My stay at Luxury Hotel, Grecotel Corfu Imperial:
Are you thinking about booking a holiday to Corfu? Well…. think no longer and book right now. Corfu is such a magical Ionian Greek Island that is unspoilt and unchanged. The perfect island for chill out relaxation or a family holiday. Read my Luxury Hotel, Grecotel Corfu Imperial review.
I highly recommend a stay at one of the Grecotel resorts. My stay at Grecotel Corfu Imperial was sublime and perfect in every way, from stepping off the plane and being whisked away in the resort Mercedes Limousine, I enjoyed it all! Grecotel Corfu Imperial enjoys a magnificent setting on its own private Peninsula. A real luxury hotel.
Dream Villa Waterfront with Private Pool:

Whatever type of accommodation you choose, from a Deluxe Room to Royal Villa, Grecotel Corfu Imperial staff will look after you so well. I stayed in a Dream Villa Waterfront with Private Pool. A Villa choice is ideal when you want your own private villa with all the amenities of a top hotel.

The best ever welcome gifts! Feel instantly at home with nothing to do but relax and unwind and recover from your journey. Enjoy the views over the Ionian Sea towards Old Corfu Town and harbour. The yachts bobbing around will keep you entertained.
My Dream Villa Waterfront with Pool, pictured below. A bedroom with super comfy bed leading onto a patio area looking over the sea. My favourite thing was a Private Pool with steps leading down to a deck over the sea, perfect for a swim.

As my regular readers know, I stay in a lot of hotels. There is usually something that is missing, but not this time! Large living room with Coffee Machine, complimentary wine and soft drinks…. even my own wine fridge. The corkscrew was a bit of an intelligence test, which needless to say, I failed. Room Service came to the rescue luckily!
My particular bugbear is lack of coat hangers, but there were so many even a Diva couldn’t use all of them. Big spacious wardrobes too. Lots of lovely products in the luxurious bathroom and walk in Rain shower.
A Private Pool is such a luxurious treat! This is probably my number one favourite luxury, well worth splurging if your budget allows.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of your own space. Meals at Grecotel Corfu Imperial were a very special treat! Every Meal was superb, starting with breakfast every day at Mon Repos Restaurant. A cool, super chic minimalist restaurant which is enormous with pretty terraces too, for outside eating.

A superb array of breakfast dishes awaits, including my favourite Omelette, made by superb Omelette chef pictured above. Endless supply of the freshest fruit and juices too!

If you simply cannot tear yourself away from your room or Villa, have breakfast on your own terrace. Just tumble out of bed and look at the view. Dream Villa was just peaceful and perfect.
ELIXIR BEAUTY SPA AND GYM:

How do you like to relax and unwind? A massage and Spa treatment always does the trick! The new two story Elixir Beauty Spa is a luxurious treat, with every type of massage or beauty Treatment. My Body Scrub and relaxing massage was superb and I felt so good afterwards.
The Spa is beautiful, calming and very chic. Enjoy the new fitness centre too with state of the art equipment and spectacular views. Prices are quite reasonable with a 30 minute Relax massage for 50 euros and 50 minute at 70 euros.
Swimming every day in the crystal clear Ionian sea was just so special. Dipping in my own fresh water pool was definitely a highlight of this trip!
However, if you don’t indulge in such a luxury, the hotel pools are superb. New this year, they are large and modern and very spectacular.

How about a private Cabana, looking over the view and yachts at sea? Complimentary fresh fruits and iced water make it extra special. All the staff at the hotel are so kind, friendly and professional.

Watersport anyone? Yes please! I don’t know about you, but I would spend all day on the water. An array of fun Sports from Parasailing, Waterskiing, Kayaking, Paddle Boarding, Banana boats and Jetskiing. Don’t forget to pack your snorkel too, there are a lot of fish to see. I would never be bored!
PONTOON LUXURY CRUISES:
I loved luxuriating aboard the hotel Pontoon. A fabulous way to explore the island. You can hop aboard to visit the sister hotels free of charge, which is great. A visit aboard to take you to Corfu Old Town is unmissable. Follow my Corfu trips on a separate blog.
Hire the Pontoon to take you around the island for a day, the best way to explore and very luxurious too.
After dinner relax in the beautiful Italianate gardens and listen to some wonderful live music. Something different every night and a perfect way to end the evening sipping a glass of Champagne. Grecotel Corfu Imperial review.
You must be wondering why I haven’t told you about the all important food yet! The restaurants are so good, they have their own blog post! Read it here:
Grecotel Corfu Imperial meals were so superb and plentiful. Actually, I ate so many superb dishes I could probably write a book! Check out my in-depth coverage. In the meantime, I’ll tell you there are no less than 8 different restaurants at this hotel. If you want a change of scenery simply hop aboard the Pontoon and visit Grecotel Eva Palace or Lux Me Daphnia Bay.
