Grecotel LUXME Kos Imperial 

Timeless Greek retreat

This elegant beachfront resort close to Kos Town has adult-only spaces for couples and a wealth of family-friendly facilities

Taking its cues from the timeless simplicity of Greek village architecture, Grecotel LUXME Kos Imperial provides a stylish setting for carefree holidays. Its low-rise, terracotta-tiled buildings are scattered around 25 acres of mature gardens laced with lagoons, waterways and waterfalls, with a pebble beach beyond. There’s a dizzying choice of subtly nautical accommodation – think blue, sand and white decor – from penthouse suites with panoramic views to two-bedroomed seaside bungalows with private pools. The dining scene is almost as varied, so you can try local home-style cooking, stylish Asian dishes or a wood-fired pizza as the mood takes you. If you’re not the type to laze by the (fabulous) pools, you could scoot across the water on a windsurfer, pedal along quiet country cycle paths or head into Kos Town to wander its stone-paved lanes or take an island-hopping boat trip from the harbour.

Why we love Grecotel LUXME Kos Imperial

  • It’s on a tucked-away leafy 25-acre estate by a squeaky-clean beach, but the sights of historic Kos Town are just an easy bus ride away

  • If you can tear yourself away from the six swimming pools, there are masses of activities such as tennis, yoga and various watersports

  • There are adult-only places such as the spa, rooftop restaurant and part of the beach, and pools, clubs and mini buffets just for children

  • Thanks to the design, it feels more like a stylish village than a resort, and the warm service only adds to the home-from-home appeal
