For those who like more active holidays, the all-inclusive hotel in Dassia Bay offers one of the best selections of sports and entertainment programmes. There’s also plenty to see outside our Dassia Bay hotel: the French, Venetian and British occupations have left their mark on the architecture in Corfu Town whilst many of the inland villages continue in true Ionian style.
Thanks to its outstanding sports facilities, variety of themed restaurants, and luxurious thalassotherapy spa, the Daphnila Bay Thalasso has become a favourite among Grecotel guests. Grecotel’s all-inclusive programme ensures a care-free holiday. Indulge in everything your heart desires: sumptuous meals, poolside cocktails, and sinfully delicious snacks.
Corfu town is only short 10 minutes journey away.
The town displays a unique architecture which was strongly influenced from different dominations such as French, Venetian or the English ones. You can admire many of its elegant mansions, beautiful fortresses and imposing buildings.
The most admirable sightseeing spots include:
Beach & Pools
The beautiful sandy beaches are located at the bottom of the hill surrounded by olive and pine trees.
With a wide range of bars and restaurants it is the best place where to relax or enjoy some activities provided by the entertainment team.
Daphnila Bay also offers 2 great outdoor freshwater swimming pools, including a small children’s pool. Free towels are available both at the swimming pool and the beach. Both pools are also surrounded by sunbeds which creates a perfect sunbathing area easily accessible from the main hotel building.
Many regular guests prefer to be situated in the main building overlooking the mature gardens and Ionian Sea whilst others insist that a garden bungalow room hidden amongst the olive trees is their idea of holiday heaven.
Whatever your choice in our accommodation, you can be sure that your stay will be memorable.
