Marriott is bringing its high-end Luxury Collection brand to the Greek island of Patmos next year.

Here’s what you need to know about this upcoming resort!

Hotel Will Be the Only Luxury Resort on Patmos Island

Patmos Aktis, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa in Greece, will have just 56 guest rooms, suites, and villas and is the conversion of the existing Patmos Aktis Suites & Spa hotel.

The resort is expected to feature a traditional Greek beachfront taverna and a spa, and nearby amenities will include hiking trails, sailing, and picnics on the beach.

Slated to open for guests in the summer of 2024 (with additional rooms opening in 2025), the resort is expected to be the only luxury offering on Patmos, an island in the Aegean Sea with just 3,000 residents.

In announcing the resort, Marriott called Greece an “extremely desirable leisure destination” for its customers.

“Bringing The Luxury Collection to the idyllic island of Patmos on the Dodecanese further cements the brand’s leadership in luxury hospitality while providing our guests access to a captivating and relatively undiscovered destination to experience authentic Greece,” said Helen Leighton, Vice President of Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, at Marriott.

Bottom Line:

The Luxury Collection is one of Marriott’s most exclusive brands under the “Luxury” umbrella, including the EDITION, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, JW Marriott, and W brands. You’ll find more than 100 hotels and resorts in 35+ countries.

Booking Marriott Bonvoy Hotels in Greece

Unfortunately, Patmos Aktis won’t open for guests until next year. However, Marriott has a robust portfolio throughout Greece, with nearly 3 dozen hotels available.

These include high-end options, such as the Cosme, a Luxury Collection Resort, Paros (starting at $640 or 96,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for dates next June), and the W Costa Navarino (starting at $330 or 73,000 points).

Fortunately, earning Marriott Bonvoy points is incredibly easy, even if you aren’t a loyalist. Both American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio and, on occasion, will offer transfer bonuses. Marriott offers several co-branded credit cards with massive welcome bonuses and some form of elite status.

Final Thoughts

While Marriott has no shortage of high-end hotels in Greece — including several Luxury Collection resorts — this will be the brand’s first in Patmos, which is excellent news for travelers visiting the island. While we wait for the resort to finish its conversion, make sure to check out Marriott’s other properties in Greece!
