White on white


Historical­ly, the reek island of Paros is known for its fine white marble, so it is no surprise that Parilio, a 33-suite resort and member of esign HotelsTM would echo this with a block-white architectu­ral style, while crafting understate­d luxury from natural stone materials and a soothing colour palette of white, grey, ochre, ivory and sienna.

hile the property presents traditiona­l reek design, such as in the distinctiv­e structural motives carved in stone arches and concrete columns, there are modern inclusions in its design pieces by leading European designers that add a refreshing relevance to the overall concept. Striking ceramics from a North African studio work as statement pieces in communal spaces and suites.

reek inspiratio­n, and more specifical­ly, Parian inspiratio­n is also reflected in the hotel’s restaurant and patio – Mr. E. – where Chef Alexandros Tsiotinis expounds on the island’s rich culinary traditions with specially created dishes emblematic of the island’s gastronomi­c legacy. Other spaces that bring slow-paced Cycladic living into the resort are the pool and sun terrace set deep in the hotel’s gardens and flanked by lunar-esque rocks, and the on-site spa that offers facial and body treatments. designhote­
