My wife and I chose to spend our once in a lifetime honeymoon at the Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel & Spa in sunny Kos, and the experience exceeded all of our expectations from start to finish.
From the moment we arrived we were pampered and treated to lots of small and thoughtful gifts and gestures.In regards of service, this surpasses anything that I have experienced before. Starting with George the manager’s personal introduction to the hotel, and then Iro, Stamatis and Costas with there local insight (and banter) and personal recommendations for places to eat that gave our holiday an authentic Kos feel.
Kos it’s self is so beautiful! So much so that we have booked to go again next year with out Daughter to Aqua Blu’s sister hotel, Palagos, 10mins down the road (Aqua Blu being adults only). The local’s are friendly, the culture and the temperature is exactly as we would have wanted. Also, no issues with immigration incase that was a concern.
We enjoyed traveling up to the ‘old town’ and wandering aroung Kos Town, which was exacty a 7 euro taxi, or 10 minute pleasant bike ride (5 euro a day hire), or 25 minute walk along the seafront. It’s worth travelling deeper into the town as it becomes more authentically Greek off the main tourist strip. Also, the 3 island tour, leaving from Kos harbour is a MUST! around 30 euros a head including lunch, the sights we took in will live long in the memory.
At the hotel, we had the pleasure of a private pool, which I recommend as waking up to the fresh pool everyday was a personal highlight!… The décor is very modern and chic, matching the style of the cocktails and food menu, all of which were delicious including the scrumptious breakfasts we enjoyed each day (the yoghurt!!!!).
A special mention must be made for the Hammam Spa treatment… WOW!!! Truly one of the highlights of the holiday, again the staff went above and beyond to treat us so well and the experience was definitely one to remember!
Overall, I cannot fault a single part of the experience. The Hotel it’s self is outstanding in terms of service and beauty, it wins on every front, the location right on Lambi beach and so close to Kos town give it everything to strike the balance between relaxation and fun. 5 stars aren’t enough!
