Agalia Suites is a 14-room sustainably designed boutique hotel next to the whitewashed traditional village of Chora, along with Pathos Lounge, an outdoor retreat overlooking the Aegean Sea that welcomes day visitors by blending nature and nurture seamlessly together. Both represent a new approach to travel in Greece, mixing modern art and luxury to embrace cultural and natural heritage based on a commitment to sustainable tourism. Think centuries-old olive trees and private gardens with plush pillows amid traditional Cycladic architecture, while savoring the best Greek wines with dishes made from locally grown and freshly prepared ingredients. Call it a new Greek formula for travel that embraces sense of place and celebrates the beauty of Greece, while protecting it for future generations.

We are committed to protecting Ios from that fate,” says Vassiliki Perridou, President of LuxurIos Island Experience.

With more than 5,000 acres of stunning private island landscape, including wild mountains and valleys, along with 10 private beaches that are among the most beautiful in the entire Aegean, guests who book their holidays with LuxurIos Island Experiences will discover a Greece free from tourist crowds.

“We have made a conscious decision to build on only 1% of our land on Ios, leaving the rest to remain part of nature to help ensure that future generations will also be able to enjoy the island’s wild beauty and magnificent beaches,” adds Perridou.

Overlooking the sparkling sea, Agalia Suites boutique hotel has a large, chemical-free swimming pool and 14 individually designed artistic suites.hotelioslounge Awarded with 4 Keys for its excellent facilities and services, this stylish hotel brings together luxury and authenticity, and its ideal location creates the perfect setting for exploring the nearby town of Chora, setting out on daily adventures to find the hidden coves and pristine beaches dotting the island, and returning to watch the sunset in the comfortable ambiance of Pathos Lounge.  A stay at Agalia is all about embracing the laidback lifestyle of Ios and enjoying the high quality guest services of LuxurIos Island Experience.
