F ZEEN RETREATS’ boutique hotels provide a luxurious backdrop for a couples’ getaway. For honeymoons, babymoons or proposals, F ZEEN RETREATS family-run adults-only boutique hotels, are nothing short of idyllic.

Rooted in wellness, nature, and embracing the slower pace of life, F ZEEN KEFALONIA allows a moment to pause and realign mind, body, and soul under the Grecian sun. Occupying a dazzling spot, draped across the pine tree-jewelled Mount Ainos, cascading down to the sandy Lourdas Bay, F ZEEN KEFALONIA makes a picturesque setting for a romantic retreat.


F ZEEN KEFALONIA fuses the family’s Grecian heritage with South African roots which has largely influenced the minimalist aesthetic. Think: plenty of polished cement and stone walls, that harmonise with the island's natural beauty.This quietly luxurious design filters through to the neutral-hued bedrooms, true havens of relaxation and tranquillity.

Guests can dine at the hotel’s two restaurants, both of which celebrate the natural bounty of Kefalonia, using homegrown vegetables, fruit, and herbs harvested from the Chef’s garden. Dishes are healthy yet hearty, centred around the flavours of local produce. Gaia offers rustic daytime dining, and this year the team will enhance the culinary offering with the introduction of an open grill. Feast on a medley of Greek-with-a-twist small plates, fresh from a dip in one of the hotel’s three pools. Selini is a more formal affair, putting tradition at the heart of its Mediterranean fare, coupled with panoramic views over the twinkling Ionian sea. The true definition of a romantic dinner setting.

Wellness is a key pillar of the F ZEEN RETREATS experience, encouraging guests to recharge and reconnect with themselves, ensconced in the hotel’s sprawling gardens. Four outdoor decks play host to reformer pilates, yoga (with classes suitable for expectant mothers), and healing sound bath rituals accompanied by the soundtrack of lapping waves to restore equilibrium. Recharged, book in for a restorative couples’ ritual to reconnect with your loved one in the hotel’s subterranean Idor Spa. From the Couple’s Ritual — a hammam followed by a deep tissue massage — to The Harmony Ritual —  a soothing peach bathing followed by invigorating scrub — each treatment promises a multisensory experience utilising fragrant local products.

For the ultimate romantic getaway, guests can book the ‘CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE’ package. Bookable across a variety of accommodations, from garden rooms to suites, it incorporates a bottle of champagne, floral bouquet and sweet treats on arrival to set the tone for your stay. It also includes a 90 minute couples spa treatment, a romantic degustation menu for two curated from the Chef’s Menu, and private transfers to and from the hotel to ensure you truly luxuriate in style.
