Expert Review

Myth meets modern day at this village-style haven. The mansion cum-hotel features 12 suites, each with a private terrace, that meet in a common area in 17th-century architectural style.  From the hotel you can see the clifftop temple to Athena, enclosed in a fortress, built by the Dorians more than 3,000 years ago. The scent of lavender and jasmine waft from the several gardens surrounding the hotel, and we love the charming old-world details like  raised hand-carved cedar sleeping platforms in each of its suites,  pebble mosaics, Lindian pointed arches, large marble hamam-style basins for exotic alternative bathing, as well  as modern conveniences like independently controlled air-conditioning. Lindos will help you set up transportation from the airport as well.

“Always, always travel with ear plugs. They make chatty plane neighbors, loud street traffic, and rowdy hotel guests much more bearable.”
