Why Stay Here?
The ebullient family behind the Lesante Collection are continuing in their mission to shine a luxurious spotlight on the isle of Zakynthos with the arrival of Lesante Cape in May 2022. Located within the historic Akrotiri village surrounded by rolling fields of countryside on the eastern coast, the village-style resort offers an idyllic authentic retreat featuring a central square and unique access to a private beach.
Lesante Cape comprises 55 sophisticated suites and 10 villas inspired by the traditional architecture of yesteryear – from sea view rooms with private balconies to regal one-, two- and three-bedroom villas overlooking the surrounding vineyards. Neutral colours, natural fibres and local art will be at the heart of the hotel’s soothing interiors.
Epicureans will get a true taste of traditional fare in one of three restaurants headed by Greek culinary marvel Aggelos Bakopoulos. For those who are seeking complete tranquillity during their holiday, Armonia wellness centre will provide a relaxing refuge for treatments and therapies harking back to ancient Mediterranean healing practices, whilst a dedicated Agora is the heart of the village with its artisanal shops, taverna and cultural museum.
Lesante Cape will offer a curation of exhilarating excursions – from venturing into protected marine parks to mountain hiking – and enriching cultural experiences – spanning ancient architectural tours and unearthing Zakynthos’ illustrious heritage within the myriad of museums that span the isle. The hotel also encourages guests to immerse themselves in the local culture – enjoying specialist Greek nights with live music, learning about the region’s unique viniculture through wine-tasting gatherings, farm-to-fork cookery lessons and bespoke introductions to inimitable local wares and the producers behind them at the Agora.
All elements of the property have fully considered the local environment, from an onsite Bio farm and ecologically designed buildings nestled within purposely natural and untouched surroundings, to natural and earth friendly products used within the sumptuous spa.
