Hotel Aegean Suites details
A boutique bolthole just footsteps from the beach, the Aegean Suites Hotel was made for chilling out.
Walking into this place is like stepping into the pages of an interiors magazine. All creamy walls, elegant drapery and white-painted furniture, it’s got a really calm, contemporary vibe. Step outside, meanwhile, and things are just as good-looking. Whitewashed walls are linked by curvy arches, and exposed-stone steps lead off in every direction.
On the subject of which, the hotel is set on a hillside – so steps are a major feature. Rest assured, though - the sea views make it well worth the extra legwork. You can see all the way to some of Skiathos’ neighbouring islands from the pool, for example. Talking of the pool, it’s a classic rectangular number surrounded by wicker furniture and comfy loungers. Plus, there’s a pool bar and a restaurant serving up light bites and lunches, too.
Elsewhere on the food front, breakfast is served on the Pavillon terrace. Expect à la carte service, freshly-squeezed juices and eggs any way you want them. In the evenings, meanwhile, dining moves to the Pegalos restaurant. There’s just a handful of candlelit tables that spill out onto a terrace, so it has a really intimate feel. Factor in those all-important sea views and you’ve got a really romantic setting.
Just across the road from the hotel, meanwhile, you’ve got Megali Ammos beach. It’s a sand-and-shingle number lined with little bars and tavernas. For more in the way of things to do, just follow the coastline into Skiathos Town – the walk takes about 15 minutes.
