Irida Boutique Hotel
An elegant and sophisticated boutique hotel with first class service, a dramatic location and mesmerising Ionian views and all within stumbling distance of picturesque Parga.
Effortlessly elegant the Irida Boutique Hotel clings to the green hillside in one of the most desirable spots in Parga. This intimate hotel enjoys a privileged setting with far reaching views over the Venetian castle of Parga and the Ionian islands of Paxos and AntiPaxos. Hours can be spent bay-dreaming and watching the fishing boats bob in towards the pier. On shore, picturesque Parga has distinctive architecture beautifully painted in aesthetically pleasing pastel colours, the houses cascade down the vertiginous verdant hillside which is peppered with ancestral olive groves.
Irida Boutique purrs with discreet efficiency thanks to the inventive owner who is at the helm and supported by an excellent local team. Together they have created a sophisticated yet laid back coastal retreat. Guests are taken care of from the moment they arrive and all the small touches and details have been carefully created to provide a second to none guest experience. From the moment you arrive, you are welcomed with a refreshing aperitive or homemade traditional sweet pastry.
Designed and operated with love, each of the seventeen unique suites afford magnificent views to sea and have the luxury of either a private terrace or balcony. An a’la carte breakfast is served on a complimentary basis on the privacy of your private balcony daily- with choices galore it really is hard to think of any better way to start the day. Each of the suites tells it’s own Mediterranean odyssey and has it’s own vibe and style.
The large infinity edged freshwater pool is surrounded by voluptuous grey day beds and parasols. The pool deck very much takes centre stage and is a place to linger and rejuvenate under blissful Greek skies. Tastefully designed with a clean and minimalist feel while having glorious views to sea. It’s easy to be lulled to sleep by the sea breeze and gentle, fragrant waft of Oleander.
The Four Elements Bar, Lounge and Restaurant is a magical concept perched in a dramatic setting. This soothing spot is the perfect place to drink in the mesmerising Ionian views. Flavours at Four Elements are predominantly Greek and Mediterranean, inspired by carefully selected seasonal ingredients taking guests on a gourmet journey of the local region.
Should you bring yourself to leave this tranquil sanctuary, the delights of picturesque Parga are just moments away downhill. Sea swimming opportunities are plentiful with Ai Giannakis Beach, Piso Krioneri and Valtos all within short walking distance. Culture seekers will love a trek up to the venetian castle and sea worshippers will enjoy day trips to Paxos or the opportunity to hire their own speed boat and visit remote coves and bays. Parga springs to life early evening when the myriad of cafes and bars spill out onto the harbour wall. It is hard to think of a more special place to soak up the Ionian scene. Tavernas are plentiful and each offering different local specialities and a unique dining experience.
