Olea Hotel

Recently opened, this brand new, all-suite hotel close to the beach in Zakynthos island, Greece, is an oasis of calm and truly mind-blowing. Set in a secluded hillside location, the Olea All Suite Hotel features 93 cubic villas arranged in one or two-storey whitewashed blocks, along with gardens and various carob tree-shaded lounges. Many have swim-up terraces overlooking the vast 4,000-square-meter communal pool, and some have their own infinity pools. Guests can swim right up to their private balconies, offering views of either the gardens or the bay below. The surrounding landscape, heavily influenced the aesthetic of the interiors, the walls are covered with sand-colored plaster, complimented by earthy-hued bed linen and light timber furnishings.
