Origin Hotel and Apartments
The Origin Apartments keeps things simple. There’s an outdoor pool surrounded by loungers, rooms with handy kitchenettes and a snack bar to help keep guests ticking over.
The pool is dressed for summer thanks to canary-yellow parasols and electric-blue loungers. Pull up a stool at the bar and you can order draught beers, local wines and cocktails. There’s also a balcony above the bar that’s set up for games, with three tables for pool and one for table football.
Inside, there’s a lobby bar for a pre-dinner drink or a nightcap.
Overview of Kardamena
For a small island, there’s plenty to see and do on a holiday to Kos. The 40-kilometre-long coastline is bursting with activities and attractions.
While small resorts focus on rest and relaxation, larger spots like Kos Town are more history-focused, with Roman ruins and a 15th-century castle.
The Origin Hotel and Apartments is in Kardamena, where nightlife is the main attraction. Whether you’re looking to relax, uncover history, get the adrenaline pumping or party the night away, there’s a resort for you in Kos.
Things to do in Kos
The central location of the Origin Hotel and Apartments means that you’re only a whisker away from Kardamena’s sandy beach and lively promenade.
When you look across the street from the hotel, you’ll see a traditional domed church. Take a five-minute stroll to the marina and things turn more modern, with beach shacks, restaurants and bars cropping up.
Known as Kos’ party central, the volume really turns up after dark in Kardamena. Bar Street is where most of the fun kicks off, but as the action winds down, head to the clubs on the harbour that stay open until the sun comes back up.
Kos really is a destination that packs it all in. You’ll want to book to return before you’ve even boarded the plane home.
