Hotel Overview


Perched on a remote spot on the water’s edge, Kyrimai’s stone terraces extend right out into the sea, with stunning, uninterrupted views of the surrounding cliffs and the Mediterranean Sea.


The rooms effortlessly blend natural materials with modern furniture and luxury amenities, all the while maintaining the sense of place that makes Kyrimai so special. Every room is unique in style and decor but most feature beautiful stone walls, wooden-beamed ceilings and antique Italian floor tiles.

Let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep by opting for a room with sea views, with a large shared waterfront veranda, or choose the Loft Suite, just 25 metres from the sea, or the Master Suite, to enjoy a private balcony right over the water, a Jacuzzi and a cosy fireplace. Some rooms are on two levels, offering plenty of space, while the Tower Room, set in the 1870s tower, has 360-degree views of Gerolimenas Bay, the village and the sea. 


Start each day with breakfast on the deck by the sea, before heading out to explore the pretty scenery, Byzantine churches and quaint port towns of the region. An evening meal at the hotel's award-winning restaurant comes highly recommended - the delicious menu, promises a creative take on the region's best-loved specialities, including fresh fish. 


The hotel has an inviting pool perched right on the sea edge, with lovely views. Alternatively, opt for one of the sunloungers placed right on the flat rocky outcrop which extends out from the hotel into the sea.


If the seafront setting beckons you into the Mediterranean for a dip, Kyrimai offers a jetty for access, or a 20-minute drive will take you to a sandy stretch of beach. A short stroll out of the hotel will bring you to the tiny village of Gerolimenas, which has a sprinkling of tavernas, cafés and shops.
