This amphitheatrically-designed village of white-washed studios and villas is nestled into the hillside overlooking Ornos Bay and Agios Ioannis Beach. The views are far reaching to the island of Delos; the birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis, and from the other aspect, to glittering Ornos Bay. This means Kalesma benefits from both sunrise and sunset vistas, all in just one exclusive hideaway.
Delightfully intimate, the hotel features just 17 suites and 10 villas, each with its own terrace to soak up the sun, as well as private heated pools. Suites are full of Greek artisan touches with rattan, linen, stone and wood featuring heavily. The outdoor private rain-showers are a great touch. The hotel's thoughtful design means all suites and villas benefit from sea views and, as you would expect of a new resort, many can be interconnected for extended families. The villas are truly wonderful, with eight One-Bedroom villas and two Grand Villas - Apollo sleeping six and the larger Artemis (his sister) sleeping eight, ideal for a larger family gathering. Dining at Pere Ubu is thoroughly Greek with homemade breads and the freshest local fish. If you can tear yourself away from the views and your private pool, then there is a fitness centre, yoga and pilates classes and the main hotel pool with Pere Ubu pool bar.
