Ultima Collection to Launch First Beachside Retreat, Ultima Corfu
2 April 2020 – Ultima Collection, the luxury operator with hotels, residences, and spas across the most sought-after destinations in Europe, will expand their portfolio with the addition of a new property, Ultima Corfu, scheduled to open on 1 June 2020. Perched on a dramatic hillside looking out over the Ionian Sea, Ultima Corfu will constitute the brand’s first beachside residence, and will be a serene retreat, allowing guests to escape, switch off, and reground themselves in a Greek paradise.
A heaven of tranquillity located on the shores of the Ionian Sea, Ultima Corfu will be an elegantly appointed private villa available for single-group bookings, and ideal for families or groups of friends. Spread over 1,000 square metres, the property will seamlessly blend the outdoor landscape with the indoor spaces, and will boast uninterrupted views of the rugged coastline and crystal-clear waters of the deep blue sea.
As guests enter the property, they will be greeted by a spacious living area, which will be decorated with the signature Ultima Collection design, combined with a monochromatic colour palette, allowing the unspoilt views to take centre stage. The two 20m sea-facing infinity pools will be 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 will also include 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 sea views, Ultima Corfu will sleep 12 guests in six bedrooms, including two master bedrooms with private terraces. All bedrooms will feature en- suite bathrooms and dressing-rooms. Ornate Grecian features and materials will adorn the white interiors, subtly decorated with a typical Mediterranean colour palette. Fitness enthusiasts will have access to a fully equipped fitness studio and an ‘on-demand’ personal trainer. In keeping with Ultima’s wellness offering, the villa will also include an impressive Hammam for holistic heated therapies, a Jacuzzi, as well as the Ultima Spa massage and treatment amenities.
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.
Also included as part of the offering will be the supreme Ultima services with daily breakfast and afternoon tea, 24-hour concierge, housekeeping, service staff, laundry, and round-trip airport transfers.
The launch of Ultima Corfu will bring to six the total number of properties within the Ultima Collection, which currently includes luxury ski hotels and residences in the Alps and the new urban retreat on the shores of Lake Geneva. It is set to further establish Ultima Collection as one of the world’s leading and most visionary luxury hospitality groups.
