Astir of Paros
Just outside the town of Naoussa, this island resort is surrounded by tropical gardens and faces its own private beach. The property has 11 guest rooms and 46 suites, decorated almost entirely in shades of white. The bathrooms are crafted from the island’s famous white marble, and many rooms have private terraces overlooking the sea or gardens. In addition to a large beachfront pool, the resort includes a three-hole golf course, a contemporary art gallery, and two restaurants: Aoelos, specializing in authentic Asian fare, and Poseidon, serving gourmet Mediterranean cuisine made with fresh ingredients from the owner’s farm.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
