Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Get To Aegialis?
There are several options to get to our secluded paradise! And at Aegialis Hotel & Spa we also are travel agents and can help book your travels here!
– The most popular route is departing from Piraeus port in Athens and taking the Blue Star Ferry directly to Amorgos. Piraeus port is about an hour drive from Athens airport and bus X96 takes you directly to the port. Ferry tickets can be purchased either inside the airport travel kiosk or directly at the gate of Piraeus port. Schedule of the ferries can be found online: www.openseas.gr www.bluestarferries.com
Pricing varies depending on the ticket class but general is about 40 Euros.
The ferry ride is very comfortable and the duration from Athens is roughly 9 hours. The ferry will drop off at either Aegiali port or at Katapola port where we will be waiting with transportation to bring you to the hotel.
– Alternate routes, if you’d want a shorter ferry ride, would be to take another flight from Athens to Naxos and taking a ferry from Naxos to Amorgos.
Depending on the season and your schedule if you’d want to explore other islands you can also take a flight to Mykonos, Santorini, or Paros and take a ferry from there to Amorgos.
The schedules can be found on www.openseas.gr
What Are The Dining Options?
As part of the retreat package, there are two meals offered every day; breakfast, which is served as a buffet style and your choice for your group either lunch or dinner. If you would like to include all three meals we can arrange that as well.
Our chefs at our restaurants, Ambrosia and Nick’s Pizza, use fresh ingredients from our gardens and you can taste the Greek love in every bite. We cater to vegetarians and vegans and any other dietary restrictions.
There are also restaurants available near the port, a walking distance of about 15 minutes from the hotel.
What Is There To Do In Amorgos?
Besides soaking up the sun and enjoying the beautiful blue Aegean Sea views, Amorgos is rich in history and culture and very welcoming to all its visitors and guests.
At Aegialis Hotel & Spa we offer a wide range of activities from guided island tours to snorkeling and beautiful sunset boat tours! We also offer wine tasting and cooking lessons with our amazing chef so you can prepare Greek dishes when you’re away.
The nearby beaches are about a 15 minute walk away and the fresh, pure, saltwater just calls out for you to get in.
What Will The Weather Be Like?
Being located in the Mediterranean, Amorgos has very nice weather and lots of sunshine most year round. Summers are very long and the weather gets really nice and hot! So bring your hats and sunscreen! Warm weather can start relatively early anywhere from mid April and end mid October. Winter time, November to February can have some windy days and a few showers but still have occasional sunshine!
