In Greek mythology, Cephalus was given the island now known as Kefalonia (Cephallenia) by the Gods as a reward for helping to defeat the Taphians and Teleboans, and when you see the splendour and beauty of this island you can see why the ancient Greeks gave it that background story. Cephalonia Palace Hotel is ideally located on the South Western side of the island, just a short skip away from the soft sand and crystal clear waters of Xi Beach.
Cephalonia Palace Hotel is a calm oasis acting as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of some more lively resorts on the island. Standard rooms come with a whole host of amenities, including air conditioning, a separate bathroom, a daily maid service, a private balcony/terrace, pool views and a television. The rooms themselves are furnished in a modern but warm style and give the feeling of luxury. The hotel also has a huge number of amenities, including a bar/bar restaurant, beauty treatments on request, a stunning pool with pool bar, tennis courts, car/motorbike rental and a more formal restaurant which serves traditional Mediterranean dishes as well as more international cuisine.
The hotel is incredibly close to the beautiful Xi Beach, and the Mediterranean climate of the local area around Cephalonia Palace Hotel makes it an ideal place to let your hair down and relax in the sun. For a quieter experience, you can wonder around the lush green gardens that make the hotel a popular place for weddings and other events. The small town of Lixouri is very nearby (less than a ten minute car journey) and here there are other restaurants, bars and shops. From Lixouri you can also take a ferry to the slightly more energetic town of Argostoli, which is known for its vivacious nightlife and excellent seafood.
