Sea spa: An eco-friendly Eden at Rhodes' Gennadi Grand Resort

Where is it?

Sitting on the island’s south-east coast, this beachfront oasis is the complete antithesis of the tourist-filled cobbled streets of Rhodes Old Town. The island may be famed for its Byzantine past but this minimalist Eden, set between rocky shores and cypress-clad hills, is a statement of its future.

What’s the hype?

This brand-new green retreat is designed to seamlessly sink into its surroundings, with low-slung buildings and floor-to- ceiling windows blurring the boundaries between inside and out. Its eco-credentials include a reverse osmosis plant that provides the resort with water – including its 161 sparkling private pools

What to have?

The Grand Spa is an underground sanctuary with cool, grey stone walls and low-lit corridors. Need to de-stress? Opt for an aromatherapy massage and choose between calming natural lavender or uplifting mandarin oils. Those in need of a detox should try the Mediterranean Olive Oil body treatment – a local product known for its antioxidant and anti-ageing properties. Then kick back in the glass-fronted sauna and steam rooms.

Best by boat?

Arrivals by sea can moor in Kolona Port in Rhodes town, which can host yachts up to 80 metres, while larger vessels can head to the Tourist Port next door. Or drop anchor in Gennadi Bay and tender into the hotel’s pebble beach.
