The Olivar Suites

The Olivar Suites offers a stay with a difference, boasting stylish suites in a converted olive oil mill dating from the 18th century. Nestled in a semi-rural location next to Messonghi Beach, it is well suited to couples looking for a romantic getaway in Corfu.

Take a swim in the pool, or relax on one of the sunloungers. Olibar serves local award winning beer and cocktails, inspired by native ingredients and flavours. Devour your drink poolside or enjoy the music and the view of the deep blue Ionian Sea from the bar.

All day dining is offered at Flya. Here the head chef, Spyros Voulismas, has created a menu based on traditional recipes passed down from one generation to the next. Look out for the fire-pit barbecues on the beach. If the fishermen have an excellent catch one day, the chef may throw an impromptu feast. The wine list is extensive, featuring locally sourced options and only the best international bottles.

If you’re on an extra special break with your partner, you should consider booking the ‘dining by the beach’ experience, offering an exclusive evening meal to the sound of the waves, illuminated by torches and moonlight. Or, for something simpler, order the exceptional picnic featuring a range of cheeses, freshly baked bread, fresh fruits and champagne.

Stimulate your senses and invigorate your body and mind at the spa, offering an extensive range of treatments and massages. Couples may be interested in the Aphrodite and Apollo experience, designed to make you feel like the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, and the god of light and healing, Apollo. Alternatively, request your own tailor-made therapy combining elements from different items on the menu.

Visit the indoor exercise room for a rejuvenating workout, boasting a range of cardiovascular and fitness training equipment. Outside Olivar Suites runs yoga, pilates and stretching classes. There is even a personal trainer available on request.

Junior suites are 38-40m2 and feature a king sized bed, air conditioning, satellite TV, a safe, coffee making facilities, a hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers. Plus, you’ll be able to relax on your own spacious first floor balcony overlooking the garden. If you like a spontaneous swim, book a ground floor suite where you’ll have a terrace with your own private pool.

Locally boat trips are available, including one to the old town of Corfu, providing a more romantic way to travel than by road. If, after staying in a former olive oil mill, you want to discover how the product is made, then a working mill open to visitors is just 15 minutes’ drive away. Why not buy some extra virgin olive oil to take home for your friends and family?

A friend and I have recently returned from a week staying at the Olivar Suites in a junior suite with a pool and it was honestly the best hotel we have ever stayed in! We took a private transfer to the hotel and were warmly welcomed at reception, checked in within 10 mins and given a complimentary drink. We were then transported to our suite via an electric type buggy and the driver not only brought our bags into the room but he gave us a walk through of all the gadgets in our room which was very helpful. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the food was excellent. The choices were vast - not only was there a full 'continental' style option (local cheeses, meats, olives, breads etc) but there was a large collection of sweet options (cupcakes, baklava, slices of cake etc) alongside yoghurts and granolas. There were always bottles of freshly squeezed orange and smoothies available too (I tried the peach smoothie one morning and it was amazing!) There was also a cooked breakfast menu - we tried something different each day and everything was fabulous! The other great thing about breakfast is that it's served from 7am-11am so there was no need to rush to get up early every morning - something I very much appreciated as I don't like to have to set alarms when I'm on holiday. On arrival we were given a bottle of wine and a nice fruit plate. Every day we were sent an ice cold bottle of water to our room which was also a nice touch. The cleaners came every day and changed bedding, cleaned the whole room from top to bottom, mopped the floors, replaced towels and cleaned the pool area. They also left u a little treat on your pillow every day! There's a 'do not disturb' switch in your room, which is very handy. The cleaners seemed to work all day as there were a few times we switched it to 'do not disturb' until we went out after lunch and on our return at 7pm our room had been cleaned. We were also given complimentary spa sessions during our stay. The accommodation was fantastic. As already mentioned, we booked a junior suite with a pool and it was the best decision ever! The sun loungers were very comfortable and the pool is bigger than a plunge pool and was so handy. The beach was a 2 minute walk from our room and again the sun loungers were really comfy. For me though, the best bit about the beach was the bar button on the parasol! One push of the button and the staff magically appeared to take your drinks order. What's better than that?! Talking of drinks - I need to highlight how good the cocktails are. We tried many of those on offer and whilst they arent cheap (€15 on average each) I highly recommend trying a few. My favourite was the spicy margarita - unbelievable!!! Outside of the resort, drinks are relatively inexpensive - a carafe of wine was around €6 and dinner for two at any of the tavernas we visited was less than €40 for both of us which included a shared starter, 2 main meals and drinks! The location of the hotel rooms are ideally situated - you are right beside lots of little tavernas/restaurants and a few bars. There's a great supermarket and a few souvenir shops too. There is also a great little bakery that serves fab coffee and beautiful desserts. There's also a bus stop opposite the supermarket where you can catch a bus to Corfu town - it takes about 40 mins and there's great shopping to be had! Aside from the top notch accommodation and food at the Olivar Suites, I need to make reference to the staff, as they are what really makes the place a 5* resort. Whether it was the reception staff, the cleaning staff, the restaurant staff or the bar staff - every single interaction we had was really positive. Nothing was too much trouble for them and personally I felt it was the staff that made the hotel so amazing. They are all an absolute credit to the hotel. If you are thinking of visiting Corfu and you're looking for a 5* experience in a peaceful/relaxing resort book the Olivar Suites - you will not regret it. I'll definitely be back as soon as possible!!

A beautiful luxury holiday

I had a wonderful mini vacation with my friend at the Olivar Suites. The hotel is gorgeous, the staff very friendly and helpful, always with a smile. A must visit for gastronomy lovers and travellers seeking an exquisite place in Corfu.

Without a doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed at

Went in June to celebrate my sister’s birthday, and everything at Olivar Suites exceeded our expectations. The level of service is absolutely unmatched, so is their attention to detail. The rooms are beautiful and calm, spa amazing and restaurant/breakfast one of the best we’ve had. Special mention to the guest relations team for making us feel so special!
