    In the heart of Greece, a new era of luxurious sustainability is set to begin when the Gundari Resort opens in May this year ahead of the busy summer season.

    Unveiling a Sustainable Paradise:

    Gundari Resort serves as a hallmark of sustainability, seamlessly blending opulence with eco-conscious living. The resort’s commitment to the environment is evident in every detail, from its architecture to daily operations.

    Guests can indulge in the lap of luxury whilst knowing their escape respects the delicate natural balance of the pristine island of Folegandros.

    A Unique Greek Oasis:

    Nestled on the captivating island of Folegandros, Gundari Resort unveils a setting that dreams are made of in the Cycladic archipelago. Unlike the well-trodden paths of some tourist-heavy destinations, Folegandros stands as a hidden gem in the Cyclades – an island that resists the common tourist traps and offers a raw, unfiltered
    experience.

    The enchanting landscapes provide the perfect canvas for an unforgettable getaway. From the rugged beauty of the island’s picturesque landscapes to the crystal-clear waters that surround it, every moment at Gundari on Folegandros is a postcard-worthy memory waiting to be captured.

    The resort invites guests to immerse themselves in the unique charm of Folegandros, where every view is a testament to the island’s unparalleled natural beauty and authentic, unspoiled allure

    Effortless Arrival:

    Well-connected Folegandros can be reached by regular daily ferries from Athens, Santorini (just 50 minutes away by fast ferry), Milos and all major destinations in the Cyclades.

    For guests who prefer to arrive in style, the resort can arrange private helicopter transfers from Athens and the surrounding Aegean islands or send its luxury boat to transport them over from Santorini, Milos, Paros, Sifnos and other nearby ports. Gundari is 3km from Chora, 5km from the port and 2km from the heliport.

    Impeccable Resort Offerings:

    From a subterranean spa that hugs a dramatic cliff surrounded by calming seas, to Michelin-starred dining options, the resort’s onsite facilities are world-class, the resort also invites guests to embark on a collection of unique experiences designed to unravel the enchantment of Folegandros.

    Gundari’s luxury boat, the Axopar XC 37, becomes a vessel for exploration, carrying guests to hidden bays, stunning beaches, and nearby islands.

    Thrill-seekers can delve into the depths of the island’s aquatic  wonders through diving and snorkelling adventures, exploring the captivating caves, reefs, and underwater walls that surround Folegandros.

    For those inclined towards terrestrial pursuits, guided hiking along ancient paths or historical tours unveils the island’s rich cultural tapestry. Alternatively, guests can opt for a modern adventure with electric bikes or EV Mini

    Moke vehicles, providing a unique and eco-friendly way to discover Folegandros. As the countdown to May 2024 begins, anticipation is building for the grand unveiling of Gundari Resort.

    This is not just a destination; it’s an invitation to immerse oneself in the harmonious blend of luxury and sustainability.

    More information about Gundari Resort, including enquiries and bookings for the
    property, can be found on their website.
