Greece’s Newest Luxury Hotel Is Located on the Untouched Cycladic Island of Paros

Paros is quickly becoming the talk of the town among its fellow Cycladic neighbors, often being compared to the Mykonos of yesteryear—when cruise ship tourists didn’t run amok. With the influx of travelers adding this idyllic spot to their island-hopping itineraries, the demand for more luxurious accommodations has become evident. So, the award-winning Andronis hospitality group is taking advantage of this desire, paving the way for upscale hotels with its recent opening of Andronis Minois.

Situated in Parasporos, the estate is nestled beside a tranquil cove, offering unparalleled views of the Aegean Sea. As a proud member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the property celebrates the Mediterranean’s rich tapestry with its 44 luxury suites designed to replicate the aura of a traditional Greek village. Everything is pristine and new—even the door handles have a satisfying snap when opened.

The lobby exudes a retro aesthetic with curvy, abstract artwork, blue and burnt-orange decor, and seating banquets adorned with bookshelves and succulents. Minimalist design principles further enhance the coastal, laid-back beachy vibe, creating a serene oceanfront hideaway. Smooth, arched doorways, white-washed plastered walls, and textured furnishings inspired by the Spanish, French, Moroccan, and Italian Rivieras complement the classic Cycladic architecture.

Its grand centerpiece pool sports an enticing day-to-night lounge deck, tempting guests to relax and sunbathe from sunrise to sunset. From its posh terracotta-patterned chairs to its covered daybeds and the accessible pool bar, it’s hard to resist lounging by the water with a drink instead of sightseeing around Paros. (We recommend trying the Sea You libation, featuring Bombay Sapphire London dry gin, elderflower liqueur, lime cordial, and blue soda for a vibrant blue hue.)

Nestled into the tiered landscape of the Minois Hotel, OLVO Restaurant offers sweeping vistas of the Aegean Sea as guests embark on a culinary journey. Under the esteemed Chef Tsantila, the eatery presents an authentic yet innovative Greek menu, highlighting dishes like Froutalia and Trachanas with egg, spinach, and Lountza, served daily for breakfast, alongside yogurt parfaits and a tempting pastry buffet. For lunch and dinner, there’s an emphasis on seafood, with plates including Grouper Fricassee with a citrus lemon sauce and fresh tagliolini with eel.

Paros is where you have your vacation; it’s relaxed and not obnoxiously replete with tourists, yet it still feels like it’s part of the in-crowd. Staying at Andronis Minois serves as the gateway to this untouched escape, allowing guests to explore an unspoiled corner of Greece and depart feeling refreshed.
