Ekies All Senses Resort: The Resort by the Sea
Looking more like a charming fortress rather than just another hotel, Ekies All Senses is perched precariously atop a rock kissing the edge of the Vourvourou Bay in Sithonia in Greece. At first glance, it’s also more like a dreamlike castle by the sea, fortified and unconquerable. One can almost be disappointed upon learning it is actually a modern-day hotel. Behind the hotel is the magnificent Mount Athos, dominating the skyline. The crystal clear blue waters of the Vourvourou Bay in the front, the Ekies All Senses in the middle and the green pine mountain behind, one is almost guaranteed a stay soaked in nature while enjoying modern conveniences.
Ekies All Senses is only three steps away from the sea, an almost enviable situation. Sea lovers and beachcombers will definitely be drawn to this hotel. Kissing the Vourvourou Bay on the untouched beach in Sithonia (one of the three peninsulas of Halkidiki), the Resort is blessed with rocky islands, caves, crystal waters, sandy beaches, and pine tree forests all around. Ekies All Senses Resort is truly an excellent getaway for those seeking to immerse themselves fully in nature.
Designed by its owner Alexandra Efstathiadou, Ekies All Senses was once a hotel in tatters. But rescued and restored with careful planning and collaboration, Ekies All Senses now showcases Greek architecture blending with natural surroundings, colors, and designs. Every room promises to be a home away from home. A family-owned hotel, it is only natural to have a homey feel. Each room has been painstakingly restored with nature and eco-tourism carefully considered. Eco-friendly materials were used throughout the property, from non-toxic paints through the use of ecological Coco-mat mattresses and minimal waste program implemented across the resort. Not only will guests enjoy a relaxing stay, they know they are staying in a hotel that is authentically environmentally friendly.
Rooms vary in size and design. They come in Standard Double, Superior Double, Junior Suite, Cabanas Suite, Large Suite, Penthouse Suite, Family Suite, Pine Suite and Evergreen Suite. The Standard Double features up to 25m². It may sound small, but it does have a queen size Coco-Mat bed and a soft pillow menu to choose from. It is equipped with flat screen TV, a DVD player, and free Wi-Fi to keep everyone busy. As the name suggests, the Standard Double fits two people comfortably. For those needing more space, a Superior Double might do featuring an added sofa bed in its 32m² space. The sofa bed or lounge area can be the perfect hideout for your child.
Married couples with a child looking for a little more space would do well by booking a Junior Suite. It has a Coco-Mat spacious bed at 180 to 200 cm. With a bigger space of up to 45m², the Junior Suite is perfect for three adults (or two adults plus one child and one infant).
