    Elegant, relaxed and future-proofed, Gennadi Grand Resort is a fresh breath of Greek Aegean air and is a shining example in the sun of positive environmental and social impact…

    Gennadi Grand Resort on the Greek island of Rhodes opened earlier this year as a place of pure inspiration where exceptional design, beauty and architecture blend together seamlessly. Lovingly landscaped by eco-minded architects, Dimitris Melenos & Partners, the resort echoes the relaxed feel of this less-explored corner of the largest Dodecanese island. Connected to nature, the resort lies within a small fishing village off the tourist trail on Rhodes’ longest and most beautiful beach, set snugly between mountain and sea.

    A synthesis of form, function and perfectly scaled structures in a nature-showcasing landscape, the resort operates under a BMS (Building Management System) comprising of leading innovative energy management technology. Slanted roofs simultaneously minimise sunlight reflection and optimise the microclimate conditions whilst forward-thinking recycling practices are in place throughout the resort.

    Blending the exterior and interior spaces, the hotel features a natural choices for every type of guest: floor-to-ceiling windows letting the natural light flood in, and sleek custom-made furnishings. The 288 rooms include spacious suites, two-bedroom suites and junior suites with private pools.

    Modern elegance and comfort meet in the various guestrooms and suites. The Gennadi Grand Suites with Sea View comprise of two separate stylish rooms, complete with a bedroom and a sitting area and a modern open plan bathroom.

    Elevating the luxury-resort experience, Gennadi Grand Resort is a rare blend of considered contemporary architecture, combined with old-fashioned heartfelt hospitality. It’s story is the sum of all its parts — the passion of the chefs, the independent farm workers who proudly bring their organic produce, the gardeners and of course the management team who have nurtured the feeling of everyone being a part of its extended family.
