With Luxury Suites, a Sparkling Spa and a Dedicated Kids’ Club, This Ultra All-Inclusive Has It All

Greece is a dream destination for island hopping and romantic vacations, but its secluded coves and crystal-clear waters—plus standout hotels like Princess Andriana Resort & Spa—also make it a firm favorite among families. Located on the southeastern coast of Rhodes overlooking Kiotari Beach, which is one of the island’s most popular summer hangouts, the stunning five-star, ultra all-inclusive resort provides an exceptional range of activities, from a kids’ club and polished Euphoria Spa to a whopping nine bars and restaurants. Soaking up the sun beside the expansive central swimming pool is another popular way to spend time. An hour’s drive from Rhodes International Airport, the resort is 20 minutes from the ancient town of Lindos, whose clifftop acropolis makes for an excellent day trip. With that said, here are five reasons your next family trip should be to this stunning coastal resort in Greece.

Elegant Family Rooms and Suites With Sea Views

From an executive suite to a honeymoon room with a private swim-up pool, the 537-key Princess Andriana Resort & Spa has 11 different accommodation styles to choose from—although anyone traveling with kids will love the Family Room with a Shared Pool, which features a sofa bed in the living room and is located near a large shared freshwater pool in a bungalow-style building on the ground floor. There’s a sliding door for privacy between the main bedroom, which can be configured with double or twin beds, and includes the option to add a baby cot. Amenities include a smart TV with satellite and music channels, plus a minibar and refreshment center. But don’t think being a family room means it loses points for style; they’re equally as well-appointed as deluxe rooms and suites in a tasteful palette of whites and taupes with high-end furnishings. Another great option for families is the Junior Suite Sharing Pool Sea View, which has a balcony overlooking the Aegean Sea and can sleep up to four.


Kids’ Club Programming That Goes Above and Beyond

Young travelers have plenty of options to create, play and make new friends at the Princess Andriana Resort & Spa thanks to its impressive Kids’ Club, whose dedicated programming features everything from sports to all-day entertainment, including games, art classes, animations and contests. Supervised by a multilingual staff from 10 a.m. until 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. daily (except Sundays), children between 4 and 12 years old are welcome to spend time at the space, giving parents alone time with peace of mind. There’s also a nightly fountain show set to music while the amphitheater hosts variety shows and a kid-friendly mini disco. The games room—open 24 hours and features air hockey and billiards—children’s playground and kids pool (located right next to the adult pool so you can keep a watchful eye) are all firm favorites and add even more options into the mix for families. On the sportier side, there’s mini golf, table tennis and a mini soccer field for having a five-a-side family kickaround.


Parents Can Get Top-to-Toe Pampered at the Spa 

If you can tear yourself away from the pool or sunlounger on Kiotari Beach, Princess Andriana’s beautifully designed Euphoria Spa is a tranquil and stunning architectural space guaranteed to help you unwind. Open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., the tricky part will be deciding which treatments to book: the Aegeo Spas Ritual Massage, ancient Japanese Lifting “Kobido” Massage, and “Ice-Effect” Face Massage will all leave you floating. Another spa highlight is the complimentary use of the sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish steam bath hammam, and indoor freshwater pool pre- or post-treatment (pro tip: the poolside massage showers work wonders on tired, knotty shoulders). Other wellness highlights include a stylish fitness center with top-of-the-line Technogym equipment and exercise classes like aerobics and water gymnastics, so there’s no excuse for missing those daily workouts. There’s also a hair salon that offers a range of services from cut, color and styling to bridal makeup, waxing and nail care with gel and nail art, so you’re covered in case there wasn’t time for that pre-vacation mani and pedi.


Restaurants for Every Type of Occasion

An ultra all-inclusive resort perk is the wealth of culinary offerings offered, and Princess Andriana delivers with eight unique concepts that will take you from breakfast through lunch and afternoon snacks to dinner and drinks, including some of the best bars in Rhodes, Greece. The aptly named All Day Restaurant and Bar is the place for light meals and snacks but switches to more of a bar vibe in the evening. Additional daytime destinations at this Rhodes, Greece hotel include the Coral Snack Bar & Restaurant for salads, fresh fruits and lighter fare served buffet-style near the beach; if you’re hanging out poolside, head to Fresh for cocktails, soft drinks and coffees. Nighttime options include Coral BBQ (try Greek speciality antikristo, which are meat skewers cooked on hot stones in front of an open fire) and signature restaurant Medallion for the dinner buffet, which begins at 6:30 p.m., or a late snack dinner starting at 10 p.m. For cocktails, there’s the swanky Royal Main Bar or the Moonlight VIP Lounge, which is connected to the special occasion A la Carte Restaurant.

Located just steps from the blue flag Kiotari Beach, guests with little ones love posting up in one of the waterfront sunbeds for a day to relax and swim in the crystal-clear Aegean Sea, but if you’re looking for things to do with the family beyond snorkeling and watersports, Princess Andriana Resort & Spa’s concierge team can help plan a range of experiences and excursions. At this Greece hotel, a floating breakfast tray is fun to enjoy in your private pool, but off-property there’s a cooking class in a traditional farmhouse, horseback riding in Rhodes and a private tour of historical sites, including a clifftop acropolis in the nearby town of Lindosfeaturing gates and reliefs that date back to the fourth century. Maybe a tailor-made private evening picnic will appeal or even a marine boat trip to see dolphins and visit Alimia, a remote island west of Rhodes. The team at this luxe hotel in Greece can also arrange airport transfers so you and the kids can make the 90-minute trip in style and comfort.
