About the Beach Club
Welcome to the stunning Greek island of Lefkada, set in the shimmering blue waters of the Ionian Sea. It’s home to the Xenia Hotel, which we run as a slightly more tranquil extension of our Surf Hotel Beach Club just over the road.
Xenia itself is set back about 150m from Vassiliki Bay:, one of the finest watersports beaches in Greece (or anywhere else for that matter!) As such it offers a slightly more private atmosphere than the Surf Hotel, but with the advantage that all its facilities are just a frisbee throw away.
A holiday here in Vassiliki is a chance for the whole family to shake the rest of the year off, stretch out... and unwind. Xenia has its own private pool and sunloungers, or you can head over to the Surf Hotel and beach and take out any of our kit from the watersports centre for a spin round the bay. Get wet windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding...
You can do it all safe in the knowledge that your kids are having the time of their lives in our brilliant Active Kids Club: hanging out with new friends, learning new sports and skills on and off the water... and giving you a well-deserved breather!
You’re not just staying with us for the week (or two) - you’re part of the club. So all our activities, whether they’re on dry land or in the water (for you or the children) are included in your holiday.
Xenia is at the windward end of the beach so you get the longest sailing hours and the best conditions, all with free expert RYA sailing and windsurfing coaching on hand. We’ve also the latest kayaking and paddleboards for you to take out while you’re here.
The pool and gardens front one of the finest water sports beaches in Greece: Vassiliki is the perfect spot for windsurfing and dinghy sailing. Conditions in the bay are perfect for beginners with gentle on-shore winds and calm waters and our crack team of instructors have helped thousands of guests find their sea legs over the last ten years.
The arrival of stronger thermal winds (known locally as ‘Eric’) later in the afternoon are tailor-made for those who like more of a challenge. More experienced sailors and windsurfers love to blast around the bay, backed up by the combination of our state-of-the-art kit and expert instructors on hand to help them get the most of it.
Activities on the Shore
Meanwhile for those who don’t want to spend time with Eric, there’s always something going on back at the beach club. We lay on theme nights, excursions, fitness clubs, painting classes, yoga and bike rides for guests at Xenia and the beachfront Surf Hotel.
for guests at Xenia and the beachfront Surf Hotel..
Vass’ is known for its great mountain bike trails, so feel free to grab one of our Specialized bikes, or join one of our guided rides, (which run 2-3 times daily), for a sociable cruise in company or a downhill blast for experts.
Try one of our fitness classes which include Aqua Zumba, Stretch-and-Relax, and beach fitness classes.
For a day out, try island-hopping to nearby Cephalonia or a walk along one of the many beautiful coastal paths to a secluded beach, armed only with your swimsuit, towel and a good book.
About the Hotel
Set back a little from the beachfront Surf Hotel, we think Xenia is Vassiliki’s best-kept secret, offering an oasis of calm that’s just a hop, skip and a surf away from the beach. Just like the Surf Hotel, Xenia has a range of twin, triple, quad and inter-connecting family suites, all designed in a fresh, modern style.
Rooms at the front of the Xenia face the sea, while those at the back can enjoy a view of the mountains. Each room comes with a sea view as well as a balcony or terrace for you to soak up the sun, and (as you’d expect) each has a full en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, Wi-fi, fridge and satellite TV with English stations.
If you’re keen to work up a sweat while you’re with us then the Surf Hotel’s Fitness Club offers Aqua Zumba, Stretch Relax and Jogging classes.
Once you’re back in from the water you can relax over a drink in the Xenia’s poolside bar. It’s the perfect spot for a cool drink at the end of a hot day. You can always head over to the Surf Hotel for a drink on the beach in the Driftwood Bar, dinner in our restaurant, or maybe at our end-of-week awards or BBQ.
