Parīlio Hotel, the latest project of Design HotelsTM Originals Kalia and Antonis Eliopoulos, is an ode to the Aegean Sea & Light. Parīlio’s strong holistic look and feel make for a gloriously poetic retreat in full harmony with the surrounding sea and natural rocks. The Cycladic inspiration and influences are reflected throughout the hotel, the name of which is derived from ‘Paros’ and the Greek word for the sun ‘ilios’.
The 33-suite retreat is characterized by the island’s distinctive architecture and defined by a soothing, tonal color palette and natural materials, creating cathartic spaces full of light and luxurious comfort for each visitor. Its interiors are enhanced by contemporary Greek design pieces that sit alongside objets d’art by leading European designers, while striking ceramics sourced from an innovative North African studio serve to inspire and provoke conversation.
Parīlio is conveniently located on the island’s northeastern coast, between stunning Kolympithres beach and the jewel town of Naoussa. If you’re visiting Paros for its sublimely slow-paced way of living, you can choose between the hotel’s pool and sun-drenched deck to soak up the parian sun or unwind in the on-site Asian Spa.
