Atrium Palace Thalasso Spa Resort & VillasThis five-star resort on the eastern coast of Rhodes is all about the restorative power of water, from its six lagoon-style, multi-level outdoor pools, indoor pool, the adjacent Blue Flag beach (awarded for water quality and environmental considerations), to the spa – based on the purported healing powers of seawater, or thelassotherapy – with heated hydrotherapy-circuit pool and two hammams. There’s also a pool for kids, as well as a playground and indoor arcade. Accommodations are either rooms or villas; all rooms have either terraces or balconies, with garden, side sea views, while all of the villas come with a private pool and Jacuzzi tubs. There’s a choice of three restaurants, and all four of the bars (including pool- and beachside) serve snacks and light dishes. If you need a break from all that relaxation, there are also tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, mini-golf, or they can help arrange a scuba-diving outing.
