Sani Club is part of the award winning Sani Resort, which is set in a 1,000-acre nature reserve on the Kassandra peninsula in Greece. Designed as a small village set around Sani Marina, the resort boasts extensive facilities that included lagoon pools and 25 buffet and à la carte restaurants serving world cuisine. Private, pristine beaches lie just steps away from Sani Club’s rooms. This is one of the quieter areas of accommodation within the resort which is set on a hillside surrounded by pine forests and olive groves, overlooking the turquoise Aegean Sea.
The accommodation at the Club was perfect in size for our family of two adults and two children (age 11 & 9). The rooms had been recently refurbished with a contemporary design which was light and airy featuring floor to ceiling windows. The balcony was beautifully furnished with views stretching across to Mount Olympus and the marbled bathroom came complete with rain shower, free standing bath, double sink and beautiful supply of bath essentials by Anne Semonin. The room was spacious, luxurious and cleaned daily to a very high standard.
We relaxed into Sani life from the moment that we arrived. The staff were extremely attentive and nothing was ever too much trouble. The great thing about the resort is if you want to be active there is always something to do. For us, it was all about recharging the batteries and spending time with the children. The kids enjoyed getting around the resort on the golf buggies and we used these daily to go to breakfast. The food was amazing wherever we went, from the buffet to fine dining. We loved the pools and were able to unwind from our busy lives within a couple of days of arriving at the resort. We enjoyed going to the beach, which was really close by, and there was a variety of watersports on offer. The kids absolutely loved the pedalos with slides into the sea. It was a warm and friendly atmosphere and we were thrilled that the children made friends easily around the pool which enabled us to really relax! We got into a little routine of walking to the Marina every night for cocktails to enjoy the incredible sunset, which were the best I’d ever seen. It was nice to kick off our shoes and stroll up the beach or if we wanted more action, there was often some live music or a DJ to enjoy.
There is so much entertainment on offer at Sani and most of the activities are at no additional cost. The resort app made it really easy to make dinner reservations and book a range of activities and excursions, from Motown shows, sunset cruises, tree top adventures and electric scooters. The resort really did have it all. We loved the variety of restaurants and the option to utilise them even when on the half board dining plan. When dining around you could simply re-assign your credit to the restaurant of your choice and just pay the balance. Our favourite restaurant was Ouzerie, a little traditional Greek Tavern, where we dined on the first night of our holiday. I’ll never forget being sat on the terrace watching the sun go down. They had a great selection of food on the menu and we especially enjoyed the seafood and wine while the kids had pasta and pizza. The staff went above and beyond with the children and made the evening one to remember. Another highlight for us was the White Party which takes place every Wednesday, it was so much fun to be in such a lively atmosphere with the kids too! We danced on the beach and we all had the best time.
I would definitely recommend Sani to any family. I believe that 75% of their guests re-book year on year, so that says it all really. We’ll certainly be heading back there in 2020!
