No weather data found for [, ”Kos”, ”Kos, horizontal]
An extremely well presented, superior 4-star hotel, oozing with character and a relaxed, chilled-out atmosphere, standing out from the crowd.
Designed in the theme of a Venetian fortress, in keeping with the islands history, all internal areas are bright and airy, decorated and furnished in a polished style.
Charming grounds surround with appealing pool areas and a section on the beach. Suitable for most age groups appreciating a unique and tranquil property that has easy access to Kos Town. However, although it has children’s facilities, it has more of an adult-orientated feel.
Built in the style of a castle, with turrets on the roof, the property is immaculately maintained throughout, and attractively painted in white with touches of deep lemon.
The grand entrance matches the exterior in its style, with water fountain, dramatic archways and large windows. Balconies are concrete fronted and generously sized with white plastic furnishings.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Refurbished Year: 2008
The lobby is over 2 levels and features large glass windows which allow the natural light flood in, complementing the pale marble floors and walls. Classic burgundy and gold sofas, ornate black staircase railings and various potted plants complete the tasteful look.
Both the main bar and restaurant are decorated in shades of charcoal and rust with matching furnishings and artwork on the walls.
Attractive grounds are spacious, with expansive lawns, palm trees and colourful flowers creeping up the exterior walls. A children’s playground, crazy golf and tennis courts are located at the front of the property opposite the beach, where the hotel has its own section with sunbeds and a volleyball court.
Both pools have walk-in entry for ease of access, a spacious tiled surround for sunbeds, and an appealing swim-up pool bar and jacuzzi. The taverna and snack bar have modern wicker furnishings and the theatre is built as an authentic amphitheatre style.
Area Type: Hotel Platanista is located 100 metres along a quiet country lane from the main Kos Town coastal road, in the Psalidi area. The centre of Kos Town is 2.5km away and the yachting marina 1km. Both can be reached by the local bus that stops on the main road every 20 minutes.
