Amorgos (Greek: Αμοργüς) is the easternmost island of the Greek Cyclades island group. Also known as Yperia, Patagy, or Platagy, Pagali, Psichia and Karkisia... part of the island is named Aspis, where the ancient temple of the goddess Aphrodite stood.

  

The spectacular monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa is situated on the cliff side, northeast of Chora. It was built early in the second millennium in order to protect a religious icon, dated the year 812, from intruders. The icon is on public display inside the monastery.

 

The Aegialis Hotel & Spa is located in the north of Amorgos Island, near the Port of Aegiali. Standing on a hillside overlooking the bay of Aegiali, the hotel offers breathtaking views into the deep blue of the Aegean & to the surrounding islands of Nikouria (Uninhabited), Donousa & Koufounisia. Between the main beach of Aegiali & the beach of Levroso, The Aegialis Hotel is a maximum 10 minute walk from the crystal clear waters & golden sands of Aegiali bay. The overall location of the hotel is so unique it will amaze any visitor at first sight!

About The Aegialis Hotel & Spa

 


As the hotel is a kilometer away from the Aegiali port it makes it a pleasant walk if you choose to take a stroll to the town, or a two minutes drive with a car. A bus stop is conveniently located outside of the hotel making the transportation of guests easy. Taxi cabs are available so you don't necessarily need any wheels of your own, however scooters and cars are available to rent. 


Amorgos is a remarkably unspoiled island at the south Eastern edge of the Cycladic group. It is an island where traditional customs are still inextricably interwoven into a landscape as rich in its beauty as in its history.

 

 

About The Owners

 

Irene and Nikitas Giannakopoulou, the owners of Aegialis Hotel & Spa are both from Amorgos and grew up there. Irene’s father was one of the first to build rooms to rent when Amorgos was still totally isolated and he passed on  his passion for tourism to her. After a stay of a few years in America, Irene and Nikitas decided to go back to their beloved island and to realize their dream: promote the beauty of Amorgos and open a hotel that combines both traditional amorgian architecture and spirit in a simple but elegant setting.

 

 

When the road to Tholaria village started being built, Nikitas and Irene found the perfect spot and seized the opportunity.  After two years of difficult work, The Aegialis Hotel opened in 1992. In 2008, The Aegialis Hotel redeveloped itself and opened the biggest thalassotherapy centre of the Cyclades, “The Lalon Idor Thalasso Spa & Beauty Centre”.
