Best Golf Resorts in the World
Golf heads up the list of activities at this lively resort overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
It's not often that one associates golf with romance, but at this beautiful resort, it can't be helped. The 18-hole golf course overlooks the site where Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is said to have emerged from the sea. Golfers are sure to feel the love (of the game) as they play this set of fairways, which were built on two plateaus divided by a ravine. Bunkers, tiered greens, olive trees and Mediterranean views are part of every round here. For players who need advice on their swing, the Golf Academy features PGA-qualified pros. And for those who want to balance out their tee times with other activities, the family-oriented resort also has a tennis academy, a destination spa and a beach club just a complimentary shuttle ride away. Rates include breakfast and dinner, and guests can enjoy a range of restaurants, from Ifestos (Greek cuisine served poolside) to Jasmine (fine Asian fare).
