Iliada grew up in the hotel business and considers Kouros Village her second home. She has studied Business Administration and holds an MSc degree in Service Management, Tourism and Hospitality. She’s passionate about travelling, yoga and cats. She took on leadership in 2016, following her father’s steps, while the first summer she spent on the island was in 1990, when the hotel’s construction had just begun.
Iliada knows the island by heart, and she can tell you all about it. She is the person behind the emails, and upon your arrival, she welcomes you at the reception with a big smile. Her Swedish background makes the communication with Scandinavian guests effortless and has also affected – and partially inspired – the minimalistic yet practical design of Kouros Village Antiparos Hotel’s rooms.
Christos has been in the Kouros Village team for many years, taking over a managerial role in 2007. Antiparos has been his summer destination since childhood when he enjoyed the purity of the island. He knows the building inside out, and he is the mastermind behind all technical matters and renovations.
He is a concierge expert and a problem solver while he’s passionate about the sea, which led him to start his own boat rental company, “Antiparos Rent a Boat”, in 2008. Since then, he’s been around, providing our guests with first-class ribs and advising them on the best tours around the island’s hidden gems and treasures.
Lida is the head of housekeeping, ensuring a pleasant accommodation, and providing our guests with high-quality and tailored to their needs services. Even though her English is limited, she knows how to communicate optimally with our guests, using her positive energy, big smile, and heart.
She is a dynamic woman who makes her tough work seem effortless. Her partner in crime in her daily tasks is her sister, and together they make an excellent and efficient duo in the hotel’s housekeeping processes.
George is the manager of Samano restaurant, which we are happy to be hosting on Kouros Village Antiparos Hotel premises. In the past years, he has been working closely with Masterchef Leonidas Koutsopoulos, and he has also been managing Samano Radio Restaurant in Plaka, Athens.
George is a seating master and a wine expert. If he is not in the restaurant, you will probably find him somewhere in town walking his dog Lulu, catching the waves at the surfers’ beach, or expressing his creativity by creating stunning murals by himself.
