Kos Town is an effortless bohemian paradise, where you’ll spend the daytime soaking up the culture, and immersing yourself in the vibrant nightlife when the sun sets. Our gorgeous range of hotels in Kos Town will leave you spoilt for choice, so there’s certainly something for everyone.
It’s a true haven nestled in the southeast of the Aegean Sea, and the island enjoys a gorgeous summer climate. Plan your break in Kos between June and September to make the most of the sunshine, lazing by the beach or at your stunning hotel pool with the bar only a stroll away.
Kos revels in a classic Greek ambience, with quaint, labyrinth-style streets to wander through, and fresh Mediterranean food to indulge in. While Kos is the perfect destination for all traveller groups, it does boast a particularly romantic feel to it, with awe-inspiring views and crystalline shores, it’s a truly breathtaking part of the world, ideal for exploring with loved ones.
For a real taste of the island’s heritage, plan an excursion to the place where Hippocrates trained in ancient medicine, Asklepion, which is only a short journey from Kos Town itself. The sanctuary has a genuine sense of tranquillity to it, so embrace the peace and quiet as you stroll through the mesmerising site. Take a trip to Casa Romana, and discover how the other half once lived. This luxury Grecian villa has been preserved in all of its beauty, with symbols of mythology scattered throughout and a truly ethereal atrium.
Take a break from exploring the island’s historic sites with a long day spent lazing at Tigaki beach, where the calm expanse of water laps over the shores, inviting you in to cool off from the sunshine.

The food and drink on offer in Kos Town captures the very best of classic Greek flavours, with Cypriot influences, too. Fish, cheese and plenty of fresh vegetables are at the heart of savoury dishes here. From crisp Greek salads drizzled in velvety olive oil, to the simplicity of dipping breadsticks into tzatziki and taramasalata, while you take a break from exploring the town.
For anyone with a sweet tooth, sampling some Baklava is essential while you’re in Greece. This mouth-watering delicacy is made with ground nuts, honey, and filo pastry, and fillings can include cinnamon and chocolate; making them hard to resist!
Cleanse your palette with a shot of Ouzo, brewed by Greek monks as long ago as the 14th century! Alternatively, refresh yourself with some of the country’s traditional loose leaf tea; best enjoyed next to a gorgeous view of the glimmering seas at sunrise.
