PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

The design at Parīlio Hotel Paros may be streamlined and meticulously thought-out, but your days here should be exactly the opposite. Because meandering in a timeless haze of sun, sea and swim is exactly what the Athens-based design team had in mind when they conceived this Parian paragon – relaxation par excellence. To help you further adjust to the island’s slow-as-molasses metronome, there’s the soul-soothing Asian spa, a light-filled restaurant called Mr E (get it?) and that enormous cross-shaped swimming pool, perfect for worshipping Helios, the Greek god of sunshine.

At the Hotel

Rates include the healthy and home-made daily breakfast spread in Mr E restaurant.

FACILITIES

Free on-site parking, free WiFi. In rooms: free bottled water, tea and coffee.

PACKING TIPS

Tote Teva sandals for clambering over the rocks at Kolymbithres and a Polaroid camera for printing those instantly nostalgic, sepia-toned snaps.

SPA

The boutique Asian spa has two treatment rooms and one cabin for beautifying: manicures, pedicures and waxing. Choose from tension-banishing massages, body scrubs or facials – all the treatments use potions by all-natural and organic brand Ila. Don’t fear, honeymooners: every treatment is offered à deux, so you needn’t spend even an hour apart.

POOL

The hotel’s name is a hybrid between ‘Paros’ and ‘Helios’, the Greek sun god – so we think it’s only proper to pay your respects to the deity by lying supplicant in a sleek sunlounger beside the enormous, cross-shaped swimming pool. The turquoise temptation is enhanced by the two rock formations built into the sides – throw yourself across them to pretend you’re a ship-wrecked Odysseus at sea (if the ‘sea’ had nary a wave and someone occasionally offering to refresh your cocktail).

ALSO

The hotel's significant number of steps means it's not ideal for anyone with restricted mobility.
The gym is equipped with elliptical machines, stationary bikes, treadmills and rowing machines. You can book pilates, yoga and other group fitness classes at the front desk.

Rooms 

All suites are spacious, light-filled and supremely soothing (thanks to outdoor living areas and enormous beds), but if pressed, we’d hop to a Halo Suite: each has an outdoor dining area and two white sunloungers overlooking the gorgeous native gardens.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

At Mr E, chef Alexandros Tsiotinis serves seasonal Greek and Mediterranean fare in a light-filled space with huge arched windows, chic greenery and an outdoor terrace. Start with the goats cheese and grilled peach salad, then the lamb ragu orzo and finish with the local honey ice cream – you’ll still be buzzing about it come home time.

Liquid Bliss 

Running alongside the pool, this sleek spot, with a Café del Mar soundtrack to match, is perfect for seeking shade from the midday sun or a post-dinner digestif. Try not to make suggestive eye contact when you order the Kiss Me cocktail, made with Mastiha liqueur, vodka, fresh strawberry puree, basil leaves and lime juice. Or, ask the sommelier for recommendations about the lesser known Greek vintages on the wine list. The bar also serves snacks to your sunlounger – choose from superfood or kale

Experience the Extraordinary 

Start with what’s here: breeze through the bountiful breakfast spread, banish any remaining tension at the Asian spa before dropping into a sunlounger to while away the afternoon with a good book, aided by a refreshing cocktail or two from the poolside bar. When you’re ready to head out, Parikia is Paros’ largest town and where you’ll find the awe-inspiring (and admittedly hard to pronounce) Panagia Ekatondapyliani, a Byzantine monastery complex that dates from AD 326. Did you know that the Venus de Milo and Napoleon's tomb were both made from Parian marble? Unfortunately the artefacts at the tiny Archeological Museum (also in Parikia) are rather less racy, but the museum is a fascinating walk through the island’s ancient history nonetheless. Next, get lost wandering the labyrinthine lanes of jewel town Naoussa – you’ll be rewarded with fashion boutiques, artisanal shops and trad tavernas on the waterfront. Adrenaline seekers should gallop to Golden Beach, famous for windsurfing (every August they hold the windsurfing world cup at this very spot). For more secretive swimming, visit Laggeri Beach near Naoussa but leave little Smiths at home for this outing – some of your fellow sunbathers will be au naturel, if you catch our drift. If nudey beaches are not your bag, take the seven-minute water ferry to Antiparos (they run regularly from Parikia) to visit the awe-inspiring Cave of Antiparos – take sturdy shoes for the steps, all 411 of them.

Transportation 

Parīlio is perched on the northeastern coast of Paros in the central Cyclades, just a 20-minute walk from the island’s most popular beach, Kolympithres, and a 10-minute drive from the twinkling town of Naoussa.

Planes 

You’ll need to connect in Athens before flying on to Paros airport. The hotel is a 30-minute drive away airport is the closest and the hotel can organise transfers for €60 each way.

Automobiles 

Don’t expect lots of car-hire options at the lilliputian airport on Paros. You’re better off without wheels, anyway – parking is scant in mid-summer and the fines are steep if you’re not where you're meant to be. If you’re intent on revving an engine, rent a moped instead – you can find reputable outfits on the waterfront in Parikia.

Other 

If you’re island hopping, you can reach Paros by ferry, too – it takes about an hour from Mykonos and just under four from Athens.
