The Kivo Art Hotel & Suites is situated on a small hill of Skiathos, with breathtaking views of the blue Aegean Sea. The 4 star hotel combines the services of a grand resort with the personal touch and intimacy of a boutique hotel. It has 40 rooms, all with sea views, as well as a bridal suite with a private pool. The hotel features three restaurants with stunning sea views and an idyllic area around the pool which is perfect for events and social functions.
The rich breakfast is based on fresh and pure local ingredients, featuring traditional dishes from Skiathos and Greece in general. For starters there is milk, local strained yoghurt combined with honey and walnuts, fresh fruits, compotes or homemade spoon sweets. There is a selection of breads, rusks and toasts, “tsoureki” (sweet bread), cakes and pies as well as “plakopites” (pies).
The cheese section features the local “galotyri”, gruyere from Naxos, smoked cheese from Metsovo, “anthotyro”, “kasseri”, “manouri”, feta and goat’s cheese. The local delicious “ryzogalo” (rice pudding), flavored with mastic and raisins, the semolina pudding (halva) and the local “chaimalia” or “amygdalota” (almond shortbreads) are highly recommended treats. Cold cuts are paired with olives from Skiathos, Kalamata and Amfissa, bottarga and fish roe eggs during the period of Lent. Eggs are cooked in various ways, including “strapatsada” (scrambled eggs with potatoes, peppers, tomatoes and feta). There are also fresh fruits and homemade jams, local honey, and Greek tahini with honey, which appeals to those following a healthy diet.
