History & Story
Lesante Blu ,member of The Leading Hotels of the World, is simply one-of-a-kind experience offering exclusivity, peace of mind and five star comfort. Its ‘all-about-you’ mentality can be experienced via the private infinity pools, the adults-only policy, the state-of-the-art suites and the discreet staff. The fine selection of restaurants offering creative Greek & Mediterranean dishes by the sea, the secluded private beach, the luxurious Spa, the 24/7 impeccable room service and the private helipad as well as a jetted platform used for private excursions with our own luxurious yachts around Zakynthos and nearby islands, add up to a unique stay experience.
The hotel is owned by the Vithoulkas family which has a long activity in tourism industry since 1988. The two brothers Mr. Dionysis and Mr. Kostas Vithoulkas, educated and raised in hotels, have taken over the management of the three properties in Zakynthos, from their parents Mr. Fotis and Mrs. Maria Vithoulkas. The two brothers were the first to pursue a shift from the mass tourism model that governed the island, to a more demanding model based on unique experiences, authenticity and elegance.
In 2020-2021 at Lesante Blu we have upgraded our Honeymoon Suites to create a more romantic interior decoration and we have changed our pools to grant full privacy maintaining the amazing sea views unobstructed.

Main Strengths, Special Touch
We have redirected our Melia Fine Dining experience with a more local and modern Greek cuisine approach, which resulted to being awarded with one star in the category « Modern Greek Cuisine » at the prestigious FNL awards and as 2020 Regional Winner in Luxury Unique Experience at World Luxury Restaurant Awards.
Perched along the eastern coast on the stunning Ionian Island of Zakynthos, Lesante Blu is located near the picturesque village of Tragaki.
Zakynthos is one of the most beautiful Greek islands.
With the infamous ‘Shipwreck Beach’ being the spearhead, there are also ‘Marathonisi’ island – a natural habitat for the endangered Caretta Caretta turtle – and the wonderful Blue Caves for excursions to be visited. Zakynthos has numerous beaches for every taste, varying from sandy to rocky, and offer breathtaking landscapes that combine the sky’s blue with the famous turquoise sea and nature’s green colors.
The island has a wealth of history and tradition. The Venetians, who ruled the island in the middle ages, named it “Flower of the East”.
It is the southernmost and third largest of the Ionian Islands. Its geographical position ensures easy travel to the other islands and Greece’s mainland.
Key sites/activities in the area
* Wine tasting from an exquisite selection of Greek and international wines, hand-picked by Lesante Blu’s sommelier!
* At Lesante Blu we can arrange private boat tour and tailor made excursions. A luxurious yacht or motorboat and experienced, discreet staff, take the guests from the hotel’s private boat platform to: the most famous tour around the island, the Shipwreck, the Blue Cave, to the near-by Marathonisi, or to more unexplored areas.
*local tours with our luxurious Range Rover with personal driver to visit breathtaking landscapes or island’s mountain side with the traditional villages
*Guests can enjoy a unique experience visiting the small island of Marathonisi . The islet of Marathonisi is a protected breeding area for the loggerhead sea turtle, which bears the scientific name “Caretta Caretta.” This beach is included in Zakynthos Marine Park because endangered sea turtles use just this stretch of sand every year to dig a total of 1,300 different nests in which to lay their eggs.
*The ‘Shipwreck’ beach, also known as “Navagio”, is one of the most famous Greek beaches in the world. The wreck of an old smugglers’ ship rests amongst the golden sand. The shipwreck lies gracefully on the beach to this day. The turquoise waters that embrace it together with the gold sand create a charming image, one that our guests will never forget.
*Explore the famous Blue Caves. Situated on the northern tip of the island, these natural arches and water-caves that have been cut out by tides over thousands of years, form a distinguished image of the kingdom of the sea. Swim and explore the caves one by one –a one-of-a-kind experience. Snorkeling and diving are also suggested so that you will fully capture the carefree water essence.
*Zante’s proud historical past is visible all around. Amazing architectural monuments are still an integral part of the island, contributing greatly to its charm. Many important historical figures have lived here, such as Dionysios Solomos who composed the Greek national anthem. Visit Kastro which is a Venetian fortress situated above the hill of Bochali. It is a beautiful heritage of long lost eras. It was built on the ruins of the island’s ancient acropolis, with its construction date estimated to be around 1480, after the Venetian occupation. The island’s east side offers a gorgeous mountainous experience that can make for an exciting road trip. Picturesque villages such as Loucha, dark green forests full of pine trees, high cliffs offering stunning views of the island and the precious sounds only mountain’s nature can form, create an once-in-a-lifetime experience.
