It is suitable for all age groups excluding those with walking difficulties due to the steep steps and those with a fear of heights. A popular wedding venue with its own chapel and wedding terrace, it is some distance from amenities but is in a location convenient for reaching many areas of the island.
Graduating over 4 storeys and built into the cliff face in typical Cycladic design using colours of warm lemon, beige and white. Balconies and terraces are of a reasonable size, all with a sea view, some with private plunge pools.

Reception is welcoming with a modern cosy feel in pastel colours, and brown leather sofas with a plasma TV. The tasteful restaurant has character and features brown wooden furnishings, eclectic artwork and floor to ceiling windows.
A staircase through the rock face leads to the spa, built into caves that were previously a winery, in natural, calming surroundings.
Various terraces with chunky wicker furnishings offer picture postcard views, thoughtfully unobstructed due to the use of clear glass barriers. Pools have metal stepped entry and are fairly compact, the infinity pool more of a plunge pool.
