The most luxurious of the four hotels that make up the Sani Resort.
Occupying a 1,000-acre private estate including pine forests, a private marina and seven kilometers of sandy beaches, the resort is located directly on a sandy beach, which is reserved exclusively for guests of Sani Asterias and Porto Sani, the other five-star part of the resort. Each of the low-rise villa style rooms has its own private terrace or garden, and there are sunbeds on the beach reserved for each individual suite. Guests can enjoy in-room beauty treatments and massages, and also have access to the spa at the nearby Porto Sani. The hotel's gourmet Water Restaurant overlooking the marina serves excellent Greek and international cuisine. Other facilities in the resort include 18 estaurants, many of which have extensive children's menus, an open-air cinema, a variety of shops, bars and cafés around the marina, and an evening entertainment program with high quality stage shows for the whole family. Excursions to Mount Athos or traditional markets and villages can also be arranged.
Sani Asterias welcomes children of all ages. The private beach offers a 'babewatch' babysitting service and the fantastic facilities in the rest of the resort are all accessible, beaches with shallow, child-friendly waters and lifeguards, two watersports centres, a diving centre with PADI instructors, a mountain-biking centre and eight tennis courts with professional coaching. The hotel's entertainment team organizes a huge range of sports and other activities, and there are crèches and kids clubs for children and teenagers from six months to 16 years.
Why we love it
The resort is set on the Kassandra peninsula - the westernmost prong of the trident-like Halkidiki Peninsula that juts into the northern Aegean.
