Grecotel Corfu Imperial, Luxury Beach Resort 

A picturesque hideaway with a great choice of activities

Capturing the splendour of a bygone era, this classically styled resort is tucked away in a picturesque corner of Corfu.

Nestled away on the private Kommeno Peninsula, this secluded resort embodies the romance of summer escapes. You can wander round the Italianate gardens and bask in the warm ocean air, escape to one of the three coves’ sandy beaches or retreat to the two-storey Elixir Beauty Spa. Alternatively, lounge by the elegant Grand Pool, head to the diving centre on the beach or take a sunset boat trip out to enjoy postcard-pretty views – then round off the day with exceptional dining by the waterside.

Dining here ranges from the generous spread of seasonal Greek and international dishes for breakfast and dinner at Mon Repos to romantic waterside dining at Yali. You can also choose to dine at 15 further restaurants at the resort or at the neighbouring hotels LUX ME Daphnila Bay Dassia and Eva Palace which can be reached by luxury sea-shuttle pontoon boats. It’s also easy to sample the delights of Corfu’s historic town as there’s a complimentary bus service twice daily. There’s also a new concept: the Mediterranean promenade and piazza area for refined or casual dining experiences as well as exclusive retail options.

Mon Repos
The resort’s main restaurant, Mon Repos serves lavish buffet breakfasts and dinners inspired by the Mediterranean with a focus on seasonal, local ingredients; settle in on the lush patio for charming sea views.

This fine-dining spot serves elegant French dishes in opulent surroundings, with an impressive wine list.

Yali Seafood
Set on a stilted wooden deck above the sea, it’s hard to beat Yali on the romance front. Indulge in fresh seafood as the lights glitter in the distance and let the low-key music lull you into a daze. There’s also a relaxed beach bar here serving drinks and snacks.

Merlin's Bar Restaurant
Tuck into Asian and Latin American Fusion at this creative, contemporary spot, set on the hotel’s first floor and serving inventive dishes with views over the Kommeno Peninsula. This restaurant is adults-only

Trattoria Wine & Bar
Head here for casual Italian dining and an elegant wine bar serving cheese and charcuterie on an atmospheric, piazza-style patio.

Alkinoos Bar
Start the evening with a cocktail at this relaxed lounge bar, with chilled music and fiery sunsets for a backdrop.

Odysseus Cocktail Terrace
It’s hard to beat the views at this poolside bar, with live music, snacks and drinks served on a terrace overlooking the ocean.

Yali Seafood gets our vote thanks to its idyllic setting above the ocean and a tempting menu of fresh catches.
