RHODES, Greece — Today Lindian Village Beach Resort Rhodes, Curio Collection by Hilton opens its doors to guests. Located near the picturesque town of Lindos, the 188-room hotel is the latest addition to Curio Collection by Hilton’s growing portfolio and boasts stunning views of the Aegean Sea.
Lindian Village Beach Resort Rhodes features 188 spacious rooms and suites within a welcoming minimal ‘boho’ design, exuding refined elegance. Earthy tones and natural textures create a harmonious flow between the stunning surrounding nature and the relaxed indoor atmosphere. Each suite comes with either a private pool, veranda, or Jacuzzi, for an added touch of luxury. Inspired by the nearby Butterfly Valley, the hotel design pays homage to the theme of “metamorphosis” and the vibrant pattern of Panaxia Quadripunctaria, commonly referenced as the jersey tiger moth.
