The stunning island of Antiparos is set to welcome its first luxury hotel. Conceived as a wellness and lifestyle resort, The Rooster is designed with simple aesthetic luxury in mind; also providing a holistic experience for a rejuvenating escape.
Nestled between the sandy, unspoiled beaches of the Aegean coastline and the dramatic landscape of the Cyclades, The Rooster celebrates privacy in complete harmony with nature. It’s an ideal location for detoxing and being away from crowds; as it’s set on one of the most secluded and exclusive islands in Greece. Endowed with sheer natural beauty, golden sandy beaches, and a verdurous landscape full of cedar trees, this island remains unspoiled.
Style & Character
Boasting an unrivalled combination of splendour with respect to the environment and authenticity of Greek island life, this new hotel is inspired by the raw natural charm and the rustic environment- creating a tranquil atmosphere. Conceived by founder and owner Athanasia Comninos as a wellness resort- with an eye toward sustainability and harmony with the local community- the understated luxury combined with simplicity and comfort are leading values of the design philosophy. The interiors feature spacious and elegant indoor areas, reflecting a casual (yet chic) style with an eclectic feel. Wood, marble, and cotton, all in a variety of a naturally soothing palette prevail, while an inventive combination of textures and patterns create a feeling of spiritual calmness.
The Rooster boasts 17 independent houses, that are warm and inviting. Each one has its own character and they come in four different layouts; all include ample space, private gardens, outdoor showers, and a breathtaking view of the sea and the surrounding landscape. A freestanding farmhouse, located at The Rooster’s organic farm (only a few minutes away from the main property) offers guests three bedrooms and a spacious living area. Here you can dine outdoors on the spacious patio or simply savour the view of the farm while lazing around on the chic outdoor furnishings.
Food & Drink
The Rooster offers guests a variety of bespoke dining options and experiences; including a private chef, a personalised daily fresh breakfast, and a private dinner at the farm’s exclusive restaurant. You can choose from the main eatery which features a variety of Greek and international dishes; freshly made using hand-picked garden produce. For a more casual meal, The Secret Gem is the perfect place to have a light lunch or early dinner. And for some drinks head to The Bar and enjoy your favourite beverage, while admiring unparalleled views of the sea and the magical sunset of the island.
Enjoy the furnished terraces, sun decks, freshwater pools, and outdoor showers, all overlooking landscaped gardens or the Aegean Sea. Personal yoga sessions or wellness coaching is also available and Farmhouse guests have complimentary access to all the hotel’s facilities.
Guests from the houses can also visit the Organic farm and learn about traditional farming techniques; and pick seasonal vegetables and herbs to make their own dishes. Experience outdoor cooking in the open air by a local chef and enjoy the creations with friends and family.
With sustainability and mindfulness at the core of all its services, this hotel is ideal for anyone looking for a “slow living” experience. It’s also perfect for anyone looking to really enjoy the island, as The Rooster is ideally placed to explore the region’s rich culture, cuisine, and natural attractions. From families and couples to groups of friends and solo travellers; from here, you can easily visit the ancient sanctuary Despotiko ruins, take a tour to the caves of the island, wander around the enchanting Antiparos castle, enjoy the Sunset at Sifneiko Beach (as you dance the night away) and stay awake for the sunrise (it’s a must).
