Renovations at the Hotel Xenia (17/02) ...

Thanks to 'Steve in Skiathos' and 'Skiathos Island News' for very kindly, allowing us to share the following update, and photos of the ongoing works ...

Steve has been out and about, with the camera, once again, and yesterday had a peek behind closed doors ...

"Had a look at the Xenia hotel work again today. The guys working there asked if we would like to have a look inside, which we did. Lots of glass interior walls & the place has a nice bright & airy feel to it. 

Some of the trees appear to have been cleared and the views should be excellent.The rooms are coming along well and from what we have seen they are going to be a bit on the small side but very comfortably appointed with some smart furniture. One interesting aspect is the full length mirror you can see in one of the photos. It is also one of the walls of the shower - you can see out but not in! 

They now have a site office inside & the guys there told us they are hoping to start work on the bungalows in March. This information, however, was accompanied by the traditional Greek shrug of the shoulders so who knows"

  1. I didn't think that hotel would ever 'breathe' again. I look forward to seeing it fully operational :)
