We recently got married at the Aegialis Hotel in Amorgos. We had 28 family and friends travel all the way from Australia for the wedding and stay for 1 week. It could not have been more perfect!
The Aegialis Hotel is a fantastic hotel and unlike many hotels it felt like a home away from home. The hotel has a beautiful design and the backdrop is the most magnificent view of expansive blue seas, mountain side and smaller islands in the distance. I have been to many Greek islands and I can say at that the view enjoyed by the Aegialis Hotel is among the best. I had only seen the Hotel via the website and through photographs. I could tell through photographs that this place was amazing, however seeing the hotel and the view in person were far beyond my expectations. We enjoyed a very warm welcome with the traditional island drink “Psimeni Raki” and the staff were so warm and friendly. The Hotel is owned and run by such a warm and friendly family. They did a great job of making sure we were looked after and really made you feel like part of the family. The hotel has fantastic facilities. The salt water swimming pool was magnificent and the Hotel's Spa and Sauna was great. We were able to fit in a personal training session, massages and beauty treatments.
Irene the Hotel owner did a fantastic job of helping plan and organize our wedding. We felt like guests at our own wedding! The stress and organising that I hear a lot of people complain about when getting married – we were fortunate enough not to experience thanks to Irene. We were married at a beautiful little church, high on a mountain top overlooking the sea. We reached the church via an ancient road and were serenaded by the Hotel’s violinist and Liah Guitar players. It was really beautiful and words cannot describe this experience. Following the wedding we had some light refreshments at the church, followed by a cocktail party at the Hotel and then dinner and dancing by the pool. For those still standing, the party continued at Club Corte – the Hotel’s nightclub until 5.30am. We lost complete track of time!
If you are thinking of getting married overseas we cannot recommend the Aegialis Hotel highly enough. As for Amorgos, this is an island that I will return to again and again. If you would like to visit a Greek Island that gives you an opportunity to experience traditional greek culture, great food, island locals, beautiful beaches, walking tracks and magnificent high mountain top views of the sea, without that commercialised feel then you will love Amorgos. It is the type of place where you lose complete track of time and where relaxation and contemplation reaches another level!. We came across a few people who had travelled to Amorgos as visitors and never left. It is not hard to see how that can happen.
Amorgos and the Aegialis Hotel are truly amazing and definitely worth the long ferry trip to get there!
