Kontokali Bay Resort & Spa 

A landmark hotel known for its warm, friendly welcome

Sandwiched between a sparkling marina and the open sea, this laid-back hotel has a stunning beach setting with watersports, tennis, a kids’ club, spa and more among the lures.

Maturing like a fine wine, the laid-back and traditional-in-style Kontokali Bay has been welcoming guests for over 50 years. The stunning beach, clear waters, superb Greek food and ease of exploring all combine to create a classic Corfu experience. This is the type of place that people return to time and again, with a friendly welcome – many of the all-Corfiot hotel staff have worked here for years – and the feeling of being in a place where you’re treated like friends rather than guests. Thanks to its peninsula setting, there’s a stunning view at nearly every turn – the marina to the west, the coastline to the east – and the elevated pool offers hypnotic views over it all.

Why we love Kontokali Bay Resort & Spa

  • The resort is a 20-minute drive from Corfu Town, making it an ideal base for cultural explorations.

  • It’s set between the beach and marina, with a number of watersports on offer as well as various land activities, from tennis to dance workshops.

  • It’s great for families, thanks to a dedicated Children’s Village and Mini Club offering daily activities.

  • The spa is excellent, with a big choice of treatments plus two saunas, a steam room, adult-only pool and more.
