Imaret is an intimate luxurious hotel, located within the homonymous historical monument in Kavala. The monument is a rare example in Europe, a masterpiece of late Ottoman architecture.
Built in 1817 right in the middle of the historical district of Kavala, in northern Greece, Imaret is an unexpected oasis of tranquility and superior service. The variety of decoration, the quality of the delicate structures, the interaction between indoors and open spaces and the adaptability of the functional structures, create an original complex of high aesthetic and cultural value.
Guests can enjoy relaxed moments in the 3 courtyards and the beautiful outdoor cistern or unwind in the hotel’s spa offering soothing massages and a traditional hammam experience.
The Imaret Restaurant and the Bar are located in the most recent building of the monument dating to 1863, characterized by distinctive western architectural influences. The Imaret Bar with its rich oil paintings collection, leather armchairs and original antique pieces, overlooks the Bay and creates the most inviting atmosphere to relax and unwind next to the fireplace. The Bar in the Mohamed Ali Gardens during summer time, offers an exceptional scenic view of the sea, the city, and the surrounding hills for drinks and refreshments accompanied by classical music. Don’t forget the ritual of an afternoon tea with the large selection of Fortnum and Mason’s teas, in Imaret’s intimate tea room. The Gourmet Restaurant situated underneath a glass façade in the winter and the open sky in summer allows the interior to blend unexpectedly with the luminosity of the Mediterranean scenery. It is an ideal setting for an intimate dinner. The fine seasonal dining is based on regional and European cuisine. At the first sign of summer, Imaret offers the possibility of private dining in the gardens and the terraces. A heaven of green, candle lights and the sounds of running water create a unique dining context.
