Sani Marina, hugely popular with motor yacht owners and sailors alike, sits at the heart of the incredible 5-star Sani Resort. Extolled by Condé Nast Traveller as the best resort in Greece, it’s home to 1,000 acres of lush pine forest, long sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters and breathtaking views over the Aegean Sea. But its pleasures go way beyond its natural charms.
Sani Marina 215 berths and 3m water depth for vessels up to 26m LOA (85ft). Berthing at Sani Marina gives you access to this exquisite resort, made up of 4 luxury hotels, 4 spas, chic boutiques, stylish bars, exquisite dining and endless sporting opportunities.
It’s the perfect base from which to explore the secluded coves of Halkidiki and the islands made famous by the film, Mamma Mia. Be sure not to miss an excursion to the unique World Heritage Site of Mount Athos and its monasteries.
What’s more, since Sani’s closest airport, Thessaloniki International, is just a 3-hour flight from most major European cities – and a leisurely 40-minute drive from there – you can quickly find yourself in the perfect holiday setting.

Indulgent pamper days – Should you ever tire of the countless activities and entertainment, inimitable feasting experiences and lazy days on the beach, turn the spotlight on yourself at My Spa.

Sani is best enjoyed from your berth – Berthing at Sani Marina is more cost-effective than staying in one of the resort hotels. If you were to spend the night in Sani Beach Hotel at the beginning of June, prices for a Junior Suite Garden View (for two adults and a child) would start at €254. Whereas berthing your 38ft yacht would cost just a ¼ of the price €51 a day (+23% VAT).
Then as we move deeper into high season, at the start of July the same room at Sani Beach Hotel starts at €380 a night. And an identical berth costs a ⅓ – €104 per day (+23% VAT).
