Thoroughly bohemian in its styling with verdant grounds, OKU is not a party hotel but more a relaxing sanctuary, which brings a refreshing change to the island. 100 rooms and villas are divided between one- and two-storey cubist houses, dotted around the grounds to maintain an intimate feel. They include suites with private pools, Swim Up junior suites and 2-bedroom villas with pools.
The Roof Terrace rooms are a particularly attractive option with their shady wooden pergola and fringed hammock, whilst the Swim Up Junior Suites share a pool between two and have their own terrace complete with hammock. For more privacy, the suites with private pools are for you with their own garden and lounge. The villas at OKU Kos are perfect for small groups, providing a private 2-bedroom sanctuary with a living room, garden and their own swimming pool.
The hotel’s private, white sand beach is adorned with shady cabanas and is cooled by the gentle year-round breezes. Refreshing swims can also be taken at OKU with its crystal-clear outdoor pool, a welcome retreat after a day exploring. The Spa uses organic, locally-sourced ingredients and there are various movement programs from yoga to Pilates on the beach, and the all important indoor pool. You are likely to find yourself unwinding relatively quickly once you arrive at OKU Kos, so - for those who prefer not to venture too far from these tranquil surroundings – the To Kima restaurant and beach club offers an all-day menu of farm-to-table cuisine, including light meals, salads as well as heartier lunches and dinners inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean.
