Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
This plush, family-run boutique hotel is a tranquil oasis. Perched on a little hillock between the mighty peak of Mount Aenos and the glittering sea that laps against Lourdas beach, F Zeen’s elevated position gives spectacular views over dramatic scenery. Its isolated position away from any towns and noise is part of its charm, you will wake up with only the sounds of waves breaking on the shoreline.
An adult-only hideaway, this calming retreat is ideal for couples and is all about the stunning views of its surroundings, framed by lush greenery with pops of pink bougainvillea flowers all around.
Breakfast consists of an expansive selection of Greek and Mediterranean fare, including the traditional fruits, yogurt, honey, breakfast cakes and eggs made to order. The bar also serves wellness drinks in the day that have a focus on naturally purifying and anti-inflammatory ingredients, and crafted by expert mixologists. When the sun goes down the bartenders shake up delicious cocktails and pair dinners with tantalising Kefalonian and Greek wines.
F Zeen has two superb restaurants serving health-focussed snacks and lunches, one of which with a top-quality dinner menu. Guests dine al fresco on balmy evenings making the most of the sunset views from the hotel’s elevated position.
Comprised of 28 chic suites, F Zeen’s rooms are spacious and simply decorated. Using pale wood from the local area and taupe-painted walls with neutral furnishings, the bedrooms’ aesthetic is light and natural. Bathrooms come with rainfall showers and luxury toiletries from Apivita, a Greek manufacturer of natural beauty products.
The bedrooms come in an array of specifications, but most have pretty balconies to take in the stunning views of the ocean vista, particularly striking from the higher floors.
If you’re able to tear yourself away from bronzing beside any of the 3 pools, then the outdoor gym and yoga studio are unmissable. Surrounded by exotic flora, the workout platform exploits its panoramic vista to the fullest, where you can enjoy group or private sessions with expert personal trainers and yogis.
The concierge has encyclopaedic knowledge of the island and things to see and do to see Kefalonia from a different perspective. The concierge can organise hiking and kayaking trips as well as jeep safaris and private yacht charter. The on site spa is petite but plentiful, with many options for massage, facials and beauty treatments. The hotel overlooks Lourdas beach, so golden sands are barely a minute’s walk away through beachside gardens. The popular Koroni and Trapezaki beaches are just 5 and 9-minutes away by car, respectively.
