‘Blissful’… ‘Wonderful’… ‘Totally relaxing’… The intimate White Orchid is an Adult Only Hotel that invites superlatives. On the edge of Sivota, this little gem boasts one of the most stunning views in our entire Greece portfolio, each of its eight suites overlooking the sparkling Ionian Sea, where dolphins bob up above the blue and Paxos and Corfu float like shadows in the distance.

Expanses of glass panelling maximise the light and make the most of those spectacular views, whilst the drifting scent of jasmine, bay and bougainvillea enhances the sense of calm that begins each morning in your sumptuous bedroom with its state-of-the-art shower.

There is a large infinity pool some 12 metres in length where you can float away on the view and, just a few minutes' stroll away, is a beautiful secluded cove known only to the locals. It’s ideal for an early morning swim before a delicious breakfast on the hotel terrace, sea views sweetened with local honey.

Just a five-minute drive takes you into the heart of spirited Sivota, where you can embark on a boating adventure or sample fresh fish in a taverna by the water’s edge. There are more delightful beaches all a short drive away and, for explorers and walkers, the mountains of Zagoria beckon with the magnificent hanging monasteries of Meteora beyond.

Throughout your stay, you’ll be looked after by our local hotel managers who provide our excellent concierge service. They’re passionate about this beautiful corner of Greece, so if you need ideas for inspirational day trips or an excursion or restaurant booked, they can help.

Footnotes

A stay at the White Orchid on the Greek mainland can be combined with a week in Paxos, where you’ll find The Purple Apricot. With its unique blend of bohemian chic and exceptional service, it’s another Adult Only Hotel experience that gives you the time and space to exhale.

Customer feedback

Our first holiday with Simpson and we will definitely return. We have had an amazing, relaxing, chilled week here. The view is to die for - why go anywhere else? We loved gazing at the stars; the beach, the view from the balcony - and thank you Klaudia for providing the snorkeling equipment.
Christie & Mark – October 2017

Fabulous location,superb accommodation, wonderful support from Klaudia and Rado and a view to die for. We rebooked the day after our return.
Mrs Lowe – October 2017

This hotel looked great on the Simpson website but exceeded all of our expectations when we arrived. The whole experience with the hotel, the views and surrounding areas.  The whole experience with the hotel the views and surrounding areas, the beaches and the sea were all absolutely fantastic.

We enjoyed our days by the wonderful pool. Thank you all, and we hope return!
Carol & James – September 2017

This is our first visit to mainland Greece & Sivota. We made the decision to have a totally relaxing holiday. We chose 'White Orchid' purely by the beautiful property and stunning views, we loved the huge balcony of the Luisua suite. Thank you to the most amazing team : Klaudia & Rado  for the wonderful breakfast served each day & Ewa for servicing the room to a very high standard. We've had a fantastic week and hope to return very soon.
Claire & Paul – September 2017

We enjoyed a sublime week at the White Orchid. A beautiful hotel in a stunning location in a largely unspoilt area of Greece - hard to find these days!
Mr Puttock – September 2017

We enjoyed a first class experience with Simpson Travel in terms of both the quality of the accommodation provided and the way we were looked after by their local representatives.
Mrs Tucker – September 2017

We had a wonderful week - full of rest and relaxation. Thanks to Klaudia, Rado, Sotiris & Ewa - we are very much looking forward to coming back to this wonderful place.

Jane & Craig – August 2017

Thank you for an amazing time in a fantastic location - we both really loved it here on our super large balcony and an awesome beach on our doorstep. We would recommend the river walk, it is breathtaking. Thank you again!
Paul & Sarah – August 2017

Perfection - the White Orchid has just got it all right. From the moment you arrive and see the view you know that you are in for a treat. The room was absolutely stunning with a huge balcony and a mesmerizing view out to sea. We loved the architecture of the building and the quality of the finish. Klaudia, Rodo, Sotiris and Ewa need a special mention - all quietly going out of their way to ensure that every guest was looked after and had their needs met. Nothing was too much trouble and every encounter one with a smile. We have returned home after a fabulous week's holiday, feeling very relaxed and cared for. For us the whole experience from booking the holiday to booking car parking at the airport and the holiday itself has been hassle free and of a very high standard. Many thanks.
Mr Anderson – August 2017

First time holiday-ers with Simpsons and had a wonderful time at the White Orchid, Vanda suite. Stunningly beautiful, clean, modern with amazing views and super friendly hotel management and staff.
Mr Gordon – August 2017

It's the lovely extra touches provided  by Klaudia, Rado and Sotiris which help to make this place so special. Oh - and of course, the view! We have had a relaxing week and have thoroughly enjoyed our time at the White Orchid. Thank you!
Karen & Phil – August 2017

It's the lovely extra touches provided by Klaudia, Rado and Sotiris which help to make this place so special. Oh - and, of course, the view! We have had a relaxing week and have thorughly enjoyed our time at the The White Orchid. Thank you.
Karen & Phil – August 2017

