The Food: Verina Suites prides itself on a breakfast menu that’s prepared with local/seasonal ingredients from the island and Greece: local breads, honey, fantastic yogurt, housemade jams, an array of Greek omelets, cereals, coffee, tea, fresh squeezed orange juice and a willingness to even prepare off-menu items to help you feel at home.

Lunch and dinner menus offer traditional Greek and international dishes with the Chef’s own twists and there’s a daily special.

The Drinks: lots of soft drinks and juices from Greece and the west, Greek and international beer brands, a well-stocked wine list with some of Greece’s best and a bar staff that knows how to make those poolside cocktails like mojitos as you laze by the pool.

Additional Activities: Verina Suites can arrange a private boat for you to go explore the coastline of Sifnos and some neighboring islands. You can go on a guided tour of the many paths on the island, take in a pottery class (Sifnos is famous for its pottery). If you want to keep up with your yoga, Verina’s got that covered too!
