Blue Lagoon Hotels from Thomson
The chic Greek isle of Kos serves up not one but 4 luxury hotel options courtesy of Blue Lagoon – but which one’s right for you?
Blue Lagoon are masters at creating hotels that combine a touch of class with a personality all of their own. Whether you’re in the market for an out-of-this-world spa experience, a super-central location, a knockout pool scene or a family-friendly atmosphere, there’s a place to stay in Kos with your name on it…
For a renowned spa… Oceanis Beach and Spa Resort 4T+
Sometimes putting on your Out of Office and heading for sunnier shores just isn’t enough. From time to time you want to really get away from it all. Enter the Oceanis Beach and Spa Resort – your own personal holiday hide-out. Shrouded by more than 60 acres of serene gardens and fronted by Psalidi Beach, this adults-only retreat was built with comfort – not to mention afternoon naps – in mind. The aptly-named Euphoria Spa can’t be beaten – grab your other half and choose from the likes of hot stone massages or specialities like the Anatolia Mystic treatment, all designed to pamper 2 at a time.
For everything in easy reach… Hotel Palazzo del Mare 5T
If there’s one word that sums this place up, it’s ‘indulgence’. And plenty of it. For starters, the interior décor is as plush as they come – think funky chandeliers in the lobby, tasteful vanilla and chocolate tones in the rooms and suites, and glamorous touches like whirlpool tubs and private plunge pools. Outside you’ll be met by a chic set-up of low-rise stone and whitewashed buildings topped with wooden pergolas, and an enormous pool that spreads itself generously around the grounds. It’s also the perfect base if you want a beach in reach – the hotel lays claim to its own ribbon of sand a mere 50 metre amble from the grounds. And the village of Marmari, with its medley of shops and tavernas, is just a gentle mosey down the road.
For an incredible pool scene… Blue Lagoon Resort 4T
For aquaholics, the pool scene at the Blue Lagoon Resort is beyond compare. Take the main swimming pool for instance – it’s colossal. Not only is there an endless expanse of water to practise your strokes in, it also comes complete with whirlpool baths and water jets, all ringed by a fleet of stylish sunloungers. Well, you’ll need a lie-down after all those laps. Kids will be in their own watery paradise, with a mini waterpark featuring streamer-like slides and dragons that breathe water rather than fire. Food-wise, the buffet restaurant serves up a mix of local dishes and round-the-world favourites, or you can choose between a Greek restaurant, a barbecue joint and an Italian à la carte to get your foodie fix.
For family fun… Blue Lagoon Village 5T
One thing’s for certain – you won’t hear any complaints of boredom at the Blue Lagoon Village. There are tons of activities to keep your brood busy, like beach volleyball, basketball, table tennis and sailing for starters. Pick from the 5 pools that take centre-stage in the grounds – including one reserved just for adults to relax by, and a splash pool for little ones – or head to Adventure Land where kids can captain a pirate ship or scale the high ropes. At mealtimes you’ll be faced with just as much choice – take your pick from a whopping 8 restaurants, including an Italian pizzeria, a sushi restaurant and a barbecue joint. With jaw-dropping sea views and easy access to the beach, it’ll tick off everything on your wish-list and more.
