This tropical-modernist escape frames
Zakynthos’ northeast coast in all its glory
The village of Tsilivi on the Greek island of Zakynthos sets a bucolic backdrop for the newest jewel in the Ionian crown : Olea All Suite Hotel. A veritable treasure, located on a hillside on the northeastern coast, this all-suite, adult-friendly resort (accepting guests aged 12 and older) offers a unique vantage point from which to absorb this island’s stunning natural beauty.
The sea, countryside, and sunset are all within view, framed by Olea’s luxe suites and numerous communal areas, each defined by modern and elegant interiors. With three restaurants, three bars, and a multifaceted spa area, Olea is the sum of its many parts, which together amount to a truly rejuvenating experience.
At the heart of the property is a 4,000 square meter lake-like pool, which weaves and winds around Olea’s 93 suites, each of which takes a natural position on this internal creek. In a reflection of the powerful presence of lush vegetation and calming waters in this corner of Zakynthos, Olea’s design visibly incorporates natural materials such as rustic oak wood, bamboo, and rattan.
Blending both the outdoors and indoors, the suites range from 36 square meters to 105 square meters and each feature terraces that overlook either the Ionian Sea, the resort’s pool, or the gardens. A fluid mix of smooth stone, multitextured linens and an earthy palette lends itself to an understated bohemian style, and each cube structure is flooded with enough light that the boundaries between inside and out are comfortably blurred.
