Can the lovely Greek island of Alonissos be even more irresistible to families? Rochelle Streater recently found the right answer at Marpunta Resort by Santikos Collection.
Marpunta Resort by Santikos Collection, Alonissos Island
As a seasoned traveller with a penchant for Greece’s breath taking landscapes, charming Greek islands and the country’s delectable cuisines, my recent stay at Marpunta Resort by Santikos Collection revealed an unexpected blend of all those pleasures.
Marpunta nestles on the captivating coast of Alonissos; one of the more peaceful Sporades Islands, north of Athens. The resort surpassed my expectations, weaving together azure waters, lush greenery, and modern amenities to create an idyllic haven for families seeking tranquillity.
Suites are sanctuaries of comfort with endless Alonissos Island views
The family accommodation also left an indelible mark on our stay. The spacious design and stunning balcony views, offering a front-row seat to the mesmerising sea and sunsets over the coast of Alonissos, provided a perfect sanctuary after days filled with exploration. Though the climb to our room was a steep one, it turned into a delightful family game, with the option of a golf buggy ride from reception adding a touch of convenience.
A gastronomic journey round Greece and beyond
Dining at Marpunta was a culinary adventure in itself, thanks to its two brilliant restaurants.
Whether indulging in fresh seafood by the waterfront or savouring traditional Greek delicacies, each meal was a testament to the region’s culinary prowess. The fusion of local flavours and international cuisines heightened the dining experience, leaving our taste buds yearning for more.
Finding our bliss on private beaches and by the pool
Our family’s favourite moments were spent at the resort’s private beaches, where crystal clear waters provided a refreshing escape.
