Greek brands only. Patmos Aktis Suites & Spa retail store began its operation in 2010. The continuous rise of Greek fashion industry affected the store’s philosophy. Gradually, more and more Greek brands were included in the boutiue's collections until finally, in 2018, it was decided that the store would be transformed into a high class boutique and become an ambassador of Greek fashion industry, in Patmos Island.

We created a website for our traditional tavern, «Plefsis»! Besides the visitors’ pleasant navigation and information regarding the menu and location of the tavern, the main goal of this website is to highlight Dodecanese, and at the same time Patmian, cuisine. For this purpose, there is a separate section «Local Cuisine», presenting genuine Dodecanese recipes served in the tavern. Dodecanese cuisine, rich in first-quality goods and with countless variations, is an incomparable competitive advantage for all remoted islands. Therefore, traditional tavern «Plefsis» revives old recipes and uses local products to enrich visitors’ travel experience. With local gastronomy, cultural elements, customs and traditions of the island as basic foundations, Patmos gradually claims its place in the gastronomic map of the country. And «Plefsis» aspires to not only help with this claim, but also lead the way in building the modern gastronomic identity of Patmos. Visit the new website
