Sani Dunes is the newest resort to open at the 5 star luxury Sani Resort in Halkidiki in Greece.
If you are not familiar with Sani Resorts, imagine the most beautiful Greek village wrapped around a harbor and surrounded with boutiques and restaurants, many of which are à la carte.
You can book on a half board or full board basis and take part in the dine around programme. This allows you to book any buffet restaurant or tailored menu restaurants included in the price, or an a la carte restaurant for a supplement. And with a choice of 22 restaurants the choice is extensive.
What appeals to me about Sani is that there is a place for everyone. And Sani Beach is perfect for families with small children offering an abundance of kids facilities and a kids club. Whilst Sani Asterias offers more upscale luxury, and Porto Sani has more of an urban feel to it, being located just of the buzzing marina.
Sani Dunes is aimed at families with older children giving it a more grown up feel.
So is perfect for chill out weeks with teenagers. Or indeed sneaking away for a romantic couples break. It is a short walk from the marina and all the bars and restaurants. Thus being near to all the action, yet feeling secluded and tranquil giving you the best of both worlds.
The pool and beach area at Sani Dunes
The resort has its own private beach, which has a water sports center with water sports available at a small extra charge. And two HUGE and extremely beautiful pools. As Sani Dunes has only 136 luxurious rooms there is plenty of space around the pools to prevent that crowded feeling. Also with all suites having loungers and patio furniture, the dilemma is not is there a seat, but where to sit, Pool, beach or patio? Yes, that really is the biggest decision I want to face on a chilled out holiday.
Where to eat at Sani Dunes resort?
As well as having the option to dine in any of the Sani Resorts, Dunes boasts its own collection of restaurants. The Beach House à la carte, which serves the most amazing breakfast with the best view ever and also offers and a la carte evening menu. Whilst Fresco and Dunes bar and restaurant in the main building. We dined at Dunes with our dine around package and the food was incredible.
Private tours and some activities are included in the price
We took the sunset cruise, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the sunset at sea as you sip champagne. The views are breathtaking and i gives you the perfect opportunity to get some gorgeous pictures. And the Volvo tour takes you to the village of Afitos to experience the real Greece and also enjoy the views for Cape Podisi.
The teen facilities
Ozone teen club is located just between the resort and the marina. It is in the perfect spot for teens to be able to nip for a game of giant pool. Or indeed play fifa in the games area. It is also a great place to hang out and meet friends. There are also sports courts over at Sani Beach. And should it be too hot to walk you can always order a buggy to take you across.
There is an on-site mini market and deli for dining in.
This is a wonderful option should you fancy a light lunch on your patio over a bottle of wine. Sani resorts have made it easy for you to dine in should you want to. The mini market has a great selection of bread, meat and snacks. Plenty of soft drinks, a good selection of wine and ice-lollies to keep the tweens happy.
Whilst the deli has a wonderful Mediterranean choice of meats, breads and cheeses.
I LOVED Sani Dunes
It offers everything I look for in a holiday, luxury, fine dining and somewhere to go for an evening walk and enjoy a cocktail. A beautiful beach to spend long hot days listening the sea in the background, and pools that you just don’t want to leave.
There is also so much for the boys to do. I love the grown up feel of the resort. And although Sani Resorts are lifting the over 12s policy for 2018 which means younger guests will be welcome. I feel that families with younger children will still want to opt for Sani Beach due the proximity of the park and mini clubs. But it is nice for them to have the option going forward.