We've had a superb fortnight - the accommodation, views and most especially the outstanding staff, the amazing breakfasts - all added up to a luxurious feeling of relaxation. Klaudia is terrific host and creates a great atmosphere for the guests. Our impromptu parties on the terrace were a highlight. She & Rado have created a very special ambience. Calanthe apartment was wonderful and restful. Sotiris' cooking is fantastic & Eva is extremely friendly, helpful & hard working.
Sarah & Peter – July 2017

Amazing, wonderful, brilliant! That sums up our week here! We mainly want to say a massive thank you to Klaudia, Rado, Sotiris & Eva who are the loveliest people. Their warmth, friendliness and helpfulness are beyond compare. They, together with a great crowd of other guests, made it a very enjoyable and thoroughly memorable stay. Also, THE VIEW!!
Russell & Martina – July 2017

We have had a wonderful two weeks at the White Orchid - what a fabulous spot - that view!! Claudia, Rado, Eva & Sotiris have been great hosts, nothing has been too much trouble. We hired a small motor boat for a day, it lovely to go around the islands and find small beaches that would otherwise be inaccessible by car. We have had a fantastic holiday - thanks everyone.
The Balderson – July 2017

Our first holiday without the children for 18 years and the time we had at the White Orchid, Sivota was a fantastic place to enjoy a little peace and quiet!.... as always, a great Simpson travel holiday.
Andrew & Angela – July 2017

Lovely place to stay - fantastic views! We enjoyed watching the boats, watersports etc from the seclusion of the pool and gardens. Many thanks to Klaudia; so very helpful!
Paula& Paul – July 2017

Our first time with Simpson and we were impressed with the attention to detail and care taken by everyone to ensure we had a wonderful holiday experience. Thank you so much and we will definitely be booking again and recommending you to friends and family.
Mrs Everdell – July 2017

Just what we wanted in so many ways. Sivota is a charming town. Lovely beaches and watching the locals do " a day at the beach" is an experience I will remember with great fondness. The White Orchid is beautiful, the view from the balcony is to die for but no matter how beautiful a building is it's heart that counts and Claudia and Radoo and Sotiris, Eva and the others are that heart that makes this hotel so special.
Jude & Chris – July 2017

Paradise!! What a fabulous two weeks we've had. A mixture of exploring and simply lazing. We spent most of our lazy time around the beautiful pool. A huge thanks to Claudia, Rado & the team for making this such a wonderful holiday. Their hospitality has been superb & knowledge of the area seemingly inexhaustible! 
The Hobson's – June 2017

 

 

 

 

Found heaven! Thank you Simpson. Normally we are independent travelers... your team with special thanks to Klaudia who made this holiday a truly wonderful experience. We have been blessed with making new friends with the fellow guests in the apartment which has added to the wonderful experience. Well done Simpsons... and to the reader, enjoy heaven!
The Gouldings – June 2017

Arrived tired and tense and leaving totally relaxed and rested. Klaudia and Rado make the White Orchid a very special place to stay; we've had some wonderful trips into the mountains and along the coast, thanks to Klaudia's advice. Loved the pool and the wonderful views!
Kim & Trevor – June 2017

Lovely, just lovely! You can do as much as or as little as you want and Klaudia, Rado, Sotitirs and Eva will ensure you are spoilt rotten here. If you emjoy your stay as much as we have you will have a great time.
Sally and Paul – June 2017

Our sixth holiday with Simpson but our first in a hotel. The White Orchid is blissful! It enjoys such a stunning location, the rooms are beautiful, the pool superb, the breakfasts delicious and the staff thoroughly delightful. Yes.... You could say we had a pretty decent time!
Mr Crowther – September 2016

Great hotel, great staff, nice place to relax for a week or two.
Mr Olley – September 2016

Wonderful stay at the most beautiful hotel, white orchid. Friendly and extremely helpful staff They are all a credit to Simpson Travel. Thank you to all of them. Our suite( Kinabalu) was amazing. In fact just like the pictures!! We will miss the beautiful view every morning!! . This was our 4th holiday with Simpson Travel and already looking where to book for next year!!
Mr Bingham – September 2016

Thanks to all at Simpson - a worry free and very relaxing holiday.
Mr Burchfield – September 2016

The accommodation at the White Orchid is of a high standard and its position overlooking the Ionian Sea with the islands off Sivota in the foreground and the long distance views out to Paxos and the southern tip of Corfu is second to none. .Klaudia and Rado are exemplary hosts whose attention to detail and overall helpfulness is commendable.
Mr McGruer – August 2016

Great Hotel, a totally relaxing experience, friendly and helpful but not overbearing staff, will book again!
Mr Bridgwater – August 2016

