The Aphrodite Hotel and Suites is a family friendly accommodation on the southwest coast of Samos Island designed to offer guests a pleasant and comfortable stay just in front of an amazing golden sand beach.

Set amid the fragrant olive grove and the lush greenery next to the beach the Aphrodite Hotel is replete with a variety of wonderful amenities and services offering a home away from home to all of its guests.

The view from the hotel to the highest mountain of Samos, called the Kerkis, is amazing. The 16 minimalist designed rooms are pleasantly decorated with soft pastel nuances and white oak furniture creating a warm and cosy ambience for true moments of enjoyment.

The rooms feature a cosy balcony with sea or pool view, fully equipped kitchenette, refrigerator, toaster, private bathroom with shower and hair dryer, satellite TV, individually controlled air condition, a telephone with direct external line, safe deposit box and complimentary WI-FI internet connection. Noteworthy is the presence of COCO-MAT matresses. They are made in Greece from natural materials and guarantee a good, dreamy sleep.

You will begin your mornings with a session of Hatha yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation. During the evenings, Qi Gong classes will be taught to heal the minds and bodies. Shibashi consists of 18 movements; through these slow, relaxed, and conscious movements, guests will gain the ability to achieve internal harmony and balance. During two mindfulness workshops, you will learn to shift attention to the here and now and leave other things to what they are. This way, you can achieve some form of physical and mental relaxation.

You will visit the excavation of the Temple of Hera in Ireon. This will go under the guidance of Hillie Kuipers, the author of the book "Kélenóh, the last high priestess of Samos."
