What to Know Before You Book

Folegandros hotels don’t cost a fortune – these are not Mykonos and Santorini prices, but you are also not getting the variety and ‘wow’ factor in the hotels available on Folegandros.

This is still, blissfully, an island where cruise ships don’t dock and so it is not thronged with day trippers.

Famous-Folegandros-sunset-seen-from-the-cliff-just-above-the-Church-of-Panagia
Folegandros sunsets are spectacular, this is above the Church of Panagia

This means that there is not a large tourist infrastructure of the kind you find on the superstar Greek islands.

Most hotels will be 2 or 3-star hotels. The newer hotels, often 4-star, have been built a little out of the main towns, so you need to weigh up if you’d like to be in Chora or by the beach or are okay with being a few kilometers from them.

There are some 4 and 5-star luxury hotels and boutique resorts with private pools and contemporary and sophisticated interiors and they are mostly in Karavostasi, where the Port is located.

These sell quickly so try and book as many months ahead as possible. Folegandros is the kind of island where people return year after year and book the same accommodation.

New accommodations, especially 4-star villas are being built, and you’ll find the best selection included below.

CHORA

1. Aria Boutique Hotel

This lovely 4-star hotel is perched at the edge of the main Folegandros town, Chora, just a short walk (5-6 minutes) to the center, but with several restaurants only 30 m away.

This means it has superb views of the Aegean Sea as the rocky hillside plunges down to the water. The furnished balconies are awesome places to lie around and do absolutely nothing for hours!

The hotel follows the relaxing traditional Cycladic architecture plan and style of white buildings with balconies around a pool, common across the island chain.

Aria Boutique Hotel features include room service, a bar, and free wi-fi.

2. Polikandia Hotel

You can’t get much higher than a rating of 9.9 from 400 reviews!

The Cycladic-style Polikandia Hotel is a 3-star hotel with a free Port shuttle, 250 meters from the center of Chora, Polikandia has both a heated outdoor pool (21 meters in length) and a separate children’s section and open-air hot tub.

Other facilities include free parking, free wi fi, room service, family rooms, and a bar.

3. Chora Resort Hotel & Spa

Folegandros Apartments has a lot to like about it.

A lovely swimming pool, a poolside bar, a hot tub, large spotless rooms that are well decorated, air con, free wifi, 100 meters for bars and tavernas – I can’t believe this excellent hotel is only rated 2 stars!

The rooms are contemporary and better furnished than most of the 5 stars and a few of the four-star hotels in Folegandros. There are windows that open on all four sides of some apartments which are split level and some have a sun terrace.

The apartments are a short walk down the hill into the Chora. The downside? Can’t see one – make sure to ask for a renovated apartment.

5. Themonies Luxury Suites

Themonies Luxury Suites has room service, a bar, a lounge, and a terrace but the rooms themselves are the stars.

Other features of these 3-star suites include family rooms, and free wired internet in all rooms (because of the thick stone walls).

The downside? No swimming pool, but still one of the most romantic hotels in Folegandros.

8. Kifines Suites

Kifines Suites is a boutique hotel that really nails the essence of Folegandros Island. It has private pools and there are panoramic sea views from the spacious deck of each suite.

But it also looks over the white cube houses of Chora to the winding path and Church of Panagia above the town.

There are four suites in the boutique hotel and each suite can accommodation 2 guests. The Suites each have a private pool and some have a hot tub and a balcony as well as a terrace.

The suites are open-plan and/or split-level. The ‘rock’ suite is stunning, and I really appreciate the soundproofing of these ultra-quiet suites.

Kifines Suites is 250 meters from Chora and there is a bus stop a very short walk away. There are restaurants and cafes 150-300 meters away.

9. Aspalathras White Hotel

It’s only 50 meters from the beach and has a lovely relaxing vibe.
