A peaceful haven on the island of Rhodes
Found in the ancient town of Lindos, the hotel is just a twenty-minute walk from the centre of the village. Yet it enjoys a dreamy, serene beachside location on Navarone Bay, adjacent to St Paul’s chapel – the hotel faces a dramatic vertical rock, famed as a filming location for the Oscar-winning film Guns of Navarone. As such it’s one of the most picturesque settings on the island (if not the entirety of Greece), flanked by a spectacular landscape that encompasses bonsai, olive trees, Austral grass trees, bright bougainvillaeas, fig-trees, grapevines and more.
Time to unwind in an adult-only environment
Hailed as one of the most romantic hotels in the country, this resort is extremely conducive to couple-time. The adult-only policy ensures a sophisticated and relaxing experience for each and every traveller. By day, relax on a pillared cabana beside the expansive lagoon-style infinity pool, book a spa treatment for two, swim in crystal clear waters of the bay and sip on freshly squeezed organic juices from the Slim Line bar. By night, indulge in a candlelit dinner beneath the stars on the hotel’s private stretch of beach, followed by a nightcap in the Moorish style open-air Zen Bar.
Elegant state of the art accommodation
The hotel has 136 rooms in total; 42 suites facing the beach and 55 suites complete with private plunge pools, as well as a range of double bedrooms, and twins (some with sea views and balconies). Aquagrand’s decor incorporates local stone, wood, copper, pure linen and cotton, ceramics and detailed, handmade rugs. With a colour palette designed to echo those tones found in nature, the hotel has a distinctly calming and soothing vibe. Striking artwork is also found throughout the resort, with a focus on well-known indigenous artists.
Exquisite dining across four gourmet venues
A multi-cultural buffet dinner is served indoors and alfresco at the main Pentapolis restaurant, with live theatre-style cooking stations, a grill, superfoods and a salad bar. Breakfast at Pentapolis takes on an American twist, with local specialties. And for those wishing to host an exclusive party, there’s a VIP dining area for private events.
Alternatively, guests can dine on seafood dishes at the Blue Fin beachfront restaurant, a la carte at the Sensia bar-restaurant (Greek, Asian and Italian dishes), or lighter bites can be ordered from the Olivino Pool Bar. Fresh ingredients from the grounds’ botanical gardens, such as thyme, lavender, rosemary, oregano, spearmint and peppermint, are incorporated into the cooking in all four eateries. Gluten-free vegetarian and vegan diets are ably catered for at the resort.
Taking care of your health and wellness
Get active without having to stray far at Aquagrand – the hotel hosts yoga on the sea deck, has three large outdoor swimming pools and there’s a fully equipped gym. To boost your wellbeing, there’s also the AquaSenses Spa with its sauna, hammam, Vichy shower, hairdresser and seven cabins for a unique range of treatments including balneotherapy, thalassotherapy and chromotherapy.
This paradisical resort has a truly magical feel and a breathtaking outlook that must be experienced in person to be fully appreciated. Honeymooners and couples celebrating a special occasion will especially enjoy the wonderful facilities, aesthetics and ambience at the Aquagrand.
