If you’ve got your sights set on Greece this summer, add the Emerald Studios in Thassos to your list of contenders. Hidden on top of a hill decorated by a 400-year-old olive grove, the sea views from these studios are unbeatable. And, although the hotel’s perched up high, you’ll find Golden Beach - which boasts Blue Flag status - just a five-minute walk away. If you’d rather view the Adriatic from afar, you’ll be pleased to know that the pool here’s famed for its first-class sea views, too. It even comes with a bar that supplies snacks while you gaze out across the ocean. What more could you want?
Rooms with sea views come in abundance at Zimbali Playa Spa, Costa de Almeria and that’s mainly because it’s right on the beach, with direct access to the water’s edge, or sit back and relax at the hotel’s tropical pool scene. Décor-wise, you’ll find elaborate domed roofs, bright orange walls and majestic archways waiting to impress. It’s just as impressive inside, too. Once you’ve dried off, head inside for an eye-catching African-themed grand lobby dressed in salmon-pink walls, tiled floors and vine-draped balconies.
Beach hotels are pretty popular in Greece, but our favourite has to be the no-frills Kekatos Studios. Just five-minutes from the beach, these family-friendly spacious studios come up trumps for location. Each one comes with a sea view, as well as a kitchenette if you fancy grabbing some local ingredients and rustling up a meal or two. Walk just five minutes to the nearest Blue Flag beach, or stroll for 10 minutes to Lassi – a traditional town studded with atmospheric bars and tavernas.
Choose between the L-shaped Infinity pool cascading towards the Mediterranean or a never-ending beach at the adults-only Hotel Angela. But it’s not just about the beachfront setting at this luxury hotel. Fuengirola is also just a 15-minute walk away, where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, shops, nightlife and beaches to keep you busy. And, while this four-star number is small enough to feel like a boutique hotel, it’s got plenty of room options including sea view rooms which are available as an upgrade.
A rooftop infinity pool and all-white interiors are just two of the highlights at the Hotel Cavtat, just 25 minutes’ drive from Dubrovnik.
With highly polished interiors and a Blue Flag beachfront location, the TUI SENSATORI Atlantica Dreams Resort and Spa adds a splash of luxury to an under-the-radar corner of Rhodes.
The Seaview Patong lives up to its name - it’s just across the road from Patong Beach, at the quieter, southern end of the sands.
