The MarBella Collection, a group of three five-star hotels situated in Greece, has unveiled a series of new and exclusive culinary experiences.

The brand’s third property, MarBella Elix, will open its doors for the first time this April, in the Parga region of mainland Greece, representing the collection’s first hotel outside the island of Corfu.

New offerings, curated to immerse travellers in local culture and traditions, include a culinary series of renowned Greek chefs abroad, ‘discovery dining’ adventures and Greek cooking lessons wine tastings.

Greek Chefs Abroad: A Culinary Series

The series of pop-up gourmet events will be hosted by renowned Greek chefs returning from abroad to work their magic in the hotel kitchens.

The culinary series will take place across all three hotels with a all-star lineup of Michelin-starred chefs who will be bringing their unique Greek flair to work with the hotel chefs and curate unique events centred around authentic Mediterranean food with an international twist.

The series will take place from May through to September with experiences including intimate tasting dinners, book signings, cooking classes, olive oil tastings and wine pairing evenings.

Dining Discovery Adventures

Available at all hotels, MarBella Collection will be inviting guests on a ‘Local Dining Discovery’ adventure accessed via sea or road, transporting travellers to nearby Tavernas. Here fresh, locally sourced ingredients will be brought together to create a traditional feast for the senses.

For those looking for something a little closer to home, the new Deck Bar & Grill – MarBella Corfu’s brand-new bohemian style beach restaurant – will be offering an enticing selection of grilled fish and meat dishes.

Guests of MarBella Nido can also unwind with Greek sweet treats and a cup of traditional Greek coffee at the hotel’s new sitting corner, situated near the onsite chapel and resembling a typical Greek Kafeneio.

MarBella Nido is also launching a series of Greek cooking lessons and wine tasting evenings. An opportunity to master the art of the perfect Pastitsada, one of Corfu island’s signature pasta dishes, chefs will introduce guests to the art of traditional Corfiot and Greek cuisine.
