Amathus Elite Suites
What We Love
- An all-suite retreat on the island of Rhodes, with breakfast, dinner and much more Staying in a super-sleek suite with a private pool, a wooden deck and a Jacuzzi
- Skin-specific facials, massages and body polishes at the supersized spa
- The superb al-fresco restaurant that overlooks the dazzling Aegean Sea
What To Know
- There are three outdoor freshwater swimming pools, one of which is on the 11th floor overlooking Ixia Bay
- Book a treatment at the 14,000-square-foot spa
- Some suites have a romantic private pool and garden
Raising the bar for boutique-style beach stays, this five-star charmer on the Aegean-facing Ixia Bay is the all-suite offshoot of the island’s swanky Amathus Beach Hotel. So it’s no surprise that it ticks the boxes for upscale luxury, uninterrupted sea views and glossy aesthetics.
Built in 2010, each of the 37 spacious suites claim wondrously sleek design and decor throughout; think bold pops of colour, wooden and marble flooring, lovely bathrooms with bathrobes, slippers and Bulgari toiletries, and in-room gadgetry galore. Most fabulous, though, are the ones that up the ante with a sizeable wooden sun terrace and private pool with Jacuzzi.
Sunny days can be spent lounging by the outdoor pool, being pampered to perfection at the huge spa, working out at the state-of-the-art gym, and sinking a fair few refreshing cocktails and smoothies at the bar. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the al fresco restaurant overlooking the sea for international cuisine and delicious Greek and Cypriot specialities.
How to Get There
We’ve had a very enjoyable stay for 15 days in this lovely hotel.
The suite with private pool and garden was very spacious. Comfortable beds, excellent shower!
Good size pool with nice size terrace with 2 deckchairs and garden with 2 deckchairs. The garden has sun all day round.
These suites are situated near the main road. It didn’t bother us in the slightest.
Breakfast has some a la cart choices and a extensive buffet.
Lunch and diner is served at the Varkarola restaurant. Food is excellent, extensive wine list.
During our stay there were three theme nights in the restaurant. A barbecue night, a mezze night and a lobster night.
Varkarola bar is a nice way to start your night with some cocktails. Leave it to Giannis to conjure up some lovely concoction!
The staff in this hotel deserves a big compliment! Very friendly and helpful.
When returning to Rhodes, we would definitely consider returning to this hotel.
We booked a suite with a private pool and was very impressed on arrival. The reception team greeted us with a glass of sparkling wine and spent time showing us around the suite and facilities. All the staff have been exceptional and work really hard and always have time for the guests.
We really liked the option of having a continental breakfast in the room by the pool. The breakfast buffet in the restaurant is excellent and has plenty of choice. The pool is fresh water and a lot bigger then we expected. In fact all the facilities and the room was a lot nicer then we expected. Welcome fruit, flowers and wine was a nice touch as well as daily treats. The spa is lovely and not very busy so you can really relax. The tunnel under the road to the beach is fantastic as well. The road is busy but you don’t really notice it. It depends on the wind direction as to how noisy it is. Overall a fantastic hotel, they even made my husband a birthday cake and sang happy birthday to him. I didn’t organise this they just did it. We will be back :) thank you Amathus!
We have just spent a week at the beautiful Amathus Resort. We had a room with a private pool overseeing the beach, with complimentary wine and fresh fruit. There is a great choice of pools, a well-equipped gym and a beautiful, clean, private beach. The personnel is very welcoming and friendly, while being very professional and helpful. Delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner! We enjoyed two themed nights, one with Greek Meze and another with lobster. Top-quality food all around. The goodbye gifts (some Greek delicacies!) were hugely appreciated. We loved every minute of it and hope to go back!
Tip: Do make use of the amazing spa, very relaxing atmosphere and massages, plus full hammam.
Just loved this hotel wonderful staff and food second to none. Lobster evening amazing 5 star cuisine. We booked a room with pool and garden just stunning. Also wonderful taverns with fish dishes and greek cuisine just superb 10 out of 10 We will be back.
We have spent a great week at a marvelous hotel. The concept of a private swimming pool at our splendid room with a magnificent sea view is overwhelming. Friendly and helpfull staff, together with the exquisite restaurant, made it complete.
