Halkidiki is a region that Greeks and the global jet-set have long tried to keep secret – this is your chance to win a three-night stay at Ekies All Senses Resort, and discover it for yourself.
Halkidiki’s three-pronged peninsula – located just below Greece’s second city of Thessaloniki – is one of the most underrated regions in the country. With beaches to rival (and dare we whisper it, often surpass) those of the Greek islands, and a rich culinary scene to match anywhere in the Mediterranean, it’s a wonder global discovery hasn’t happened sooner.
But things are changing, and you can be a part of it. We’ve teamed up with Ekies All Senses Resort, a Design Hotels member, to give you (and your plus one) the chance to win a three-night stay at the stylish resort.
Boasting barefoot luxury at its finest, the eco-friendly design here lends itself to lazy days sipping ouzo under a poolside umbrella, or time out enjoying some spa therapy – we suggest the herbal pouch massage where fresh herbs from the resort’s garden are used in the treatment.
The organic ethos is evident throughout the resort – from the spa to poolside, restaurants to bedrooms – as neutral tones and natural materials are cleverly fused with fun, contemporary design touches, such as the bedroom walls with Aesop’s fables written across them. Phillip Starck and Achille Castiglioni pieces are scattered throughout the property, and cosy outdoor nooks are the perfect place to curl up with a good book.
Throughout each, and indeed in every last corner of the hotel, traditional Greek elements are fused with modern, eco-led, design. This is a place for the uber-cool holidaymaker with a conscience.
The mood continues in the kitchens, too. Fine dining restaurant, Bubo, serves up modern takes on traditional Mediterranean dishes. With one dinner included in your prize package, you’ll have a chance to sample chef Dimitris Pamporis’ dishes. Don’t miss the award-winning Greek salad.
You probably won’t see much reason to leave the resort, but with Mount Athos and many Natura 2000 protected landscapes on your doorstep, not to mention the cosmopolitan city of Thessaloniki, it’s worth it. Just as soon as you can peel yourself off that sun lounger…
What does the prize include?
- Three nights in a Junior Suite
- Half board for two people
- One complimentary dinner for two at Bubo Fine Dining
- One spa treatment per person
