Stay maybe influenced by rain 5 days out if 7. The type of hotel with seperate blocks meant a drenching as soon as you stepped out of room and our room was dark cold and gloomy. Pool area lovely but hardly got a chance to use it and plagued with wasps. Wasps too at breakfast if eating outside. Pretty place... More

We visited here last summer for the day. I contacted the hotel and said we'd like to come over for lunch and use the facilities. The staff were all super lovely. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Just the right side of trendy. Amazing spot and facilities. We had a brilliant day of lazing by the pool, a great lunch, swimming... More

We stayed at Hotel Emelisse for the second time in September and had a fantastic time. The customer service and high standards are out of this world and the staff will do anything to make sure you are having a great holiday.

It's faultless: the beautiful location; the decor which is just right; the atmosphere...feels like a holiday version of the Groucho club; the brilliant food; the perfect service. I could go on and on! Has tennis, squash, and a very good gym. My ONLY gripe is the squash court which isn't properly lit. However the Emelisse is brilliant.

We were in the Emelisse Art Hotel with Hellenic Healthy Holidays in September. We could not have a better holiday anywhere else in the world. The work out options are endless ( tennis, squash, gym , bicycles, hikes etc etc) and the equipment is of a high standard. The views from the pool and restaurant are stunning. Harris, the owner...

Just returned from a short break at the hotel,- ( I couldn't agree less with the previous & very negative reviewer comments "from the island!" ...) the staff, each and every one were 5*- reception/restaurants/bar/house keeping/drivers all were pleasant, efficient, welcoming and did a fantastic job. It may be a bit expensive by some measure, what you get in return... More

Eventhough, I live in the island, we stayed at this hotel for a weekend. Well, its definetely not five star. The receptionist is rude, the rooms, average looking, the food, okay. Definetely over priced, and as far as the staff are concerned the only person that had manners, was the driver, who took us into town, and that I reckon... More

What a gem! The Emelisse is a very special place. Architecturally designed to appear like a cluster of hilltop villas guests have all the best bits of a five star hotel: gym, spa, tennis, squash, great dining; with the best bits of a boutique hotel: lots of different chill-out areas and pools. Harris, the owner, is a considerate and generous... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
THE HOTELSituated above Emplisis bay overlooking a unique painting of nature, this resort is hidden out of sight, among cedars and cypress trees. From an architect’s point of view a finely tuned pallet of multicultural influence creates an environment of high aesthetics and post-modern design. Space consultant Sophocles Maraveyas has combined an ambience of serenity with original pieces of furniture and local architecture elements. Note that this is the only establishment in Greece to use teak wood items to furnish rooms, all painted in subtle pale shades, and decorated with pictures from artwork photographer Tatiana Karapanagioti, highlighted by the cleverly hidden support lights.HOTEL LOCATIONHotel is located above Emplisis bay, close to the picturesque port and fishing village of Fiskardo, which is within close proximity; it will take not more than 15 minutes to reach, walking distance.
