Only when you book with Chic
This hotel has a spectacular setting of nature and history for its distinctive accommodation: it nestles within the high above the ancient Lindos Acropolis and offers a panorama of the Aegean Sea and distant coastline. Adapting the early 17th century Lindian architecture, this Lindos luxury hotel is uniquely enriched with an array of detail throughout hand carved stone facades, elaborate carved woodwork, hand-painted ceramics, as well as decorative painted ceilings. Massive stone walls support the guests' private terraces paved with pebble mosaics. On terraces overlooking the Aegean and the distant coastline, the twelve suites of hotel share the same traditional 17th century style.
A thoroughly Greek breakfast of breads, pittas, fruit, yoghurt, homemade jam and honey with robust coffee and freshly-squeezed orange juice is made all the more lavish enjoyed on the hotel’s rooftop. You could also opt for more continental cereals and grilled sandwiches to start the day, whilst admiring panoramic views of the shimmering Lindos bay.
The hotel’s award-winning restaurant also serves up exemplary Mediterranean dishes when dusk draws in. Changing with the seasons, local produce, such as a feta, ricotta and aegina nuts feature prominently on the delectable menu.
Only a few minutes walk away is the pretty, whitewashed town of Lindos that sits below the ancient fortifications. The town hosts a multitude of diverse restaurants peppered among its cobblestone streets.
The 12 suites are individually decorated in old-world character, yet the traditional raised beds and intricately carved furnishings sit comfortably with modern touches of waterfall showers and coffee and tea facilities. The rooms come with fluffy bathrobes, slippers and luxury bathroom products by O.Live.
The Honeymoon suite is particularly magnificent. An Aladdin's cave of elaborate furniture, tapestries, ornaments and plush seating, as well as a large hammam-style shower room and sink basin of beautiful hand-painted marble.
A few minutes gentle amble down the hillside will bring you to the golden sand beaches of Lindos to the west and the smaller Pallas to the east. The locals’ favourite beach spot of St. Pauls is just a 5-minute drive away (1 km).
A short hike up the hillside to the impressive Acropolis and Temple of Athena is unmissable - part of its building complex dates back to 300 BC. - and the nearby sites of the Ancient Theatre and Archokrateio monument will delight history-lovers.
Daydreamers and book-lovers will enjoy Melenos’s large pergola area scattered with plush cushions and shaded by lush vines with brightly coloured lanterns that sway idly in the warm breeze.
Car rental can be organised with the hotel prior to arrival. Driving around Rhodes is highly recommended to get the most out of freely exploring this historic island.
