Adults only hotels in Greece: Treat yourself to the luxury and peace of a hand-picked adults only hotel
Santorini: Unparalleled romance
With its iconic Cycladic architecture, luxury adults’ only hotels on the gorgeous Greek island of Santorini make for one of the most romantic escapes in the Mediterranean. From strolling down the steep, sun-soaked alleyways of Fira to an exploration of Therasia, you won’t be at a loss for things to do in Santorini. Adults’ only hotels in Fira are the perfect base for a honeymoon. Not only do hotels come with infinity pools and luxury facilities, but Fira is a charming town packed with tavernas, stores and glorious architecture. Clinging to the cliffs and overlooking the deep blue of the caldera crater, Fira charms with exceptional views and Cycladic charm. The Three Bells of Fira is one of the best examples of the island’s recognizable architecture. With its whitewashed walls and ocean blue dome, this church is famed for its gorgeous vistas and three bells from which it is named. To learn more about the history of the island, the Museum of Prehistoric History showcases artifacts that have been discovered all over the island. A hotspot for romance, Oia to the north is smaller than Fira, making it an even more idyllic location for an adults only hotel in Greece. Home to the Naval Maritime Museum and Oia Castle, the town is famous for its glorious sunsets and access to Therasia – a smaller island opposite Santorini providing a taste of authentic Greece.
Mykonos: More than just a party destination
The island of Mykonos is famous for its nightlife. Cool bars, trendy hangouts and ocean front restaurants dominate this gorgeous island, and adults only hotels are the perfect way to spend your time here. Arrive by boat via Hora (also known as Mykonos town), the largest town on the island. In the shoulder seasons, this hub of the Cycladic islands is a little more subdued. Its beaches and bars are less packed than during the summer months, but no less attractive if you want to spend some time enjoying the nightlife here. The nightclubs on Paradise beach are the island’s most famous. Having said this, Mykonos is more than just a party island. The quiet coves and laid-back locations can be found by driving the coast. Spots like Elia and Ornos provide a charming atmosphere away from the superclubs. Boutique and adults only hotels in Greece provide you with your perfect Mykonos escape, with access to picture-postcard Hora center with its warren of streets and boutique stores. Take a stroll to Little Venice to pick up a souvenir, or catch the sun set behind the beautiful Mykonos windmills.
Crete: Historic wonder on Greece’s largest island
Adults only hotels in Greece are the perfect retreat in the most idyllic surroundings, and a vacation to Greece’s largest island – Crete – is no exception. The capital Heraklion can be a little hectic, but is well worth a visit for the ancient ruins of Knossos. Per ancient mythology, this is the site of the famous Theseus and the Minotaur story, but today the remains of Europe’s oldest city stand out as one of best preserved examples of the ancient world. If you’re seeking a relaxing beach destination on the island then look no further than Rethymno. This stylish town is a delightful combination of historic charm and chilled out Greek coast. Relax by the shore or stroll along the Venetian harbor, admiring the fortress which dominates the area. Further west is Chania, another destination ideal for an adults only hotel in Greece. Chania is a simply stunning. Base yourself here to enjoy a cool modern resort town side-by-side the labyrinth of alleyways and listed buildings dating from various periods of the town’s history. At the heart of the city center is the Public Garden of Chania, a dreamy oasis to spend a morning, while the harbor comes alive with alfresco dining in the evening. Head to Falassarna beach for translucent water and stunning sunsets, or check out the unique pink sands of Elafonisi. Adults only hotels in Greece are the perfect solution for a peaceful and tranquil vacation.
