One of my favourite destinations to visit for guaranteed sun during the summer holidays is Greece. From relaxing trips with my family to fun and silly ones with friends, Greece is an idyllic country to visit, especially during the summer months. Here is a guide to three island destinations to add to your travel bucket list, as well as four stunning hotel recommendations for these hotspots, so that you can travel in style too!


Located in the heart of the Cyclades, Mykonos is renowned for its cosmopolitan luxuriousness. As well as being an ideal destination to soak up the sun whilst relaxing on the beach, it is also known for its exuberant nightlife, with endless beach parties and world-renowned DJs in attendance at club nights that continue till the early hours of the morning. If you are looking for some liveliness next summer, Mykonos is the place for you. 

When it comes to where to stay in Mykonos, Louis Hotels has two distinct properties within their Exclusive Collection, that offer a secluded 5-star getaway in the midst of the madness of Mykonos. Once In Mykonos evolved from a celebrated villa into a luxury hotel, offering guests a unique and authentic Greek experience. Located above Ornos Beach, this hotel is the perfect location to relax and unwind under the summer sun. For a modern and stylish stay, look no further than Mykonos Theoxenia. Neighboured by the Aegean Sea coastline, this property is steps away from the unbounded hedonism of Mykonos town, creating an ideal base to explore, whilst enjoying all the luxuries of a 5-star hotel. 


The largest island in Greece, Crete offers an impressive range of things to do and see, from its glorious beaches, mountains, and valleys, to its rich history and culture. There is so much more to Crete than just the sun and sand, as the island is packed with ancient ruins and bustling towns. If you enjoy a beach holiday with a side of culture and intrigue, I would definitely recommend Crete as your next destination. 

Another property in the Louis Hotels Exclusive Collection is Asterion Suites & Spa, which seeks to celebrate Crete’s unique culture and combine it with modern, sophisticated hospitality. With a dreamy beachfront location, the hotel takes inspiration from Crete’s natural beauty, creating an idyllic place to stay during your time in Crete. 


Zante is home to stunning beaches, wild nature, and the popular party town of Zante. Enjoy its amazing golden sand beaches, and take in the incredible landscape that surrounds the island. If you’re looking for a wild night out, the island is also famed for its exuberant nightlife, with a range of all-night bars and clubs for visitors to enjoy. Definitely a bucket list destination for a silly trip with friends this summer. 

New kid on the block! King Jason Zante will open later this year, and is sure to become the ultimate hotspot destination for 2024. The fourth hotel in the Louis Hotels Exclusive Collection, King Jason Zante is perfect for a romantic getaway, set in some extraordinary modern architecture, nestled amongst the stunning nature of the island. For a luxurious, tranquil stay in Zante, King Jason will definitely have to go on my list.
