Located in a lovely rural setting with views of the mountains, the Zeus Hotel is comfortable and relaxing. It’s incredibly popular with anyone looking for peace, quiet and traditional Greek hospitality.
The highlight of the hotel is the large swimming pool that comes with a section for children. Whether you’re looking to catch some rays or cool off, this is the place to be. It’s a real sun trap, but parasols provide shade and a snack bar offers drinks.
Breakfasts here are buffet affairs that set you up for the day. In the evening, the nearest restaurants are only a short stroll away and the hotel has a lounge bar that’s perfect for a nightcap.
Overview of Kefalos
The 40-kilometre-long island of Kos is bursting at the seams with activities and attractions. During the day, the numerous beaches that line the coast are the places to be. All of them offer a wide variety of water sports that can get the blood pumping. If you’d rather explore the island, boat tours are available, too.
Inland, the towns are packed with historic monuments perfect for history lovers. From the Castle of Neratzia by Kos Town to the Antimachia Castle near Kardamena, there’s plenty to explore. That’s before we’ve even mentioned Tree of Hippocrates, the Roman Odeon, and several excavation sites.
Then, as day turns to night, the smaller towns offer quiet bars and tavernas while Kos Town and Kardamena provide wild nightclubs and karaoke bars. When you head on a holiday to Kos, expect to find an island small enough to explore but one that provides 24 hours of fun every day.
Things to do in Kos
The Zeus Hotel is just over a kilometre away from the centre of Kefalos. The old town’s cobbled streets here are home to several historic buildings, including an early Christian basilica. These ruins are displayed across a rocky setting near the seaside and make for a great day trip for any history buffs.
If you’re looking to get the adrenaline pumping, head to Paradise Beach where you can hire peddle boats, jet skis and even learn how to water ski.
Although it’s a small resort, Kefalos still packs a punch and it’s home to a large array of restaurants and traditional tavernas. In the evening, head to the seafront for international options or the old town where you’ll find souvlaki, moussaka, and Greek salads.
Exploring the rest of the island is easy, too. Kos Town is only 40 minutes away and buses regularly leave from the centre of Kefalos. If you’d prefer somewhere closer to home, Kardamena is only a 20-minute journey away.
Kos really is a destination that packs it all in. When you stay at the Zeus Hotel, you can spend your holiday exploring historic structures, enjoying the lively nightlife and skimming across the waters. No two days are ever the same.
