Nestled in Kalemya Cove, surrounded by fragrant pine forests and the twinkling Turquoise Sea, Hillside is a luxury hideaway and much-loved home away from home from visitors around the world. The beautifully appointed resort cocoons guests in contemporary comfort from the moment they arrive and the only thing on the agenda is the resort’s ethos of “feeling good”. With the heavenly backdrop of rolling green mountains and rugged countryside, coupled with the warm, crystal clear waters dancing in the sun make it easy to see why many describe Hillside as “Heaven on Earth”.
Another Day in Paradise
Innovative offerings, including the adult-only Silent Beach, which encourages guests to step away from their devices, and waiters who arrive at a sun lounger at the touch of a button, are just some of Hillside’s secrets to success. Those seeking true peace and respite can take a relaxing stroll through the forest to the second adult-only beach, Serenity, or hop on the boat for the five-minute trip. Here, all you need is a book for company as you sink back in a hammock listening to the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore. Find inner calm during a beach yoga class as the sun rises or zen out with a guided meditation. The ultimate in pampering is just a little further away at the Sanda Spa or Sanda Nature Spa. Indulge in a deep tissue massage in a tree-top treatment room to the backdrop of birdsong- heaven!
A Remarkable Stay
Returning to the heart of the resort, the main beach buzzes with activity and laughter. Children and their families spend precious time together at Hillside, chatting over fresh Mediterranean meals, on hiking explorations or while marvelling at nearby ancient historical sites just a stone’s throw away. Parents spend quality time as a couple, relaxing over a glass of wine, safe in the knowledge that little ones are being expertly looked after and endlessly entertained. Children smile and cheer as they learn new skills, from sailing to film making and robot building, there’s something for every little traveller. As the sun sets, families cosy up under star-studded skies to watch films screened over the water each week, the ideal end to another day in paradise. Once a year, the bay is transformed into a spectacular stage for a Classical Music on the Sea Concert. Beautiful sounds fill the air for this once-in-a-lifetime experience- one of many that see many happy guests check in to Hillside year after year. The resort’s impressive 68% repeat guest ratio has even seen it recognised as a Harvard Business School case study.
