Cove Paros: Inspired gastronomy and fine drinking by Gikas Xenakis and Vasilis Kyritsis

Cove Paros, a haven of tranquility and Cycladic beauty, is about to open its doors in June 2021. After a demanding year for the tourism sector, the hotel is ready to welcome visitors once again to one of the most beautiful islands in the Aegean.

Paros is being reintroduced as a favourite summer destination thanks to its latest addition: Cove Paros. Nestled just a stone’s throw away from Naoussa, the beating heart of the island, this boutique hotel blends minimalist aesthetics with a distinct Aegean aura, the kind that ex-udes out towards visitors upon the first moment of their arrival. The sea air, the magnificent view of the Aegean, the natural calm and a sense of privacy all harmonise perfectly; accented by the world-class services and facilities of Cove Paros, located on the enchanting Agioi Anargyroi Beach. The hotel’s organised beach is open to guests, becoming a sun-soaked back-drop for all those who wish to spend their days swimming in the crystal waters of Paros.

Created with Cycladic elements and earthy tones, the design of Cove Paros was curated by the architectural firm eDje. Clean lines, natural materials and fine details harmonise with the surrounding environment, creating the ultimate refuge for relaxation. These minimalist aesthetics are showcased throughout the hotel’s 45 suites, set against the backdrop of a beautiful seascape. With a cosmopolitan character and high-end services, Cove Paros guarantees an unforgettable holiday experience.

A prime example of what’s to be expected is the Cove Signature Signature - a sublime series of five suites with innovative aesthetics and elegant facilities. The great outdoors are a continuation of the suites’ interiors, creating an atmosphere of absolute privacy where guests are one with the Earth, on the idyllic beach. The suites come complete with private swimming pools, ideal for family holidays or an escape to a stylish sanctuary just a stone’s throw from Naoussa.

The gastronomic concept of the hotel has been curated by Gikas Xenankis, a pioneer of contemporary Greek cuisine, awardee of Golden Caps and Greek Cuisine Awards as chef at Aleria, and Cuisinier de l’ année for 2020 according to the Gault & Millau gastronomic guide. This summer Xenakis anchors in Naoussa, introducing Rada restaurant to Cove Paros as a daring redefinition of the Cycladic gastronomic tradition. With a strong emphasis on pure produce and seasonal ingredients, Rada is a tribute to the natural bounties of the Cyclades, located on the beach and taking guests on a journey of summer tastes, both during the noon and in the evening! Docking in Paros to recharge your evening entertainment is Vassilis Kyritsis, co-owner and bartender of our Athenian favourite The Clumsies. A rare and special guest from the Greek and international fine drinking scene, Kyritsis promises an experience like no other, fuelled with a custom-made menu featuring signature cocktails, premium spirits, homemade blends, virgin cocktails and refreshing juices. The inspiring Cy-cladic sunset and the sounds of summer are bound to make each moment unforgettable.
