Your Destination

Located in a corner of rare natural beauty with tiny coves, green hills and deserted beaches, the Neilson Retreat offers an idyllic haven. The small port of Sivota is a ten-minute walk or short water taxi journey away, where you will find a relaxed laid back atmosphere.

Further afield are boat trips to Paxos and Antipaxos. An hour south of Sivota is Parga; bursting with history the impressive 14th century castle reflects the town's varied history between the Venetians and Ottomans.

Neilson Retreat Beachclub

Throughout the Neilson Retreat Beachclub grounds, great attention has been paid to landscaping with an abundance of flowers and trees adding to the natural beauty of the setting. Due to the spectacular setting of the retreat, steps are a feature of the property, from the pool there are approximately 100 steps down to the waterfront and steps link all other areas of the retreat, including the rooms. A collection of beaches forms the edge of the water sports area and a shallow sand bar allows access to the sailing beach on the tiny island of Mourtemeno just opposite.

Please note: due to the location, this resort may not be suitable for guests with walking difficulties.

Breakfast is served from 8am to 10am. There is a choice of fresh fruit, yogurt, juices, cereals, freshly made bread, local cheeses and preserves, as well as a variety of hot options cooked to order, such as pancakes and omelettes. If you fancy a lie-in, a continental style breakfast of tea, coffee, juice and pastries will still be available until 11am

The extensive lunchtime buffet served from 12:30pm to 2pm allows you the flexibility to enjoy a quick snack or a full sit down meal in the al fresco dining area. As an alternative, staff are happy to prepare you a packed lunch, enabling you to escape to a secluded beach for a picnic with family or friends.

Buffet style evening meals with a waiter service for drinks are available from 7:30pm to 9pm. Mineral water, plus tea and coffee are included with all meals.

Your Time

The sheltered waters and calm conditions make sailing for beginners ideal. Novice or expert water-skiers and wake boarders can make the most of the flat water throughout the day, with the premium package available to book for a supplement for those who are really keen.

For the more energetic, the Retreat is a particularly good option for those looking to enjoy a comprehensive fitness programme. There is often a guided bike ride, fitball, gym and tennis sessions, as well as road bikes, swim coaching, a dedicated triathlon training camp and specialist yoga weeks. One of the most popular activities is to take a kayak and explore the secluded coves surrounding the club. In the afternoon the sailing area extends beyond the island for intermediates to make the most of the breeze further out.

Alternatively, for a supplement you can book a Day Sail where a qualified skipper escorts you during a day of sailing where you can sit and relax or get a taste of yacht sailing under the guidance of the skipper.

As the sun dips in the sky, informal games of volleyball are organised, either in the pool or on the sand court. For those who prefer a gentler pace there is table tennis, boules or maybe a relaxing massage in the spa area before a pre-dinner cocktail.
