Flexible stays at White Orchid Hotel… We are delighted to be offering flexible stays in selected rooms at White Orchid. Published prices are for 7 and 14-night durations on fixed departure dates only.

‘Blissful’… ‘Wonderful’… ‘Totally relaxing’… The intimate White Orchid is an Adult Only Hotel that invites superlatives. On the edge of Sivota, this little gem boasts one of the most stunning views in our entire Greece portfolio, each of its eight suites overlooking the sparkling Ionian Sea, where dolphins bob up above the blue and Paxos and Corfu float like shadows in the distance.

Expanses of glass panelling maximise the light and make the most of those spectacular views, whilst the drifting scent of jasmine, bay and bougainvillea enhances the sense of calm that begins each morning in your sumptuous bedroom with its state-of-the-art shower.

There is a large infinity pool some 12 metres in length where you can float away on the view and, just a few minutes' stroll away, is a beautiful secluded cove known only to the locals. It’s ideal for an early morning swim before a delicious breakfast on the hotel terrace, sea views sweetened with local honey.

Just a five-minute drive takes you into the heart of spirited Sivota, where you can embark on a boating adventure or sample fresh fish in a taverna by the water’s edge. There are more delightful beaches all a short drive away and, for explorers and walkers, the mountains of Zagoria beckon with the magnificent hanging monasteries of Meteora beyond.

Throughout your stay, you’ll be looked after by our local hotel managers who provide our excellent concierge service. They’re passionate about this beautiful corner of Greece, so if you need ideas for inspirational day trips or an excursion or restaurant booked, they can help.

A stay at the White Orchid on the Greek mainland can be combined with a week in Paxos, where you’ll find Purple Apricot Hotel. With its unique blend of bohemian chic and exceptional service, it’s another Adult Only Hotel experience that gives you the time and space to exhale.
