The 5-star Avra Collection Astir Odysseus on Kos is a stunning, contemporary hotel offering a blend of luxury facilities with old Greek charm. Situated just 5km from Kos town centre, the hotel manages to be perfectly positioned while being tucked away on the secluded coastline.
Accommodation in the Astir Odysseus is modern and elegant. The hotel was only constructed in 2009 and the rooms reflect this. Doubles are spacious and have balconies, and there are innovative options available, like the pool sharing rooms where you can walk out into a semi-private pool shared by your neighbours. For those wanting a completely private pool, this is possible too – the presidential maisonette is the luxury suite for you! If you can drag yourself away from the room, the hotel offers some fantastic amenities, from climbing walls for the youngsters, to five-a-side football pitches and a full fitness centre for the adults. Those looking to be pampered can enjoy the Aegeo Spa equipped with saunas, indoor pool and a variety of massage treatments including Turkish hammam, as well as beauty and facial treatments to help you relax and unwind.
The hotel is located in the resort town of Tigaki, which is quiet and secluded, but still within reach of various popular destinations. Those looking to get out of the hotel can enjoy day trips to historic Kefalos, or Asclepeion, where re-enactments of Hippocrates' famous Oath are available for groups.
