Action-packed holidays are all well and good, but there comes a time when nothing sounds better than a few days of pure relaxation. Kick back, recharge your batteries and float away on a sea of blue at the Michelangelo Resort & Spa. Rising above the beach of Agios Fokas, this ultra-modern, five-star getaway is an idyllic spot to explore the beautiful island of Kos – or to simply take it all in from the comfort of a daybed by the pool.
The resort’s beachfront location, panoramic terraces, vast infinity pool and top-class spa facilities combine to make a true slice of heaven – and earned this luxe spot a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. You’ll be able to spend your mornings playing tennis, before recovering with a sea-view massage. Nearby Kos town is also well worth exploring – just make sure you’re back in time to watch the sunset from the infinity-pool bar.
If you haven’t napped enough on the sun loungers, the resort’s rooms maintain the sleek sophistication seen throughout the hotel. Comfort Sea View rooms, measuring in at 270 square feet, feature soothing colors and furnished balconies. Upgrade to a Premium Sea Front View room for a front-facing balcony, making those gorgeous views even more instagram-worthy.
The resort’s elegant restaurant boasts gourmet cuisine and panoramic views of the azure waters. For breakfast, choose from a varied buffet stuffed with everything from fresh fruit salad to pancakes and waffles. For dinner, enjoy Greek, Mediterranean and international dishes paired with an impressive list of local wines and spirits.The hotel’s pièce de résistance is the pool bar; situated in the center of the resort’s 480-ft.-long infinity pool, the bar is the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon cocktail while taking in the spectacular sea views.
This luxe spa really takes tranquility to the next level, with Turkish baths, a steam room, a sauna and treatment rooms offering everything from signature services, such as thalassotherapy, to conventional facials. We recommend having your travel-weary limbs soothed while looking out over the endless expanse of sea on the outdoor massage pavilion.
The Michelangelo Resort & Spa rises above the shingle beach of Agios Fokas and has its own private area of the beach. The boutique shops, restaurants and nightlife of bustling Kos town, port and marina are just five miles away. Other attractions nearby include the well-known Therma hot springs and the coast of Turkey.
How to Get There
The views and the infinity pool were the things that attracted me to this hotel from the website. When we arrived they did not let us down at all. Totally beautiful - pool and view - but also lots of other nice things about our stay. The hotel was very nice (not really 5 star, but a good 4 star.) Room was a good size and nicely decorated. Bathroom was good, but the shower could have been a better design. Mix of very nice towels and others that had seen better days. We booked a Premium Room and it had a fabulous view of everything - pools, bars, sea, island - all from a lovely balcony. The staff were very friendly and nice. The Breakfast Buffet was very good - lots of fresh fruit, freshly made smoothies, crepes and omelettes. An excellent selection of cold/salads, breads, cooked foods and baked goods. Fresh orange juice as well as many other juices. The wait staff were friendly and attentive with coffee and tea. We ate outside every morning - they actually need more tables with shade as it was too hot to sit in the sun and we were there in mid-May. I imagine it would be too hot the rest of the summer to comfortably enjoy your meal outside. The hotel is built on many levels on the side of a hill. This is not the place for someone who is not good on stairs, You must walk outside to most room, the pools, one of the restaurants and the beach. This was not a problem for us, it may be for others. The beach is a stoney beach, so you’ll need waterproof shoes to enjoy it. There was a beach bar there for a nice drink. The loungers at the pool and the beach were free, plentiful and very good quality. We liked the touch of the wait staff bringing around a tray of watermelon late morning as we were lounging by the beautiful pools. They were very attentive and the people on fully inclusive seemed very happy with the service they received. The entire resort was very well kept and maintained. The flowers and plantings are colourful and pretty. We didn’t use the spa, but it looked nice and the staff were nice when we had a shower on the evening we were leaving after a day at the pool. The location of the resort is not great as it’s a 20 minute bus ride from Kos town with nothing nearby to stroll around or explore. We took the local bus into Kos a couple times and liked it very much. We rented a car for 4 days and explored the island each evening. Definitely a good thing to do. We went to the Therma pool a couple miles past the resort for a unique experience each day we had the car. You can drive right to the end of the road to the sea (we hiked it the first time, but that was too hot!) It was just great to experience the HOT water in the Therma pool. We went at 7:30 a couple of mornings and had it to ourselves. It was a lot busier the afternoon we first went. All in all, this is a lovely resort with an amazing pool and great views.
The hotel staff welcome you like you’re friends and they are so attentive. The food is incredible with a wide variety of choice in the buffet and the restaurant food is of a very high standard. All of the bars are well stocked, but you should try the beach bar particularly at the end of the day, to just chill under the trees and enjoy a cocktail.
The rooms on the front have the most wonderful views overlooking the beautifully kept infinity pool and a backdrop of Turkey.
I would definitely recommend a massage during your stay. All the girls are good but Kostas gives the most relaxing massage you can ever imagine. The pedicures are very thorough and the nail polish stays in tack and doesn’t fade.
Although we really do not mind the steps as we think of it as exercise so that we can eat a little more, it may be something to consider if you struggle with steep slopes, for no other reason than it may feel like a negative for you.
we had a very nice stay there. the room was very nice with good view but were some bugs in there. in general the housekeeping was super. we loved the infinity pool and the cocktaiks of Vasilis. we will visit this resort again.
We had such a good time there! No need to mention about each restaurant or bar as everywhere was very good. Most nice most of all was the main bar of the hotel as we had nice cocktails with beautiful decoration. One negative was that they did not have enough ice for us when we asked for. We will return to this hotel soon!
We liked this hotel because has a very nice location with nice view. The room was spacious and had very nice view. Everything was nice in this hotel. We enjoyed a lot there. We only had problem when asking for buckets of ice. We will visit this hotel again.
