Hotel Petra Review

One of Greece's truly special retreats sits high above Girkos bay south of Skala and provides a luxurious yet informal getaway, with large and sumptuous guest quarters, delightful outdoor lounges, a welcoming pool, and soothing sea views. Guest rooms are beautifully appointed with local antiques and art as well as built-in divans and other touches of a distinct island style. Most have sitting areas and large and supremely equipped baths, as well as sea-facing terraces. A lavish breakfast is served on a large veranda that serves as lobby, dining room, and gathering spot, and where a member of the gracious Stergiou clan is usually on hand to dispense advice about enjoying the island. The Petra also offers a luxurious villa in Chora.
