As the horizon reveals views of the Poseidon-blessed bay, just beyond a town named Metamorphosis, we sense that the best is yet to come.. and then a secluded gate provides a slight peek into a lush and opulent vista. We feel privileged to enter.

Danai Beach Resort & Villas is a family-run property which was established over 40 years ago. This “Garden of Eden” is located on Sithonia, the second peninsula of Halkidiki, Greece, surrounded by the Aegean sea, near to key cultural sights and filled with natural beauty. Underpinned by a genuine passion for hospitality, it offers the highest standards of luxury and elegance.
