About the location
Spread out within a 1,000-acre nature reserve on the Kassandra peninsula, Sani is a purpose-built paradise. This award-winning resort meticulously thinks of everything; between its four luxury hotels are dozens of restaurants, a comprehensive menu of activities and a packed social calendar throughout summer, when jazz and food festivals come to town. Lavish beaches cushion its coast – the hotels provide the full works, from watersports to beach clubs beside the horseshoe-shaped harbour. Speaking of the harbour, it’s the hub of nightlife and entertainment, and is filled with million-pound yachts and cool boutiques. There’s a real buzz in the evenings, with visitors turning out to pack the restaurants and wine bars. To top it off, the whole thing is wrapped up in Kassandra’s signature olive groves, pine groves and wetlands, sliced with hiking trails overlooking the Aegean Sea.
