The Saladi Beach Hotel

We had found a wonderful beach South of Nafplio, where we spent a couple of days not only hiking but also visiting a hotel. Actually we were parking directly in front of it, just that it was closed, and that already for years. A tour through the hotel took us past the pool and reception and up many floors until we reached the rooftop with a magnificent view.

Welcome to Saladi Beach!

Once a luxurious hotel with pool, tennis courts, open air theatre, bungalows and much more, it is now a ruin, abandoned and vandalised. The owner once expected to make good money with nudists as guests, until religious moralists extorted the complete ban of nudism in Greece in 1980. It seems the hotel continued for “clothed” guests until it had to close in 1996.

  1. It looks horrible. But there is a wrong information. It coudn’t be closed in 1996 because I was there at summer 2000. I’m recognising reception, but rest is mystery. I remember room, big restaurant with great food, shop where we buy suvenires, out side big pool, tenis, it was near to see. Around this hotel wasn’t anything, any shops, any city. It was empty. For teenagers it was verry borring but for many other people it could be great place for rest. I’m shocked that was closed and owners abandoned it and they let to devastaded this. When did it really close?? Im very interesting.
    Ps. I’m sorry for my English 🤣 I can’t find photos, but if I find I show you them.

    1. Dear Justyna, Thanks for your reply, it was interesting to hear about your stay there. Fotos of the good old times would be great.

    I was at the hotel in 2000. There were colonies there. The pool and courts worked. I’m sending some pics. We lived on the 7th floor. The view from the window is insane. There was a chapel and a tavern nearby.

  3. This was still open in 1998 – we spent a month there, a summer camp for school kids
    The amphitheatre area was used as a disco
