A striking, stunning island in the Aegean Sea, Kos offers unrivalled beaches, picturesque towns and fascinating archaeological sites, the perfect destination for your next luxury Greece holiday.

A ruggedly beautiful island in the Dodecanese, Kos combines charming old towns and bustling coastal resorts with remote sandy bays and a glimpse into the beguiling past of Ancient Greece.

A must-visit on your luxury Kos holiday, the island’s countless beaches rival the very best in Greece, comprising powdered sands lapped by the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Meanwhile, an array of cultural treasures, important monuments and historic buildings stretch across the rugged terrain of Kos. Highlights include the:

  • Spectacular Sanctuary of Asclepius,
  • The Antimachia Fortress and
  • The Ancient Agora excavation area.

Pretty Kos Town is home to a striking medieval castle, Venetian and Ottoman architecture, leafy historic streets and a picturesque port; lined with traditional tavernas, bustling bars and luxury yachts.

A number of enchanting villages are dotted around Kos, including hillside Kefalos on the island’s west coast. This secluded and ultra-scenic corner is home to the elegant Ikos Aria resort, an all-inclusive hideaway offering Michelin-star cuisine, an incredible spa and an array of great activities: the perfect base for your luxury Greece holiday.
