Top choice hotel

in Kavala
Image by

Occupying a former Islamic seminary built in 1817 by Pasha Mohamed Ali, this stunning hotel complex in Panagia blends original stone features such as vaulted ceilings and large fireplaces with every modern comfort. The restored Turkish hammam, a muscle-melting array of spa treatments and a candlelit indoor pool complete an exceedingly decadent picture.

The in-house restaurant brings Turkish, Greek and western European traditions into delightful concordance (mains €26 to €28).

Quick description

Offering a unique location within a historical monument, Imaret has been beautifully restored to combine original Ottoman architecture with modern luxury. Originally built in 1817, Imaret has been carefully restored to create a magnificent setting for a first-class residence. Every room and suite is lavishly decorated and appointed with Molton Brown candles and exclusive Bulgari toiletries. Original fireplaces complete the elegant interiors. Guests can enjoy relaxed moments in the 3 courtyards and the beautiful outdoor cistern or unwind in the hotel’s spa offering soothing massages and a traditional hammam experience. Guided tours of the monument, including the mosque and the house of Mohamed Ali, are also available. The intimate environment of Imaret’s tea room is the perfect place for afternoon tea, offering a fine selection of Fortnum and Mason’s teas. In the evening, Imaret’s superb fine dining menu is complimented by an impressive wine list. Guests can enjoy beautifully prepared meals on the private terrace, whilst admiring stunning views of Kavala and the sea.
