Travel: Grecian Boutique Bliss

Ekies All Senses Poolside

For some, the perfect family holiday begins with a hotel that doesn’t consist of all inclusive buffets, water slides and kids clubs. If that’s you, you’re in luck – Ekies All Senses Resort is a Greek hideaway that’s a boutique, baby friendly haven.

With an emphasis on design features, their eco-philosophy and super friendly staff (who are happy to whisk baby away to play), Ekies is a relaxed bolthole perfect for those who want to laze on the beach all day. And not move. Until baby swallows too much sand…

There’s the pool, beach, treehouse, open air spa and playground to explore, plus a beautiful beach in the next cove. The food at the two beachside restaurants is delicious; no reason to go off site to eat. They serve food for the kids all day and night, which is essential when you have a baby who’s not sure if they’re coming or going with meal times. Surviving holidays with a baby can be a challenge at times, but touches like this make it much easier.

Located in tiny little costal village Vourvourou Bay, Chalkidiki, the Ekies rooms come in varying shapes and sizes: it’s worth getting a suite with more space than the standard rooms. If peace and tranquility are what you’re after, Ekies is the place for you. We can see why Condé Nast Traveller have named it one of Europe’s Best Secret Seaside Hotels.
