We visited this hotel for our family vacations. The hotel is located just a minute outside of the beautiful and picturesque Fiscardo, and right above Emblissi beach, with tirquoise clean waters . The hotel has an excellent service, very polite, warm people that will do everything to accomodate all your needs, especially if you are travelling with children. The design... More

Spent 10 nights here and had a lovely, relaxing time. Well run hotel. Dedicated staff. Excellent spa with good choice of treatments. Good food but mainly we ate out as so many restaurants nearby to choose . Car essential if you want to visit other parts of Island, but I believe the hotel has a car you can hire if... More

Overall we had an excellent 4-night stay here. Positive points: The hotel is nicer than it appears in photos online. The indigenous plantings are very well done and moderate the appearance of the buildings. The terrace with its infinity pools and view is extraordinary and the restaurant there is the real deal (we had three out four dinners there). The... More

Some things are important in a hotel, some things are not. Important things include comfortable beds and pillows. Unimportant things include a sushi bar and on site casino. For an exemplar in providing all the important things perfectly the Emelisse is extremely tough to beat. Objectively I've seen bigger, more impressive breakfast buffets, larger DVD libraries and more facilities, but... More

We chose the emelisse as the venue for our wedding after visiting on holiday last year. We immediately fell in love with the setting and atmosphere. (The hotel takes on a different feel in the evening with candles and lanterns lighting up every corner). Haris and his team of fantastic staff made our day so special. Every detail was taken... More

Nestled into the rock edge overlooking Fiskardo this hotel is just beautiful. With two infinity pools, a spa, direct access to a rocky beach, it feels luxurious and open. One of the best features of the hotel is all the accommodation is spread out, accessible with your own front door key so no need to go through a central reception.... More

Having been there last week and just re read the previous comments of others most of what the place is about has been said. Sure the place would benefit from less little ones running about and the family ball games in the main pool. The hotel doesn't have a method of dealing with the dreaded beach towels locking in the...

We have just returned from our 4th stay at this hotel in 6 years; sadly this time standards have slipped, rooms and gardens are in need of refurbishment and updating. Also they now allow children below the age of 12, whereas in the past they used to state 'not suitable for children below 12', hence no longer a quiet peaceful... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE HOTELSituated above Emplisis bay overlooking a unique painting of nature, this resort is hidden out of sight, among cedars and cypress trees. From an architect’s point of view a finely tuned pallet of multicultural influence creates an environment of high aesthetics and post-modern design. Space consultant Sophocles Maraveyas has combined an ambience of serenity with original pieces of furniture and local architecture elements. Note that this is the only establishment in Greece to use teak wood items to furnish rooms, all painted in subtle pale shades, and decorated with pictures from artwork photographer Tatiana Karapanagioti, highlighted by the cleverly hidden support lights.HOTEL LOCATIONHotel is located above Emplisis bay, close to the picturesque port and fishing village of Fiskardo, which is within close proximity; it will take not more than 15 minutes to reach, walking distance. The hotel lies just 1h 15m away from Cephalonia airport and the ferry port of Sami is just 50 minutes away. It is 60klm from Poros port, your destination port if you travel from Kyllini.
