The island’s spiritual side is best appreciated from the top of Chora, the Heritage Listed town that St John used as his headquarters. From here, the seascape of glistening blue water and bobbing sailboats is spectacular, as is the eerie aura of his cave, where the Book of Revelation was written. Luxury hotels like the beachside Patmos Aktis Suites and Spa have a modern style, while simpler options like Petra Hotel and Suites are also in the town of Grikos.

3. Acqua Blu Boutique

Acqua Blu Boutique is an adult only hotel with a spa and a beach in the northern lighthouse peninsula of Kos harbor. This proud member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World is a luxurious retreat with a state-of-the-art spa.

The 53 suites feature oak floors and contemporary furnishings in chalky earth tones, with floor-to-ceiling windows and furnished balconies and terraces. All have 40-inch flat-screen TVs, green energy heating/cooling systems and free Wi-Fi. Minibars, and tea and coffeemaking facilities are also available. Built-in work desks and vanity mirrors separate the open bathrooms from bedrooms.

The hotel offers a variety of dining options, including the on-site Cuvee Restaurant. In-room dining is possible as well. Guests can enjoy an energizing cup of quality coffee at the in-house cafe. Other hotel amenities include a fitness center and pool bar.

4. Blue Bay

Despite its sinister sobriquet as the ‘Island of the Apocalypse’, Patmos is a heavenly Greek retreat. Tranquil village tavernas, seascapes of that deep nautical blue that only the Aegean has, goat trails winding through burnt, timeless landscapes, scented clouds of jasmine and wild thyme.

Skala’s stylish harbour town is where most travellers stay, and it has a good range of hotels. More remote options, like the serene little resort 9 Muses Exclusive Apartments, also appeal to people after a more elemental Greek Island experience.

Few hotels can match Petra Hotel’s sublime views over Grikos Bay, and its rooms are perfectly positioned to appreciate them. The hotel has a refined air, with room decor inspired by famous Greek creatives and service that’s five-star all the way. It’s also well placed for exploring the island on foot.

5. Captain’S House

In the heart of Provincetown on a quiet lane you will find one of Cape Cod’s finest bed and breakfast inns. The Captain’s House offers quality and affordable accommodations for all types of travelers. This is a place where you will be greeted by a warm friendly staff that will make your stay here unforgettable.

The most spiritual of the Dodecanese islands, Patmos draws a wide clientele from all over the world, from back packers to David Bowie (who attested to its bewitching qualities). There’s an unspoilt charm in the main town of Skala where medieval homes crowd around twisting lanes designed to foil pirates. The 11th-century Monastery of St John dominates the hilltop. It houses the cave where St John had visions for the Book of Revelations. Luxury hotels, like the simple Petra Hotel and Suites and the stylish Aktis Suites and Spa, offer divine views and soothing services.

6. Mistral-Patmos

A labor-of-love for husband-and-wife team Christos and Eirini, Mistral-Patmos offers home-style stone villas with one or two bedrooms and blissful Aegean views. Splash out on a villa with a private sea-view pool and you’ll have a holiday like no other.

Unlike the more accessible Idyllic Islands, Patmos’s villages still retain their traditional charm. Wander around Grikos’ twisting lanes and you’ll see that even in peak season the town feels serene and out of the way.

Enjoy views of Grikos Bay and bobbing sailboats from your hotel terrace, where in-room art by Greek creatives adds to the refined feel. At the hotel’s restaurant, you can dine on stuffed vine leaves and herb-infused spit roasts. Alternatively, head to a village taverna for some simple fare.

7. Chris Skala

Known as the ‘Island of the Apocalypse’, Patmos draws in visitors from all sorts of backgrounds. It’s not just the beauty of its emerald bays and verdant hills that makes this Dodecanese island so special, but also its aura. The 11th Century Monastery of St John soars over the gleaming white houses in Chora, the island’s main town, and there’s an almost sinister aura surrounding the cave where it is said that St John wrote his Book of Revelations.

Located a short walk from Grikos Beach, Chris Skala features accommodations with free private parking and a terrace. Guests can enjoy the on-site bar. This luxury hotel is also suitable for families. The rooms have a kitchenette with an oven and microwave. A flat-screen TV is available. The bathrooms feature a shower and bath. Guests can also relax in the spa and wellness area.

8. Patmos Maria Studios Skala

This guest house in Skala is praised by guests for its clean, comfortable rooms, and friendly staff. It offers an ideal location near the port and the center of town with easy access to all amenities. The breakfast is also highly rated with guests appreciating the quality, variety and service. The hotel also pays special attention to COVID-19 safety measures, which is a big plus.

Skala Maria Studios features air-conditioned accommodation with a terrace and garden. All units have a kitchenette and a private bathroom with shower. A flat-screen TV is provided. Some units have a balcony or patio with sea views. Zoodochos Pigi Monastery, Evaggelismos Monastery and Monastery of Agios Ioannis Theologos are within a short car ride from the guest house.

9. Asteri

The single storey villa is fully equipped and has its own individual 40sqm pool (kids section) and stone built Bbq area. It has its own private parking lot and is very well protected from noise of cars and neighbors.

With a stay at Asteri, you’ll be close to Ornos Beach and Windmills of Mykonos. Featured amenities include concierge services, complimentary wireless Internet access, and a seasonal outdoor pool. Asteri has 18 air-conditioned rooms with refrigerators and coffee/tea makers. Rooms have private furnished balconies or patios.

10. Meltemi

Located on Perissa’s main road, Meltemi offers an upscale-casual family section (the Village) and adults-only luxury wing (the Excelsior). Suites come with private pools or spa baths, and all have balcony or patio views. A mini market sells wine, groceries, and beach gear.

The hotel’s cocktail bar is one of the friendliest and most popular in town, and it serves food as well. A karaoke lounge is open late.

Strong Meltemi winds can be tough on swimmers, but swimming is still possible if you pick a rocky or pebbly beach and stay away from red-flagged areas. Explore Chora, the capital of Mykonos, or take advantage of other island activities that don’t suffer from this wind. It’s also a great destination for those who enjoy windsurfing or sailing. On especially intense days, Meltemi can reach 7 or 8 on the Beaufort scale.
