Fodor's Expert Review Domotel Xenia Volos
1 Plastira St., Volos, Thessaly, Greece
The summer residence of the gods, according to Greek myth, is now home to one of the city's top hotels, fully renovated to five-star standard in 2005, sited just east of the marina. Rooms come with mountain, city, or sea views, and a relatively demure design scheme that doesn't try to compete with the deep blue water outside—in fact, it accentuates it with blue bed clothes, curtains, and furnishings on a sand-colored wood floor. The award-winning Dreamway Spa has a hydrotonic pool that includes special therapies for specific parts of the body. The hotel's rooftop garden, Yacht Club, is a hot spot for the local well-to-do.
