Romantic escape to beautiful Zakynthos? Excellent idea but do not neglect the choice of the hotel. You could find yourself in a family resort and instead maybe you are looking for tranquility or it could be worse and found in Laganas, in a hotel frequented by young people who live the island more at night than during the day. If you are looking for a hotel in Zakynthos for Couples, which is in a strategic position, guarantees you tranquility and is also romantic, the Castelli hotel is our recommendation.
The Castelli hotel is located right in Laganas, but away from its uncontrollable nightlife and its unstoppable chaos: a hidden oasis among the olive trees where you can really feel at home but with some extra love.
The Castelli hotel is an adults onlyhotel where we had the pleasure of staying during our 3-day Zante challenge and it was a real panacea to rest after really hectic days.
Our room was a Superior Swim Up, a beautiful room with a small private pool; a basic and relaxing environment that allowed us to really rest and relax. We were also in the All Inclusive formula so we didn’t have to worry about anything, not even choosing a restaurant (also because we had very little time available).
The Castelli hotel and activities
As already mentioned, the hotel is surrounded by greenery and peace, despite Laganas being less than 5 minutes away. The large garden that characterizes this structure hosts many activities: yoga, pilates, massages and relaxing treatments, water aerobics.
The hotel also has a beautiful educational farm and it is often possible to participate in the olive harvest and also in cooking classes during which you can learn how to prepare tzatziki like a real local!
Whatever activity you want to do you can do it with the Castelli hotel: hiking, biking, boat tours, diving
“The guest first of all” is one of the hotel’s slogans and we can guarantee you that it really is; all the staff, even with us, helped us with any request: from car rental, to the organization of our tour, from the lunch box to the taxi to the airport.
No stress, relaxation is the watchword here and that is why the hotel staff takes care that you always have everything you want, including smiles.
A luxury treatment that, however, you receive in a completely relaxed and informal way. A new concept of Boutique Hotel where the guest is not a “number” but a special person who becomes part of the large family of the Hotel Castelli (think that the owner knows all his guests and remembers by heart which room he is staying everyone)
What we appreciated about the Castelli hotel, among other things, is its Green philosophy.
Luxury can be reconciled with respect for the environment and sustainability: just think that the hotel tries to limit plastic as much as possible (as soon as we arrived we were given a cotton shopper to avoid plastic bags) and also invites its guests to do so by providing in the rooms a special basket for recyclable materials such as paper and plastic. A special filter for water saving and energy saving systems was installed in all rooms.
Most of the products you will find in the hotel and in your rooms come from local producers to keep the local economy alive all year round.
In addition, the hotel supports the protection of theCaretta-Caretta turtles, true queens of Zakynthos, and often hosts volunteers who take care of them to raise awareness among tourists on the subject.
We could tell you many other things about this philosophy but we limit ourselves to telling you that for this reason the hotel is award-winning.
The challenge of the Hotel Castelli
We talked to you about the All Inclusive formula, so the question you will have asked yourself is “but is it possible in time of Covid?”
We can absolutely tell you yes. The Castelli hotel not only maintains very high standards of cleanliness while respecting the environment but has organized the buffet for meals in a truly impeccable way.
And speaking of the buffet: a real treat for the eyes and palate … any palate. We delighted every day with Pasta, fish, meat, side dishes, typical Greek cuisine and desserts, there was an embarrassment of choice, of course, all drinks were served at the table.
The romantic experience
We know you were looking forward to this section.
Well, the Castelli hotel really knows how to give you a truly romantic stay.
In addition to the guaranteed relaxation and tranquility and the splendid rooms with swimming pool, it is also possible to have a very romantic floating breakfast. From Zakynthos to Bali in the blink of an eye: open the window of your room and the hearty breakfast floats delicately in your pool.
But you can also choose to ask for lunch or an aperitif.
Have you seen our reel on Instagram?
And there is also the possibility of a romantic dinner among the olive trees but we can assure you that every corner, every detail, every moment in this hotel is romantic and will make you fall in love with Zakynthos even more.
You will leave the hotel on the day of departure, with that sadness of having to leave this oasis, this little private paradise of yours, this new great Greek family that has welcomed you and your desire will be to return as soon as possible.
And don’t forget to leave your greeting at the hotel on the wall of love!
