Dear Guests,
I welcome you to our country Greece, our island Kefalonia , to Lara hotel and I wish you a good and memorable stay.

I wish to inform guest who honored Lara hotel with their presence in the past, as well guests that make us honor for the first time, that the hotel is now under new ownership and management.

What is also new, is our perception of hospitality, service, facilities, products, anticipated or not, something that returning guests will excitedly find out, while along with the first time visitors will have the opportunity to experience what Greeks mean, when we “open up our house door”.

Nevertheless, all of the above have been achieved to a possible extend, since, as you can understand, despite our greatest and best of intentions and efforts, the time available to implement all of our desired plans, was minimum.

As of the coming year 2020, we will be having plenty of news, which we are already looking forward to sharing with you.

Until then, enjoy now your holidays and I personally, as well as all the Lara hotel staff, commit to contribute the most to this.
