Lively and sophisticated, Paros has become upmarket in recent years, with five-star hotels, high-end restaurants, and design shops popping up among the medieval villages, craft workshops, and wellness retreats.

Summer Senses Luxury Resort
Paros, Greek Islands, Greece|www.summersenses.gr|
Official star rating:
A modern spin on traditional Cycladic architecture, this hilltop resort overlooks the Aegean. Built with local stone and marble, the boxy, 100-key resort spread across eleven buildings opened in 2019. Fragrant Mediterranean gardens surround two large, freeform swimming pools plus a children’s pool.
There’s a small spa, sauna and gym for grown-ups, as well as two restaurants with a focus on fine dining, particularly at the inventive (and expensive) Galazia Hytra. But at heart this is a family resort, with a down-to-earth atmosphere.
It’s a short walk to Pounta bay, with its kite surfing facilities and rowdy beach bars.
