This charming hotel commands a remarkable position on the island, situated in the middle of a beautiful bay, 800 m from the picturesque St. Paul's bay and church, 1 km from the village of Lindos and 2 km from the resort of Pefkos. Diagoras Airport is some 50 km from the hotel, whose interior blends simple chic with classic Greek style. The hotel is built in bungalow style and offers 40 rooms, all with their own private balcony or veranda. The rooms are elegant and in keeping with the simple nature of the Greek islands, but fitted with all modern necessities. The swimming pool is surrounded by gardens, set against the red volcanic rock of the mountainside and has its own views of the spectacular bay of Psaltos. Guests can enjoy a drink at the poolside snack bar and relax with the sun loungers and parasols laid out ready for use.
A superb breakfast buffet is served in the airy dining room or al fresco beneath the shade of the pretty pergola. If preferred, breakfast can be enjoyed in the comfort of your room. The poolside snack bar serves up delightful snacks and thirst-quenching tipples all day.
Balmy Rhodian evenings are ideal for enjoying the dinner buffet outdoors, or the town of Lindos has many traditional tavernas and other Mediterranean restaurants. The town and its beaches also play host to a variety of bars for decadence after dark.
Most of the 40 rooms of the Lindos Sun have their own private veranda, with many boasting views over the glittering ocean. Coolly decorated in crisp, striking white, the rooms provide absolute sanctuary from the intense midday sun, and offer a simple chic space to rest after a day of island enjoyment. The more premium rooms also come with plunge pools on the veranda for tranquil, private relaxation.
The rooms have luxury bathrooms with massage showers or jet tubs, and extra touches such as tablet computers provided upon request and massage services ordered to rooms give the experience a personal feel.
The historic town of Lindos is just a 5-minute drive away and plays host to many ancient landmarks such as the Acropolis of Lindos in the citadel ruins, the Archokrateio monument and the Ancient Theatre of Lindos. The pretty town is a warren of pretty cobblestone streets, great for exploring on an afternoon of shopping and bar-hopping.
Lindos beach and Pallas beach are just down the hillside from the town, or further south down the coast is St. Pauls beach, popular with the locals, just a couple of minutes' drive from the hotel (1.5 km). Movie buffs will delight at the fact that the hotel overlooks the beaches where the ‘Guns of Navarone’ was filmed.
The city of Rhodes is a 1 hour drive from the hotel, and is brimming with historical sites, diverse eateries and exciting nightlife, as well as pretty, yacht-filled harbours and sandy beaches. Hiring a car is an ideal way of exploring the island, or equally take a boat trip the town of Lindos to see the hidden beaches along the island’s rugged coastline.
