Lesante Blu Exclusive Beach Resort is surrounded by spectacular views of the Ionian Sea. Located in the village of Tragaki, the all-suite Lesante Blu — built in 2017 — is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. This pristine getaway in the stunning Ionian islands is a one-of-a-kind experience, offering exclusivity, peace of mind and five-star comfort.

The hotel’s ‘all about you’ mentality is evidenced in the private pools, adults-only policy, state-of-the-art suites and discreet staff. The selection of restaurants offering guests creative Mediterranean dishes by the sea, a secluded beach, 24/7 room service and a private heliport all add up to a unique holiday experience.

The vibrant turquoise colour of the sea is Zakynthos’ most famous attribute, yet it’s not the only one. All-day sunshine, picturesque shores and the island’s spirited heart unite to give travellers an unforgettable experience, one they won’t want to end.

Whether guests enjoy being at the centre of it all or prefer a peaceful, more secluded option, Zakynthos has it all. Shipwreck Beach — also known as Navagio — is one of the most famous Greek beaches. It’s actually a cove, and is sometimes referred to as Smugglers Cove, as the wreck of an old smuggler’s ship rests on the golden sand. Navagio can be found on the west side of the Ionian island, close to Anafonitria village, and is well worth a visit.

Zakynthos’ proud history is visible all around. Amazing architectural monuments are an integral part of the island, contributing greatly to its charm. Many important historical figures have lived here, including Dionysios Solomos, who composed the Greek national anthem. Fascinating Zakynthian stories come to life around every corner, taking visitors on a journey to the island’s charming past.

Zakynthos’ cuisine is as healthy as it is tasty — since all the ingredients are homegrown, or plucked from the waters of the Ionian. The finest vegetables, freshest fish and a wide variety of locally sourced products showcase the health-boosting qualities of Mediterranean cuisine.