Having heard so much about the White Orchid, we did wonder if it could possibly live up to expectations. Well, we need not have worried as it was everything and more. The White Orchid turned out to be the most perfect place to unwind and also explore the hidden treasures of the region. We were truly taken a back by our room with quality of finish and its amazing view over the infinity pool and out to sea. The sunsets where an added bonus. Klaudia and Rado have mastered that all too tricky blend of always being there to assist but then also leaving you to your own devices when not needed. Quite simply brilliant! Advice from Klaudia helped us be more adventurous in our trips out and about. This resulted in us exploring the White Orchid beach which is no more than 100 yards from the front door, right the way through to a full on 200 mile road trip into the mountains to see the Vikos Gorge and its villages clinging to the slopes. The Mushroom restaurant in Vitsa being a total 'must do'. Starter, main course and dessert ALL mushroom, fabulous! Once again thank you Simpson Travel for getting it so right.
Mrs Wheeler – August 2016

White Orchid is fantastic and lovely to have so much room in the suites and never more than 4 people in the pool. Klaudia is a great host and gave us wonderful advice on things to do in the region. We took an overnight trip to Meteora and Zagori region which was breathtaking and made a nice change midway through the holiday. Klaudia gave us great ideas and maps of where to go. Also recommend the Acheron River walk through the gorge if you can cope with cold water.
Ms Sainsbury – August 2016

We had a fantastic holiday made even better by Klaudia and Rado and the rest of the staff.
Mr Smith – July 2016

Wonderful holiday great location and superb accommodation. Everything easy with no snags- smooth transfers and very friendly helpful staff. Thank you.
Mr Edwards – July 2016

Faultless friendly efficient company and unbelievable location - the website is very accurate.
Ms Crellin – July 2016

White Orchid exceeded our expectations in every way. Klaudia and her team were excellent hosts and set the tone for our stay right from the beginning. Highly recommended - we'll be back!
Mr Wells – July 2016

Having travelled with Simpson Travel a couple of years ago we had high expectations. These were far exceeded at the White Orchid hotel. The hotel itself is simply stunning. Klaudia and Rado are a real credit to you. Nothing was too much trouble and everything is done with a big smile. They genuinely care about making your holiday special - and ours was. We were looking for a relaxing break and it was perfect! We will definitely be returning. a wonderful relaxing holiday in the most stunning location.
Miss Matthewman – June 2016

We stayed for a week at the breath-taking White Orchid hotel in Sivota - what a beautiful place! The hotel staff, owners and Simpson reps couldn't do enough for us and really made our holiday a wonderful experience. This is our third time using Simpson and sure it won't be our last 10/10.
Mr Wrighton – June 2016

The White Orchid is a new property with 8 rooms in a spectacular setting close to Sivota and overlooking Paxos across the sea. The 10 metre infinity pool has wonderful views and was very well-used by all of us. Most of us spent some time each day sitting beside it, relaxing, reading or chatting to fellow guests. Some of us then explored local beaches of which there are several delightful ones, including the little local beach which is a very short walk away, or going on longer trips in the car. Breakfasts are simple but delicious and the managers, Klaudia and Rado, are lovely and a huge asset to the place. There are plenty of places locally to eat lunch or supper and the guest books in each room, as well as Klaudia and Rado, give helpful tips. Food is pretty good and reasonably-priced. It was a really relaxing week in beautiful surroundings. Thank you Simpson Travel and well done.
Mrs Hartley – June 2016

Simpson Travel are the only travel agents we regularly use. You can rely upon them to find a holiday destination which is that bit different, in addition the knowledge, efficiency and friendliness of all the staff is truly exceptional. You feel you are in good hands from the moment you make your booking to the moment you return. We have have just come back from a week in The White Orchid in Greece which turned out to be the best holiday we have ever had.
Mr Symondson – May 2016

Our fifth Simpson Holiday and this was the best. White Orchid is a fantastic secluded hotel with views which are just stunning. The quality of accommodation and the level of service provided by our hosts, Klaudia and Rado, were second to none. That is why Simpson Travel is our first place to look when holidaying. Normally, we do not return to the same place twice, but White Orchid and Sivota may be the first exception to this rule.
Mr Chalfont – May 2016

A seamless holiday from start to finish. The level of service and superb accommodation at The White Orchid hotel made it a week we will never forget.. Thank you Simpson for your care and attention to detail,we look forward to travelling with you in the future.
Miss Brockway – May 2016

The White Orchid is a wonderful hotel with stunning views. Rado and Klaudia are lovely hosts and are a credit to Simpson Travel.
Miss Hughes – September 2015

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

A short walk away you’ll find two pristine sand-and-pebble beaches, with more to explore on the uninhabited islands offshore and along the glorious Epiros Coast. Further afield, and perfect for a short countryside break or day trip, is Zagoria, home to timeless slate-built villages, arched stone bridges and the fabled monasteries of Meteora.

To complete the picture, we also offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas and a stylish Adult Only Hotel to help you make the most of your luxury holiday in Sivota.
