Hotel with a great sea view and a good infrastructure (pool, restaurant, bar, etc.) close to Petani beach. The rooms are very spacious, modern and clean. The service is very kind and professional. Due to the location a car is needed for dinner outside of the hotel.

We had a wonderful time at the petani bay! Staff are so friendly and helpful. They knew it was our honeymoon and made us feel so special! We were welcomed with a drink of our choice while they got our stuff from the car. They also put some beautiful flowers in our room. Beds are so comfy and rooms are... More

Wonderful small boutique hotel sitting on top of a cliff overlooking the dramatic Petani Bay. Manager Voula and her superb staff offer a genuinely personalised service and exude a warmth that you don't get in chain hotels. The splendid Petani Bay is just a 3 min drive down the hill, and Lixouri is a mere 20 min drive away. You... More

We stayed in this wonderful hotel for 5 nights, wich was maybe a little bit too long, considering it's located in the middle of nowhere, and you have to drive at least 20 km to get somewhere, apart from the nice beach below the hotel. But the staying was fantastic! One of the most beautiful views we've ever had in... More

…. the serenity of the landscape, the discrete but always attending staff, the exquisite Greek-Mediterranean gastronomy, the modernly decorated room, the comfortable bed, the breathtaking balcony view, the sunset from the pool made our 6day vacation a week to remember for life. The hotel was highly recommended by friends, but what we experienced was beyond any expectation. The Petani beach... More

My family and I visited Petani bay in July 2015 and had the most amazing time. The hotel itself is very small, I believe it must have less than 15 rooms? Each room has an incredible view over the mountains and ocean which was great. The view itself from the hotel is breathtaking, over petani bay, and you see the... More
