Danai Beach Resort & Villas 5*
A member of “the Leading Hotels of the World”
Within the numbered days holidaymakers find a Forever-Home at the Family Riefenstahl´s once private Family-estate which owners Mrs Danai and Mr Otto Riefenstahl continue to personally perfect with heartfuls of investment. Every Guest is a witness and every employee a reflection behind which and giving it value stands the family, radiating the warm Greek hospitality inherited from Homeric times when one’s worth was measured by how he treated a guest.
After a mere 50 minutes- drive from the Macedonia Airport Thessaloniki SKG, a majestic gate opens to verdant pine trees collonaded the 40.000 SQM aerial of lush greens and to a pristine 315m Private Beach. Natural sunlight floods the 60 Suites and Villas or glitters from the Private Pools, the Main Pool and SPA- Indoor Pool.
The sandy beach, equipped with private Beach Cabanas, stretches along the protected bay securing a pleasant water- temperature and smooth immersing into the turquoise Aegean waters all season long.
For sports enthusiasts, a tennis court, high tech fitness gym and open spaces for yoga await on property. Sightseers are welcome to explore neighbouring Nikiti Village, rural Sithonia and Thessaloniki by land or embark on a Yacht cruise to fall under the spell of Northern Greece’s most enchanting destination.
THE PRIVATE BEACH
On our private 315m fine beach, natural beauty blends with unparalleled luxury. Our Beach Team is devoted to remedy hunger, thirst or a sweet craving, unpolished sunglasses, and suntanned skin in need of a cold towel. Our Beach Reception saves a trip to the Front Desk for activity- or dining arrangements whilst our Water Sports Station is at hand to provide a Sea Bob speed ride or free water sports gear.
The sun loungers and side- table are shaded by a large umbrella and included for all Guests.
For more privacy, we offer sight-protected Day Beds equipped with a terrace and a comfortable double bed set in the Main section of the Beach.
For truly secluded relaxation, our luxe Private Beach Cabanas in fashionable rope design are fitted with a Sofa- lounge, a double bed, and a private stretch of the Beach.
The grandest of options to let the calm rise is The Royal Beach Cabana, hiding at the very end of the Private Beach. The Royal Beach Cabana features a swinging Bed, sitting lounges, a lunching area, work desk, shower, and Private stretch of the Beach.
We recommend pre-booking a Day Bed, Beach Cabana or The Royal Beach Cabana prior to arrival.
Stirred by the breeze, dense Bougainvillea branches softly tap against the floor-to-ceiling windows of the SPA, a sunlit oasis of tranquillity devoted entirely to relaxation, recuperation, and pampering. Immersed in citrus scents, one is welcomed to unwind in the landscape of Saunas, Hammam, Caldarium and heated Indoor-Pool or sip a homemade detox tea on the heated stone stretchers.
Our expansive treatment range is composed of Oriental Holistic and ancient Eastern practices which effectively expose the Ayurvedic, Thai, and Shiatsu secrets to well-being. To entice our guests into utterly health-boosting, beautifying or relaxing transformations, the SPA boasts modern massage rooms for single or couple treatments, a Nail Spa, a Trilogy room with a Reflexology bed and Cleopatra’s bath.
Natural sunlight pours into our zen Indoor- SPA yet if one cannot see himself part with the serene Beach, a shady Outdoor- SPA- area and an array of treatments and massages await right by the Beachside: An experience, that blends physical relaxation with the natural music therapy of the gentle waves lapping onto the shore, the song of native birds and the wind in the palm leaves.

Food & wine
In each of our three Restaurants, we fully embrace the individual signature cuisine with unlimited passion, creative innovation, and heightened consciousness on responsible product choice. All our renovated Restaurants are Open-air with a direct sea view over the Aegean Sea.
THE SQUIRREL GASTRONOMIC RESTAURANT
Our multiple award-winning Gourmet Restaurant “The Squirrel” features only 5 tables to guarantee an undisturbed dining- experience to the very peaks of French and Mediterranean tastes. The marble-laid Restaurant is accentuated with pieces of original art, a water fountain and hand-selected furnishings under the majestic pine trees which are home to the curious dinner companion who lent us his name. “The Squirrel” is considered one of the principal culinary addresses in Greece and a Reservation for the exclusive venue is mandatory.
Unlike our other Restaurants, The Squirrel is not open to Children.
The Fine- Dining venue “Andromeda Restaurant” is set on an iconic marble terrace and serves Mediterranean-accented, modern cuisine. The a la carte restaurant continues to reinvent itself in creativity and variety offering diversely themed specials with culinary delights from around the Globe. The classic Greek marble design invites an elegant dining atmosphere under the pine trees or inside the open-plan dinner hall offering equally unparalleled sea views through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
In addition to the a la carte option, the Andromeda Restaurant is also our Half-Board venue offering a daily changing dinner menu.
THE ANITHOS RESTAURANT
The “Anithos Restaurant” by the Beach offers a fusion of authentic Greek flavours, Fish & Seafood, and mouthwatering Barbecues. In this eatery, we cherish above all local produce and the Aegean’s freshest catch to explore the whole of Greece’s original tastes. This a la carte restaurant welcomes with stylish, modern flair on the upper open-plan area in creams and whites blending with the wooden details or offers a more secluded seating on the lower terrace meters away from the sea.
The Anithos Restaurant is open for Lunch and Dinner hours.
BACHTSES GREEK NIGHT
Held in our on site Garden Tavern, our adaptation to a traditional Bachtses Night is steeped with authentic Greek atmosphere revolving all around food, drinks, music and dance. Live cooking of multiple traditional dishes, paired with original beverages locally produced, make our Bachtses a truly authentic experience with rustic flair. Live music throughout the night invites you to join the traditional dances and introduces you to the Greek idea of celebration.
