Best Luxury Hotels In Paros

A top place to party (particularly the Naoussa village area), Paros is an idyllic Greek island in the Aegean Sea. It’s packed with local charm too – fishing harbours, whitewashed houses, quaint villages and authentic tavernas can all be found here, along with lively nightspots and golden beaches. There are many hiking trails and a range of watersports, and as there’s an excellent bus service, you can really roam without the hassle of renting a car. But if you choose to stay in one of these superb resorts, you may find you’re reluctant to stray far from your luxe base.

Parīlio, a Member of Design Hotels

Another of Konstantinidou and Eliopoulos’ hotels, Parīlio’s style takes its cue from traditional Cycladic architecture. However, an international array of design pieces have been included in the interiors, with Italian lighting, Danish furniture and North African motifs. A cool simplicity comes from materials such as coloured concrete, terracotta floors and local marble. Found on the unspoilt northeastern coast, it has 33 suites, a cross-shaped swimming pool with a bar, a spa using organic products and a taverna-style restaurant. Although it’s incredibly sophisticated and calming, Parīlio is also very family-friendly with space to play and a babysitting service.
