The TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards recently named a Greek hotel as the best all-inclusive on the entire globe for 2021. The prestigious award was also bestowed on a second hotel in Greece, as it was voted the third best hotel in the entire world by travelers.

The awards, which were released in January, are regarded as some of the most reliable in the industry because they rely solely on customer experience and ratings — in contrast to other hotel awards which are often decided using expert opinions, which may not align with customer needs.

TripAdvisor awards single out Greece for excellence in accommodations

The awards, which are sure to be noticed by thousands of tourists prior to traveling this summer, bestowed the coveted seal of approval on the two hotels on Halkidiki, which is world-renowned for its scenic beauty and wealth of tourist amenities.

The 19th annual awards were announced in time for 2021 summer bookings, as Greek hotels open to foreign tourists after an extraordinarily difficult year dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

The best all-inclusive on the entire globe for 2021 was the Ikos Olivia, located in Gerakini, Halkidiki. The resort boasts four pools as well as multiple dining options for guests.

The Sani Dunes Resort, also in Halkidiki, was named the third best hotel anywhere in the world. It boasts multiple pools for the enjoyment of guests as well as six tennis courts, and is considered a great stay for a romantic getaway because children must be 13 or over to stay at the hotel.

The Sani/Ikos Group owns both of the hotels in Greece that came in for such rave reviews on TripAdvisor that they ranked first and third in the entire world in all-inclusive accommodations. The COO of the group, Dimitris Kontos, said of the achievement:

“The guests who chose the unique holiday experience offered by Sani Resort and Ikos Resorts, especially during the difficult times we are in, honored us with excellent reviews, highlighting the Sani / Ikos Group as two of the top resorts in the world.

“This fact that fills us with pride and gives us the necessary motivation to continue our efforts to stay on top with even greater dedication. A strong ally throughout our efforts this year were and are the thorough measures to protect the health of our visitors and staff we have utilised.”

Greece opens for tourism

Greece opened to tourism on Friday, May 14. The government’s plans for welcoming foreign travelers while keeping people safe from the coronavirus include entry requirements, comprehensive vaccination campaigns at tourist hotspots, and vaccine passports.

All those who travel to Greece will need to fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) a day before arriving. People entering the country, regardless of entrance point, will also need to either provide proof of a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours prior to touchdown or a certificate showing they have been fully vaccinated.

Greece is also planning on finishing up vaccinating both tourism sector workers and the residents of popular island destinations as soon as possible in order to minimize infections.
