KOIA Architecture of the Ancient Doric Hexapolis

KOIA Resort is a design 5-star hotel on Kos island inspired by iconic ancient Greek architecture, the Greek countryside and the local morphology. It follows the natural slopes of the landscape, ensuring endless sea views from all rooms and common areas. The low-rise buildings, the planted roofs, combined with subterranean paths, blur the boundaries for the harmonious integration of volumes.


Considered an observatory into one of the most important Commonwealths of Antiquity, the Doric Hexapolis, KOIA Resort recreates the castle-town approach in terms of flow and spacing, allowing for true privacy and distancing among guests. This design 5-star hotel in Kos is a unique architectural feat, inextricably linked to the history and heritage of the island while seamlessly blending into the landscape. It acts like a bridge between eras and provides a window into the way of life of the island’s ancestry.




KOIA is positioned right in the center of the geometric triangle formed between three of the six island-cities of the Doric Hexapolis: Kos, Halicarnassus and Knidos. Kerameikos Gulf stretches out opposite the property, offering soul-rich sea visuals onto the coast of Asia Minor, and what is locally known as Cleopatra’s beach; where the legendary Egyptian Queen chose to stop for a swim while on her journey sailing from Egypt to Rome.

KOIA Logo Inspiration

KOIA is inextricably linked to Kos, but also to the actual setting in which the property is located. The main inspiration for the logo was the morphology of the topological landscape itself, whereby a particular curve is distinguishable. KOIA’s logo applies this curve and makes it a highly recognizable shape that forms its foundation. The architecture of KOIA follows this interesting territorial topology, since harmony with the landscape it resides in is a crucial factor of the resort’s concept.


The frame in which the topographical schematic is placed symbolizes a window or even a threshold into a separate world, once it is crossed. In the color version of the logo, the colours of blue and terracotta brown reflect the sea and land, as key elements of the location while the design lines convey an effect reminiscent of the waters found in marble, a rock that has been mined in Kos since ancient times.
