Irene Palace Hotel
Irene Palace Hotel is a family hotel with a homely, hospitable atmosphere and modern facilities. It offers tranquillity and relaxation for parents and games and entertainment for children. From your room you can embrace the Aegean Sea and from the hotel’s garden you can dive into the crystal clear waters of Kolympia.
Its picturesque and verdant location, in the area of Kolympia, is ideal: in no time you can find yourselves anywhere on the island, north or south. We are located 25km from Rhodes Town and 25km from well-known Lindos.
Harmony – environment – sensitivity – relaxation – well-being
At Irene Palace we work with enthusiasm to offer you living experiences through our hospitality, atmosphere, services, quality and information. The images you will take with you after your departure, will place Rhodes close to your heart and mind and will bring you back to us.
We participate in and take action concerning the Environment, Culture and Local Traditions.
We offer a rich entertainment programme run by professional animators, with activities, exercise, sports and games, 7 days a week.
There are events every night for the entire family.
Sports: tennis, volleyball, basketball, football, table tennis, gym, sauna, garden chess, billiards, water polo in the pool, mini golf. The 18-hole Afandou Golf Course is only 5 kilometres away.
A rich buffet breakfast and dinner is served. We follow the Greek Mediterranean nutrition, enriched by local recipes. Our clients are enthusiastic with the tastes they discover. We use local products, which are pure olive oil, fresh fruit and vegetables, honey and the excellent quality Rhodes wines.
The 247 comfortably designed rooms look out onto the idyllic beach, the relaxing hotel swimming pool, the gardens which are opposite Panagia Tsambika Mountain or the valley of the Seven Springs. Enjoy a glass of wine on your balcony and surrender yourself to the moments of a special vacation. For the newlyweds we offer a special romantic programme. Our visitors realise from the very beginning the harmony which exists between the hotel facilities and the surrounding environment. Irene Palace Hotel is awarded every year with the Blue Flag of Europe, for its clean sea and beach.
Irene Palace Hotel has many pleasant surprises for its young guests: a “mini club” for children aged 4-12 in the morning and afternoon as well as a “teenage club” during July and August.
Children can have fun in the small swimming pool, the play ground, the large fairytale house, can race cars in the go-kart course and go for a ride with Marko, our friendly donkey. In our small zoo they can meet the two ponies, the two Dama Dama deer (endemic species of Rhodes), geese and other small animals. Children can also participate in environmental activities. Their smiles are our satisfaction!
Local Customs & Traditions
Motivated by the local customs and traditions, we offer our customers living experiences through participation in the programme “Local Customs and Traditions”.
In Irene Palace, Easter is celebrated in a traditional manner and it attracts many people. In April and May we observe the silkworm’s life cycle and transformation. On May Day we pick flowers and make, all together, the Spring wreaths, welcoming its arrival. On the 26th June we relive the custom of Klidonas, who summons us to light a fire with the May Day wreaths and to leap over it. We knead village bread using traditional methods with Mrs Maria, as is done in the neighbouring village of Archangelos. We offer Greek Cookery and Mediterranean Cuisine lessons with delicious local recipes. A mass and the blessing of the bread takes place in our small church, Agia Irene (St. Irene) on the day of the Saint’s celebration (5th May), but also during other celebrations. At every opportunity we follow local customs and celebrations, with the participation of our guests.
