A new resort located at Gennadi bay in Rhodes, Gennadi Grand Resort has opened in May 2018 and set a new standard for fivestar hospitality in the Greek islands. Part of Lindos Hotel Group, this eco-friendly hotel has a focus on locality and an emphasis on bringing the outside in. Most of the 266 rooms and suites have private pools and gardens – meaning equal space inside and out. Three pools, 11 restaurants, and bars, a theatre, spa, a shopping arcade, conference facilities, and a mini club. As well as spa treatments and outdoor activities, a green roof will be used as an open-air public space for walking, yoga, and jogging with views of the island beyond. It’s also part of the wider focus on sustainability, with the hotel using efficient energy and water management systems, the latest eco-focused air conditioning/heating system, recycling, litter separation system, and energy saving bulbs.
