and its fantastic views over to the islands of Paxos, Antipaxos, and Corfu keeps taking my breath away – looking at the photos don’t do it’s justice as this place must be seen and experienced in person.

The stunning beach of Karavostasi is stretching out below the hotel and is a short walk down a tree-lined path, or you can take the funicular railway if preferable or when you’re with a child like us.

Marbella Elix is located approx. 22km from Parga and 82km from Aktion airport. It took us about 1,5 hour to reach the airport. The hotel is kids-friendly and offers a huge amount of activities for all ages. You have hiking, biking, sailing, snorkeling and kayaking just to mention a few.

If you play tennis there’s a tennis court on site. There’s also a basketball court there and table tennis. For the littlest guests there’s a playground with a slide and swing on site.

The property has 146 rooms all together and offers an outdoor infinity swimming pool, kiddie pool, a well-equipped gym and evening entertainment. There’s also a day care on site for those who want leave their kids with supervision.

Like I mentioned in the beginning of this article, there are several restaurants on site.

Saffron is a great choice for casual all day buffet dining – this is also where they serve breakfast. I’ve been to many buffets in my life and must say that Saffron is one of the best! I’m not a vegetarian but I became one every morning because of their great selection of healthy food. And their dessert.. Oh my, so good!

Pearl is an à la carte restaurant with a selection of exquisite dishes inspired by Greek culinary heritage. I was impressed buy how delicious their dishes were.

Indigo offers lunch, healthy snacks and salads. After sunset Indigo transforms into an Italian restaurant serving Italian classics. 

Azure is an à la carte beach restaurant serving mouth watering dishes. You need to try their pizza margarita!

Double room with panoramic
view of the Ionian Sea

Our 28 square meter air-conditioned room was located on the ground floor with an overlooking view of the sea. We had a big balcony with chairs and a table, it was the perfect place to sit and get a tan while watching Velina play in her kiddie pool that we brought with us.

Our room was also equipped with a flatscreen tv, coffee and tea making facilities and a small refrigerator. As well as a working desk, huge closet, a sitting area and a bathroom with a shower. It’s also equipped with a hairdryer and free toiletries. A cot and a baby tub is available upon request.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article. For more photos or videos of our stay you can check out “Parga” under highlight on my instagram account @stephanielouvelle
