If 2020 has had one positive, it is that it has shown how beautiful the Greek islands are. People could not wait to get some sunshine in the summer and Greece was the perfect place to go. As a result, we have seen a trend appear for our honeymoon couples to not travel so far for their honeymoon and thus choose Greece as their choice of destination. There are many positive to this including a short flight and no jet lag. With more regular flights as well it means you can go on your honeymoon to Greece on a day that suits you and your wedding day plans perfectly.
By going to Greece for your honeymoon, it does not mean that you are compromising on luxury and five-star quality. Far from it in fact. Some of the best hotels in the world can be found on these little islands. What is even better is that many smaller hotels than in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean meaning the service you receive is out of this world. You will be treated like royalty in Greece – the does not sound like a bad way to celebrate being newly married to us.
We recommend grabbing a hot drink and scroll down to read our top luxury Greek hotels that are perfect for a honeymoon. We apologise in advance for making the decision on which one to choose for yourself difficult but our knowledgeable team will be happy to talk to you about each one to help you find the perfect one for you.
Grace Hotel – Santorini
When we think of the Greek islands, we often picture blue roofed white buildings looking over the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. This image is of Santorini and is at the top of many people’s list of Greek islands to stay on. Santorini is famous for its breath-taking sunsets and luckily the Grace Hotel is in the perfect spot to admire these each night. The infinity pool, just like the rest of the hotel, is out of this world and consequently has won various awards. It is the best place to enjoy the beautiful views in what can only be described as heavenly surroundings. Our top tip is not to each too much at lunch time as dinner here something not to be missed. You get the best views of Santorini’s famous caldera and the ocean whilst enjoying some of the tastiest food you will ever try.
Stella Island Luxury Resort and Spa: Crete
Stella Island Luxury Resort and Spa is an adults only hotel in Crete where you will experience an unforgettable honeymoon. The rooms in this hotel definitely are some of the most luxurious in Greece. Room types include an island villa with a private pool, an overwater bungalow and a room with a swim up pool. For food lovers, staying here is a dream! The chefs in the five restaurants only use the finest ingredients creating a magnificent culinary experience. The lagoon-style pools stretch around the entire resort, leaving plenty of room for everyone to find their own private spot. By staying here for your honeymoon, you will be pampered from the moment you check-in until the moment you leave making you desperate to return as soon as possible.
Elivi Skiathos – Skiathos
For a more traditional Greek island that is slightly quieter than some of the more popular Greek island yet have plenty to do, Skiathos is perfect. You will certainly get all the ‘Mama Mia’ vibes and in fact you can do a day trip to the neighbouring island of Skopelos, which was the filming location of the first film. Elivi Skiathos is a dream hotel for you to spend your honeymoon as it has a true hideaway feel to it. The views are captivating and the hotel has plenty of sleek pools and direct access to four of the islands beast beaches for you to enjoy. You have to go all out for your honeymoon if you can and so we recommend having a room with either a private hot tub or pool just to sit back and relax in style.
Lindos Blu Luxury Hotel and Suites: Rhodes
Lindos Blu Luxury Hotel and Suites is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World – a group of the best hotels in the whole world. The hotel is the epitome of luxury and style and is an idyllic couple’s only retreat. Choosing to stay here is a great alternative if you want something a little different to the islands of Santorini and Mykonos as you will definitely receive the full luxury experience but Lindos itself is a bit quieter and more traditionally Greek than those two islands. There are two things that we absolutely love about this hotel. The first is the rooms. They are all so beautiful and each one comes with sea views – the perfect way to wake up each morning is to wonderful sea views. The second best part of the hotel is the fact that there is not just one but two infinity pools. For those that love the pool more than the beach, this is the hotel for you.
Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort: Mykonos
For stylish bars and chic restaurants, Mykonos is the Greek island to go to and the Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort is no exception in keeping up with this vibe. It is an intimate hotel that has a very romantic ambience to it so is an ideal choice for a honeymoon. If you love the beach you are in luck with this hotel as it is right on a picturesque beach – you will definitely be taking lots of photos to show off to your friends on Instagram. The hotel is all about peace and calm to help you relax in the day and enjoy the nightlife at night. A prime example how tranquillity is attained is that no motorised sports are allowed in this area. We highly advise heading to the White Bar that has an outdoor terrace for some drinks before going to Mykonos Town for a night out.
Ikos Dassia: Corfu
For the best Familymoon in Greece, Ikos Dassia is where you need to go. We believe that because the children are joining you on your honeymoon, it does not mean that you cannot still enjoy a little luxury too and you will get more than a little luxury here. The hotel comes with a private beach, heated indoor and outdoor pools, a separate children’s pool, a top-class spa and unlimited activities including a world-renowned tennis club. You are not isolated in the hotel either as you can make use of the free shuttle service they run to Corfu town for you to explore. The hotel simply embodies everything family focussed meaning that the children and adults all have the best holiday ever. Ikos Dassia has also taken the all-inclusive concept to a new level, which we absolutely love here at Suitcase Travel. Not only can you eat at the multiple restaurants on site as part of the package but you have the opportunity to have dinner at some of the local restaurants that is included in your all-inclusive package. How good does that sound? The hotel is supporting the local economy and you get to experience it too!
