It’s not only the long, optimistic dives that will remain unforgetable during your stay in the revived Xenia. Your afternoon strolls in the outdoor area of the hotel, giving you the impression of walking in Chora, will be memorable, as well. White-washed stone walls, picturesque alleys decorated with all kinds of flowers, leading you from one neighbor to another, and well preserved gardens, compose this contemporary white province of 56 rooms and villas. The mystic ambiance creates the impression of being lost somewhere in the Eastern Mediterranean, with the sun following every step of your way.
Here, contemporary minimalism comes hand in hand with traditional elements. The construction materials won’t dominate you, you are free to wander, enjoy the salty air and discover all these features that invisibly combine the hotel with the island’s historical and cultural identity. The riddle of this unconscious, yet existing, discovery starts from the lobby, where you notice a red inked signature on the wall behind the reception desk. It represents the contract with which, in April 1088, Alexios A’ Komninos handed over Patmos Ιsland to Saint Christodoulos, in order to build the Monastery of Saint John the Evangelist.
