Fodor's Expert Review Rastoni

Dimitriou Petriti 31, Aegina Town, Aegina, 18010, Greece Fodor's Choice

Quiet and secluded, this boutique hotel's peaceful quality is heightened by the landscaped mature Mediterranean garden filled with aromatic herbs, wild flowers, and pistachio trees. Wood pergolas, benches, and rattan armchairs, where you can curl up with a book or just spend the day staring out to sea, are inconspicuously placed throughout. Guest rooms have a sleek, minimalist feel; a sense of space and reliance on Asian wood trims and furniture adds to the Zen appeal. Many of them are designed to cater to families (special rates apply). The views from Rastoni are what people visit Greece for, a solitary ancient column of the temple of Apollo standing proudly, white against the backdrop of the sparkling blues of sea and sky. The latest attraction is the oldest: the owners have lovingly preserved the ancient ruins that came to light during construction in the lobby.
