Lesante Blu Exclusive Beach Resort (Zakynthos, Greece)
True to its name, Lesante Blu Exclusive Beach Resort is surrounded by spectacular views of the Ionian Sea, offering privacy and peace of mind to the experienced traveler. The property opened in May 2017, with 65 guestrooms all facing the sea. Lesante Blu’s “it’s all about you” mentality is exhibited through its adults-only concept, private pools, state-of-the-art suites and discreet staff. Fine dining restaurants with Mediterranean flavors prepared by the Executive Chef George Plotas enhance the culinary offerings, while complete tranquility and rejuvenating moments can be enjoyed in the Essence Spa with a Germain de Cappucini treatment. For a picturesque arrival and departure, guests can arrange a helicopter transfer directly with Lesante Blu and take in all the sights of the Greek islands.
An uncommon experience not to miss: Explore awe-inspiring Zakynthos and surrounding islands by private yacht. Lesante Blu will organize an exciting outing that includes stops at Zakynthos’ famous blue caves, secluded beaches, and even venture to further Ionian islands, like Kefalonia or Lefkada. Dive into the magic waters of Marathonissi, have a lunch on board and close the day admiring the sunset.
