“The Corfu Imperial exudes old-school grandeur in the best possible way. With private beaches, a plethora of restaurants, and superb sports and leisure facilities for couples and families, it's a destination in its own right. Exclusive, and in our view the best on Corfu.”

“The Corfu Imperial exudes old-school grandeur in the best possible way. With private beaches, a plethora of restaurants, and superb sports and leisure facilities for couples and families, it's a destination in its own right. Exclusive, and in our view the best on Corfu.”

Hotel Overview

“The Corfu Imperial sits in glorious privacy at the tip of the Kommeno Peninsula, surrounded by trim grounds. Villas (in the rose-pink livery that is de rigueur in Corfu) with private pools flank the main building, where four floors of guest rooms rise above a vast, marble-lined lobby, palatial lounge and reception area, where smartly-uniformed staff offer a glass of freshly-pressed juice while checking you in. In public areas and in rooms, the overall style is classic, even aristocratic, with vintage furnishings and works of art. Creamy-white stucco and polished wood predominate, while satin and velvet cushions add colour and glitz. Once you've changed into your fluffy bathrobe and settled in, you may not want to leave your room, with its view of the bright blue Ionian and green hills beyond, but when you do, more pleasures await.
Service is slickly professional (staff wear smart-casual white and khaki cottons during the day, then change into trim black outfits after dark). The menu in restaurants including poolside Nafsika, seaside Yali, and the a la carte Aristo spans Greek favourites, Mediterranean fusion and classic European. Breakfast buffet is lavish, including champagne and a huge array of cold cuts and hot dishes. It's served on the terrace of the gracious Mon Repos, which also provides a lunch buffet.
There's a seemingly endless array of sports and activities for young and old, ranging from pilates and zumba sessions to basketball, archery and mini-soccer. A complimentary daily shuttle will whisk you to Corfu Town for sightseeing and shopping, and fans of The Durrells can visit Grecotel's Dannilia, the picture-perfect recreated village where the show was shot.”

See What They Say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Our guests love Corfu Imperial because of its seamless service, outstanding sea views from everywhere in the property and because it is located right at the tip of the Kommeno Peninsula, a Grecotel private peninsula that is a green haven. 
This season, Corfu Imperial launched two special treats: a sleek 22-metre Sunseeker yacht for guests to fully enjoy and a lavish menu in Aristos restaurant concocted by the Michelin-starred head chef, Matteo Temperini. But there is much more to try and taste...

What is there to do in the area?
Grecotel guests can visit the Danilia Village, a 1930s inspired village. Once left to deteriorate, Danilia Village was restored to its former glory by the Daskalantonakis family, proprietors of Grecotel, the leading luxury hotels and resorts collection in Greece. But rather than turning Grecotel Danilia Village into a hotel, the Daskalantonakis family maintained the charm of an original Corfu town with open-air village squares, narrow lanes and an iconic church. Just under 5 miles from the Old Town of Corfu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and even closer to the natural wonders of Kommeno Peninsula, Grecotel Danilia Village is free to visit for Grecotel guests.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Grecotel is famous for its lavish breakfast spreads—proof that all guests are treated like royals. And the selection at the Corfu Imperial is truly worthy of empire, a mouth-watering buffet laden with an array of fresh fruit in season, just-baked breads, cheeses, yogurts, and other dairy, breakfast meats, cereals and muesli, nuts, home-made marmalades, honey and more—mostly organic and locally-sourced. It is the ultimate breakfast buffet selection.
Seasonal isn’t just a key word: visit us in September and you might not find your favorite foods from June as grapes and figs take the place of apricots and cherries. Only the freshest ingredients and the finest make the cut—literally, as we slice our home-cured meats on the plate just for you. But the real piece de resistance is the menu of made-to-order egg dishes that goes beyond feather-light omelets—and yes, we serve those too.
These selections are truly divine, from a farmhouse-style Cretan scramble with vine-ripened tomatoes and oregano picked from our kitchen garden to an extraordinary version of eggs benedict with smoked salmon or bacon and poached eggs drizzled with truffle oil served with artichoke puree. Yum!

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
Today, the gastronomy of Corfu delights food lovers both near and far. Traditional recipes sizzle with fresh ingredients and local products, such as olive oil, wine, cereals and golden honey. Throughout Corfu, many local eateries offer an authentic taste of the island life. Popular dishes include sofrito (veal cooked in wine sauce with garlic and parsley), pastitsada (veal or chicken cooked with fresh tomatoes, cinnamon, wine, onions and spices) and bourdeto (a peppery fish stew).
For haute cuisine in a regal setting, look no further than Corfu Imperial. At this five-star hotel, amazing views complement innovative flavours to create an imperial dining experience. Choose from a variety of tasty options this season.
This year, Michelin-starred Chef Matteo Temperini raises the bar at the Aristos Restaurant. His awarded menu reinvents Mediterranean classics using seafood, herbs and organic olive oil. A selection of fine wines is available to match your palate.
On the waterfront, the Yali Seafood Restaurant offers gourmet dining with panoramic sea views. Delight in the catch of the day while snuggling your feet into the sand. For your enjoyment, Yali hosts live saxophone melodies every Wednesday evening.
The newest addition to Corfu Imperial is the a la carte Steak & Sushi Restaurant. Perched on a wide terrace overlooking the Ionian Sea, this venue offers a delicious surf and turf menu.
Rolled sushi using the freshest catch of the day pairs with the finest steaks that money can buy. Customise your favourite cocktail while admiring vivid views across the horizon.
The options don’t end there. The Nafsika brasserie presents a collection of ales from the island’s renowned microbrewery. Next door, Mon Repos serves the gold standard of Mediterranean cuisine and Greek buffet breakfasts.
The Odysseus Cocktail Terrace provides refreshments with waterfront vistas. And for many guests, the evening begins at the Alkinoos Lobby Bar, where lounge music complements the relaxed mood.

What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms?
Yes, we can certainly fit extra beds in the rooms. At Corfu Imperial, children have their own amenities, dining menus, welcome gifts, a free tasty corner with healthy snacks and plenty of activities under the Discovery Adventures programme and the Grecoland Club. 

The Grecoland Club was created entirely with kids in mind and has regular, supervised, morning and afternoon activities. GrecoBaby is the solution for those travelling with babies and tots up to the age of 3. GrecoKids (3-6 years old) and Greco Juniors (7-12 years old) offers brightly coloured benches and tables, costumes, crafts, activities and competitions create a magical holiday experience. Teens from the age of 13 can also participate in activities organised by Grecoteens. From morning to night, there is plenty to keep them occupied, such as tennis, basketball and football tournaments, dancing sessions, parties and more.
Discovery Adventures is a program for children that includes outdoor activities, developed to bring awareness of the environment, nature culture and healthy eating.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
If the land of the Hellenes is home to the best hospitality in the world, imagine what it’s like to stay at Grecotel – the leading collection of luxury resorts and hotels in Greece. Set on the secluded tip of the Komenno Peninsula, Corfu Imperial is where style and elegance come to holiday.”
