Kanali Studios and Apartments  


This place has a beachside setting and a pool with a view. Plus, its restaurant does great Greek food and live shows.

The Kanali is on a low, rocky outcrop, just a few steps above a sandy beach. The pool gets uninterrupted sea views and there’s a great restaurant with regular entertainment.

The apartments are in the quieter Canal d’Amour area of Sidari, about a 15-minute walk from the main strip. Walk in the opposite direction from town and you’ll soon reach a cluster of sandy coves.

Nothing is too much trouble!! Excellent Place!!

We visited Sidari 4 years ago and wanted to revisit, after reading reviews on the Kanali we thought we would give it a go. Well I'm so pleased we did it was lovely. From the moment i booked they were helpful. I emailed regarding a few things and they were quick to reply. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The place itself is very clean and tidy and well maintained it is in the perfect location over looking the sea and just a short walk to all the restaurants and shops. The Greek night and the rock night are not to be missed we attended them both weeks. You will find that the people staying at the Kanali are very friendly and alot of them have probably stayed there many times before. to be honest if I go back to Sidari I would not stay anywhere else! What really makes this place though is the staff! Each and everyone of them are so caring attentive. They make every single person there feel comfortable and welcome. We had some devastating news while on holiday and they were so understanding and just let you know that they cared and were there if you needed them. My son was also admitted to hospital in corfu town. The staff gave him a lift as he struggled to get a taxi. This is what I mean they will do what ever they can to help and support you. You will not go wrong by booking this hotel they are always booked up as they are in my eye Number 1! I thank you all at Kanali for making our stay rememberable and I hope to visit you again in the future x x x Kellie, Pete, Deck, Jenna, Ash and AndreaMore

Total relaxation

Kanali Apts are on a quiet, beautiful bay, right on the edge of Sidari (and that's a good thing!). It's the type of place that you wish you could stay for a long, long time and you'd hardly miss the rest of the world. The apartments are simple but clean, you could do some basic self-catering, but not a lot. But why bother, there's loads of restaurants within a few minutes walk or just eat at Aquarius on site which is as good as most. Air conditioning works well and is needed more to block out noise from the bar next door than the heat. Try to get the bay facing building on the second or third floor for the best of the stunning view. The pool is lovely and there always seemed to be enough sun loungers. Kanali is a quiet, family place (mostly older kids). The only exception is Wednesday nights when Nikos (one of the owners) and his band puts on an excellent Rock Night. How many groups can get away with Pink Floyd? They can and do! The USP of Kanali and Aquarius Restaurant is the incredible friendliness of the owners and staff. They create an happy, relaxing and convivial atmosphere that makes you want to stay forever! Well done! Sidari itself is an OK resort, fairly low-key but has lots of restaurants and bars, mostly geared for Brits. The excursions to other places on the island are good value and fun.More

The rooms themselves are compact and bijou, simple and tidy which suited my visit perfectly as I only planned to use the room as a sleeping place. The view from all rooms is beautiful as you look over the ocean where you can see the mountains of Albania. The pool is refreshing and quiet even during the middle of the day. The families here are respecting of others and also seen to be very happy. Furthermore the restaurant area is very open and friendly also with views of the ocean as well as consistently serving outstanding dishes from a vast and varied menu. Lastly the area of Sidari is warm and welcoming with great bars and restaurants which have beachfront seating areas to be enjoyed by all of the family. I would highly recommend Kanali appartments and will definitely be coming back here!More

Ben J,

Fantastic holiday!

The Kanali Apartments are situated in a perfect location with stunning views of Canal D'amour. There is a restaurant on site serving beautiful Greek food and is reasonably priced. The staff are LOVELY! There is a rock night every Wednesday and a Greek night on a Tuesday which are both excellent (they are free events but booking is required if you want a table as they get very busy). The rooms are basic but are clean and have everything you need. The pool is great and there are plenty of sun beds and parasols. Food and drink are available all day from 9am. There are plenty if local supermarkets, bars and restaurants as well as several companies to book trips with. A visit to Corfu town is highly recommended and can be booked for as little as 6 euros per person. It takes over an hour to get there but is worth it. Greek people are friendly and the customer service everywhere in Sidari is fantastic. Myself and 12 other members of my family came back from our holiday at Kanali Appartments yesterday and I am already thinking about going back which is an indication of how good it is. Thanks to all the staff, especially Spiros, Kelly, Crazy George (100%!!!), little George, Niko and Super Mario. You're all great and made our holiday extra special! I hope to see you all again soon.More

Fantastic holiday

Just returned from 2 weeks holiday at the Kanali apartments we travelled with friends all in our fifties, the apartments were comfortable and cleaned regularly they were spotless. we could still get a sunbed around the pool at lunchtime and had the most amazing view from our balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. The food at the Aquarius was lovely and well presented. Spiros and George made us feel like friends within a couple of days of being there. Nicos was so helpful with any queries we had and on our last day we asked to keep our rooms on till pickup time for the airport unfortunately our rooms were booked out to other guests but Nicos moved us into one of the 2 bedroom apartments that we could use at a small charge right up till pick up time, which meant we had a full day around the pool. Everything about this holiday was fantastic from start to finish and all the surrounding restaurant's had really good quality food with plenty of variety. The thing that made the difference was the friendliness of all the staff at the kanali and the Aquarius. We will definitely be returning. Thank you all for a wonderful time. Thanks again the Lancashire lot.More
