Built on a densely wooded peninsula that gently slopes towards the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea just 6kms from Corfu Town, the Kontokali Bay Resort and Spa offers a superb luxurious atmosphere. The peninsula location means that the hotel is all but surrounded by the sea and boasts its own private beach area and a sea water pool.
The main hotel building and the bunglaows are situated in lush green gardens. Each of the bedrooms in the main building and the bunglaows offer a private terrace or balcony. Each has a double or twin beds and a small couch or sofa bed (making them suitable for up to 3 guests) whilst family rooms have a separate area (sliding doors) containing an additional 2 single beds (suitable for up to 4 guests). All have bath/shower, bathroom amenities, bathrobes and slippers, safety deposit box, hairdrier, flat screen satellite TV, air conditioning, minibar, direct dial telephone and wi-fi internet access. Standard rooms offer garden views – upgrades are available to offer bay views (over the marina of Gouvia) or sea views (over the Ionian towards Corfu Town). For even more luxury, rooms with private plunge pools are also available.

There are 2 private sandy beach areas where there are plenty of sunbeds available. The hotel also has the advantage of sundecks that stretch out over the water – cooled by the sea breezes. Alternatively, there are sunbeds around the infinity style (seawater) swimming pool and throughout the lush gardens of the hotel.
There are a variety of watersports available including waterski-ing, paragliding, wakeboarding, pedaloes and scuba-diving.

The luxury Kontokali Bay Resort and Spa quite simply is a hidden gem that deserves its reputation as one of Corfu’s best hotels.
