We were in Kefalonia first one. In Petani Bay Hotel we spent one week. It was something so wonderful and fantastic, we have no long experienced. Voula - owner of the hotel was great, as well as the hotel staff. They do for you everything that they see on your eyes :) We had rented a car, so we put... More

We have arrived in Petani in the early evening, the manager Voula has introduce herself and offered as a drink, a eza beer for me, it was awesome and so relaxing drinking a beer in front of the Petani bay. In the meantime someone has driven our car to the parking and moved our luggage inside the room. The room... More

We stayed at Petani Bay last year, almost a year ago, and from the moment we arrived we felt the owners took every effort to make us feel special. The hotel is in an idyllic spot, high above Petani Bay, with wonderful sunsets and a fantastic infinity pool. We were travelling without a car, getting a taxi from the airport,... More

I spent with my family 5 days in this hotel and the first thing to say is about the attention for details you can find there. Room (102) spacious, clean, with a kitchen inside. We were three and spent pleasant nights there. Breakfast is ok with very fresh and good food (both sweet and salty). The view from the hotel... More

The hotel is situated on the quieter side of the Lixouri peninsula with the most exquisite views from the terraces, pool area and I suspect most of the rooms. Our bedroom was more of a suite with a lounge area plus fridge, cooker etc. and really comfortable. Considering the size of the room it was quite surprising that the bathroom... More

I have to prefix my comments by saying that we enjoyed our stay at the Petani Bay - on the whole. However, there are several issues which reduce our rating. The positive [+] points: great view of Petani Bay; friendly & helpful staff; large rooms (suites); large comfortable beds; fridge & cookers in the room; toiletries provided; good choice of... More

The fabulous view of the cliffs turquoise water of Petani Bay cannot be beaten, and the hotel is cleverly designed to ensure a view from every room. Petani Bay Hotel could be described as a modern boutique style, our suite was spacious and comfortable with a compact balcony. The kingsize bed was comfortable and a pillow menu was available. The...

Not much I can add about the Petani Bay - lovely room, lovely grounds, very welcoming staff and hosts. We will be going back. Couple of suggestions for amazing food nearby - both taverna's at Petani Bay beach and the Petani taverna at the top of the road. For an unspoilt quiet beach and more stunning sea food visit Altheras.... More

What a wonderful, beautiful place to stay. We had an amazing 5 days here in May and it literally made our holiday. We had spent the previous 9 days at The Apollonion and though it was very good, this was the Kefalonian experience we were looking for. As soon as we stepped into the hotel and were warmly welcomed by... More
