Porto Zante Villas & Spa
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Tragaki
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Like many reviewers, we were surprised at just how small the Porto Zante resort actually is. However this turned out to be a really positive attribute. We have stayed in numerous 5 star resorts around the world but Porto Zante genuinely provided us with the most personalised service we have ever experienced - much better than the Butler service you now get in some high-end resorts. The staff were friendly, courteous, discreet and unfailingly helpful. Our villa was clean, properly serviced twice daily and the villa pool was gently heated. The choice of food was perhaps a bit limited but everything was prepared to order and of very high quality. You could have massage in your villa or in an outdoor area overlooking the sea - fabulous ! We went to Porto Zante in need of a really relaxing break and we got exactly that. We will return.

What can I say to give this place enough credit?!

If you're looking for high end luxury and the most personable service on the planet, please do not hesitate on staying at Porto Zante.

We hired a 1 bedroom villa, and we were absolutely stunned at how beautiful it was upon our arrival. We arrived around midday so got settle in and had lunch brought to our villa. A table by the pool was immediately set for lunch, gorgeous fresh seafood, chilled wine, gorgeous greek salads....the food here is amazing, locally sourced and always cooked from scratch. They do inform you to order 45 mins or so before you want to eat, we were pleased they did as this ensured we weren't left hungry at any point on our stay (like you could anyone, the portions were always huge and every meal we ordered they threw in a few extras (tzatziki, prawns, etc)

The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, and a special mention to Stavrula, who was always on hand to get us anything we needed and was always SO cheery. Thanks Stavrula!!

The best part of all of this was privacy! The villas are tucked away, not signposted (ensure you have the address to give to a cab if you leave), and no one can see into your villa from the others.

We left a couple of time to check out the local bars, restaurants, etc. If I went back, I don't think I would need to again, everything you could want for pure relaxation was right there. You can even get your massage by your own pool if you prefer (although the one thing i'd suggest improving is there, we asked the our masseuse to be a bit firmer and work out the aches and pains and never really felt like she did. But that's SERIOUS nit picking!! It was still a great massage!)

I am beyond shocked there's even one poor review on TripAdvisor for Porto Zante, complains about "The beach was too far away and down all these steps" had me concerned before I left. It's no more than 25-30 steps! :)

I know I will 100% come back here sometime when I need some much needed R&R.

A HUGE thank you to all the staff! You really took the weight of the world off our shoulders, and we can back more relaxed than we knew possible!

All the best

P.s. Forgotten your gorgeous dogs name (I called him Alfred cause I thought he looked like one), but give him a tummy rub from us!!

If you are looking for a completely private villa with incredible sea front views and the amenities of a luxury hotel, then Porte Zante Villas is the perfect choice! They have employed a lovely staff who made our stay unforgettable. Stavrula is an amazing host who was forever smiling and coordinating everything from meals to excursions to water sports and activities for our children. The food is so delicious that we chose to eat every meal at the villa (fresh fish, salads, Greek pastries, etc). If you want a wonderful massage, ask for Maria. The only criticism I would have is that the area of the island outside of the villa isn't anything special and you may hear an occasional plane fly over in the early morning hours.

We were slightly sceptical to book at first as we couldn't find any agent or person that had actually been to this resort so we were dependent on tripadvisor comments and this is part of the reason why I felt compelled to add a post. We have just got back from a most wonderful 8 nights at Porto Zante and can highly recommend.
The resort is absolutely stunning and most importantly for us was extremely private with your own pool; this could be a negative for some people as there isn't the action of a communal pool but was exactly what we wanted. The steps then lead down to a gorgeous but small private beach which you more or less have to yourselves and the sea is clear and stunning.
The villas themselves are lovely, spacious, clean, air conditioned, and kept immaculately at all times.
The staff were fantastic- the host (a lovely lady called Stavrula) is on the end of the phone at all times and nothing is too much trouble be it service or advice on travel round the island or local restaurants. (Taxis were available but also the resort driver was very often free to take us around and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport). You can dine in your villa if you want to and we had breakfast there every morning. The bar / restaurant is beautifully set on a balcony overlooking the sea and the food was excellent although they like you to pre order a few hours before which wasn't an issue for us- all of the meat and fish we had was excellent.
Given I would imagine most guests spend most of their time at the resort there is the potential for the resort to overcharge on food and drink but this absolutely was not the case and they are always very happy to provide complimentary water.
Its difficult to find anything to be critical about but if we had to find something we would say the massage wasn't great although the massage area is a beautiful veranda looking over the sea. Also depending what you want there isn't a huge amount of activity at the resort- there is no gym (although they will bring some basic equipment to your villa) or tennis court etc. We loved the resort as it is so private but if you want to meet people and mingle this may not be the place.....the only communal areas of bar / restaurant and beach were always very quiet.
Would highly recommend going down to Laganas (about a 30 min drive or 25 euro cab) and renting your own boat for half a day (c100 euros) and going round turtle island, and then also driving to the north of the island (about a 45 min drive) and hiring a boat to the blue caves and shipwreck beach.
All in all we absolutely loved this resort and if you want a luxurious but very private resort with amazing service then you should visit Porto Zante- we will definitely be going back!

Porto Zante is a very special place. You have the freedom and privacy of a villa, with the wonderful service and choice of a hotel. The views, staff and food are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. The private boat trip around the island was superb and worth every penny.
Overall, Porto Zante is unique. I dont know anywhere else that can offer such discreet luxury with 5 star service and more. It is the perfect place to re-group as a family.

Room Tip: they all have a sea view.

We stayed in the Grand Presidential Spa villa which did not disappoint. Beautiful, spacious, tastefully decorated and immaculately cleaned daily. The view - spectacular. But the service was exceptional. Rula and her team were seamless in their attentiveness, care and attention to detail. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was absolutely perfect. Having stayed at 5 and 7 star resorts and hotels all around the world, we can honestly say that this service was the best we've experienced so far. Fantastic!

If you are looking for a place where you could lay whole day on the beach and then in the evening go to the bar to have something to drink, this is not going to be the right place for you. If you are looking for luxurious private villa with 5* hotel services, this is the right place to go. Outstanding service, delicious cuisinie and mainly totally discrete and private place. Whole philosophy of this resort is based on personal approach, feeling like home and complete privacy. I have not experienced such a brilliant service so far in any hotel (including Four Seasons). One negative thing is that you can hear during the day airplanes landing and taking off and sometimes you can hear inside the villa your neighbors but those are probably the only negative things I can say about it. If you are looking for a place where you can escape from reality and be only with whoever you travel with, this is the right place!
