Introduction to Sani

Recognised in 2022, for the fourth consecutive year, as the World’s Leading Family and Beach Resort at the World Travel Awards, Sani is a collection of enchanting hotels, each with its own unique spirit. Set within a bay on Greece’s Kassandra peninsula, Sani Resort sits at the heart of 3 beautiful worlds, surrounded by verdant forest, thriving wetlands and 7 pristine beaches.


Boasting world-class amenities, breathtaking landscapes, and a commitment to excellence, these resorts cater to travellers looking for an indulgent getaway. Each Sani resort is a masterpiece in its own right, providing an array of experiences tailored to different preferences.


Sani Resort is a place to explore forests, soak up the sun on seven magnificent blue flag beaches, revitalise in any one of the five unique spas, take part in a vast choice of sports and organised activities, including Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy, Chelsea Football Academy and Bear Grylls Survival Academy, experience fabulous entertainment and indulge in a choice of over forty amazing restaurants and bars.

Sani is only 45 minutes (80 km) from the international airport of Thessaloniki and only a 3 hours flight from most European airports. Thessaloniki is the second largest city of Greece and the capital of Macedonia.

Thessaloniki (also voted “Best Mid-Sized European city for human capital and lifestyle” by the Financial Times) is a 45 minute drive away from Sani Resort. It is packed with theatres, clubs, an International Film Festival, two contemporary art museums, galleries, designer shops and more coffee places than anywhere else in Europe.

Sani offers an ecological holiday escape with a bird sanctuary at the Sani wetlands; home to a large number of birds like migrating mute swans, black-winged stilts and little egrets. The surrounding area is ideal for bird watching, hiking, jogging and cycling. There are clearly sign-posted walking paths for walks through the woods.

These five stunning properties are all within walking distance of each other, yet far enough away to create a real sense of individuality.  At the heart of the resort is the glamorous Sani Marina with its award-winning restaurants, cosmopolitan bars, luxury yachts and fashionable shopping boutiques.
