Sophistication in Lindos

A magical hotel just below the Acropolis of Lindos!

The Melenos-Lindos is located just below the historical Lindos Acropolis and has for many years been one of our favourite places on the island. The hotel`s twelve individual suites, cascading down the mountainside, are a work of art in themselves. The terraces off each suite enjoy not just amazing views of the Aegean but are also packed full of ornamental pots, beautiful stone work and an abundance of planting.

The owner and creator of the hotel is Michalis Melenos who has embellished his hotel with a magic and sophistication that is a pleasure to experience.

Apart from the hotel itself their is an excellent restaurant that we always recommend our guests at VLK to book for lunches or evening meals  – in a setting that is hard to beat anywhere on the island.

Villa Melenos is also available and offers a sophisticated and private retreat for up to 5 guests.

Contact Michalis and his team on the contact details below and mention that Philip and Peter from VLK sent you. You will be very well looked after.

What We Like The Most

The 17th century styling of the Melenos-Lindos is realised to perfection and the whole hotel oozes traditional Greek charm (with plenty of Turkish elements added to the mix).

The individual suites, and the terraces off them, are truly beautiful and indulgent places to stay. We adore planted pots and the gardens here are in the form of a vast collection of ornamental pots and planters that are scattered throughout.

The quality of food and service is only matched by the sea views the restaurant overlooks.

The welcome you receive from all involved at the Melenos-Lindos is warm and welcoming, professional and thouroughly attentive.

And they have a little gift shop. We love a little gift shop and this is the finest on the island! Far from selling the mundane and predictable the Fouli Gift Shop allows visitors the opportunity (even if you are not a hotel guest) to purchase some fine, personally sourced, decorative items, fabrics, cushions and jewellery.

If you are staying as a guest, dining at their restaurant or just visiting the gift shop you will discover, within seconds of arriving, just why we love everything presented at the Melenos-Lindos.
