In 2014, Greece proudly marched away from the Blue Flag beach awards with 395 perfect beach locations to its name. A good proportion of the very best sun-kissed sand havens can be found on the gorgeous island of Rhodes. In the southeastern village of Lardos, home to one such award-winning beach, and near whitewashed Lindos, Lindian Village is an elegant escape that’s positively overflowing with five-star attributes and impeccable service.
Set within sixty acres of landscaped grounds, this tranquil, TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning hideaway feels every bit the traditional Rhodes retreat. It comes complete with cobbled alleyways, a central square and beautiful bougainvillea. There’s also a private beach, plus an indoor gym, freshwater swimming pools and a divine spa. And don’t forget the five sublime restaurants, plus the pool bar and evening lounge bar, waiting to indulge your senses.
The stylish rooms are spacious and adopt a fresh and natural palette that incorporates crisp whites and soothing greens. Each comes complete with a balcony, affording views over the bougainvillea-filled gardens. The luxe details extend to fluffy bathrobes, slippers, beach towels and organic
Five cosmopolitan restaurants (four a la carte and one buffet restaurant) serving an array of international cuisine, like Thai, Mediterranean, seafood and traditional Greek delights are dotted around Lindian Village. Al-fresco café and bars whip up cappuccinos or cocktails to suit you, and you can also learn how to make that perfect Greek salad with cooking lessons from the executive chef.
The lavish spa is a blissfully calm environment to slink into after a luxurious day on the beach. Four treatment rooms are on hand with themed menus such as the ‘Namaste menu’ with Asian based treatments and the ‘Persephone menu’ which uses ancient Greek remedies. Treatments cater for skin corrective facials, pampering body treatments and massages – which you can also take outside at an outdoor pavilion for priceless sea views. There’s an indoor swimming pool with hydro-jet massage, Turkish baths, sauna and a Jacuzzi featuring Oriental water treatments.
Lindian Village is ideally located on a kilometre of private beachfront in one of the most stunning and picturesque parts of Rhodes Island. The hotel offers an extensive list of premium activities and excursions, including wine tasting on the beach, sailing lessons and open-air Greek movie nights.A short drive away you’ll find the sublime whitewashed town of Lindos, with its renowned acropolis and sandy beaches. Romantic Rhodes Town holds a UNESCO World Heritage Site Old Town, a dazzling harbor, medieval ramparts and plenty of shops and restaurants a 40-minute drive north from Lindian Village.
How to Get There
We’re a young (ish!) family, 2 daughters aged 9 & 5 and although a hotel which is suitable for kids is important to us, we’re also incredibly selfish (!!) so a hotel which caters brilliantly for fussy adults is also high on our agenda. Lindian Village got the balance perfectly. They made a real fuss of our kids, the kids club is great and Sabina’s Watersports Club has fun for all ages, My 9 year wakeboarded for the first time! Note; The pin drop on Google Earth is misleading, this resort is right on the beach.
Get an upgrade to a room with a pool, you’ll never regret it and then you also get access to the very secret world of VIP breakfast! It’s fantastic and away from the buffet crowd. You also get to meet and be looked after by the fantastic Anastasia, she is a gift to Lindian Village and should be on the management team.
Go Half Board Plus, it works out financially and you get to eat in all the restaurants.
If you do end up dining regularly in the main restaurant you get looked after the character that is Vaggelis. What a smoothie! Always smiling.
The poolside bar team are also fantastic, much love to them all.
And then there’s Katerina, she’s the guest relationship manager and really couldn’t do enough for us. We’ll never forget her and we’re already rebooking with her for next summer.
Finally the GM, Roustas. He steers the ship beautifully, is present all the time, and is clearly very popular with all the staff.
I talk so fondly of all the staff because they really do make this place. It’s a beautiful, well kept and seriously deserving 5 Star Spa hotel but the staff are what take it the the next level. We’ve been very lucky to stay in some of the worlds best hotels and cannot wait to return to this one.
Much love, Sam, Kathryn, Evie & Nancy
We are a family of four that spent a week Lindian Village (Sep 2018). It was just what we needed: relaxed beyond belief, lovely pool and excellent service. Beach has little stones that can get hot! However what a spot to laze away with service right up to the water's edge. Aris Dimitris the pool guard is a swimming coach and absolutely wonderful with children, he kept our son in the water and off his iPad for hours on end. What a blessing for all!
We visited in late October with our teenage son. It was an offer with Fleetway travel and we had a Bohemian suite with private pool.
The check-in at reception was very efficient and you are taken to your suite on golf buggies and at the same time we were given a tour of the complex/facilities.
