Reopening for the season this May, ELIVI Skiathos invites guests to experience more with their stay with tailor-made activities for an unforgettable holiday.
From hiking through the national park and forest, to cycling or horse riding through the olive groves and pine forests, to numerous watersports including swim safaris, guided snorkelling and scuba diving – there is something for everyone to enjoy, not matter what your passion.
ELIVI invites guests to live every day to the fullest, to open their eyes to new horizons and seize every pleasure there is.
Perched on a hilltop on the Pounta Peninsula overlooking the Aegean Sea, the resort boasts unparalleled island views.
The 161 room, family-owned, beachfront resort is located in an area of natural beauty beside a wildlife refuge, forest and lagoon with beautiful beaches within walking distance. The hotel is designed with respect for its surrounding environment and is perfectly adapted to the terrain.
The resort has two main outdoor pools and numerous private pools, a spa, an indoor and outdoor gym, tennis and basketball court and a football pitch.
For the foodies, the hotel has five restaurants and six bars including four beach bars, offering a wide variety of menus from a Mediterranean steakhouse to Japanese fusion cuisine, Italian-Mediterranean cuisine and a traditional Greek fish restaurant.
Water enthusiasts can choose from a series of options including scuba diving down different depths or snorkelling with marine life, to exploring over 40 dive sites - including reefs, wrecks, and small caves - for certified divers. Children up to 8 years old can also go diving in confined waters “bubble” with assistance from trained divers.
Biking & Hiking
For nature lovers, rent a bike of your choice and discover the Skiathos forest landscape with scenic biking routes for all ages. And if hiking is more your style, choose from a variety of unique walking paths including hiking with wine tasting or hiking while exploring the island’s medical herbs.
No island holiday is complete without cruises! Guests can choose from a day cruise on a traditional yacht with lunch on board to sunset dinner cruises with delicious Greek food and wines, or for something different, a rubber boat cruise. Guests can also go day sailing on the brand new 50.5ft sailing boat or on a traditional trehantiri to discover the nearby deserted islands, cave of Fonissa, the Skiathos Castle, and more. While overlooking the Sporades Sea, feast on a traditional lunch served on board or at a traditional taverna.
Explore the island with an amazing 60km safari off-road tour driving through the raw nature and hidden gems of the Sporades Island. Or take a tour around town starting from the Papadiamantis House, home of one of the most prominent Greek writers, to the Monastery of Evangelistria, known as the birthplace of the Greek flag, followed by wine tasting at the local winery, Parisi’s Winey.
