PERCHED ON the south-east coastline of Corfu on an idyllic hillside MarBella Corfu is a luxury 5* resort touched by the Ionian Sea, exuding an aura of serenity and seaside bliss. The hotel is beautifully located amidst the olive groves and Agios Ionnis Peristeron beach, providing an array of marine and terrestrial wildlife opportunities.
This September, visitors can enjoy not only gorgeous weather, but the advent of over 500 flamingos to the nearby lagoon. Combine this with a natural Apivita spa, heated pools, and an array of gourmet options for the perfect September escape. During September, guests will have the chance to watch an amazing advent of flamingos at the wetlands of Alikes Lefkimmis or Chalikouna Beach, located within easy reach of the hotel. The flamingos are an opportunity for visitors to observe the area, admire and photograph it. More than 500 flamingos with white, black and pink colour on their wings decorate the scenery with the most colourful of palettes. This little paradise composes a small lagoon, wet meadows and abandoned salt production areas. For about four months, flamingos make their presence felt in the shallow waters of the lagoon and the former Salt Lake, looking for food and shelter during their migration. Over the last two years, this hidden gem has been home to more than 4,000 flamingos.
Returning from this unique wildlife interaction, guests can enjoy MarBella Corfu’s brand new one- and two-bedroom suites. The beautifully finished two-bedroom suites will offer guests total privacy and their own space to relax within the resort. With one large en-suite bedroom, a second twin bedroom and a separate shower room and a sitting room, this two-bedroom suite offers the ideal spacious accommodation for families. The sitting room is fully equipped with a Nespresso machine, whilst the bathroom is kitted out with luxury Apivita products.
Leading on from the sitting room is a private terrace with a stunning sea view and a private pool, giving guests the opportunity to relax in their own space.
