Located on Sani Beach in Halkidiki, Sani Dunes is the latest addition to the wonderful Sani Resort group. The hotel opened in Summer 2017 as a very welcome and luxurious addition to the Mediterranean coast.
There are 136 rooms, each decorated with natural woods and cream fabric creating an elegant and contemporary feel. Our top picks are the family suites which are interconnecting, the Junior Suites which have a panoramic window overlooking lush gardens and the Panorama Junior Suite, just steps from the beach.
When it comes to dining, Fresco restaurant see's Michelin-starred chef Ettore Botrini present a menu of authentic Italian cuisine. The Beach House serves a range of Mediterranean cuisine while Dunes serves both hearty and healthy breakfasts.

The state-of-the-art spa boasts six private treatment rooms, a Thai massage cabin and a couple's suite with private steam bath.
There's plenty to do in and around the hotel for everyone, too; sun-worshippers can spend days on the resorts private beach, water babies can enjoy windsurfing and water-skiing in the Aegean Sea whilst the mindful take paddle board yoga classes. For active guests, there are plenty of walking trails through the forest to explore. Sani Dunes welcomes children above the age of 12, and the teens are well catered to with football, dance and sailing academies all on offer.
