Many hotels in Europe claim unique and stunning locations. They claim tradition and history and quite often a strong dose of faded fame. And service that is underwhelming at best!
Not so, the Grand Hotel Timeo. An utterly stunning hillside location with the ancient Greek theatre behind, and overlooking the sapphire blue Bay of Naxos, the views are timeless and magical. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the hotel delivers highly personalized service, exceptional cuisine with a style and flair that is rarely encountered today.
But can everything be so perfect in one hotel….. well yes! If there is one small negative, it would be some of the smaller rooms. They are well appointed, as you would expect from a luxury hotel, but may will not blow the socks off everyone. Spent a little extra and go for the junior suite category- well worth the extra cost.
And yes, such style and luxury comes at a cost but if you are going to spend your hard earned cash anywhere in Italy for a luxury hotel experience, this is the place to do it! Enjoy!
