Pool & Beach

The magnificent timber deck surrounding the pool is a world unto itself. It’s a vast expanse and, once on it, you feel as if you’ve set out to sea on a tide that ebbs and flows from breakfast terrace to poolside bar and back. (thenines.com) Best of all though are the seamless views out over the Aegean.

There’s nothing more relaxing than a day spent adrift in reverie or reading on our broad daybeds, cared for by our attentive crew bringing fresh towels, irresistible iced smoothies and anything that might catch your fancy from the bar’s menu. You could do nothing at all. Or why not simply watch the shadows of the palms and the parasols lean into the afternoon until, at sunset, stillness descends on the ocean, bringing with it an incomparable sense of tranquillity and wellbeing. Many guests do just that, which is why we simply named it Stay.


The beach below our hotel is as beloved for its fine sand and crystal water, as for its little boutiques and quaint restaurants that line the boardwalk. Watersports organisers on Platis Gialos offer jet-ski rental, instruction in wakeboarding, surfing, skating or waterskiing, tube-sofa and banana-boat rides, canoeing and snorkeling. Glass-bottom boat rides and private yacht charters can be booked to depart from our jetty. Please speak to our guest services for additional information. The beaches of glamorous Psarou, Paranga and Agia Anna are a short stroll away on either side, as is the promontory that ultra-cool Scorpios has colonised.

Fresh beach towels are made available daily through reception.
