With regular travel currently off the cards, the MarBella Collection has launched brand new ‘armchair travel’ experiences, bringing the spirit of Greece and the hotels’ unique offering to guests at home. Working with key partners to design #AtHomeWithMarBella, families now have access to exciting activities curated by The Exploration Society, wellness enthusiasts can create their own beauty treatments at home, fitness fanatics can work out with the support of live streamed 3D classes, budding chefs can replicate the taste of Corfu with a traditional recipe and those looking for a bit of peace can sit quietly and mindfully colour in the hotel’ design.
Please see further details below of all experiences now available through AtHomeWithMarBella…
MarBella Collection is now offering mindfulness colouring-in of images of their three beautiful hotels and their surroundings, MarBella Corfu and MarBella Nido in Corfu and their new property MarBella Elix opening Summer 2020 in Parga. Let your imagination run free and dream of travel in stunning Greek nature.
In the current climate, whisking yourself away to your dream location for a spot of yoga on the docks or paddleboarding on the calm sea feels like a distant dream. But with MarBella Collection’s new mindfulness colouring, they’re bringing these dreams to life and to your own home. Colouring books for adults emerged as a trend early last year and now there are colouring books for practically any interest – and travel shouldn’t be left out of that. With a graphic designer brought in by the luxury hotel group you’ll be able to take a step away from your home working desktop and into a true travellers dream that’s personalised by you with your favourite colours, painting the picturesque surroundings of Corfu and Parga. Explore Greek’s top hotel group through the art of colour and allow yourself to paint a picture of your perfect sunset for the perfect mindful escape.

Home Made Beauty Recipes
With additional time to spare at home, keep on top of your beauty regime, with nature home made beauty recipes inspired by the spas at the MarBella Collection. Encompassing easy to find ingredients, turn your home into a relaxing spa destination. With a focus on natural products, the banana face mask is suitable for all skin types and has only three key ingredients, banana, honey and orange juice. A series of scrubs for body and face will keep skin smooth and moisturised during the time indoors and a night time face mask packed full of anti-oxidants like blueberries and active ingredients such a yoghurt will leave skin brighter and more refreshed. Incorporate these home spa tips into your relaxation regime. Take a few minutes to pamper yourself and enjoy the natural remedies which we hope will boost your mood and wellbeing whilst at home.
Create a Signature Dish from MarBella Nido at Home
MarBella Nido on the island of Corfu is known for its delicious gourmet and local cuisine. This adults only property prizes itself on offering fine dining with a Corfiot twist. The stand out favourite dish by far is the Chicken Pastisada. This is the perfect comfort food or Sunday meal to share with family or friends (or whoever you are currently in isolation with!). Focusing on a blend of traditional herbs and spices, close your eyes and imagine you are in Corfu. If you don’t have a mix of Pastisada spices to hand, mix your own with a blend as diverse as nutmeg, cumin and curry powder. This extra special traditional recipe is brought to you by our very own head chef with love from Corfu.

Family Fun at Home with MarBella and The Exploration Society
Keeping the family mentally and physically active at home is challenging. With this in mind, The MarBella Collection and London’s prestigious outdoor education provider The Exploration Society bring you a series of interactive videos to enjoy indoors or in any outdoor space you may have. The video series is designed to get kids moving and make learning fun, from hunting for clues in the garden using maths knowledge to basic survival skills, these easy to follow video guides will provide hours of fun.
In honour of the exciting partnership launching between the two companies in Greece for summer 2020, The Exploration Society aims to teach ‘life’ skills, not ‘hard’ skills, with its main focus on developing healthy and active attitudes in children – nurturing qualities such as resilience, positivity and co-operation.
