Located a short stroll from the crystal clear waters of Kavos Beach, Ekati Mare first opened its doors travellers in 1990.

The chic boutique hotel in southern Corfu began as a small apartment complex and has expanded steadily over the years.

Owned by the Tsoukias family, Ekati Mare Boutique Resort has a planned expansion for the summer of 2024, when 40 new swim-up suites will be added to the property.

The hotel is just steps from the Kavos Strip, known for having the best nightlife on the island. It’s the perfect spot for nighthawks looking to dance into the wee hours of the morning at the lively clubs and bars that are a short 10 minute walk away.

Where Is Ekati Mare Corfu?

Ekati Mare is located in breezy Kavos, which is the southernmost seaside village on the island of Corfu. It is conveniently located a short 3-minute walk to Kavos Beach.

Ekati Mare Hotel is located just south of the Port of Lefkimmi, which offers direct ferry routes to the island of Paxos and Ladochori on the mainland.

Since the early post-war era, it has gained popularity as a resort heavily devoted to tourism and is popular with young tourists mostly from Britain, Germany and Northern Europe who come here to bask in sun on the beach.


Kavos Village is filled with local restaurants, shops and bars. It is considered one of the most popular entertainment hubs in Corfu since many dance clubs stay open until the wee hours of the morning.

The sandy beach of Kavos is ideal for swimming and water sports. Many lovely beaches are also found in the area, like nearby Agios Georgios Argyradon and Issos.

Ekati Mare is the first hotel you see when driving into town. It’s removed enough from the heart of Kavos village that you don’t have to worry about loud nightclubs keeping you awake at night.

While we saw some children and families at the hotel the vibe is more millennial. During the day upbeat DJ beats play at the pool, offering a nod to Kavos being a destination for those who like to dance all night.

Since Corfu is a sun destination most guests come here to spend the day sipping cocktails and reading a book by the pool. You can also pay to visit popular beach clubs for the day if swimming through salt water is more your thing.

The hotel has 2 bars (at the restaurant and by the pool), which serve elevated cocktails, local Greek wine and craft beer.


The onsite restaurant serves a standard complimentary breakfast buffet each morning as well as an all day menu of a la carte dishes for lunch and dinner. You’ll find everything from traditional Greek recipes like souvlaki to pasta, pizza and burgers.

During the summer high season Ekati Mare Boutique Resort puts on a series of fun weekly programs like sunset celebrations with live music, Sunday Brunch, barbecue by the pool and movie night under the stars.
