The family owned Lindos Hotels group in Rhodes, with a number of five-star properties in their portfolio, is delighted to announce the appointment of Georgios Chatziemmanouil as the new General Manager for both Lindos Grand Resort & Spa and Lindos Village Resort & Spa.

Mr Chatziemmanouil will lead the opening – the Lindos Hotel groups most luxury yet – which will see a brand-new spa offering and a variety of fine-dining options for guests.
Located above the tranquil Vlycha Bay on the south-eastern coast of Rhodes, and close to the traditional village of Lindos home to the ancient acropolis, sister hotel Lindos Village Resort & Spa will also reopen its doors in May 2021 with a charming design of whitewashed sugar-cube like architecture, impeccable service and breath-taking views from each of the 187 rooms and suites. New for 2021, both resorts will launch an innovative guest app and digital concierge service allowing guests to book all restaurants, spa treatments and activities as well as control their room temperature and lighting at the click of a button.
