Sani Dunes 

Contemporary beach chic-style resort

The newest hotel within the fantastic Sani Resort, Dunes is a spacious and sophisticated retreat.

From the moment you step into the lobby, you’ll get to feel that typical Greek cool, breezy and bright vibe and take in those Aegean Sea views. Sani Dunes is a haven between ancient olive groves, the glistening Aegean Sea and the cosmopolitan Sani Marina where you’ll find lively bars and restaurants. The hotel is centred around one of the largest heated pools in the Mediterranean which is surrounded by plush sun loungers and crisscrossed by wooden bridges. Head down to Sani Dunes beach where there are sun beds and umbrellas. This is also the setting of the gloriously chic Beach House which is open at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