We were very happy with our suite- it was spacious and recently refurbished. The main bedroom and bacthroom were particularly nice.
The courtyard with private pool was a good size and private. It was furnished with several comfy seats,loungers, and a daybed.
The breakfast buffet was fantastic and plentiful. The evening meal , as mentioned in other reviews, is now a la carte. The food was good and we did enjoy it but as we had a fussy teen with us a buffet would have been easier.
We hired a car for several days and it is very easy to explore the island. We had a day in Rhodes town and also visited nearby Lindos and Pefkos where there were a multitude of fantastic greek traditional restaurants etc.
The Lindian Village is a lovely hotel and the staff could not be more helpful.
Travelled in October for one week half board. Bohemian pool suite, offer with Fleetway.
Hotel is located one hour's drive from the airport. Quite remote if not driving. A small minimarket just outside the hotel, selling milk, biscuits, chocolate, beer, water etc. Don't expect to buy spirits, way overpriced.
Check in quick. Lemonade and home made turkish delight brought out. Buggies used to ferry between reception and the rooms. Resort is well laid out, less than 10 mins from reception to the beach.
Our pool suite was fantastic. Clean, obviously recently refurbed, bathroom great, small issues with door fixings and curtains too small and not hung well. Little things that make it not really 5 star. Outside pool area good. Ants were everywhere , even on our outdoor sunbed, I discovered that spraying the area with my Jungle Fever mossie spray sorted that out. We paid for pool heating (30 euros a day) and well worth it. Not heated massively but took the edge off the coldness and made swimming a pleasure.
We needed to use our Do Not Disturb all the time when in the suite to avoid multiple staff coming in throughout the day. This meant that we had the suite cleaned in the morning when we had breakfast but often missed the tea and coffee being replenished because it is a different person doing it. We used the Nespresso machine but there were only two x two different pods. We brought tea and coffee, bought milk and used the machine to heat the water as there is no kettle. You aren't allowed to use the mini fridge for personal items but there is a large wine cooler at 5 degrees so excellent for beer and milk.
Breakfast was excellent in the buffet, lots of cheese and meal choices (large german contingent in the hotel so definitely catered for continental style) but also an eggs station where fried eggs, omelettes and pancakes can be ordered. Cava and a juicing station also. If in a suite you can choose the pool restaurant which has a small but good choice of breakfast but waiter service. If it rains it is closed along with the buffet outside area making the dining room fuller. Tea, coffee and orange juice included.
No lunch provided in the room rate but a pool bar serving pizza and sandwiches. Pizza averages at 11 euros.
Evening meal in the buffet restaurant is waiter served 5 courses. Dont expect what is on the menu being served. Many salads were changed, ingredients missing. The presentation is aimed at haute cuisine but the food was often strange combinations of flavours and ingredients that were not to our taste. We refused to pay extra for the three 'speaciality' restaurants, one of which was greek so hence in one week I only had one greek meal in the main restaurant. The food was not great, but we never went hungry and the desserts were the best part.
Drinks are expensive. 5 euros for a 330ml bottle beer, 10,50 euros for a G & T. We stuck to a bottle of mineral water (3 euros) with dinner and bought beer from the mini market. There was a 500ml draught beer for 5 euros but this ran out before the end of the week.
We didn't stay to watch the entertainment but it sounded ok. On every evening 9.15 to 10.30pm but outside and we didn't fancy being mossie bitten.
Staff were efficient and some exceptionally friendly especially in the main restaurant. Managers were visible throughout the resort and very welcoming. Plenty of sunbeds round the pool but no parasols so if you didn't get one of the beds it would be too hot to sunbathe. Double Beds on the beach also taken quickly but plenty of normal sunbeds.
Overall a lovely resort, food in the evening could be better, should have much more greek traditional food available at NO extra cost in Greece. Would not return due to remote location but we enjoyed our stay.
We stayed in October with our 7 year old son. We were in a family room (I suspect one of the older rooms) with balcony area. Room was very nice. Not amazing but perfectly acceptable. Nice touch was nespresso machines and a bottle of water every day.
The hotel grounds are lovely. You feel like you are away from the crowds and the bright lights of another hotel around the bay, which thankfully you cannot see from the Lindian Village. The beach is right there and the pool area is excellent for children and adults alike.
We had B&B and didn’t eat dinner in the hotel so cannot comment on that side of things. There are lots of lovely restaurants close by if you have a hire car. The breakfast was great and the lunches in the Pebble restaurant at the pool area also very good.
The staff are all amazing. Very friendly and helpful.
There is a tennis court which you can book for an hour. The racquets are very basic so take your own if you are a serious player.
