Imagine yourself lying on a sunbed on your own private terrace, listening to the soothing sound of water trickling through the series of infinity pools that surround you. Everything you could possibly want is within easy reach – a sun soaked terrace with its sweeping view of the nearby coastline where you can take your morning coffee, a fabulous a la carte restaurant, opulent bar for a quiet evening drink and an utterly indulgent health spa.
If you want to lie back and immerse yourself in five star luxury then the Helona Beach Resort is the choice for you. Set on one of the most beautiful beaches on the idyllic Greek island of Kos, this elegant, modern boutique hotel is an oasis of calm.
And if you’d like to take to the water in a sail boat, or enjoy a game of tennis, you’re free to use all the facilities at the Lakitira Beach Resort, just a few minutes’ walk away along a scenic pathway. You can take advantage of the free childcare options too or just chill on the beach with the family and dip in and out of the sparkling blue sea.
Surrounded by 21 infinity pools, the spacious rooms and suites are set amid beautifully landscaped gardens in clusters of soft-domed two storey buildings designed in a classic Mediterranean style. Each room comes with its own balcony or terrace and many have direct access to one of the plunge pools.
Designed in soft Mediterranean colour schemes of terracotta and cream, the rooms have a simple, elegant style with en-suite marble bathrooms and include fridges, flat screen televisions with a movie channel (at extra cost), room service menu, tea & coffe making facilities, hairdryers, safes and toiletries.
Choose from either a spacious double or twin room or a luxurious suite with its own private pool. For the ultimate treat, stay in one of the three entirely independent villas with their breathtaking views over the bay, offering two large bedrooms and a living room, a Jacuzzi and your own private pool.
Relax on the main restaurant’s terrace in the lazy morning sunshine while you sip your freshly squeeze orange juice and decide what you feel like from the breakfast buffet. There’s always a fantastic choice available, from freshly cooked omelettes to French toast and maple syrup or simple Greek yoghurts and mouthwateringly fresh local fruits.
Dining at Helona Hotel is on a half board basis and evening meals are taken in the main restaurant. The hotel’s a la carte restaurant, Thalassa, offers superb dining with a panoramic view of the coastline.
For lazy lunchtime snacks, you can pop down to the beach snack bar for a salad or Panini. As the evening draws out, the Almyra Bar is a perfect location to sit and drink cocktails, or wander along to the Ulysses Lounge Bar and enjoy the live music while you sip your drink.
