Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel & Spa | The décor is ultra-modern overall, though a healthy rosemary hedge flanking the entryway, and the water-feature above a floral parterre, soften the stark Bauhaus lines of the exterior. The only local member of the global Small Luxury Hotels chain, Aqua Blu Boutique Hotel Spa combines cutting-edge design values with notable service, creative cooking, an appealing spa and a secluded but not inconvenient seaside location. | Starting at $200

Grecotel Kos Imperial | A luxury, if pleasantly old-fashioned, resort on the Psalídi strip, with mature gardens, good food and a sumptuous, naturally lit spa. Families are actively catered for, and a choice of swimming pools and water sports franchise compensate for a mediocre beach. Mature gardens are alluring, especially numerous palm trees which have escaped destruction by Greece’s epidemic of introduced red palm weevils. | Starting at $150

Kos Aktis Art Hotel |  Kos Town’s premier boutique hotel offers all Aegean-view units, a popular waterside restaurant and extra facilities at a nearby affiliate. It occupies a listed, late-1950s structure, once one of the Xenia accommodation chain, which being first on the scene snaffled all the best locations. Radically updated Bauhaus. Kos Aktis Art began life as one of the Xenia hotel chain, mostly designed by prominent architect Aris Konstantinidis after 1957. This listed structure sports a predominantly grey, beige and charcoal palette. Units need some TLC however. Tired furniture (dark wood veneer desk/closet, ochre upholstery) feels ready for updating. | Starting at $120

Panoramic sea views with docked schooner from balcony at Kos Aktis Art Hotel, Kos

Kos Aktis Art Hotel | Kos Aktis Art Hotel is a boutique design destination in the heart of the island’s capital, Kos Town. Extensive use of glass creates a light, airy feel throughout the hotel, while sea views come with every room. Connecting visitors with the natural world is one of the key focuses of the design, and it works: guests can see the sea from almost any spot in the hotel. The aptly named H20 restaurant serves a delicious Greek breakfast of locally sourced ingredients, and there’s no better start to the day than a delicious local cheese accompanied by sweet Kos tomatoes and pure island honey. At night, the bright and modern design of the restaurant serves as a lively spot to enjoy sea views with a cocktail in hand. | Starting at $100
