A Little Bit of Heaven in a Frigid World – Patmos Aktis

The Frigid temperatures of winter are upon us here in Princeton, NJ. As I look out my window at the snow covered landscape, I am reminiscent of the warm summer days at the exquisite Patmos Aktis Suites & Spa. It is a 5-star luxury hotel situated on Grikos Beach on the the island of Patmos … and my husband and I were lucky enough to go there.


The amenities include private townhouse pools, indoor and outdoor emerald-colored pools and a pristine outstretched beach along Grikos Bay.


The all-white exterior and interior exude a sleek, modern atmosphere while blending perfectly with the traditional architecture of Patmos.

Views of the outstretched beach and indigo bay are enjoyed from every angle.



The monochromatic colors and simple design elements exude luxury and comfort.



The breathtaking views of Grikos Bay penetrate the interior of the hotel through large paned glass windows and doors.


The minimalist interiors and rustic style of this Greek getaway have inspired me to recreate it in my own home. The white textured walls and Mediterranean blues of the ocean create a relaxing and down to earth atmosphere. I’m excited to embark on my own Greek inspired master bathroom makeover. Stay tuned! Opa!
