Those seeking a last-minute Grecian escape or late summer getaway fit for the whole family, should steer away from the crowds and explore new territories this season, instead of jetting off to much-loved destinations or revisiting firm favourites. According to global travel network, Virtuoso®, one of the main concerns for consumers in 2023 is over tourism, which has led to more travellers to consider off-season escapes, choose lesser-known destinations teeming with untouched beauty and authentic experiences, and ultimately travel more purposefully.
Set in two of Greece’s most authentic destinations, Patmos Aktis Suites & Spa and Parga Beach Resort invite guests to experience an alternative side of the country. Located in the northeast and northwest, both locations offer everything and more for a quintessential Greek summer, filled with days basking in the sun, delicious food and pristine beaches.
Swap Mykonos for Patmos
Patmos has all the charm of the popular Greek islands like Mykonos, but with a more authentic, relaxed atmosphere. The small but perfectly formed island in the Dodecanese complex provides an unspoilt haven of discreet luxury and adventure, offering a scenic escape for the most discerning of travellers. An idyllic alternative for those who want to disconnect from the everyday and embrace a slower pace of life, Patmos, once referred to by locals as the ‘holy island’, has maintained its wild Mediterranean beauty and invites visitors to explore its religious past whilst revelling in its cosmopolitan present. On the island’s south-eastern corner, the chic boutique Patmos Aktis Suites & Spa, one of Patmos’ most luxury resorts, makes the perfect base to discover this Grecian gem. With 56 suites, 2 restaurants and a fully equipped spa, guests have direct access to the beach and a private jetty to dock their boats.
Swap Corfu for Parga
Set in the Epirus region in north-western Greece, Parga provides all the charisma of more popular European destinations sans the crowds. Set on a secluded bay overlooking the glistening Ionian Sea, Parga Beach Resort offers direct access to blue-flag Valtos Beach and is just a short walk or water taxi into the quaint seaside town. The resort has recently unveiled 23 luxury suites that feature a harmonious minimal design and are fully equipped with private balconies, terraces and some with private plunge pools for a true sense of seclusion. Guests are encouraged to discover all the region has to offer with a variety of experiences from kayaking adventures across the waves, to boat trips to neighbouring Paxi. Back at the resort, indulge in enticing menus at the three beachside restaurants before unwinding with a rejuvenating treatment at Blossom Wellness Center
