The 12 rooms and apartments all have access to the Cycladic stone courtyard, and some include kitchenettes for guests who want to self-cater.

For a luxury retreat within easy access to the town, port, and Stavros and Kionia beaches, couples should head to Infinity View.

All of the sleek rooms offer views of the Aegean Sea and balconies, and some even have a private plunge pool. The shared breakfast area and swimming pool are no less impressive, with pillowy sunbeds and views out across the sand and sea.

The restaurant and other amenities contribute to the hotel's resort vibe.
