Patmos Aktis Suites & Spa on Patmos island is the personification of a miracle. An old, abandoned and ruined “Xenia” built in the 1960’s made into a five-star hotel in absolute harmony with its natural environment.
WHERE “PATMOS AKTIS SUITES & SPA” IS LOCATED
On one of the most beautiful Patmos’ beaches in the idyllic seascape of Grikos’ bay, just 4,5km away from Skala, “Patmos Aktis” is located. From the large porch, where the breakfast is served, you can gaze at the sailing boats and other vessels moored in the small sheltered creek.
The simple and luminous spaces free from anything dispensable compose the image of today’s“Patmos Aktis”. The hotel is built in respect to the surroundings and is very friendly to people with disabilities. Special ramps indoors and outdoors make the access possible and easy.
THE ROOMS IN “PATMOS AKTIS SUITES & SPA”
Our room was a real surprise. It was large and bright. Through the large veranda, you could get to the pool. Panagiotis loved the pool and he never missed the chance to go for a plunge. For those who wanted to swim there were flip flops in the wardrobe.
And when we returned from our daily wanderings, late at noon, my son prepared an espresso for me and one for him. We had our coffees enjoying the air condition’s coolness and having the curtains of the big French door drawn.
The bathroom was huge and had special handles for people with disabilities. Also, the place was equipped with all necessary care products. And of course, there was free Wi-Fi everywhere.
“PATMOS AKTIS SUITES & SPA” RESTAURANTS
Just at the seafront and on the sand are lined up the wooden tables of “Plefsis”. They are covered with plaid tablecloths. Around them, there are tins with basils and geraniums. The scenery reminds us the summers of our childhood. It’s the “Patmos Aktis” traditional Greek tavern which serves its snacks right in front of the sea.
Inside the hotel and on its large veranda operates the restaurant “Apocalypses”. Breakfast is also served there.
We enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace of “Patmos Aktis”. There, right next to the calm sea where the first light of the day reflected in thousands shades of blue, the landscape turned into magical.
The hotel’s personnel that were so kind and ready to anticipate our desires were on foot early on. The huge variety of the dishes made our choices difficult.
GYM & SPA
In the cool basement of “Patmos Aktis” is gathered everything a woman loves and needs. Boutiques, gym, Turkish bath, massage room and an indoor swimming pool for endless moments of relaxation.
Of course “Patmos Aktis” is the ideal place for marriages, baptisms and business conferences.
