Five-star hotels in Greece: the home of luxury, serenity and beyond

What even is luxury? Caviar and champagne? A garage full of expensive cars? Golden shoelaces?

For me, luxury is the freedom to travel exactly where I want to go. Checking in to a classy hotel in Greece, looking out at the sea from my private pool while sipping a cocktail… okay, fine, I may not be doing that all the time. Maybe just occasionally. Well, strictly speaking, as an editor, I’m actually just dreaming about it, but the point is: we all should treat ourselves to the luxury of a five-star hotel in Greece every once in a while because they’re simply amazing!

Five-star hotels in Greece – where luxury is a promise!

If the thought of slurping a cocktail in your private pool with sea views has not quite convinced you, then brace yourself, because these Greek luxury hotels are absolutely amazing!

Luxury hotel in Kos with enchanting personal charm

The Greek island of Kos has a little gem in store for you. When staying at the Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel & Spa, you can already look forward to bike tours, hikes or a day at the beach when you wake up in the morning. Located directly on Lambi Beach, this five-star hotel in Greece is only a short trip from the historic alleys, taverns and shops of the city of Kos.

Most of the suites have their own pool (yes, it always comes back to it!) so that you can not only sit together on the balcony in the evening but also make a splash whenever you feel like it. It goes without saying that there is also a spa, where you can let yourself be pampered to your heart’s content.

Five-star hotel in Mykonos that lures you with luxury villas

Before you check in to the five-star Nissaki Boutique Hotel on the island of Mykonos, you’ll need to decide: would you like to stay in one of the comfortable guestrooms, in a luxurious suite or in one of the extravagant villas? I know – the choice isn’t easy.

Because even if you have to spend a little more on the suites and villas, the terrace with sea view, the private jacuzzi and extra features like your own steam bath are definitely worth it. No matter what you decide though, you can always look forward to the delicacies at Phos Restaurant with views of the bay.

Greek five-star hotel that spoils you with skilful spa tricks

Natural stone walls, wind chimes and billowing lengths of fabric around shady terraces with comfortable sofas and, above all, the sound of the nearby Mediterranean Sea.

You think that’s still not enough for you to relax? Then you should definitely book a treatment at the Poseidon Spa. The Orient Ritual with Hamam and aromatic oil massage – or one of the other around 50 treatments on offer – will definitely take your mind off things.

Five-star hotel on the Greek islands with its own organic garden

“Be extravagant, be alive, be yourself,… be Bohème!” This luxury hotel in Mykonos is located in the western part of the island and was built in the style of Cycladic architecture typical of the Greek islands: white walls and stone steps, the historical flair of the island combined with the best possible service and a host of modern amenities.

In the 20 luxury suites, you will find wooden elements such as ceiling beams, tables and shelves that look as though they were made of driftwood, and also modern designer pieces such as metal basket chairs and filigree wicker lamps.  An amazing feature is the wooden shutters, which you open in the morning to look out over the sparkling sea as you look forward to your first coffee of the day… that’s how every day should begin on a holiday!

Luxury hotel on Crete that’ll impress you with an exclusive private beach

Think you know Crete? You simply have not experienced Crete until you’ve sat at the edge of the deep blue infinity pool at the Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa and taken in the mesmerising views over the even bluer Mediterranean. Once you’ve cooled down with a dip into the pool, enjoy your afternoon tea at the Arsenali Lounge Bar while listening to the delightful live piano music. And that’s not all…

Crete’s soul is reflected in the rooms of this luxury hotel because they shine with the typical local design and natural materials of the island. The showpieces are clearly the villas, where guests can splash in their own pool, have their private massage area and enjoy new culinary delicacies prepared personally by the head chef every day.

Luxury hotel in Rhodes with a design that’ll leave you speechless

Rhodes is also an absolute must for lovers of luxury holidays in Greece: The five-star hotel Casa Cook Rhodes is almost too cool to be true and the hipster among the Greek luxury hotels. It offers guestrooms and suites that will knock the socks (or in this case, flip-flops) off even the most discerning fans of contemporary design and trendy styles.

Especially beautiful are the little terraces with wicker chairs, cushions, hammocks and everything else you need for a relaxed day. The bohemian style continues outside the rooms and creates a unique holiday atmosphere. Here, luxury above all means one thing: simplicity and focus on the essential.
