I'm quick to appreciate vacations of all sorts, but Melenos Lindos was magical. Walking down to it through the web of stone pathways was just the beginning of a mystical getaway. The resort is steps from the colorful shops in Lindos villages and a few steps more in either direction to the beautiful beach below or the Acropolis above, although it will take some motivation to leave the lovely setting they've created here. Access to everything, yet tucked away in a quiet, romantic corner that feels untouched by the world around it.
Maria greeted us as though she'd been eagerly anticipating our arrival, walking us through the resort - a lovely labyrinth of stonework, grape vines, shady trellises and bougainvillea - and showing us to our unbelievable suite. The rooms are like movie sets, recalling Old World romance, shades of Turkey and Morocco in the alcoves and tiled ceilings, lovely antique pieces and soft lighting - certainly one of the most romantic places I've ever stayed. And, of course, all the comforts of organic bedding, robes and slippers to add to our enjoyment of the decadent space. Fresh fruit and a bottle of wine awaited us as well.
We dined in the resort's amazing restaurant, on fresh fish and a linguini with chili pepper, lemon and fig that blew us away. Our dinner was served by a handsome, linen-clad waiter named Akis (sounds like "a kiss" spoken in exotic accent with your best bedroom voice) and the delicious complementary breakfast in the morning was served by Aphrodite herself (no joke, this was actually her name). Service impeccable. Every single person, from the lovely gentleman who opens the umbrella on your private terrace to the woman who places the chocolates in your room, is delightful.
If you need a little extra pampering, Lindos Spa is steps away and Vanessa will make your bliss complete.
We weren't planning a honeymoon, but that's exactly what you get when you stay here. If the opportunity presents itself, the gods and goddesses are smiling on you - don't miss it!!
