Perched on a hillside on the northeastern coast of the island, the property offers a unique vantage point from which to absorb this island’s natural beauty. The sea, countryside and sunset are all within view, framed by Olea’s luxe suites and communal areas, each defined by modern and elegant interiors.
With three restaurants, three bars and a spa area, Olea is the sum of its many parts, which together amount to a rejuvenating experience.
Also known as Zante, Zakynthos is an idyllic island in the Ionian Sea marked by picturesque beaches, lush countryside and clusters of caves and sandy coves. Tsilivi offers expanses of crystal blue waters that present the opportunity for a number of watersports and sit in a soothing contrast to the locale’s craggy, mountainous landscapes and thick, pine-forested hills.
At the heart of the property is a 4,000-square-metre lake-like pool, which weaves and winds around Olea’s 93 suites, each of which takes a natural position on this internal creek.
Blending the outdoors and indoors, the accommodations range from 36 square metres to 105 square metres and each features a terrace which overlooks either the Ionian Sea, the resort’s pool or the gardens.
A fluid mix of smooth stone, textured linens and an earthy palette lends itself to an understated bohemian style, each cube structure flooded with enough light that the boundaries between inside and out are comfortably blurred. This softening of perimeters is further emphasised by private swim-up pools in some suites and easy access to Olea’s dominant waterway.
The casual Omikron Restaurant, complete with outdoor terrace, serves up international cuisine, while the more formal Flow Dine and Wine is a dinner-only Mediterranean kitchen that brings fine dining to the hotel. Gourmet offerings are rounded up at the Greek-flavoured Cocoon Resto and Bar, a perfect prelude to nightcaps at O Bar, which offers a selection of national and international wines, or F Bar and its choice of local wine and signature cocktails.
Underscoring Olea All Suite Hotel’s commitment to wellness and leisure is a gym, beauty salon and the Royal Spa & Relaxation area, a 300-square-metre space of peace and tranquillity.
