The Mediterranean region is home to some of the most beautiful holiday destinations in the world. Famed for its gorgeous sea, countless beaches and wide variety of different islands spanning many countries, the area is naturally a hotspot for fantastic hotels, villas and resorts. Here are a few of our favourites from each country.
On the Greek island of Zakynthos (or Zante to use its Italian name, as Brits often do), there are a huge range of different destinations to choose from. Parts of the island are known as party areas and big on bars and nightlife, but elsewhere you’ll find some of the most relaxing places to stay on the continent. For example, the critically acclaimed Porto Zante offer exclusive luxury villas and a 5-star spa hotel. Situated on a private beach, this fantastic resort has welcomed numerous celebrity guests and showcases some of the best scenery and service the Mediterranean has to offer.
The various Spanish islands in the region cater to a range of different tastes, offering beautiful sandy beaches and quiet escapes, but we also love the city hotels on offer. For example, if you decide to stay in the centre of Palma in Mallorca, there’s nothing better than a room at the Posada Terra Santa, winner of TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Award 2016. The sophisticated and luxurious feel of the hotel is only made more enjoyable by the welcoming and professional staff, so you can relax and focus on enjoying your holiday.
For a more adventurous Mediterranean break, Morocco offers a unique destination where you can absorb some local culture. The Four Seasons resort in Marrakech is absolutely stunning and offers a truly luxurious experience from start to finish, from beautiful palm trees and private pools to huge airy bedrooms with fantastic views. This top-of-the-range hotel comes highly recommend as one of the best places to stay in the region.
All over Cyprus there are different locations offering sea, sun and relaxation with a high standard of accommodation. If you choose to stay in Protaras, the Golden Coast Beach Hotel is famous for its flawless reviews and incredible views. This five-star hotel offers an indoor heated swimming pool as well as multiple outdoor pools and a huge area for relaxing in the sun with professional service on hand at all times.
For something even more refined and classy on the Mediterranean, Monte Carlo is an amazing choice, and the highly rated Hermitage hotel offers five-star service in a massive historical palace. There are few hotels in the world offering this level of stunning architecture along with breathtaking views and top class service all in once place, so this one comes very highly recommended.
