5-star, boutique hotel, suite-only, within a luxury family resort and natural reserve
It was the dream of two men over 40 years ago, and today ownership remains within their families. Another property planned in the next few years, always with a stronger than ever commitment to protect this amazing natural reserve.
History & Story
In the late 60’s two visionary men believed in the high potential of Sani’s land, who used to belong to monks from Mount Athos. They fell in love with the kilometres of immaculate white sandy beaches, the shallow and clear waters of the Aegean Sea, the luxuriant nature and the bird sanctuary. Porto Sani is among the most luxurious properties of the resort. Sani Resort was repeatedly voted and rewarded as one of the best family luxury resorts in Europe and in the World.
