Ecoresort Hotel Zefyros
Finding an attractive resort with a large pool that is also eco-friendly and offers good value for money is not an easy task, but the Zefyros Ecoresort Hotel in Zakynthos has managed to combine all these elements beautifully.
Zefyros makes you feel right at home with its invitingly large swimming pool, holistic spa and panoramic restaurant serving delicious home-style cooking. But there is much more than meets the eye behind the scenes. On-premises biking facilities, a barbecue area for fun-filled gatherings, a happening nightclub and a busy cocktail bar by the pool add an important element of entertainment to environment. Only a few minutes from the main town and the beaches of Zakynthos, right next to the village of Agios Kyrikos, the Zefyros Hotel nestles itself among quiet vineyards, olive groves and stunning landscapes.
What makes this hotel very unique is the attention that the Italian owners have put into creating a truly amazing Zakynthian experience that also respects nature. The exchanges between Italy and Greece are very evident across Zakynthos, and the Zefyros Ecoresort Hotel underlines this historic bond. Indeed, the property is managed by the friendly duo of colleagues, Adriana and Christos, bringing the warmth of both cultures alive at the hotel.
Equally important is the range of activities that the property provides, such as hiking, horseback riding, traditional cooking, sailing, honey making and touring Zakynthos' famed olive groves. The Zefyros Ecoresort encourages contact between visitors and locals, unveiling the rich traditions, heritage and cuisine of Zakynthos. Needless to say, clean rooms with all the amenities from Satellite TV and wireless internet to AC are available, plus some interesting artisitic pieces, some of which were painted by the owner herself!
Elsewhere in the resort, a visit to the spa is highly recommended, especially if you like a relaxing massage or reinvigorating treatments for face and body that employ the best of natural products and professional techniques. Other leisure options abound, including table tennis, soccer, pool table and cocktail bar by the pool.
In the meantime, rest assured that all the practices in managing the hotel promote sustainability, from waste recycling and biodegradable detergents to eco-friendly pool management and use of local products. Here's one great vacation spot for couples and families that, on top of a having a really good time, will make you feel good about contributing to a better environment.
