Ultima Collection, the luxury operator with hotels, residences, and spas across the most sought-after destinations in Europe, expanded their portfolio with the addition of a new property, Ultima Corfu on 1 June 2020. Perched on a dramatic hillside looking out over the Ionian Sea, Ultima Corfu constitutes the brand’s first beachside residence, and is a serene retreat, affording guests an opportunity to escape, switch off, and reground themselves in a Greek paradise, far from the cares and worries of their everyday lives.
A heaven of tranquility located on the shores of the Ionian Sea, Ultima Corfu takes the form of an elegantly appointed private villa available for single-group bookings, and ideal for families or groups of friends. Spread over 1,000 square meters, the property seamlessly blends the outdoor landscape with the indoors, and boasts uninterrupted views of the rugged coastline and crystal-clear waters of the deep blue sea.
As guests enter the sublime property, they are greeted by a spacious living area, decorated in a monochrome color palette with minimalist yet signature Ultima Collection design – allowing the unspoilt views to take center stage, visible through the floor to ceiling windows that frame the property. The two 20m sea-facing infinity pools is the crowning feature of the expansive wraparound terrace. Situated on separate tiers of the terrace, yet located just steps away from each other, the pools offer guests the chance to either socialise together or enjoy the peace and quiet. The villa also includes two outdoor lounges and an al fresco dining area, perfect for enjoying sundowners and Mediterranean feasts with the striking view of the Ionian sunset as a backdrop.
Set over two levels, allowing for multiple perspectives of the view, Ultima Corfu welcomes guests in six bedrooms, including one master bedroom with private terrace. All bedrooms features en-suite bathrooms and dressing-rooms. Remarkable ornate Grecian features and materials adorn the magnificent white interiors, subtly decorated with a typically Mediterranean colour palette. Fitness enthusiasts who want to maintain their training regime whilst on holiday, have access to a fully equipped fitness studio and an ‘on-demand’ personal trainer. In keeping with Ultima’s wellness offering, the villa also includes an impressive Hammam for holistic heated therapies, a Jacuzzi, as well as the Ultima Spa by Swiss Perfection massage and treatment amenities.
On request, the team can organize boat transfers or rent a yacht to enjoy the beautiful Ionian sea. Romantic sunset cruises, exciting and adventurous day trips, or lazy sun-soaked days await guests, all in all making for a truly unforgettable experience.
During their stay, guests of Ultima Corfu will be able to explore the picturesque seaside villages of this ancient Greek island, hidden islets and wild natural landscapes. The villa’s personal concierge will be on hand throughout the stay, and can arrange private excursions to some of the island’s most beautiful spots. Whether guests want to take in Corfu’s imposing palaces and charming squares, or simply want to while away their days visiting sandy coves and bathing in the pristine waters, a curated catalogue of guest experiences will be available to cater to all tastes.
Included as part of the villa will be the supreme Ultima services with daily full luxury breakfast, daily afternoon tea, 24-hour concierge, housekeeping, service staff, laundry, and round-trip airport transfers.
The launch of Ultima Corfu brings to six the total number of properties within the Ultima Collection, which currently includes luxury ski hotels and residences in the majestic Alps and the new urban retreat on the shores of Lake Geneva. It will further establish Ultima Collection as one of the world’s leading and most visionary luxury hospitality groups.
