Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Set right on Argostoli’s glimmering waterfront, overlooking the turquoise Ionian sea, the Kefalonia Grand is exactly as its name suggests. The magnificent building is polished from the ground to ceiling, quite literally - using contemporary buffed concrete as its floor and wall coverings and peppered with artwork, clay pots and woven baskets that take a modern twist on traditional furnishings. A true hedonist’s hideaway, the luxurious Kefalonia Grand Hotel provides guests the perfect base to explore the vibrant town, beautiful beaches and spectacular countryside.
An eclectic mix of Greek and Mediterranean flavours, the hotel’s chic terrace restaurant serves up the freshest local fare for breakfast and dinner, enjoyed with a stunning view over the harbour.
The hotel’s Grand Café is the place to be for a morning’s hit of espresso, tea or juices and smoothies. When dusk sets in, the café serves up tantalising cocktails in an ambient setting against the gentle strains of lounge music.
Comprising 42 brand new rooms and suites, the contemporary bedrooms are beautifully simple. With floors made of forged cement, plush white linen sheets and cool furnishings, the Kefalonia Grand is bright, light and bang on trend.
The most premium rooms have balconies with views over the water and space for seating, and the master suite includes a jacuzzi tub.
The port of Argostoli, which has a ferry connection with pretty nearby town of Lixouri, is just a 4-minute walk away. Argostoli, the island’s cute capital, has many cultural offerings such as museums, monuments, boutique shopping and traditional eateries.
While there is no pool at the hotel, numerous beaches are just minutes away by car - Makris Gialos (3.2 km), Kalamia (2.5 km) and Fanari (2.5 km) with its impressive, colonnaded lighthouse, Saint Theodore Lantern. The hotel offers bike and car rental to explore these beauty spots.
The friendly and knowledgeable concierge can offer many tours such as wine-tasting, a guide to ancient landmarks and private sailing trips that pick you up on the harbourfront right outside the hotel’s door. The Kefalonia Grand also offers body and facial treatments and massage in its compact yet cool spa room.
