Lichnos Beach Hotel & Suites: A diamond in the Ionian Sea
Posted on 14/05/2017 by Demi Antonopoulou
When I was searching for possible locations for my summer holidays, I had already decided that I wanted to go someplace quiet where I could relax and enjoy the Greek sea, sun, food and of course the Greek hospitality. So while searching on the Internet, I came across Lichnos Beach Hotel & Suites and I can assure you this one is worth a visit.
Lichnos Beach is a 5 star luxury beach resort located in the northwestern part of Greece, only 5 minutes from the touristic and beautiful town of Parga. The hotel is an oasis built on the sandy beaches of Lichnos, where you can enjoy crystal clear waters and a breathtaking view.
Its contemporary design with the white interiors gives you a sense of relaxation and harmony while all the rooms offer a fantastic view of the Ionian Sea. So, even if you can’t afford a hotel suite you can still get your dreamy vacations. Moreover, the hotel offers a variety of amenities including restaurants, swimming pool, bars and a private beach for all hotel guests with the possibility of reserving your own “beach bed”. Yes, that’s right, you can have your own bed on the beach!
The breakfast, which was delicious, is served next to the beach, something that I personally loved. For those with a family, there is also a playground for the children and a garden where you can relax and enjoy the stunning view.
I love action, even when I am on vacation and here I found lots of fun things to do: enjoy the sea and practice water sports, like water ski and Jet Ski. The experience was amazing and I didn’t want it to be over.
During our 5-night stay in Lichnos Beach, I didn’t feel the need to go anywhere else. I had everything I needed right here! Great beach, great food, great activities… Why should I leave the premises?
However, after a few days of relaxation, I decided to explore everything that was near our hotel. So I visited Parga, the town closest to Lichnos and only 5 minutes from the hotel. I was amazed! The town is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen; very vibrant but also very picturesque, like it belonged to another era.
In Parga is a very small village yet you can find restaurants with exquisite Greek cuisine, numerous cocktail bars that offer a spectacular view and many little shops that are all waiting to be explored. It’s the perfect choice for a night out with friends and family.
For those who love history, you can also visit the castle of Parga that was built back in the 11th century and today houses a multitude of ancient treasures of Greek culture.
Before leaving Parga and the Lichnos luxury resort and having to go back to my daily routine, I decided to do something even more memorable: visiting the Acherontas river is a must for all nature lovers, because of its outstanding beauty. I decided to do some rafting in the river although horse riding was also a choice. Being surrounded by nature, hearing only the sound of water and birds made me feel like I was lost in paradise. I definitely, definitely did not want to return to my noisy city. Helas, it had to be done. But I will keep the precious memory of this wonderful vacation forever in my heart!
