Our History

  • 1970 - 1980

    The founder of the Hotel, Antonis Patakos, living in Australia, had always in his mind to create his own business in Kos. In 1974 he came to Kos and he predicted that Kos will become a significant tourist resort. He bought land and in 1976 he started the construction of the Hotel. In April 1978 the Hotel opened with 18 rooms and its first tourists from Finland.

  • 1981 - 1990

    In 1981 a third floor was added with 8 additional rooms. In 1984 a piece of neighbouring land was bought and during 1984-85 the Hotel was extended for an additional 21 rooms, increasing the capacity of the rooms to 47.



  • 1991 - 2000

    In 1991 the pool was built and many changes made to the public areas. In 1998-2000 we decided to make a major renovation. During that time a renovation was held on the plumbing system and electrical installations, floors with tiles instead of carpet, new toilets and showers, double window frames, television and individual air-conditioning in rooms, etc.

  • 2001 - 2012

    In 2004 and 2012 the outside walls were painted. In 2009 new mattresses were bought and in 2011 we installed wi-fi in public areas and rooms.
