Hilton has announced the signing of a franchise agreement with Zetland Capital, which will see the opening of the first Curio Collection by Hilton property on the Greek island of Rhodes. Set to open in summer 2023, the resort will be managed by SWOT Hospitality.
Lindian Village Beach Resort Rhodes, Curio Collection by Hilton will boast 196 guestrooms and offer views over the Aegean and the resort’s surrounding gardens. Rooms will be equipped with a private outdoor area and 85 of them will also feature a private pool or hot tub.
The resort’s F&B offer will consist of five restaurants serving a range of local and international cuisines, two bars, and a gelateria. The concept of the offer will be designed by Trastelis Group, owner of two Michelin star restaurants.
Its additional amenities will include two outdoor pools, a fitness centre, a spa, water sports, children and family activities, a private beach, a tennis court and two meeting rooms able to accommodate up to 150 people.
Lindian Village Beach Resort Rhodes, Curio Collection by Hilton will be located in the south-eastern part of Rhodes, near the town of Lindos. Guests will enjoy easy access to local attractions such as the town’s Acropolis and other historic sites.
The move signals the third Curio brand opening in Greece in three years. The new resort joins Sea Breeze Santorini Beach Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton, and The Royal Senses Resort & Spa Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton.
Joining more than 60 Curio Collection by Hilton hotels trading or under development in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, we are delighted to announce the signing of Lindian Village Beach Resort Rhodes, in partnership with Zetland Capital and management company SWOT Hospitality. An increasingly popular destination, welcoming more than 5 million international travellers so far last year, Rhodes is an ideal location for Curio’s unique upscale offering. This fantastic resort marks Curio’s continued growth in popular island holiday destinations, following recent openings in Santorini, Crete, and Sardinia.
