Ammos style is laid-back, fun, and unassumingly cool. The whitewashed typical Greek island exteriors hide behind their blue doors a wicked collection of contemporary design. A self-proclaimed design junky, owner Nikos Tsepetis, has a knack for using unusual juxtapositions in his decorating. He single-handedly curates every detail here-from the wild flowers bouquets to the eye-candy collection of mismatched chairs and the art pieces scattered around the hotel.

For summer 2018, good old Nikos has a few aces up his sleeve: new chairs (as always), higher balcony doors (from Swiss Vitrocsa) to extend the views, bespoke wooden shutters, pure wool curtains (from Danish Kvadrat), tv-free environment (unless you ask for it:-) and one of the most comfortable beds in the world (for the deluxe sea view studios), among other surprises.
