Thassos “the Emerald Island” of the Aegean Sea has, apart from its natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the locals, some excellent accommodation options to offer.
In the “jungle” of the internet a visitor can find hundreds of hotels, villas, apartments, studios and rooms of all price ranges and to suit all tastes. Accommodation units can be found not only in the capital Limenas (Thassos Town) but almost in all resorts. Some of the most popular places to stay in Thassos are Potos, Limenaria, Golden Beach, Skala Potamia, Limenas, Skala Rachoni and Skala Prinos.
Each location has its own beauty and differs from the others in terms of prices, infrastructures, night life, nearby activities and tranquility. For example while Potos is popular among young travellers or families with teenagers for its vibrant night life, Golden Beach is appealing for families and couples due to its fine shallow beach.
Furthermore, the type of accommodation varies as well. Visitors can find anything from luxury resorts, small family run guest houses/hotels to traditional cottage houses and cosy rooms. It’s a fact that many of them have been newly built or recently renovated – with the top selections, of course, having seafront locations.
Although Thassos is not famed for its luxury properties, the island has some excellent five – star hotels on offer which can satisfy even the most demanding visitor.
Here we have listed the Top luxury hotels in Thassos based on the latest guest reviews from the best known internet portals like Google and TripAdvisor.
