Reviews of Petra Hotel in Patmos

SLH logo Conde Nast Traveller logo

Each year the Petra Hotel & Suites accepts the responsibility of living up to the reputation that its past guests and numerous Greek and foreign publications acknowledge. A small sample of references is provided below:


THE TIMES

THE TIMES 20 best boutique hotels in Greece
"Patmos, one of the northernmost of the Dodecanese, attracts thousands of pilgrims a year as many Christian scholars believe it was here that the Apostle John wrote the Book of Revelation after a visit from Jesus. This hotel — a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World — is another of the island’s revelations. Forget typically whitewashed walls and flashes of Mediterranean blue, the rooms here have a much more Italian feel with ochre walls, granite floors and plump furnishings.” - The London Times.

Forbes.com

Forbes.com The manager of the hotel I stayed in, Petra Hotel & Suites, built a vacation home for his family and then, because the home was beautiful and it cost a lot to maintain, began renting out rooms. Then slowly, only adding what he wanted to add on, the hotel became the hotel to stay at in Patmos and is now considered one of the best in Greece.

Fodor's - Fodor's Choice Award 2010 – 2012

Fodor's One of Greece's truly special retreats sits high above Grikos bay south of Skala and provides a luxurious yet informal getaway. Guest rooms are large and beautifully appointed with local antiques and art as well as built-in divans and other touches of a distinct island style. [...] A lavish breakfast is served on a large veranda that serves as lobby, dining room, and gathering spot, and where a member of the gracious Stergiou clan is usually on hand to dispense advice about enjoying the island. Pros: attractive and comfortable surroundings; wonderful outdoor spaces; superb service and hospitality; beach is just steps away. Cons: the hotel climbs a series of terraces reached only by steps.
