How it started
Petra and Kostas Stergiou first visited Patmos as tourists some 40 years ago and instantly fell in love with the unique aura of the island. Before they knew it, they embarked on their dream to build a special place to welcome sophisticated travelers. Continuously upping their game, they joined Small Luxury Hotels of the World and turned the hotel into a modern boutique gem that emanates a blend of understated luxury and authenticity in every little corner. Through decades of hard work, they built the current myth of the_Petra: a labor of love with just 11 rooms, unpretentious exclusivity, a homey feel with mama's food, and open handed 5-star Greek hospitality.
