A unique landmark that stands out amongst its local competitors due to its unusual shape. Chic and ultra modern in its public areas since the renovation, it has a relaxed resort feel and is sure to delight clients of most age groups who appreciate trendy interiors with arty touches.
Unlike many of the other hotels on this coastal road, the pool area is at the side of the property rather than the front, which eliminates the road noise.
9-storey cylindrical dome building in earthy tones of terracotta and lemon with ivy covering some parts and concrete fronted balconies. Single-storey bungalows with Mediterranean blue doors are located by the pool and house the mini club. The ground-floor of the main building in this area has large arched windows also in the same blue.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
Built Year: 1978
Modern and stylish interior throughout. The spacious lobby and marble reception in creams, browns and terracotta has a floor to match and is complimented by beige and brown comfy furnishings in chord and leather.
Along the walls are appealing floor to ceiling prints of various Rhodes Town scenes in old fashioned sepia, blending with the surrounding colour scheme. The main bar is located down a few steps with dark brown patterned wallpaper, metallics and funky lighting.
The large main restaurant features grey ash and dark wood furniture with lime green seating and table covers, set off by the sterile white walls and olive trees. There is an indoor pool with treatment beds by its side and 2 compact gym rooms with a few machines and some free weights.
The front of the property features a crazy golf course interspersed with some high palms which separates it from the main road. There are some lawn areas that are patchy in places, various trees and flowerbeds with some romantic wooden seating areas.
The attractive pool area is mainly tiled with parasols, white plastic sunbeds and a pool bar that has seating placed in the water. Both pools have metal and roman steps for ease of entry.
The tennis court which doubles as a 5-a-side football pitch and children’s playground is at the rear and is over 2 levels which are partly shaded by the mature trees and features new climbing apparatus.
Area Type: Set into the mountainside, 75m back from the main coastal road amongst other similar style properties. Bus stop directly outside for Rhodes Town 5km away or other resorts and the airport. A choice of tavernas and shops are a 5-min walk on the adjacent narrow, shingle beach of Ixia.
