From the first moment you arrive at this hotel on Paros, you will be blown away by its refined beauty, which embodies cycladic simplicity. There are clean lines everywhere you look and beautifully manicured plant life to compliment it all. The hotel is large and airy, allowing guests to roam throughout its grounds and also letting in lots of warm sun at perfect angles. Furthermore, the hotel is in a great location, nestled between Naoussa and Parikia, allowing easy access to both. The famous Kolibithres beach is just a stone’s throw away as well and it only took us 15 minutes from the hotel to reach the iconic village of Lefkes. The room was especially spacious and comfotable, with a coffee machine, lots snacks and a modern design that complimented the polished exteriors. Even better were the amenities, with the pool being a special highlight. Seriously, there is a reason this hotel was featured on the cover of Condé Nast- it is an architectural delight. Although there is much to see on Paros, part of me wanted to just spend my trip at the hotel. The staff in particular were probably the friendliest I have ever met. Every single one of them, from those at the front desk to those by the pool and even the woman running the lobby’s shop were all a delight to be around and totally enhanced our stay with efficient service. It is rare that I have felt so welcome at a hotel. if any of the staff are reading this, thank you for making the finale of our trip such a delight.
