If you have ever wanted to discover the timeless elegance of the Aegean, then Kos Imperial is the hotel for you. Set in gloriously lush mature gardens and epitomising all that is great and good about Greece, this luxury hotel combines notable service, creative cooking, a sumptuous spa and a beautiful pebble beach for an unforgettable holiday.

Kos Imperial is a big place - at over 100,000 m2 the hotel is one of the biggest resorts on the island. The star attraction is undoubtedly the expansive lagoon that winds its way through the resort. Water features dominate here: reflecting pools, waterfalls and a lazy river that swirls around a tiny central island and feeds into the main swimming pool. Mature, exotic tropical gardens cascade to the beach’s edge complete the effect.

Set between sunshine and coastline the hotel is spectacular. There is a definite relaxed elegance here - massive wood beams overhead, stone floors, comfy furniture and soft tones set the mood. Kos Imperial is island living at its finest - extensive sea views from almost everywhere in the resort allow your mind to wander as you gaze amazed at the horizon, where on a clear day you can see all the way to Turkey just opposite. Cool sea breezes accompany the view of yachts and fishing boats travelling the Aegean sea.  

Located on the north of the island, Kos Imperial is the penultimate resort on the Psalidi strip. The beach is backed by a lively promenade that buzzes with local life come dusk. The resort is a little too far to walk into Kos Old Town (at 4 km) but it’s only a short taxi ride to the pretty Byzantine village. However, if you just want to stay at the resort it’s no hardship. There’s a plethora of choice for guests from fine dining to a food court, to onsite activities that include a kids club with its own mini-buffet.


Hotel child prices apply to ages 2 - 11 years.

About the location

Beautiful sea, crisp white beaches, and charming Byzantine villages add character and colour to this gorgeous Greek Island. Part of the Dodecanese group of islands, Kos is a discovery of picturesque narrow streets and winding alleyways dotted with medieval castles, and elegant domed churches.

Kos Town is only 4 km away from the resort. Take a short taxi ride to visit the island’s capital and enjoy a gentle day of getting lost in the labyrinthine streets, visiting archaeological remains, stocking up on souvenirs and enjoying some of the island’s splendid food and drink. Kos is blessed with many treasures both natural and man-made and it is not unusual to become blasé at the millennia-old Greek ruins are scattered everywhere you turn.

The island’s golden beaches and fertile marine life are a great pull for many, but Kos’ strategic placement between east and west makes it one of Greece’s most interesting islands. Vestiges of both worlds can be found here, from footprints of the ancient Greeks and Romans to crusading medieval knights, to Byzantine and Ottoman rulers to 20th-century Italian bureaucrats. Historians should not forget that Kos is also the birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. Visits to archaeological sites including the Asclepius where Hippocrates taught or the temple of Apollo are dripping with history while the natural springs at Asklepion, which are still in use today, offer an opportunity to bathe as the Gods once did. Even Cleopatra was said to be a fan.
