7 nights from £580 sani resort halkidiki

The magnificent Sani Resort on the Aegean coast is a firm favourite for families, enjoying superb facilities and services, sandy beaches and warm, clear sea.

Sani Resort is a family owned 1,000 acre private ecological reserve with pine forests, bird sanctuaries, lakes and olive groves, all surrounding the marina and four individual hotels - Sani Beach Hotel, Porto Sani Village, Sani Asterias Suites and the Sani Beach Club.  And, opening late June 2017:  Sani Dunes for families with kids aged 12 or more.  Lush, landscaped gardens with Mediterranean scents on this unspoilt peninsular separate the hotels, whilst the Aegean Sea laps gently along the seven mile sandy beach.

One of the big attractions of Sani Resort is the amount of activities and facilities the resort, as a whole, offers for all ages and interests. A particular highlight is the bustling marina and shopping plaza with its choice of restaurants, lively bars, boutiques and great leisure and sports facilities, including yoga and fitness.

The Sani Beach Hotel is the largest of the four hotels at Sani Resort and enjoys one of the best locations right beside the beach. Close too, are the resort tennis courts, watersports centre and the children's club, with the marina being just a short walk away. A wide choice of child friendly restaurants, a heated infinity pool and life guards on the beach make for the most relaxing family break.

A more boutique and intimate offering is the Sani Asterias Suites with its exclusive stretch of private beach and heated pool. Each family deluxe suite is spacious and stylish with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate living space and garden area.

The Sani Beach Club enjoys an exceptional position at the far end of the resort overlooking the beautiful bay and Mount Olympus across the Aegean Sea. Accommodation is in charming and elegant bungalows with equally magnificent views, and bathrooms with baths and separate rain showers. The Beach Club has its own children's club and crèche, together with a watersports and diving centre and an exceptional choice of restaurants and bars. A new fitness and yoga centre has just been added, ensuring this hotel has something for everyone.

With views across the gardens, lagoons and the marina, Porto Sani Village is an established family friendly option. With the exception of the Junior Suites, all the suites at Porto Sani Village have separate bedrooms and living areas set within spacious low rise 'villa style' accommodation. The new Three Bedroom Family Suites are ideal for larger families, and those with older children. Families with younger children can use the dedicated crèche, whilst they take some well-earned rest, either by the heated pool, on the beach or in the tranquil Spa Suite for a treatment.

Families of all ages are a firm feature throughout the resort and catered for in a variety of ways. Most restaurants have dedicated children's menus and are well stocked with highchairs and open at family friendly times, whilst a few are exclusively for guests over 12 years. To make a guest's stay as hassle free and relaxing as possible, Sani can arrange some extra touches in the rooms for children. Guests can use the crèche and children's club, from 4 months to 12 years, that are located at the Sani Beach Hotel and Sani Beach Club, and the new crèche and children's club at Porto Sani Village, (available also for guests at the Sani Asterias Suites). The free Teen Club is open in July and August only.

Cultural excursions

For guests who would like to explore the region, Sani recommends (and organises) a number of different cultural excursions, including:

Athitos Village:  Just 15km away, Athitos is one of the most picturesque villages in Halkidiki and is very different to anything else around it. The village has its own architectural style, with old stone-built houses. You can stroll down the cobblestone alleys, smelling the flowers that are everywhere and relax at one of the traditional taverns. The village overlooks the peninsula of Sithonia and offers a fantastic view to the Toroneos Gulf. It’s a relaxing way to pass the time and you can also make the best of the turquoise waters and relaxing beach bars.

Thessaloniki:  Greece’s second largest city and the capital of Macedonia offers a rich cultural and historical heritage as well as a cosmopolitan café life. On this excursion, you will visit the Archaeological Museum, the White Tower, some of the splendid churches including the Byzantine church of St. Dimitrios and climb up the Acropolis (highest point) to enjoy a panoramic view of the city. Naturally, there’s also time to enjoy the shopping and cafés downtown.

Pella-Virgina:  Be prepared for an early start for this day excursion to Vergina - one of the most historic places in Greece and the old capital of the ancient Macedonia state. Some of the most important remains are the palace, lavishly decorated with mosaics and painted stuccoes, and the burial ground with more than 300 tumuli, some of which date from the 11th century B.C. The tomb of the Macedonian King Philip, father of Alexander the Great is recognised as a Monument of World Heritage by UNESCO. Philip's tomb complete with its unique valuables are kept in a specially designed museum.
