What To Know
- There's no airport on Patmos; ferries depart regularly from Athens, Rhodes and Kos. One-way journeys take around seven, five and three hours respectively
- Service can be spotty at times — be prepared to check some of your expectations at the door
- Rooms on the ground level around the pool and along the beach can be noisy
- If a view is what you’re after, request a second-floor room for the best vistas of the Aegean
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
Built in the traditional Dodecanese architectural style, Patmos Atkis is made up of a series of low-slung whitewashed cubic buildings. Its clean-lined simplicity caters to those with modernist tastes while still evoking a sense of place. And the theme continues in the hotel’s public spaces and suites, which forgo colorful flourishes in favor of sleek, white styling. In the guestrooms the palette is softened with a taupe or gray bed throw here, a blond wood headboard there. Furnishings are modular in style; the point is not to pull the eye from the gorgeous Aegean and island views.
Bed and Bath
The 56 rooms are all called suites, but entry level Deluxe Doubles are more like standard hotel rooms with a slightly extended seating area. Pool Suites are on the ground floor and hug the pool (in fact, you can pretty much swim up to your private patio) — which means you sacrifice stunning vistas for pool views. On the plus side, if your plan is to spend most of your holiday lounging poolside, this is the place to be (each room comes with a sun lounger and its own patio). If the sea is your passion, then splurge on an Aegean Suite. The spacious accommodations all have drop-dead views of the ocean and a location steps from the sand. Marble bathrooms feature large walk-in showers and stone vanities.
The Aktis’s main calling card is its excellent location, right on Grikos Beach — in fact, the hotel is so close to the surf you can step straight from the lobby onto the sand. The property has a number of (slightly uncomfortable) loungers and beach attendant service on offer for those who want to spend their days on the sand. But there’s still plenty to keep non–beach bunnies happy. A well-equipped gym caters to active types, while those who want to dial things down can enjoy the hammam, the quiet indoor pool, and the several thalassotherapy-inspired treatments at the spa. Begin your days with the delicious breakfast (copious pastries, fresh-squeezed OJ) at the excellent Apocalypsis restaurant. At night, head to the bayfront bar for a glass of Greek wine at sunset, followed by Apocalypsis’s modern take on Greek fare for dinner.
How to Get There
We stayed for a week with our daughter and two grandchildren and we all absolutely loved it!
The private pool as a great hit and the view from our terrace over the bay was brilliant.
The staff were fantastic and happy to entertain all our requests.
It was really safe for our 7 and 9 year old grandchildren to explore the surrounding areas and they enjoyed their time immensely.
The best 5 star hotel by far. From my very first step into it, the service, the staff and its facilities can be stated as "a great and unbelievable surprise". The decoration, the spacious rooms, the pools, the restaurants and all its services were astonishing.
Many thanks to the Manager Mr. Christos and his team for their assistance.
I recommend it unconditionally.
I'm working at the tourist industry, and that is mean that sometimes I am very skeptical from personal experience. First of all I have to mention that general it was my first time not working but doing my vacation on a 5 star hotel. My and my husband we thought why not....just for once, it's low season!Only for two nights just to feel a little bit more special! And we felt special! From the reservation, Dionysia made us felt very comfortable. We checked in early in the morning.The guy at the reception very polity, he ascord us in our room, we had a private swimming pool a very big and clean room and most important for me, the bed!!! Oh my God!So comfortable!The breakfast very reach, with several options!Again what made the difference was the staff. Smiling staff that welcome us and made us feel like home. The morning shift Georgia ,at the reception, also welcome us with the same big smile. Everything was more that I was expected. Thank you for making our small vacations very special.The staff makes the hotel by my opinion a 5 star hotel!
On the beautiful island of Patmos - just 10mln from Port is Grikos Bay - a stunning location for an equally stunning place . Dazzling white rendered buildings - marble - gentle trickling of water - grande reception area - dining - restaurants, world class spa facilities - sheer luxury.
Staff very friendly and helpful - except for a young male at reception who found it so very hard to crack a smile.... or even strike conversation with house guests.
Pool - outside decking - and the immaculate raked clean sandy beach with sun beds, umbrellas and staff that provided towels and iced bucket with fresh water and of course food and drink requirements.
Very special place - not cheap but worth treating oneself even for a couple of nights..,,
Beautiful hotel very near to Skala town, in Grikos.
Talk of luxury, as you enter the reception on either side of you there are two water fountains in pure, clean aquamarine water
Reception is spacious, lovely white furniture to sit and relax.
We have been coming here since 2014. Very convenient if you arrive on a 3 pm catamaran and still want a sun tan.
For a non resident, Its €10 Euros per towel and chair per person plus umbrella included and all the ice cold bottle little waters you can drink, complimentary small cocktails ice tea and fruit, and a nice outdoor shower to wash.
There's s sweet little Taverna belonging to the hotel outside , a bar to order snacks, however for dinner I would recommend you eat out in a place such as Benetos. Very good and highly recommended restaurant.
The hotel offers three private swimming pools at the back, only for residents.
And when I said this is an ultra modern hotel, it was no joke.
Push a button and you can close and open curtains, windows wardrobes lights.
We had a deluxe room and the bed was massive .
Beautiful bath and the latest in weighing scales to check how much damage you did to your figure the night before.
One thing you must not miss out here is the breakfast. Yes, it is a hot and cold buffet but my God it's amazing. Don't miss out on this one. They cook anything you could possibly want or think of. But there is more variety then I've seeing anywhere else.
It's €15 Euros if you are a non resident.
Also there is a beauty spa downstairs from reception. A small pool and a very nice boutique.
One word about the beach ; there is a lot of seaweed but they have cleaned up quite a bit of it and now you can see fish, your toes and very clean water.
Enjoy your stay
