Kalithea in Halkidiki is one of Greece’s most desirable holiday destinations. Book a holiday here, and you can stay in the 5-star Ammon Zeus Hotel, which is situated on a stretch of private beach. This resort is notable for a number of fantastic features including a swimming pool, gym, live music nights, and a buffet restaurant.
Ammon Zeus is named for the Temple of Ammon Zeus, situated just a few minutes from the hotel. Despite the historic inspiration, the hotel is a celebration of modern luxury, boasting chic, ultra comfortable rooms that come complete with a balcony or terrace. During the day, you can make the most of the hotel’s facilities by heading down to the lounger-lined pool, hitting the private sandy beach, or enjoying a spa treatment. For guests travelling with children, there’s a separate kids’ pool, as well as a playground and playroom. For the grown-ups, there’s the main bar, where you can sip a cocktail while watching the sun go down. Meals are served at a buffet restaurant overlooking the beach, but snacks are available throughout the day at the snack bar – and for ultimate indulgence, you can order food to your beach lounger.
Near to the hotel you’ll find a number of shops, restaurants and bars. In the neighbouring villages of Athitos and Solina you’ll find a folklore museum and an early Christian church. If you hire a car, you can venture a bit further; an ideal day trip destination for families is the Monsoon Fun Park, a water park on Faros Beach, a 30-minute drive from Ammon Zeus.
