Hotel Synopsis

Featuring 50 Spacious Hill-Side & Cave Suites, with private gardens and impressive infinity pools, KOIA introduces a true luxury idea, that combines pure independence with high-end service, as well as the option for its guests to fully customize their holiday experience. From specially designed Junior Suites to Small Luxury Independent Homes, the KOIA accommodation choices provide all the space a traveler needs, in combination with upgraded in-room services — like the Eco-friendly housekeeping, the special In-Room Menu, and a series of in-room entertainment choices either through the Tablet Concierge or the special TV & Sound Systems.


Having the local gastronomy of Kos and Greece as well as the Hippocratic Plants, as the basis for the Resort’s Gastronomy, all the hotel menus have a special experience to offer and a distinct story to narrate.“Thyme”, the resort’s semi-buffet, semi “à la carte” Restaurant that features an on-site botanical garden, becomes the best place for a Local Breakfast Experience, while the “Infinity” Pool Bar & Restaurant with the amazing view, becomes the top spot for curated cocktails and menus, from early noon to late night. The “Elixir” Bar with the Live Spirits Lab is the heart of the hotel's day-long entertainment, as well as the best place to learn the secrets of the hotel’s original recipes. 


As Rejuvenation is about Body & Soul balance, the Wellness Grounds of KOIA are designed to create an ongoing relaxing experience in three distinct pillars: The “Ydor” Indoor Wellness Area, where guests can enjoy the benefits of Thalassotherapy, the Cliff Grove with the special, alfresco Spa & Massage Therapies with only natural treatments and recipes, as well as the KOIA In-Room Spa Amenities, that preserve the wellness experience during the guests’ entire stay. 


Completing the storytelling experience at KOIA All-Suite Wellbeing Resort, the hotel’s Concierge Spot at the “Philosophy Lounge”, organizes the most amazing destination explorations, that combine local culture with activities, historical sights, and natural landmarks.
