The charming owner Michalis Melenos has taken 13 years to reach his dream of creating this stunning small luxury hotel Melenos Lindos. An avid traveller and artefacts collector Michalis wanted to create a small boutique hotel which could showcase the the heritage of ancient village of Lindos as well as his collection of rare treasures from Turkey, the Middle East & Greece. In keeping with the beautiful natural surroundings, this chic retreat was built with an eco-friendly approach, with locally-quarried sand-stone, pebbles from nearby beaches, fragments of Greek marble and Katrani cedar amongst the materials used, creating a wonderful finish.
Lindos is an ancient village (3000 years old) on the island of Rhodes and is an important place for pilgrimage. The Temple of Athena sits above Melenos Lindos with two harbours either side. Michalis Melenos is now offering cookery courses in the professional kitchens where you can learn some of your favourite dishes and take the flavours of Greek cuisine home. If not only the food, but the style of Melenos Lindos captures your imagination, why not visit their boutique, Fouli to find some great pieces of your own.
The best quality and freshest ingredients are used by the chefs at Melenos Lindos - nothing else will do. The dishes are imaginative and draw their inspiration from Greek and Mediterranean traditions. The restaurant is very pretty and it has an outside terrace which looks across the sea and which is lit up by lanterns at night, providing the perfect romantic setting.
