Elegant rooms and suites all enjoy Aegean Sea views, and with two swimming pools, plus picturesque Kiotari Beach steps away, the hardest part of staying here will be leaving the property to explore the island. Thanks to its sweet-spot location on Rhodes’ southeast coast, the ancient town of Lindos—with its clifftop acropolis—is just 10 miles up the road, with buzzy nightlife spot Faliraki and the Medieval City of Rhodes within easy driving distance. Here’s an inside look at this stunning Rhodes resort.


Quiet Luxury Rooms, Bungalows and Suites

If you love lounging poolside—and daydream about walking straight out of your room and into the water—then you’ll love the ultra-luxe Mayia Suites, which feature furnished terraces, huge private pools and, for the best of both worlds, are positioned steps from the beach. Decorated in a serene palette of pale whites and creams with tasteful gold and natural wood accents, these are the most exclusive option at the 250-key resort with just eight available. Although, with 10 accommodation styles available—from deluxe rooms with sea view balconies in the main building to bungalows with swim-up garden views in the annex— there’s something to suit every type of traveler. No matter which one you decide to check-in to, amenities are plentiful and range from minibars and pillow menus to Nespresso machines and 24-hour room service.


There’s a Superlative Spa Sanctuary

If you’re looking for a bit of serenity during your stay, wellness takes center stage at Mayia Spa––a sanctuary-like space where it’s easy to lose track of time and become immersed in a dreamy environment of total rest and rejuvenation. In addition to the massive Turkish bath, there’s a sauna, heated indoor swimming pool and whirlpool. With seven treatment rooms, including a suite for couples, the space feels surprisingly intimate, and the menu features a variety of primarily facial and massage treatments. For something locally inspired, try the Minoans Ancient massage, which uses Cretan herbs and traditional Greek techniques. Beyond the spa are tennis courts and a top-of-the-line fitness studio for strength training or classes like Pilates, aerobics and beginners’ yoga. There’s also a hair salon for cut and styling services, plus nail care that includes manis and pedis. Adults-Only Resort in Greece


Activities Take Guests From Sun-up to Sundown

Vacations are for doing as little or as much as you desire, and Mayia Exclusive Resort & Spa covers both bases beautifully. The private beach area at this Rhodes, Greece hotel is dotted with Balinese sunbeds and umbrellas, and its Splash Beach Bar opens at 10 a.m., which means you could be toes in the sand with a morning-approved adult beverage after breakfast. Similarly, the resort grounds feature two infinity pools, one of which wraps around the swim-up Senso Bar if you prefer to base yourself here. But with a range of activities, including cooking lessons and dance and mixology classes, you can keep busy learning new skills too. There’s a Library Corner if you’re looking for quiet time with a good book and an amphitheater with live music and entertainment. Night owls can party until 2 a.m. at the buzzy but chic Bo Nightclub



Diverse Restaurants and Bars for Every Occasion

A major all-inclusive highlight is the cuisine, and Mayia Exclusive Resort & Spa delivers here too. The premium package includes breakfast, lunch and a la carte dinners, plus alcoholic beverages (including in-room mini bars, among other perks). When it comes to dining, with seven different restaurants, you could pick a new spot every night. Daytime options include Street Food Corner for takeaway snacks and Healthy Bits for salads and juices. After sunset, there’s Wasabi for Asian fusion and Italian trattoria Al Dente for pastas and pizza, but at Greek restaurant Thymari, the gastronomic flames dining experience is a crowd-favorite. Before dinner, head to glitzy Oinos Wine & Champagne Bar for sundowner cocktails or the opulent Del Mar Main Bar, which has nightly live piano and jazz performances. Both of them boast spectacular Aegean Sea views but perhaps Del Mar slightly more so. Adults-Only Resort in Greece



Ancient Towns and Beautiful Beaches Await on Rhodes

The largest of the Dodecanese islands and the fourth largest in Greece, Rhodes enchants travelers with its stunning landscapes, ancient history and its scenic namesake principal city. Must-visit archaeological sites include the Lindos Acropolis and UNESCO World Heritage Site Medieval Old Town, although the thermal baths at Kalithea Springs, whose spa buildings were originally built by the Italians in 1928, are worth visiting too. And with its rugged coastline and crystal-clear waters, the island’s natural beauty totally lends itself to being outside—from exploring mountain hiking trails and stopping in quaint local villages to sampling traditional cuisine or visiting a winery. While the waterfront at Mayia Exclusive Resort & Spa is considered a bit pebbly, there’s a sublime stretch of sand shaded by towering pine trees 7 miles away at laid-back beach resort Pefki.  


Look Forward to a Wealth of Premium Services

When it comes to luxury stays, resorts that go the extra mile stand out the most, and with its sophisticated decor and dining experiences aside, another feather in the cap of Mayia Exclusive Resort & Spa is its long list of guest services. There’s a 24-hour reception and welcome option for early check-in depending on what time your flight lands, plus transportation to and from the airport, which is an hour away. This is a major perk if you don’t plan on renting a car. And thanks to a public bus stop at the front of this Greece hotel, you won’t be stranded if you want to explore locally.
