Our favourite rooms
Guests stay in one of several two-storey villas, each of which contains only a handful of rooms, some with shared private pools. Stunning sea views are best enjoyed from upper-floor rooms, particularly north-facing suites 205–208. For larger parties or just for even more space, book one of the two-bedroom apartments or maisonettes.
Day-beds flank the stone-lined infinity pool, with additional bathing spots dotted across the terraced grounds. Adventurous swimmers can plunge into the sea from the volcanic-rock shore.
High-end sportswear for adrenalin junkies; sleek swimwear and straw hats for sunseekers. Binoculars will help you make the most of the fabulous panoramic views.
Comfortable Spanish cotton bathrobes are provided – perfect for padding around your bedroom in. On yer bikes… borrow Emelisse Hotel’s cycles and pedal into Fiskardo for a spot of lunch. Horse riding and scuba diving can be arranged nearby.
Well-behaved pets are permitted to stay free at Emelisse, in selected rooms; enquire when booking.
