We did not get off to a good start. The official google maps location puts the hotel on the other side of town. After 15 minutes trying to locate it, we had to ask to be directed back to the north. Then on arrival the phone on the gate to the car park was not working, so we were stuck... More

I agree with everything reviewer Linrob has set out. We were there for a week 14th to 21st Aug. we were unable to get a shaded sunbed all week. The knock on problem with all the children is that the parents 'reserve/commandeer' lot of the woefully inadequate supply of sun beds for their children as well as themselves. They reserve... More

We have recently returned from a weeks holiday at the emelisse. We stayed as a couple on half board basis. The hotel welcome is good and whilst they try and keep it all laid back and relaxed it's a bit difficult finding out where everything is on the site, a map would help and a few more details. Initially they... More

One of the most amazing hotels I have ever stayed!! The setting of the hotel is amazing, set in beautiful gardens, with two-storey buildings, like little houses, against the blue sea. There was the most out-of-this-world infinity pool, overlooking the sea, with wooden huge loungers, and staff to serve you at every wish. The room was excellent, spacious, with simple... More

We had an amazing week at the Emelisse and I would highly recommend it. It is a beautiful and relaxing place, but there is also lots to do in the area - we rented a boat, drove down to Assos and went paddle boarding.

My girlfriend and I had been looking forward to this 7 day holiday in Kefalonia for many months having booked it whilst both serving in Kabul, Afghanistan. I was in contact with the Emelisse prior to the holiday and asked if there was anything they could do to make our stay that little more special, and my emails had definitely... More

A superb hotel with everything you would expect in terms of service and comfort from a 5* establishment. Even in the height of August there felt like room and space around the ample grounds. The one minor gripe would be the amount of children, which is a little surprising in a Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel.

My wife and I spent a week at the Emelisse in July 2014 and cannot fault it. It looks amazing, has brilliant views across the sea - 2 mins away from Emblisi Beach - the pools are great (there's a quiet adult pool we spent most of our time at and big, bustling kids pool by the pool bar restaurant...

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.
