Danai Beach Resort & Villas
This Mediterranean gem is set amid the lush gardens and fragrant pine trees of the Halkidiki peninsula, known for its charming villages, historical sites, and pristine white sand beaches. But although the hotel is located less than three miles from the town of Nikiti, guests tend to spend their days on the resort’s property, relaxing by the heated saltwater pool, kayaking to nearby swimming holes, or indulging in a milk and honey bath at the spa. In the evening, the Seaside Bar is a tranquil place for a glass of rosé before heading to the hotel’s internationally inspired Andromeda restaurant for octopus carpaccio with pickled shallots and seared Dover sole. Marble-clad guest rooms come stocked with fresh flowers and Bulgari bath amenities, and the 2,000-square-foot villas, which have fireplaces and private terraces with heated pools, are a great option for families.
