There are some hotel stays you would remember with a hint of sentiment and there are the ones that are just… mind-blowing and you would never want to forget them!
Last week, I was staying at Lindos Blu, which is a 5-star hotel located just outside Lindos, a small town in the southern part of Rhodes. Being honest, I think Lindos Blu deserves more than 5 stars as the overall experience of this all-blue Adult Only place is really unforgettable.
A few words about the islands first. I would never have imagined Rhodes being so exciting. The island is located only about 18km east from the Turkish shores, 350 km north from Crete and around 500 km from Athens. The location makes it a perfect ‘target’ for island hopping! It is the 4th largest Greek island historically recognised for one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, The Colossus of Rhodes. This large Greek island is interesting under loads of aspects but mainly because it is such a diverse place. It offers a lot for even the most demanding travellers and honeymooners.
Rhodes is great for hiking, cycling, diving and sightseeing. Road trip? Great idea! As I already mentioned, the island is also perfect for honeymooners – not only the European couples but for the newlyweds from all over the world.
I happened to find an IDEAL place for couples. Lindos Blu is designed to give you the privacy you need! Your stay is to be topped up with a premium-class experience and the best views!
You would land in a perfect location, not too far from the sights. The hotel is placed literally 2 minutes driving from Lindos and the Acropolis, around 1hr away from Rhodes Town and half an hour from paradise-like Anthony Quinn Bay.
Lindos Blu is constantly rewarded with some of the most prestigious travel awards, such as Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice (which is the most ‘honest’ reward within the travel industry), TUI Gold Awards but also… it was recently voted one of the TOP 25 MOST ROMANTIC HOTELS IN THE WORLD. Wow!
We were staying in a beautiful maisonette called ‘Nefeli’ which is one of the most luxurious villas in the whole resort. The features of such Maisonette are: 50 m² terrace, private 35 m² infinity pool and jacuzzi, sunbeds and it can accommodate up to 4 people, which means it is not only suitable for honeymooners but also for two couples travelling together. Would you not want to jump to this turquoise pool right before your morning Nespresso?
‘Nefeli’ was so comfortable we didn’t really want to leave! We eventually made it to Luna Rossa sea view bar. Not only the panoramic views are jaw-dropping but also the choice of cocktails makes this place Top of the TOP! I would really recommend popping in, even if you aren’t staying at Lindos Blu. I especially loved their signature G+T that is changing colour from purple to red. What a bliss.
The food is also distinguished, we dined at Smeraldo restaurant, and the experience was a TOP. I am a pescatarian, so I can assure you the veggie and fish options are 10/10!

The brand cares a lot about ethical production, nature and cherishes the environment. Are you after something unique, timeless, versatile and also ethically made? Check this brand out!
Apart from the private pools and a large infinity pool at the SPA level, Lindos Blu has an amazing private beach located just outside the hotel, at the very bottom! You can actually get there with… a lift! Here you will find spacious bali beds, sunbeds and a lovely Mefisto bar. The beach is really intimate and it would never ever get crowded.
My honest opinion? I think this hotel is worth every cent spend on it, especially when it comes to honeymoons. Lindos Blu is known for making their guests feel really special and they are always open for new requests and ideas.
