Lesante Cape Resort & Villas

5* out of 5 stars

Five-star Lesante Cape Resort & Villas can be found tucked away in Akrotiri village on Zante's northeast coast. The village boasts a long, rich history, and the resort a peaceful spot on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Ionian Sea.

The resort's design is inspired by traditional Zakynthian architecture. And its 55 suites and 10 villas offer both a wealth of amenities and total privacy. Most of the accommodation is positioned to provide guests with wonderful sea views. And the majority of the villas and suites boast their very own pool on a private terrace.

Enjoy local Mediterranean and Greek cuisine across four dining venues. These include a Mediterranean buffet restaurant that's open for breakfast and dinner, and one that serves Greek food for lunch and dinner. Delicious drinks are available in three bars located by the pool, by the beach, and in the lobby.

The three-tiered infinity pool is one of Lesante Cape Resort & Villas' most impressive features. And is joined by a range of other facilities, including a spa, fitness centre, paddle tennis, kids' club, and children's playground. Greek nights are regularly put on and feature a mix of music and dancing.

Things to do at Lesante Cape Resort & Villas

Lean into luxurious relaxation at the resort's pampering spa. And rejuvenate mind and body with a choice of beautiful treatments, including massage and a range of beauty services. The spa also has a sauna, foot bath, and whirlpool.

Akrotiri village is just about as traditionally Greek as it gets and nestles among olive groves on a typical coastal hillside. Its central square is home to a cafe, taverna, shops, church, and even a folklore museum.

You can head in one direction from the resort and walk to Akrotiri village, or go in the other direction for pretty Tsilivi Beach. It's around a 25-minute walk to the sand and pebble stretch, where sun loungers, bars, and watersports await. And a short walk inland will bring you to Fantasy Mini Golf. Tsilivi Water Park is less than a 10-minute drive from Lesante Cape Resort & Villas.
