The Elivi Skiathos the hotel said goodbye to summer 2021 after winning a spot on Condé Nast Traveler’s “10 best resorts in Greece” according to the results of the Readers’ Choice Awards of the luxury travel magazine.

Condé Nast Traveler readers’ votes put Elivi Skiathos in the 7th place.

According to hotel management, the recognition from CNT readers follows a successful 2021 tourist season with numbers reaching those of 2019.

“Our ranking as one of the top 10 resorts in Greece by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler proves the high standard of our services and the ultimate vacation experience we offer to our visitors”, Elivi Skiathos, General Manager Vivi Nathanailidou said, noting that the hotel has withstood the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic for the past two years.

New markets

August was the most productive month for Elivi Skiathos after the high occupancy rates recorded in July and which continued into September.

“This year has been very productive even though we have had to deal with challenges such as the late start of the tourist season, travel restrictions and significant staffing difficulties ”said Elivi Skiathos, Commercial Director Lena Velissaridou.

She added that Elivi Skiathos has been successful in attracting new tourist markets, which helps define the hotel’s strategy for next year.

“We are already seeing strong interest in 2022 from the UK, Scandinavian and German-speaking countries,” Velissaridou added.

The UK, which until recently was the main tourist market source of Skiathos, this year came in second due to strict Covid-19 measures and domestic travel restrictions. However, demand from other markets such as Romania and Austria traveled through lost ground while the hotel also attracted a satisfactory number of visitors from Germany, Italy, Serbia, France and Cyprus.

During the month of August, the hotel recorded bookings from young people and families while the period covering the start and end of the tourist season attracted mainly senior guests. Elivi Skiathos also hosted an increased number of corporate events and wedding receptions this summer.

Greek visitors

According to the hotel management, national travelers significantly supported bookings this year, as many Greek customers have chosen Elivi Villas and Suites for their summer vacations due to their unique beachfront location and the high level of services offered.

In addition, the new direct ferry connection from Thessaloniki to Skiathos also played an important role as it met the growing demand of domestic tourists from northern Greece.

The 5-star Elivi Skiathos hotel consists of three residential areas – Elivi Xenia Hotel, Elivi Grace Suites and Elivi Nest Villas & Suites – with a capacity of 161 rooms. Facilities include two outdoor pools, a spa with indoor pool and a gym.
