Location

In the heart of the Cyclades, between Santorini and Mykonos, sits the unspoiled Ios island. Ios is easily reached whether you’re looking to fly in directly to Calilo and decompress in the luxury of your private suite (the resort has a private helipad and dock) or whether you’re planning to stop off for a few days to soak up the island’s cultural sights, spectacular beaches, pristine natural landscapes and buzzing nightlife.

The fact that there is no airport on Ios explains why the island has avoided mass tourism and still maintains its stunning natural beauty. In order to get to Ios, most guests fly to Athens or one of the larger Greek islands and travel onwards from there. From Athens (Piraeus) guests can take the regular 5-6 hour ferry to the Port of Ios, or the high-speed ferry (3.5 hours). A choice of regular and high-speed boats is also available from Santorini (45 minutes), Mykonos (2 hours) and Crete (Heraklion is 2.5 hours away).

If you’d rather a private boat transfer from Santorini we can arrange that for you.

Sustainability:

Calilo is a part of the incredible LuxurIOS - a Greek-owned tourism project that develops, owns and operates hotels, beach estates, villas, lounges and organizes authentic life experiences on the island of Ios. This project was born out of the local's love for their country, with a vision to promote sustainable tourism throughout Greece; contributing mental, emotional and financial resources to protect and promote the cultural and natural heritage of Ios.

After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, a significant amount of land was purchased on Ios, creating one of the largest private holdings of unspoiled beach-front land in the Mediterranean. The aim here was to use a very low-impact, environmentally sensible approach to sustainably develop a very small portion of the land - leaving 99% of it undeveloped. As a result, Ios’ natural beauty, unspoiled beaches, sense of place and Greek island cultural heritage will continue to thrive for future generations of locals and visitors alike.

As such, only a small collection of villas, lounges and boutique hotels will be developed under the LuxurIOS project and will all be based upon environmentally-friendly design and construction - working closely with the local community which will providing direct economic benefits through responsible tourism development. An integral part of the project is the offering of authentic island life experiences designed to expose guests to Ios’s incredible beaches, stunning landscapes and local products in privacy, luxury and comfort.
