Skiathos Princess Hotel & Aegean Suites Hotel
Two luxury properties offering different wedding experiences on the pretty pine-covered island of Skiathos.
With its dream beachside location, superb Greek hospitality and promise of discreet luxury, it’s no surprise that the 5* Skiathos Princess Hotel was such a hit with the Mamma Mia stars when they stayed!
This classy, family-friendly resort prides itself on going that extra mile to make sure everyone in your wedding party feels as special as you do.
The Princess’s sister property - the Aegean Suites Hotel – delivers something a little different.
An exclusive 5* all-suite boutique hotel, the Aegean has all the feel of a private residence with its perfect blend of cool, contemporary Mediterranean chic and an away-from-it-all, relaxed vibe.
Skiathos Princess Hotel
Each of the 132 individually designed rooms and suites have private balconies overlooking the sea or stunning gardens and come complete with luxury bath products, fluffy robes and complimentary wi-fi.
A few steps from your room lies the beautiful beach with its balmy, sparkling water & a range of water sports. Or if you’re simply after a luxuriant laze, you could just chill with a refreshing cocktail without even leaving your lounger.
Lunch at the stylish beach taverna is a relaxed affair with the freshest seafood and salads. In the evenings the taste sensation continues with choices ranging from local Mediterranean to Asian - all freshly cooked in front of you.
Families are superbly catered for at the Skiathos Princess with roomy bedrooms and suites as well as kids clubs and a crèche - fully supervised by qualified nursery nurses.
For the ultimate romantic honeymoon, the Presidential Suite is a must. With a spacious teak wood terrace, open air Jacuzzi, uninterrupted sea views, living room, dining area and full open bar... need we say more?!
"I wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help organising our wedding and making it look so beautiful on the day! We had an amazing day and night thanks to you and the staff at the Princess!" (Jo & Simon May 2010)
Aegean Suites Hotel
A boutique hotel designed exclusively for grown ups, the Aegean Suites is a hidden retreat tucked away just outside Skiathos town.
Perched on a quiet hillside, the property has just 20 suites overlooking the crystal waters of the Aegean. Truly personal service is on offer and you’ll never feel better looked after, especially on the big day!
Interiors are light, airy and spacious - tiled floors, crisp white furnishings, original artwork and breathtaking sea views from every suite.
There’s a stunning pool with poolside bar renowned for its signature cocktails and smoothies. And if you fancy a wander, the bustling town of Skiathos is just a kilometre away with its picture postcard port, buzzing nightlife and enough restaurants and shops to keep everyone entertained.
For some quality quiet time a deux, take a private boat to explore unspoiled islands and bask on remote sandy beaches. When you get back, treat yourself to the finest Mediterranean cuisine at the Aegean’s own gourmet restaurant.
