Its beautiful swimming pool adds to the mood of relaxation, with free umbrellas and sun beds and a bar serving lunches, snacks, drinks, cocktails, coffee and other refreshments.
As well as being a delightful holiday destination for families and couples, the Rigas Hotel is a ‘bike friendly hotel’ with services for cyclist. For those on a Greek island holiday to the Rigas Hotel, an exhibition and performance space for artists and musicians is also on offer, in addition to a big-screen lounge for broadcasts of big sports events, and barbeque nights with Greek music and delicacies.
