“Absolutely Amazing!”

Stayed here for 2 weeks in June for a special occasion. Hotel is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World and is everything we expected it to be. We upgraded to a suite with our own pool and sun loungers which was well worth it. The décor of the hotel is stunning and of contemporary chic style. The Manager and staff were so friendly and just couldn’t do enough for you, the maid came twice a day which we have never had anywhere else before. Breakfast was something else with a wide selection, you must try the yogurt and we had specialist coffee each morning on the patio restaurant. Also dined at Cuvee, which is Michelin standard both in food and service, our Sommelier recommended an excellent local wine for us and the chef came out to meet us as well which was a nice touch. Wouldn’t hesitate to return and be pampered on many more occasions. Thank you to everyone for making our visit so special and memorable, we will be back.

“This is a faultless hotel, best on the island”

If you want to guarantee yourself the perfect holiday, stay here. This is the only hotel on Kos with the ‘small luxury hotel’ rating and they take their 5 star onto another level.

The hotel is set on a peninsula so many of the rooms have a great sea view. The hotel’s decor is trendy but classy, designed very well to allow you to constantly have glimpses of the different areas. The rooms are large, great decor, with massive comfortable beds and all have a large balcony perfect for sun set watching, (some have their own private pool too). Our room had a shower as well as a bath (we’re English, we like that) and comes with a decent hairdryer and constantly replenished high quality toiletries.

The room was cleaned and tidied twice a day with a constant supply of fresh white towels. Beach/pool towels are provided along with a beach bag to put them in. The hotel is 2.5km from Kos town (20 min walk) or €7 cab ride. There are a number of rental places nearby where you can get everything from bicycles to beach buggies and Kos has cycle paths everywhere so it’s ultra safe. It has a stunning pool area with jacuzzi and plenty of decent sun beds including many ‘couple’ ones. The sun sets from here were amazing. Just across the road is your private beach area, (soft white sand here unlike some areas of Kos’s coastline) with beautiful views of the Turkish coast.

The manager at the Aqua Blu is very attentive and hands on and has chosen his staff well. Despite being at the end of the season every single member of the staff seemed to enjoy their role in making your experience the best it could be. Nothing was too much trouble and the reception desk went out of their way on a daily basis to give suggestions, book everything from day trips to Turkey, restaurants, cabs etc and they even seemed to enjoy deciphering my rusty Greek each day.

The breakfast was varied and had something for everyone’s tastes including some à la carte options. There is a really lovely bar area with a full range of quality brands, amazing sea views and excellent chatty bar staff. Their restaurant is called Curvé and is one of the top fine dining restaurants on the island.

If that wasn’t enough they have an award winning spa in the hotel with a heated indoor pool. I had a massage there which was amazing. Staying at the Aqua Blu hotel made our trip to Kos, I’ve stayed at a number of world renowned hotels and this is definitely up there. Best hotel, best staff, best food, best location why go anywhere else…..we’ll definitely be back.

“Exceptionally excellent”

I have been privileged to stay in a reasonable number of top hotels around the world and eaten in some fine restaurants. I have been served by fabulous and charming people with great character and been so delighted but i have never stayed in one hotel that uniquely has it all. Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel,Spa and Restaurant deserves my best review to date for overall excellence in every department.

The Hotel is situated across the road from the beech but make no mistake thats just 50ft not far and has a beautifully kept private lounging area incredibly well supplied with drinks and food.It is walking distance at a slow walk of 40 minutes by foot and 20 minutes by bicycle to the town centre but taxis are prompt and not expensive (5 minutes).

There is an abundance of restaurants and bars but you want that special meal then eat at the Cuvee where the charming and talented head chef creates masterpieces that taste like heaven on a plate. We ate their three times trying different dishes each time all of which were sublime.

The design of the hotel is modern open plan and so alluring making us feel at home and very special. Brought to life with lights and candles and even a cool fire pit it sparkles with both charm and romance, a combination rarely found in a hotel.

Superb Spa treatments and relaxation pool. We had two massages each and loved them. The gym is small and simple but adequate to keep you fit and in shape for the duration of your stay. We were specially allowed in to use it at 7-30am every day when it normally only opens at 10am !!!

With few rooms and a very efficient lift there was never any waiting around and the reception staff were fun fabulously helpful and exceptional.

There is a wide variety of choice of rooms and suites for all requirements and taste. The suite we stayed in was spotless and we loved it with views over the sea and pool. What a great pool, no need to reserve a sun bed their plenty and after the beech we always ended up on a double clam shaped sun bed in the afternoon sun cooling off in the pool or relaxing in the jacuzzi.

Finally and without exception i commend Mr George the manager and every member of staff that work at Aqua Blu for not only their service but their pride and passion in creating this unique experience. Yes it is a service but there is something more here it is the love, pride and pleasure to provide the best to the many guests that visit this hotel. It is second to none. It is kindness, thoughtfulness and yes friendship.

Stay at Aqua Blu where not only will you fall in love with Kos but you will fall in love with Aqua Blu hotel, Spa and restaurant. You will have a great holiday.

Thank you all for a magnificent holiday and fabulous experience.
