Offering a gateway to Rhodes, Lindos Hotels, the luxury, family-owned hotel group is offering travelers a world of enriching experiences in their brand-new adults-only hotel and two other sister properties, rooted in learning, culture and adventure. From learning to horse ride or how to scuba dive with turtles, to traditional Greek cookery classes or a visit to Butterfly Valley, Lindos Hotels provide the perfect place to learn a new skill and unearth new passions when we can travel safely again.
Set to open this year, Lindos Grand Resort & Spa is a new adults-only paradise nestled within the tranquil cove of Vlycha Bay, Lindos. Famed as a spectacular fishing and diving destination, guests can learn to dive on the southeast coast of Rhodes in private lessons with PADI certified instructors, where the fascinating marine life including octopus, sting rays, sea horses, turtles and even monk seals can be discovered. For those who would rather stay above water, there’s a range of exciting water sports, including windsurfing, kitesurfing, water skiing and even canoeing, before relaxing on Lindos Grand’s own private cove of beach boasting warm, turquoise waters.
Back on land, guests are invited to visit a local vineyard where Lindos Grand can organize private tours for aspiring sommeliers to go wine tasting and learn the unique production methods of local wine making, as Rhodes is the first wine producing region in Greece. For a unique way to discover the wonders of Rhodes, travellers can embark on a Jeep Safari experience from Lindos Grand where they will be taken off-the-beaten-track with stop offs in areas such as the Seven Springs with verdant woodlands and pine-tree shaded walking trails, as well as the village of Foundoukli to visit one of the few remaining chapels on the island from the 15thcentury. After a day of learning and exploration, Lindos Grand invites pure relaxation; rooms are contemporary and sleek in design, with lavish wrap around infinity pools offering undistributed views of the Aegean Sea.
While the recently renovated sister hotel Lindos Village Resort & Spa boasts charming, quaint terraces overlooking the sea with iconic Greek architecture shaded by cypress and lemon trees, promising a truly elegant stay reminiscent of traditional Rhodes. The hotel concierge can arrange for adventure-enthusiasts to discover the island beyond the hotel and learn to horse ride with professional trainers through picturesque clifftop routes or organize guided hiking tours to areas rich in natural beauty, such as Butterfly Valley.
Located nearby, Butterfly Valley is a beautiful 600-acre nature reserve where guests can witness the natural phenomenon of thousands of colorful butterflies congregating among the lush greenery and beautiful waterfalls of the valley. Culture-vultures can also take advantage of historical tours of Lindos Town Acropolis and through the UNESCO recognised medieval town of Rhodes, one of the best preserved in Europe, organised through the concierge at Lindos Village. Guests can admire the gothic architecture of the Magister’s Grand Palace, visit the Archaeological Museum or the Municipal Art Gallery.
Another option for luxury-loving travellers is the eco-friendly, five-star Gennadi Grand Resort, located on the lesser-known corner of Rhodes in Gennadi Bay. Those looking to taste the authentic flavours Greece can learn to cook in an immersive cooking class where local resident chefs can teach the art of recipes such as Dolmades (Mediterranean stuffed vine leaves) and Galaktoboureko – a traditional and tasty Greek custard pie. Activeguests can learn to perfect their serve on the floodlit tennis courts in family-friendly tennis lessons and matches or embark on a sailing and island-hopping trip for swimming and snorkelling in crystal-clear waters, accessible only by boat.
