Danai Beach Resort occupies a private area of 40,000 m2 gifted with lush vegetation and an uninhibited view to the sea. On our garden grounds you have the opportunity to visit a Botanical Garden and a Tree & Flower Garden.
Many of the aromatic Herbs here found their way into natural healing or cosmetics. Others in into our cooking pots: in the kitchen, we cherish the unspoilt taste and quality of fresh, natural ingredients and seasonings that often originate from our very own grounds. Tendered by gentle hands and nourished by the Greek sun, our freshly plucked and cooked Greens add the original aromatic taste that an authentic Greek dish could wish for.
TREE & FLOWER GARDEN
The Resort is nestled into densely forested, green hills. The centuries-old pine trees that colonnade the premises are surrounded by numerous species of blooming trees and flowers perfuming the salty sea breeze. They welcome a population of swallows, native birds, owls and Squirrels to a cosy home in their crowns and thus entitle the feathered and furred guests to a long-term stay at Danai.
An entrance into the mountain cellar´s blackness leads 130 meters in the underground towards a green space collonaded by hundreds of years old Pine trees, the panorama of the Aegean and evergreen vines behind floor-to-ceiling doors.
Our Cellar and Vineyard is an experience venue beyond being a winsome atrium to tasting- memories awaiting to be poured. From where natural light floods the cellar, one follows into the darkness to discover wine mastery, philosophy and Greek history which are sheltered within the stone walls.
Our Vineyard is a blooming soil to bestow our own harvest. Until then, the young vines of grapes sway in the pine-infused sea breeze, tables invite to remain while the bottles are not to sojourn.
ABOUT THE TREES
Reading a cherished book in the shade of softly rustling palm leaves or posing for a family- photo in front of the Queen Magnolias: Nature never fails to provide picture-perfect surroundings.
Our olive trees are over 200 years old and stand firmly on the spot where they first broke through the soil. Together with the majestic Pine Trees dotted along the edge of the Cliff, they form the oldest inhabitants of the Garden.
Upon a new Spring, the Gardens gift us with sweet Oranges, ripe Kumquats and never fail to dip the Resort in a palette of a million colours.
