This is our second visit to this EXCEPTIONAL hotel. We made reservations for our next visit before settling the bill, that’s how incredible the service, food and atmosphere, owners and staff are. Please, note my selection of the first picture. Yianni and Voula are the owners. I ask all my readers, to consider when is the last time you sought out the amazing hospitality team to get pics with before leaving? Yes, this island is special, and special to me. My father was born a couple miles from Petani Bay. The island is one of the most beautiful in Greece. Along with the other Ionian islands, it is a hidden gem. The reason we experienced every part of the island was due to the expert recommendations of Voula, who’s knowledge helped provide us with “concierge service” both on and off property. They know every restaurant and owner by name, they suggest itineraries and put every little touch (including having your favorite bottle at the bar) into your stay. As a hospitality professional with 35 years of experience, these are the people I spend my money and time with. They are the best in the business and I recommend this property to anyone looking for the best in Greek Hospitality! Yianni and Voula THANK YOU! You made our vacation exceptional and nobody does it better!!!

And, the perfect way to experience Kefalonia. Voula and John are sensational hosts with fabulous suggestions for excursions throughout the island. So, you can explore great finds such as Fiskardo, Lixori, Shipwreck Island and more with suggestions for the best routes and restaurants along the way. And then, immerse yourself in their infinity pool with a sensational sunset view. The food onsite is superb and the hospitality is top shelf. We know we'll be back.

My wife and I visited Petani Bay Hotel as part of our Honeymoon tour of Kefalonia, Zante and Mainland Greece. We can honestly say that our stay in Petani Bay was the highlight for us both! We arrived later than planned, but the lovely owners, John and Voula, welcome us with huge smiles and a well-needed welcome drink. We met their wonderful dog, Sandy, who was incredibly friendly and never a problem throughout our 5 night stay. John and Voula were superb hosts. We always found them very easy to communicate with and they were keen to help us in any way that they could. They were even kind enough to post something we had left at the hotel after our departure! They also arranged all of our travel and even offered on occasion to drive/collect us from nearby places. All of the staff were fantastic throughout, they were very friendly and helpful. They patiently taught us Greek when we asked them too, gave us some wonderful recommendations to help us on the rest of our Greek Adventure and answered all of our questions quickly and effectively. The food at the hotel is great - although it is fair to say it is more expensive than some of the nearby tavernas. Unfortunately we travelled without a car and so were restricted to eat in the places nearby. However, there are a few tavernas nearby serving local Greek dishes which are delicious and inexpensive. Petani Beach itself is awesome too! Beautiful crystal clear waters with polished white stone beaches. If you visit, be sure to hire some kayaks or a pedal boat to get around to some of the more secluded beaches as these are a lovely place to relax. We loved our stay in Petani Bay Hotel and wouldn’t change a thing about the time we spent there. We highly recommend visiting and we are looking forward to returning at some point in the future to celebrate an anniversary!

We have recently returned from 11 nights here and it’s a 5 from us ! On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Voula and her team and we had a drink to start unwinding. The suite we had was lovely. A sitting area, 2 doors over a balcony, tv with Netflix, table/chairs and a new kitchenette with microwave, tea and coffee, kettle and cups/glasses as well as a fridge with a bottle of water in it. There was a welcome message and small gifts as well as a bottle of wine on ice. The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable, as were the pillows which you don’t often get in Greece we have found. The bathroom was big enough, had his and hers sinks, a power/rain style shower and lots of room in the shower area. One small niggle was the curtains were not dark enough and lots of light came in the rooms but this is common in many Greek resorts. The bar area was nicely furnished and had lots of shade. George was very helpful behind the bar. The pool was lovely and there were many areas around to lay out on sun beds and the bigger double beds, it never seemed overcrowded. All the staff were very helpful and friendly including the cleaner and the domestic staff. Voula was very approachable, friendly and helpful. She took me took the local shop for supplies and also picked us up after a meal/drinks at one of the restaurants at Petani - see other reviews. We also got a lift from George into town 1 day also. Great service ! We didn’t eat at the restaurant on site but we had breakfast everyday and there was a decent choice. Douwe egberts coffee, various teas, honey, yoghurt, fruit, eggs and omelettes as well as various cakes and fresh oranges to juice. There were plenty of seats to relax around the place and Voula was a font of knowledge for the island. We found the Wi-fi very hit and miss daily and the music played a little repetitive. It’s a great place to stay - the nearby beach/area is very good too and whilst it’s by the side of the road down to the beach, generally it wasn’t too noisy. A very relaxing stay and highly recommended for a chilled time and no kids ! Thanks Voula and the team. One day we shall return!
