About The Hotel

Our flagship Beach Club is right on Vassiliki beach, looking out over a very beautiful bay with emerald clear waters. It’s at the windward end of the beach so you get the longest sailing hours and the best conditions!

Our pool and gardens front one of the finest water sports beaches in Greece, where guests enjoy the relaxing comforts of our hotel, our fun and sociable Kids Clubs and the best water sports tuition from our own RYA instructors.

There's a stunning sea view or partial sea view from almost every room at the Surf Hotel. We have a range of twin, triple, quad and inter-connecting family suites. All rooms come with a balcony or terrace and of course have a full en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, Wi-fi, fridge and Satellite TV with English stations.

At Surf Hotel we offer a very sociable atmosphere with lots going on: theme nights, excursions, fitness clubs, painting classes, yoga, bike rides and high energy windsurfing and dinghy sailing in the afternoon’s thermal breeze… a local phenomenon which the area is famous for.

Child & Family

Being a very family orientated company, it’s understandable that our flagship centre in Vassiliki attracts lots of children during the school holidays. We’re therefore very well geared up and kids love our free Active Kids Clubs for Sea Urchins and Tigers from 4 to 13 years; and our excellent Youth Squad which is a dedicated coaching programme for 8-13 year olds.

Coupled with a short transfer from the airport and the sheer range of kid’s activities on offer make this a great club for families. The gentle conditions of Vassiliki bay each morning ensure kids get more than enough water-time and the waist deep teaching area and sand bar make it perfect for kids to learn sailing, windsurfing and paddle sports in warm, clear waters.

Our kids clubs will introduce kids to water sports as well as a whole heap of fun and (slightly crazy) shore based activities run by our expert childcare leaders. They’re designed to give kids a sociable time whilst learning new experiences and making the most of the local area.

If you’re travelling with babies or toddlers don't forget to ask about our baby packs with cots and high chairs. There's a crèche and kids play area where you can make feeds, warm milk and play with your toddlers. You'll also appreciate our range of interconnecting and family rooms.

Vassiliki has beautiful beaches , bays and inlets - perfect for swimming, sun bathing and snorkelling. Kayak or paddle board excursions along with boat trips and cycle rides to nearby Cephalonia are very popular. You may also wish to try the wine tasting tours or perhaps hire a car from €25 a day to see more of the beautiful island.


Activities on the shore

Vass’ is known for its mountain biking, so feel free to take out one of our Specialized bikes or choose your level and join a guided ride for a sociable cruise in company or a downhill blast for experts.

You might also try paddle board yoga or one of our fitness classes with Aqua Zumba. Or relax and learn water colour painting*. For a day out, try island-hopping to nearby Cephalonia or a walk along coastal paths to a secluded beach.

Maybe you just want to relax by the pool, enjoy a long lunch or go for a swim in the crystal clear waters around our club. You can even drop the kids off in our Kids Club where they will meet so many new friends it’ll be hard to tear them away!

Activities on the water

Whether you’re an avid water sports fanatic or interested in learning to windsurf or sail this summer, then Vassiliki will teach you skills you never thought possible! Our expert instructors will guide even the most meek-minded or gung-ho through a week of fun activities at whatever pace you desire.

You will love the social atmosphere and alternate activities both on and off the water of this very relaxed all-rounder Beach Club.

The calm morning winds are perfect for paddle sports and learning to sail or windsurf. A time when experts can practice advanced sailing techniques with spinnakers or windsurf tricks. All these activities and 5 days of sailing and windsurfing tuition is included for free with your holiday.

Our exciting range of boards from Starboard and boats from RS, Laser and Topper are always available to use and as the wind builds after lunch even the less experienced sailors can stay on the water with our expert beach team always on hand. See kit list.

Don’t forget to try our sociable paddle cruises, dinghy cruises and racing – which are not to be missed!


Wind conditions

Famous for its strong and reliable winds and its flat water, Vass’ attracts expert sailors from all over the world; whilst still being manageable for the less experienced sailor with its predictable conditions.

A normal day in Vass’ starts with very light winds which are ideal for beginners, children and families to get on the water. The thermal wind, known locally as ‘Eric’, builds slowly after lunch giving a Force 3-5 cross-shore wind most days.

We often see Force 6 or 7 by the late afternoon for even more exciting conditions for expert windsurfers. The wind is most consistent from early June through to mid-September with planing conditions almost every day.

Why go to Vassiliki?

If you prefer the idea of a more sociable club-style holiday where you will meet lots of new and likeminded people, super-friendly staff and want an active Kids Club…then this is the place to be! Of course you can get away from it all and visit many of the areas’ local beauty spots such as secluded beaches, culture sites or go on a walk, a bike ride or island-hop to Cephalonia or Ithaca.

If you’re looking for a windy destination for him (or her), but calm morning conditions for mum and the kids, so that everyone can have fun on the water – then Vass’ is the place! If you’re looking for an all-round holiday (not just windsurfing!) with alternative things-to-do then the Surf Hotel will definitely tick your boxes!


Most rooms are doubles and twins and each has en-suite bathroom with shower, air-conditioning, Wi-fi, fridge and Satellite TV with English stations.

There’s a balcony or terrace to each bedroom, some enjoy distant sea views and others views of the mountains. We also have a family room which has a double room and twin room with inter-connecting door.
