Why Stay At Diamond Deluxe Hotel
Set on Lambi Beach amid the Aegean Sea, the Diamond Deluxe Hotel offers luxury comforts in the Dodecanese, including a full-service spa and two restaurants.
Opening amid the challenges of the 2009 Greek financial crisis proved to be a boon for the Diamond Deluxe Hotel, which became an immediate hit among travelers with a taste for luxury and a weakness for upscale kitsch. Overlooking a private stretch of Lambi Beach and the sparkling Aegean, it's about 30 minutes by car from Kos Island International Airport. The hotel features 110 white-on-white rooms, each equipped with a Jacuzzi or massage tub, plush beds, and 100-percent-organic linens—indicative of the hotel's green initiatives. In the spa, guests can treat themselves to yogurt body wraps and papaya facials. The Peruzzi Italian Restaurant, meanwhile, has one of the few wood-fired ovens among Kos luxury resorts.
During the summer months, hydrofoils and catamarans from ANES offer easy travel around the Dodecanese Islands. Fares start at $36 for a two-hour trip to Kos.
On Kos, many shops close between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., so plan your day accordingly.
Arrive at Kos Island International Airport (KGS), which is 15 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.Nea Alikarnassos Lampi, Kos, Greece, Greece

Why We Love Kos
The third largest of the 12 Dodecanese Islands, Kos is situated northwest of the much larger island of Rhodes. A lush Mediterranean paradise, Kos attracts visitors with its beaches, mountains, and green fields. Ancient sites like Asklepieion are also major draws.
Dinner for two $130.
Where to Drink: The Camel Bar, the largest bar in Kos Town, is celebrated for its theme nights. During the Flügel Parties, held during summer, enjoy discounts on bottles of Flügel, a popular energy drink combining vodka, guarana, vitamin B, and caffeine.
13-15 Akti Kountouriotou Str.
Flügel for two $5.
Best Shopping: Located across from the Kos Archeological Museum (less than three miles from the hotel), N. Reissi sells original, handcrafted gold jewelry. Take home a reasonably priced, one-of-a-kind Kos medallion designed by the jeweler's father, or browse the selection of rings, earrings, and other baubles.

Best Outdoor Excursion: The ruins of Asklepieion, a 4th-century B.C. center of medicine where Hippocrates once taught, are spread across a series of easily walkable terraces.
