These NEWLY-OPENED HOTELS are perfect for a mini-moon …
Direct sea access, private beach, crystalline water and no children. If this sounds idyllic then pencil in the MarBella Bido Suite Hotel & Villas, which opens in May, as a possibility for a quick pre-moon or mini-moon. Blending the natural charm of Corfu with an elegant design ethos the resort has 70 rooms. Each offer breath-taking views with many having their own private terrace, whirlpool and sunbeds. There’s also a strong wellness focus at the resort, with an on-site spa and gym. Add direct access onto a private beach and the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea (as an alternative to the hotel pool) and it’s a tempting option.
MarBella Nido (www.marbellanido.gr) will offer rooms from £135/€153 per night on B&B basis.
