Petasos Beach Resort & Spa
A cluster of white-washed buildings linked by pathways and terraces, the Petasos Beach Resort & Spa has been recently refurbished, so the public areas feel sleek and new. But it’s charming too, with shutters and balconies painted in blues, greens and browns, and pretty bougainvillea cascading down.
At this member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World you'll be welcomed at the mosaic lobby and taken through to the heart of the resort – a magazine-worthy two-tier pool with waterfall. Relax poolside on a shaded sun lounger, or on a huge white day bed at the outdoor lounge. The VIP Restaurant is stylish, light and airy and serves delicious fresh breakfasts and an à la carte Greek and international dinner menu. Grab a table on the lower terrace right at the cliff edge for the best sea views. Le Club Restaurant offers Mediterranean lunches and a pool bar specialises in classic cocktails – it’s known for its fruity daiquiris. Two of the island’s most popular beaches – busy, family-friendly Platis Gialos with a host of watersports, and upmarket Psarou, loved by locals and home to a famous beach restaurant – are just a five-minute walk away.
Rooms are minimalist with splashes of bright colour. There’s a vast choice, with features ranging from Jacuzzi baths or shared pools to private pools or a roof terrace. Classic Rooms are on the ground or first floor with garden views, while Standard Rooms have sea views. The Private Pool Suites are a highlight here, with curved infinity pools that merge with the horizon. At the top end, the luxurious Prince Pool Villa and Galaxy Pool Villa have design pieces, a private pool and huge chic roof terrace.
