Why it’s worth traveling for…
A masterpiece showcasing 19th-century Ottoman architecture, Imaret Hotel served as a school, a soup kitchen and shelter for refugees before its incarnation as a luxury hotel. An oasis of tranquility, Imaret is resplendent with fragrant gardens, marble arcades, fountains, and orange trees. Interiors are lavish, transforming from rich velvet and silks (in winter), to elegant handmade French linen (summer). Suites feature sunken tubs, Egyptian chandeliers, and marble bathrooms, some overlooking the Bay of Kavala. A soothing spa is housed in the original hammam.
Walk from the hotel to the ancient Castle of Kavala for stunning sea and city views. Explore the historic downtown before returning for a relaxing dip in the pool and cocktails in the glass bar. Garden enthusiasts will want to visit the restored gardens at the Mohammed Ali House museum, blooming with roses, oregano, lavender, and splendid flora attracting hundreds of nomadic bees.
