With the majority of our guests spending most of their day in the club, food and drink are an integral part of their holiday. Our four bars provide something for everyone, with our team serving a variety of healthy smoothies and juices, indulgent cocktails and plenty of cool, crisp rosé, whilst being the perfect hosts and getting to know our guests.
The Peligoni Bars
The Driftwood Bar is at the heart of the club: dispensing drinks for our restaurants during breakfast, lunch and dinner service as well as entertaining guests into the small hours.
Breakfast is served in the bar area overlooking the calm waters and early morning water skiers with talented baristas producing delicious hot coffees, smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. Lunch service is particularly busy with up to 300 guests dining each day during peak season and we regularly host up to 130 guests for dinner. With three separate restaurants for our guests to choose from, The Driftwood Bar provides a dispense bar for two of them as well as hosting evening events including our very own Peli Pub Quiz.
In addition to The Driftwood Bar, our bar team also look after The Courtyard. This is a beautiful space surrounded by lemon trees and olive groves. By day, The Courtyard serves up delicious BBQ dishes cooked over an open fire accompanied by plenty of Peli rosé. By night, it makes the perfect events space: cocktail receptions, party night dinners, wedding breakfasts, Guest Chef feasts and family festival nights. Open mic style live music accompanies pop up food stalls once a week where kids run around and make new friends and everyone enjoys a laid back evening of live music and tasty street food. With something different happening every evening, there’s never a dull moment.
