A New Greek Formula Takes Hold in the Cyclades

LuxurIos Island Experience Delivers Luxury Travel With Meaning

IOS ISLAND, GREECE -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- Ecoresort travel company, LuxurIos Island Experience, announced today the opening of their new property on Ios Island in the Cyclades, Agalia Suites, a 14-room sustainably designed boutique hotel next to the whitewashed traditional village of Chora, along with Pathos Lounge, an outdoor retreat overlooking the Aegean Sea that welcomes day visitors by blending nature and nurture seamlessly together. Both represent a new approach to travel in Greece, mixing modern art and luxury to embrace cultural and natural heritage based on a commitment to sustainable tourism. Think centuries-old olive trees and private gardens with plush pillows amid traditional Cycladic architecture, while savoring the best Greek wines with dishes made from locally grown and freshly prepared ingredients. Call it a new Greek formula for travel that embraces sense of place and celebrates the beauty of Greece, while protecting it for future generations.

"Over the last few decades, we have spent our summers exploring the beautiful beaches and wild nature of the Cyclades Islands, only to see many of our favorite places overcome by mass tourism development. We are committed to protecting Ios from that fate," says Vassiliki Perridou, President of LuxurIos Island Experience.

With more than 5,000 acres of stunning private island landscape, including wild mountains and valleys, along with 10 private beaches that are among the most beautiful in the entire Aegean, guests who book their holidays with LuxurIos Island Experiences will discover a Greece free from tourist crowds.

"We have made a conscious decision to build on only 1% of our land on Ios, leaving the rest to remain part of nature to help ensure that future generations will also be able to enjoy the island's wild beauty and magnificent beaches," adds Perridou.

Overlooking the sparkling sea, Agalia Suites boutique hotel has a large, chemical-free swimming pool and 14 individually designed artistic suites. Awarded with 4 Keys for its excellent facilities and services, this stylish hotel brings together luxury and authenticity, and its ideal location creates the perfect setting for exploring the nearby town of Chora, setting out on daily adventures to find the hidden coves and pristine beaches dotting the island, and returning to watch the sunset in the comfortable ambiance of Pathos Lounge. A stay at Agalia is all about embracing the laidback lifestyle of Ios and enjoying the high quality guest services of LuxurIos Island Experience.

With LuxurIos Island Experience's private guides, you can explore the island's history and culture while enjoying its majestic landscapes. A beach barbeque with local fishermen delivering their catch right from the water? Just ask. A full moon dinner on the sands for you and your loved one? Of course. A hike into the mountains? LuxurIos will take you. This is Greece travel as it was meant to be -- pure, inspiring and beautiful.

About LuxurIos Island Experience: LuxurIos Island Experience is committed to providing outstanding guest services based upon truly unique and authentic holidays on Ios Island. We believe that when planned and managed well, tourism can be a powerful force for protecting natural and cultural heritage. Our aim is to use a low-impact, environmentally sensible approach to sustainably develop the land so that Ios' natural beauty, unspoiled beaches, and Greek island cultural heritage continues to thrive for locals and visitors alike. Our mission -- "We do not have to damage the earth to accomplish our dreams" -- means that we source locally as much as we can, including building with local materials, serving local foods in our restaurants, and employing local people. At Agalia Suites, we offer discerning travelers a combination of international luxury and local authenticity, just a few minutes' drive from the historic town of Chora. Tradition blends with modern art, and global cuisine meets Greek culinary heritage, set against the bright views of the Aegean Sea. Wind of Dreams Estate, with its private beach lounge, is nestled discreetly between wild mountains on a golden sand beach facing the crystalline sea, and offers the ultimate in exclusivity and tranquility, with outstanding customized personalized service.
