Mitsis Alila Resort & Spa
Say hello to one of the most outstanding hotels on the east coast of Rhodes. By outstanding we mean, lavish art adorned walls, swim-up suites, a swanky champagne bar and gourmet eateries – the Mitsis Alila Resort & Spa provides endless luxury. The 300 days of Greek sunshine makes this beachfront hotel perfect for working on your tan and its Faliraki location provides history enthusiasts with endless old-world relics.
Offering a one-of-a-kind 5 star service, this premium establishment is nothing short of impressive. The Mitsis collection is famed for their first-class facilities alongside ultra-modern interiors, and it seems no expense was spared on this beauty.
Mountain views and hot tub suites
Each of the 314 guest rooms enjoy a contemporary vibe with fresh white walls, marble floors and plush furnishings – it’s like they’ve stepped off the pages of an interior design magazine. Solo travellers will be in their element with dedicated single suites and families can revel in 40m2 of space. Take your pick from mountain or sea views, and for additional opulence book a room with a swim-up pool and hot tub.
You’ll be welcomed by a complimentary bottle of wine from the mini bar as well as a fancy Nespresso coffee machine. Then, head to the wardrobe where super soft bathrobes and slippers are waiting to provide ultimate comfort. Nibble on free nuts and dry fruits while flicking through the music channel from your satellite TV.
