The property is perched above the beautiful Karavostasi Beach in the Parga region, looking west towards Corfu and Paxos – a much loved holiday destination for locals. An area of astounding natural beauty, the luxurious MarBella Elix sits in unspoilt surroundings where the mountains meet the Ionian Sea.
Guests to the newly open hotel can expect beautiful sea views, 146 spacious and contemporary guest rooms and suites, a beautiful stretch of golden coastline with turquoise, crystal-clear waters and exceptional facilities. It has been designed with the environment in mind to reflect and preserve the natural surroundings, mirroring the sandy cliffs with a contemporary and minimalist style. In celebration of the opening the lobby will exhibit two Greek kaftans, a traditional silk costume dating back to the 19th century, as a nod to the region’s history during the Ottoman occupation.
MarBella Elix is located within an hour’s drive from Preveza Airport (PVK) which is served by a number of airlines from the UK, including British Airways. The hotel can also arrange sea transfers from Corfu, ideal for those looking to twin with MarBella Collection’s two properties on the Ionian island.
The hotel’s magical setting, nestled within nature, will appeal to guests who appreciate the beauty of the surroundings as much as they do luxury accommodation. Opportunities for enjoying the great outdoors are abound, whether it is hiking in the hills or swimming in the azure, clear waters along the Karavostasi beach. The property is also certified as ‘Bike Friendly’ and ideal for guests looking to cycle through the countryside surrounding the hotel with a resident nature guide. The stunning Karavostasi sandy beach offers seclusion and privacy with a delegated area beneath the hotel available only for hotel guests. The beach can be reached via funicular or steps and offers a luxury service with sun beds, umbrellas and towels along with a host of non-motorised water sports including SUP, kayaks and pedaloes.
