The outdoors of the island also provide an explorational journey into the past. Those who love history and culture woven into their romantic escape in Kos for couples should consider checking the following landmarks. The most poignant one is the plane tree of Hippocrates, located in the square of the town. Historical accounts describe that it was under this ancient tree that the philosopher spread his teachings about harmonious living and wellness.
Naturally, the ancient Asclepion and its past glory as a once legendary center for medicine, athletics and wellbeing is also something you should not miss. As is the Roman Odeon, the altar of Dionysus and the ancient Agora. At the beach of Agios Stefanos, you’ll find the remains of a 5th-century BC paleo-Christian church right on one side of the beach. Couples who want to share an even more extraordinary experience can even swim across to the islet of Kastri and marvel at the views of the medieval fortress standing sentinel.
Finally, one of the most romantic things to do in Kos for couples that accentuates the sheer beauty of its landscapes is sunset horse riding along the beach. It is an experience that is sure to remain etched in your mind for years to come.

The service includes a plentiful floating tray that guests can indulge in while inside their suite’s private swimming pool. You can choose freely from whichever breakfast style you wish, and the rest will be taken care of, and delivered at your desired time.
As for the evenings, opt for romantic outdoor fireplace sea-view dinners while guests can choose from several locations inside the garden area and enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner under the stars, reveling in the magic of the scene set before them.
Of course, if you’re in the throes of a whirlwind romance, intimate dining is an option that may seem most preferable. In so doing, guests unlock the in-room gastro experience which lets you indulge in the most delectable and absolutely private gastronomic experience on the island.
3. Taste Local Products Together

KOIA Resort boasts a bespoke wine-tasting experience in Kos for couples called the Sacred Wine Symposium, which operates once a week. It offers a concise tutelage on Coan (of Kos island) wines that allow couples to immerse themselves in the traditions of ancient wine-making while fine-tuning their palates to the wine culture of the island.
Similarly, there is a weekly olive oil seminar where guests can learn how to identify the scents and flavour subtleties of Greece’s liquid gold to distinguish its differences in quality.
Our garden is also the perfect setting for romantic saunters hand in hand, traversing through pathways strewn with fragrant herbs and plants, the scent of rosemary and lavender caught in the air. For a walkthrough with a fun and educational aspect to it, combine it with the Interactive Botanic Lab and learn a little bit about ancient botany and its diverse capacity.
