Sani Resort

Mark and David's verdict:

In the unspoilt Greek region of Halkidiki, Sani is one of Europe’s most attractive family resorts set on an eco-reserve of pine forests, jagged cliffs and superb sandy beaches. In addition to a choice of hotels within the resort, there is a marina stuffed with posh yachts, authentic tavernas, a crèche, tennis centre and outdoor cinema.

Sani Resort says

Our resort is unique: a purpose-built playground for families set in a 1,000-acre ecological reserve made up of forests, olive groves and white sandy beaches. It is located in Halkidiki on the Greek mainland, a region known for its crystal clear seas and pristine coastline.

  • Great for families
  • Natural beauty
  • Superb beaches

Within the resort you’ll find a choice of hotels, spas, extensive sporting facilities and a number of authentic Greek restaurants and tavernas, some overlooking the busy marina.

Because Sani is so large, but self-contained, families are free to roam in safety. There are hiking trails through the woods, mountain bikes to rent and long beaches that are perfect for sunset walks.

Most popular amongst families are the Porto Sani Village, close to the Marina, and the Sani Beach Club with contemporary bungalows, some with private pool.

Both hotels offer excellent facilities for children. On the beach, the Babe Watch nannies will take care of babies and toddlers while you enjoy a swim (the first 30 minutes is free). The Melissa Mini Club takes children from 4-12 years, with a programme of activities that includes a mini-Olympics, while the Teenage Club runs throughout the high season for ages 12-16.

Our OFSTED-standard crèche and mini club is run by UK childcare specialists Worldwide Kids Company. The Creche accepts babies as young as 4 months old and is chargeable but the Mini Club and Teenagers Club are free of charge. We have two locations for the Creche and Mini Club – one which serves Porto Sani Village and Sani Asterias Suites and one at Sani Beach Club.

The boutique-style of Sani Asterias Suites makes it a popular choice amongst couples, not least honeymooners, with its own exclusive beach, Michelin-starred chefs and all-suite accommodation. In May 2011, Sani Asterias Suites was awarded the coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, a reflection of guests’ high satisfaction levels.
