Time spent at the family-friendly Elivi Skiathos will pass by effortlessly, whether enjoying the resort grounds or whiling away the hours on the beaches of Koukounaries, Ambelakia, ‘Little’ or ‘Big Banana’, which the hotel overlooks from its elevated perch. Back onsite, Elivi is a verdant wonderland of five-star services, delectable cuisine, spa treatments and sumptuous suites, all cradled by a surrounding wildlife refuge that gifts this stretch of coastline its natural feel, so the gardens, olive groves and pine trees also fit right in. This, and those irreplaceable Aegean Sea views, are best admired from either one of the two beautiful swimming pools, your private terrace or any of the six stylish bars that Elivi boasts.
Such wonderful surrounds set the scene for another highlight, a signature ELEMIS Spa of holistic massage and skincare therapies, a sultry hammam, sauna and indoor pool. Indeed, wellness and rejuvenation go hand-in-hand with the Elivi Skiathos resort, not just the spa and gym, personal training, yoga and Pilates classes, but each of the three fine restaurants too. These extraordinary dining spaces feature sophisticated menus of Greek and Mediterranean-inspired dishes, seafood and more besides, to be savoured either on a gravelled patio among the gardens, beside the ocean under the shade of a pine tree, or tucked away in a traditional taverna-style setting. Elegant, fashionable, ideally situated and good for the soul, the Elivi Skiathos hotel is truly hard to beat.

With six bars and three restaurants to choose from, there is an ambience, menu and mood for everyone at Elivi Skiathos. The gastronomic experience is enhanced no end by the setting of each of the three main eateries, with one being cosied up under a traditional thatched roof, while the other two flaunt a fine al fresco setting, either within the gardens or on a patio overlooking the ocean. Expect the best locally produced Greek ingredients, oils and vegetables, freshly caught seafood and a sophisticated touch across every plate of Mediterranean-inspired food here, at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meanwhile, the multiple beach and poolside bars offer more of the same, with the Elevate Bar in particular being a prime place to watch the sun go down with a cocktail or two.
