If you’re looking for a romantic holiday, you might want to consider heading to the pretty Greek island of Rhodes. With dramatic scenery, beautiful beaches and traditional towns, it’s the perfect place to get lost with someone you love; having visited myself, I can totally understand why this is the place where the lovebirds flock. Once you’ve got your heart set on this destination, the only thing left to do is decide where to stay. There’s a hotel here that’s perfect for every couple, whether you love being in the heart of the action, want a bohemian getaway or are looking to indulge in some complete relaxation.
Perfect for couples who love getting out and about, the smartline Semiramis is found near the centre of Rhodes, with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Old Town just a 20-minute stroll away. The hotel’s bright, clean and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need for a fantastic couples holiday to Rhodes. You’re also right near the beach and plenty of shops and restaurants. There’s nothing better than dressing up and going for a couple of classy cocktails with your other half, which you can do by Rhodes’ harbour. Want more of a lively evening? There are plenty of fun hangouts like the Fuego Music Bar which spins old school RnB tunes well into the early hours. By day, you can explore the same area, but instead make your way around traditional market stalls and boutique shops.
Casa Cook Rhodes
The exclusively-adults hangout of Casa Cook Rhodes is sure to offer you something you’ve never experienced before. Full of natural materials and local influences, you and your other half can completely lose yourself in the spirit of Greece. Authentic yet modern, the bohemian lifestyle here’s an Instagrammer’s dream; and make sure you snap one of the quirky cocktails for your page! There’s also a huge focus on nourishing the mind, body and soul. Head out on a morning hike up Tsambika Hill to reward yourself with views of the beautiful beach below or explore the monastery at the summit. You could also push the boat out with a romantic cruise along the coast, where you can swim and snorkel before discovering the famous Kallithea springs; it’ll be a holiday you’ll always remember.
SENTIDO Port Royal Villas & Spa
If you’re looking for pure peace and quiet with everything at your fingertips, SENTIDO Port Royal Villas & Spa, as featured on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, is fantastic choice for your couple’s holiday to Rhodes. Found right on a sandy beach, this 5-star All Inclusive hotel means that you won’t have to worry about a single thing, so you can focus solely on relaxing. Of course, you can still do excursions if you’d like to, but you can just as easily spend a lazy afternoon at the onsite spa and enjoy one of the many treatments. There’s also an amazing à la carte restaurant here, which would be perfect as a luxurious treat for your last night. The atmosphere is especially calm as it’s adults-only, meaning you can spend some quiet, quality time with your loved one, dreaming of the next place to go on holiday.
