Backed by the arid peaks of Tsambika Mountain, Kolymbia has an unexplored, unspoilt atmosphere. Expect a quiet sense of serenity with far-reaching views of peaceful coastline, and you’ll soon dig up the hidden quirks of Kolymbia. This shaded resort is one of the most eye-catching on the island. Kolymbia has another claim to fame in the beauty of its three beaches. The main spot enjoys a wonderful skyline, with the jutting shapes of the mountains in the distance. The sand’s supremely soft too and leads down to loose shingle in the shimmering seafront area itself.
The adults-only Kolymbia Bay Art Hotel is within a stone’s throw of one of Rhodes’ best beaches. And when we say, ‘a stone’s throw’, we mean it’ll take you just a couple of minutes to wander down to Kolymbia beach, which slopes into the glittering waters of the Aegean Sea. If you want to sample the local restaurants, bars and shops, you’re in luck – the tree lined Main Street is within a 10-minute stroll.
Back at the hotel, guests are welcomed with friendliness and Greek hospitality. Think traditional breakfast spreads loaded with fresh cakes, fruit, cold meats and cheeses, and a poolside snack bar which offers drinks and light bites throughout the day. You can also expect a varied buffet at lunch and dinnertime.
The pool area is a great place to chill out during the day – there are loungers and parasols beside the water, which is heated during April, May, and October. For some added relaxation, head to the spa for pampering face and body treatments.
At the end of the day, retreat to your stylish hotel room. Each one is bright and modern, and comes with a private bathroom and a balcony or terrace. Rooms are also kitted out with air conditioning and a tea and coffee making setup.
