In exciting news for the island, Rhodes is set for the first six-star resort to be built in Greece.
The resort’s design will be inspired by Rhodes’ rich history and culture.
The structure of the resort will be based on Rhodes Castle, featuring a replica of the castle wall. There will also be a moat, representing the Aegean Sea that surrounds the island.
The all-inclusive resort will contain 1,000 beds and will feature six restaurants, nine bars, a conference centre, water park and even a private cinema.
One of the main questions travellers need to ask themselves before going on holiday is how they will get around once they arrive. In some cities, efficient public transport is the way to go; in small towns or villages your best bet may be on foot; and in other destinations taxis could be the best option.
However, Rhodes is one popular tourist destination where hiring a car to get around is without doubt the best choice. Here are five reasons why you should hire a car for your trip to Rhodes.
If you have been lucky enough to enjoy a holiday in Rhodes, or even researched the island, you’ll know about its amazing history.

But did you know that the statue is based on a real statue that stood in Rhodes thousands of years ago? The Colossus of Rhodes once towered over the entrance to the city, acting as a deterrent to anyone thinking of invading the island.
It’s long been known by those lucky enough to live here or visit on holiday, but now a leading travel magazine has ranked Rhodes as one of the top ten islands in Europe. If you’re looking for that elusive mix of sun, sea, great food and history (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) this proves that Rhodes ticks all the boxes.
