“Opulent resort of five hotels in one on a private peninsula. Highly discreet, with striking designs, each hotel different. Plenty of suites and private villas with pools. Seven restaurants. The resort is popular with wealthy Russians and others.”

Hotel Review

This newly-relaunched resort is really five hotels in one (Crystal Energy; Eternal Oasis; Ruby Red Regal; Divine Thalassa; and the OH! All-Suite) set on a private peninsula. Each has a different theme; all are vividly designed. Helpful staff (most of them Russian, as are many of the wealthy clientele) drive you and your luggage from reception to your luxurious room, suite or private villa with pool. A 21st-century cocoon, with post-Soviet oligarch designer chic throughout and Michelin-level Greek food in seven restaurants. If you need a reality check, you can sneak out for a beer and a souvlaki in Agia Pelagia outside the gates.
