Whether celebrating a life event or simply reconnecting, a luxurious couples getaway in Greece is the perfect opportunity to escape, rejuvenate, and rekindle the spark that started it all. 

With the freedom to focus on yourselves, a luxurious couples getaway in Greece allows you to enjoy the reasons you fell in love, experience renewed romance, and create unforgettable memories.

While you bring with you the most important element of the experience, choosing the right destination is still essential to having the perfect couples getaway. 

While the choices in Greece are seemingly limitless, Astons’ Athens office has compiled a short list of Greek resorts that offer luxurious couples getaways in the Hellenic style. 

Luxurious couples getaway in Greece

From rustic surroundings in the rural Greek countryside to the vibrance of the Greek Islands, Greece offers unparalleled opportunities for those who seek a luxurious couples getaway that restores mind and body as well as the soul of their relationship.

These are merely examples of what can be expected in Greece.


Best for: Holistic mind-body rejuvenation 

Hippocrates chose Kos as his island of healing for many reasons, all of which can be accessed at OKU.

Ten nautical miles from the west coast of Turkey, the white sand beaches and brilliant blue waters of Kos bask in the temperate breeze of the Aegean Sea. 

OKU Kos lies along the island’s northern coast, and guests have access to its secluded beach and spacious private grounds. 

The historical home of the ancient Greek philosopher and medical pioneer Hippocrates, Kos was a popular destination for wellness and holistic healing in ancient Greece. 

That vibe continues to this day as a sanctuary of rejuvenation and a living practicum of the mind-body connection. 

An adult-only destination, OKU Kos curates experiences to rejuvenate your true self – your Oku, the Japanese concept for the hidden and sacred part of you.

Inspired by ancient traditions, OKU’s wellness program includes a traditional Turkish hammam and sauna, massages based on Hippocrates’s principles, movement practices echoing the tenets of yoga, and an indoor pool of tranquility.

The experience is not limited to OKU Kos’ exclusivity however. Guests are encouraged to explore the island and experience the atmospheric Kos Old Town and the temple ruins of Asklepion Kos, a sacred healing site from the ancient world.

Your stay at OKU Kos is an essential part of the rejuvenating experience. The resort offers a collection of 2-bedroom beachfront villas, each with a private swimming pool. 

Guests enjoy a dedicated butler service, the option to dine from a bespoke menu on your own terrace, and private yoga and meditation sessions. 

High-season rates are based upon demand, but low-season rates start at €695 per night.

OKU Kos is only a fifteen-minute transfer from the island’s airport, and direct access from Athens takes only an hour. During the high season, most EU countries also offer direct flights to the island. 


Best for: Ethos of exclusive luxury

A  part of the ultra-exclusive Aman Group, Amanzoe is Aman’s only Greek property. 

Carved into the history of Greece’s ancient Peloponnese peninsula, Amanzoe lies on Porto Heli amongst countless UNESCO-protected sites along the fringe of the Aegean Sea.

Perched atop a hill on the Peloponnesian eastern coast, Amanzoe’s unique architecture is inspired by the mythical Mt. Olympus, hosting Aman’s contemporary guests in royal fashion. 

Amanzoe’s private Beach Club sits in a sheltered bay and offers guests:

  • Four swimming pools

Should you wish to explore the nearby islands, speedboats will be provided.

On-site, guests can enjoy a myriad of couple’s activities, such as Amanzoe’s Ceramic Studio, where they can learn the ancient art of pottery-making using the same methods the ancient Greeks used two thousand years ago.

You can also take a day trip to explore the rich history of one of the many UNESCO archaeological sites surrounding the resort.

Amanzoe offers Hilll-side Pavilions, Beach Pavilions, and Private Villas. 

Each pavilion includes a private plunge pool with breathtaking views of the peninsula and Aegean. Guest privacy is ensured with stone-walled courtyards.

Acro is an award-winning adults-only resort perched high on the island of Crete’s northern cliffs.

Each suite features a sea view and a private plunge pool. 

Cave suites with natural rock walls provide a distinct subterranean feel that is very Cretan.

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Acro Suites has been recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as “Our favorite place to stay on Greece’s largest island” and named one of “8 Stunning Wellness Retreats Around the World” by Architectural Digest.

Acro Suites’ eco-footprint is small. It is powered entirely by solar energy, the pools are filled with chemical-free saltwater, and the fabrics are sustainable and locally sourced.

Metohi Kindelis

Best for: Couples embracing slow luxury 

An active organic farm since the 16th century, Metohi Kindelis is just outside the village of Chania on the island of Crete. 

A stay is an opportunity to experience centuries of Greek history at a leisurely pace. 

Originally built as the summer residence of a wealthy Venetian family in the 17th century, the farm’s three charming guest villas have been carefully restored to preserve their unique Venetian architecture.

A working farm for the owners, guests are only required to soak up the rustic atmosphere and relax, allowing their heartbeat to pair with the rhythm of the land. 

Villas offer a private pool and fully-equipped kitchens stocked with organic produce from the farm and other local producers.

Metohi Kindelis is an escape from the pressures of life – an opportunity to reset and reconnect while surrounded by the calm of the Cretan countryside. 

Amenities include daily maid service, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, and an in-house guide to the local area.

A three-minute drive takes guests to the village tavernas and, in five minutes, the beach. Alternatively, they can simply journey around the island and take in the sights of Crete’s charming villages and ancient ruins.

Metohi Kindelis can be reached from Athens via Thessaloniki to Chania airport with a flying time of three and a half hours. Alternatively, fly direct to Heraklion from Athens in 50 minutes. Transfers from Heraklion take one hour and forty-five minutes.

Villa rates start at €330 per night.

The Rooster 

Best for: Nature-loving couples

Tucked into the southern Aegean Sea on Antiparos island, The Rooster sprawls above an unspoiled beach in Lividia Bay across 30 acres of rocky hills, ancient ruins, and dunes. 

Masterfully designed to blend in with the landscape, 16 stone villas surround guests with natural materials to soothe their soul and restore harmony and balance to their inner being. 

The Rooster offers the quiet life – an ideal solution for couples who have too much professional noise separating them. 

Lounge the days away next to the clear sea, savor glorious sunsets from your terrace, or explore the island’s coastline by boat.

More than rejuvenation, the Rooster is about restoration. Specialist therapies are exclusively available at the idyllic House of Healing to heal your body, mind, and spirit. 

A short walk away, The Rooster’s farm allows guests to hand-pick fresh produce and create their own romantic dinner for two. Alternatively, they can simply enjoy a bespoke meal with a private chef.

The Rooster serves modern Greek dishes made from seasonal, local organic produce and freshly caught local fish in their Secret Garden.

Reachable by air or boat, guests can fly to New Paros Airport via Athens on a domestic 40-minute flight or take a high-speed vessel from Piraeus Port or Rafina Port to Parikia Port in Paros. 

Villa rates start at €1,470 per night but are only available from June through September.

Astons – Leverage the timelessness of Greece

Greece is considered timeless – its luxury, its beauty, its culture, and its appeal.

However, there are elements of Greece that are bound by time and the current Greece Golden Visa is one of them.

While Greece is a top destination for a luxurious couples getaway, it is also a top choice for couples to plan their retirement or maintain as their family’s Plan B strategy. And, the Greece Golden Visa is the best way to secure either – or both.

However, the Greece Golden Visa will be increasing its price – with destinations like Crete or areas of Athens currently requiring only an investment of €250K, but jumping up to €800K by the end of summer 2024.
