Philosophy & Goals
With respect and vision
When Dimitris and Anna Petridena envisioned Pylaia Boutique Hotel & Spa, they did not intend to simply create another hotel. Inspired by the top tourist destinations of the country, they decided to create something different, a unique chic hotel with excellent service, capable of advertising Astypalaia as an international destination.
The construction proved to be a demanding challenge but the results speak for themselves: a miniature of the island's Chora, with its small paved streets, whitewashed buildings and wooden canopies with sailcloth that look like windmills, tied closely to the architecture of Astypalaia, but at the same time unique and fresh. Meanwhile, special care was given to the decoration and furnishing of the interior spaces and rooms, by choosing to cooperate with leading companies in the field of lighting, mattresses and furniture.
At the highest point, like a castle, stands the Plori Bar Restaurant, an upscale Mediterranean cuisine restaurant, one of a kind for Astypalaia, which features local and Greek cuisine with a creative touch. At the same space, in the morning, you can try our Greek breakfast, a true feast of flavors from our island, selected from traditional recipes in cooperation with the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels. Besides, serving with devotion the effort to preserve and promote the traditional flavors, Petridenas family created the Eliana Traditional Products bakery in 2007, which bakes, packs and exports these exact flavors to Greece and worldwide.
The Spa, fully renovated in 2015, with highly trained staff and a variety of services and treatments continues our effort for ever improving services. The hotel also features a fitness room, and an outdoor pool, while a conference room will soon be completed. Furthermore, aiming on the promotion of Greek wine, a real wine cellar was created, with dozens of labels from all over the country and a few selected ones from abroad.
The main goal is and remains, the promotion of Astypalaia as a destination, and in this direction, Pylaia Boutique & Spa will continue to create and invest. Carrying the love for the island from Petridenas family to the staff and finally our guests we aim to become a reference point for the island and the local community, supporting events and actions in this direction.
