The hotel was amazing!
I travel all the time, spending from 3-5 nights a week sleeping in different beds / hotels! For years my job has been 80% travelling, so I have stayed in big international chains, to luxurious resorts, to massive complexes, to remote boutique hotels.... Skamnos was of the best ever!
Although we went for the snowboarding adventure, we ended up spending one day just in the hotel! With an amazing breakfast area, where you feel you are sitting outside, an indoor heated pool overlooking the valley, billiard room, gym, massage room, spa, sauna and cinema... we had to explore the hotel too.
Our room was very roomy, with a fireplace, a balcony looking onto the mountain tip with the lifts... We were greater with the free grazing horses and the hotels 5 month old puppy jumping around.... What a free feeling we were embraced with!
The hotel was the closest to the slopes possible... Just a short 10 minute drive...! The main village was also close by and with lots of tavernas just minutes away.... Good times were also possible to find in other nearby villages!
Winter, snow fun on the slopes!
Summer, mountain bike downhill fun!
The hotel management was incredibly friendly and knew exactly when to get involved and when to just let us get on with our day... The service was amazing, the rooms were very clean and the heating was always on!
My boy friend and I are not Greek, yet we choose to live in Greece and commute abroad for work. Our weekends we explore Greece and Skamnos is on the list for many more return trips....
Skamnos is one of the few hotels in the world we will go back to with huge excitement!
