When Aristotle Onassis bought Skorpios in 1963 he had the means to purchase almost any uninhabited island across the globe. But he chose this magical, undiscovered spot in the Ionian for its astonishing beauty and, one can only assume, because its larger neighbour, Meganissi was not for sale. Because if it is astonishing beauty you are looking for, you will be hard pushed to beat Keromoussi. A stone’s throw from Skorpios and magnificently situated on its own four-acre peninsular with truly breath-taking sea views at every turn, it is just the kind of barefoot-chic, intimate retreat you might expect to find on a private island; with the benefit of all the authentic Greek charm that life on Meganissi has to offer.

In-keeping with the serenity of this very special island, just four luxurious suites built to a striking single-storey design, somehow melt into their spectacular waterside location. Stylishly appointed, with over-sized beds and supremely comfy mattresses, these stunning contemporary suites offer uninterrupted sea views, comfortably furnished terraces and absolute privacy. And while one suite benefits from a pool all of its own, the elegant day-beds by the shared infinity pool and the sunbeds on the two delightful little beaches beneath, ensure there is always a tranquil spot for everyone.The exquisite breakfasts offer a variety of tempting options; served on the terrace or elsewhere if you prefer, and our Simpson Concierge is available throughout the day to serve light lunches, drinks or snacks and help you in any way they can. In the evening, the owner is on hand to arrange drinks, canapes, or local dinner reservations at your request.

Keromoussi is the vision of Jean-Paul and Nathalie, a charismatic French couple with impeccable taste and an astonishing eye for detail. The effortless sense of flow between sleek interiors, expansive terraces and the numerous little pathways that meander down to the sea creates a wonderful sense of harmony. The gardens at Keromoussi are a real passion for Jean-Paul, where he has re-cycled stone and rock excavated during the build to create steps, hidden sculptures, and a secret terrace for a blissful massage down by the sea.

Though it is primarily an adult-only Simpson hotel, designed to offer couples an exceptional level of privacy and relaxation, we may on occasion offer it as a whole, for a small group of friends or an intimate family gathering and under these circumstances older children and teenagers may be welcome.

The property’s enviable position affords a unique connection to the mythical Ionian waters, with 400 metres of coastline to observe dolphins, turtles and the abundant array of colourful fish which make the snorkelling here such a delight. Kayaks and paddleboards are available for pottering about nearby and there are two jetties for mooring up a boat if you have a mind to venture further afield.

A ten-minute drive from the hotel will take you to the lovely harbour in Vathi, with its pretty waterfront tavernas and bars and though it’s a sleepy place at heart, the ebb and flow of glamorous yachts and cruisers has ensured the dining options here are excellent. Away from Vathi, Meganissi is as untouched a place as you could hope to find and life goes on as it has done for centuries. A stay at Keromoussi promises an unforgettable holiday to this most magical of destinations.

Customer feedback

We felt very privileged to have been the very first guests in Kalamos. It was a fantastic week in an extraordinarily beautiful location. Thank you so much to Natalie and Jean Paul for making us so welcome and for all the delicious meals they cooked for us. We enjoyed dinners in Errikos and Tilevoes in Vathy. We did some lovely walks, the most spectacular being the five-hour hike along to the end of Cape Kefali, but also shorter walks round the headlands and into Vathy were a joy. But every time we went back to Keromoussi we were reminded that it is the best spot on the island.
Nick & Michael – Kalamos – September 2018

Keromoussi has a truly wonderful location, excellent hosts, fabulous facilities and the weather played its part. We had a truly wonderful holiday. We could not fault it. The location is stunning, with beautiful views and the accommodation is absolutely wonderful. As pretty well the first people there, we were looked after beautifully with an excess of food and some great Greek wine. Jean-Paul and Natalie are really attentive hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. A great find and we would recommend it without hesitation.
Mark & Annie Linley-Adams – Thilia – September 2018

Staying at Keromoussi is an amazing experience, like being a guest at one of the island's most exclusive villas and Natalie and Jean Paul are great hosts.
Mr Moore – Kalamos – September 2018

I love Simpson Travel. Simple as that. I have booked three years in a row and the properties, locations, service and information availability is universally excellent. The in-country representatives, from meeting to leaving are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. I travel with a nervous flier and everyone is very helpful and accommodating. These holidays are not cheap, but they are great value for money – I’ll be back next year no doubt!
Lesley Bunting – Skorpios – September 2018

 

Keromoussi is an amazing hotel with the most welcoming hosts. The position is outstanding. We had perfect weather for two weeks and spent our time sitting on the beaches around the island and exploring the roads and paths on foot. The orange map 1:20,000 is very helpful. Fanari Beach was probably our favourite, but we do like Reggae music! Best walks were the peninsular between Abelaki and Atherinós Bays and the circuit of Megas Birnos. Apart from the excellent meals at the hotel, we ate at Errikos, Stavros, Rose Garden and Tilevoes in Vathy. It was a privilege to stay at this hotel so early in its life and see the care and attention that have gone into every detail of its buildings and grounds. Thank you, Jean Paul, Nathalie and Sophia.
Pat & Kelvin Hardiman – Ithaki – September 2018

Keromoussi is simply wonderful in every way, we had an unforgettable stay with Jean Paul and Natalie. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and hospitality, they were consummate hosts and we could not have asked for anything more. The hotel is so incredibly well positioned with the most stunning views and is very well appointed. Jean Paul has done a wonderful job in designing and building probably the best property on the island. We were made to feel very special. We will return to Meganissi and Keromoussi to enjoy again a wonderful place.
Justin & Helen Goatcher – Kalamos – September 2018

We arrived at Keromoussi. Magnificent! The best views on the island, the warmest welcome from Jean Paul and Nathalie, delicious food and the best wines on the island! Great beach and so nice to moor your boat nearby. Petanque court with a view! We had a blast.
Paul & Mel – Kalamos – August 2018

Keromoussi has captured a little bit of heaven on the shore of Meganissi. Every last detail for guests has been considered, from yoga/fitness classes, complimentary water-sport equipment and the best selection of wine we’ve found on the Greek Islands. The rooms are decorated to the highest level, the infinity pool is to die-for and the food was exquisite. We’ll definitely be returning, I just hope Jean-Paul has brushed up on his chess game in time!
Mr A Cooper – Ithaki – August 2018

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

Local life potters along as it’s done for centuries and there are no bustling resorts on Meganissi, just three flower-filled villages – and yet you’ll still see luxury yachts moored in the harbours. Warmly welcoming, this island is also beautifully unspoilt; its coastline dotted with gleaming white beaches, some accessible only by boat or kayak. Inland, the rolling hills make for wonderful walking country, with shady pine forests and spectacular blue seas beyond.

To complete the picture, we offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas on Meganissi and an exclusive four-suite boutique hotel, set on its own private peninsula.
