Marathi
is a little island of 355 square km east of Patmos, with total coastline almost 4 km. In 1977 the Emilianos family came for the very first time on this rocky island. At that time, there were no trees, no water, nor electricity on the island. With a lot of hard work, personal effort and love for the place, Pantelis, Katina and their two children Manolis and Toula created a small green oasis for quite a few visitors from all over the world, who come to stay at the hotel or to dine at the restaurant, during the summer months.
Marathi is a refuge not only for the birds which visit the wonderful green garden of the family, but is also a total retreat for people who want to get away from civilization, and the rush of the cities.
On the island there is only one sandy beach. There are no roads, no cars, no stores nor anything else that can abstract you but the bells of the goats which live on the island.

Marathi is an ideal destination for those who want to enjoy the tranquillity of nature during their holidays, read or relax on the sandy beach, swim in the beautiful clear waters of the Aegean, all combined with very good food and service in a hospitable and friendly atmosphere.
All these coexist within a very short radius, as the ten rooms which are available and the restaurant, are only a few meters from the seashore!
In this corner of the world it’s the perfection of nature which gives the true meaning of life!

By providing you quality service, we try to make your staying with us most comfortable and pleasant. Everything that we offer you at our restaurant is fresh and derives directly from mother nature. Homemade brown bread, marmalades, traditional greek dishes and deserts all prepared with a lot of love from Katina.

Almost all our products are produced especially for you from small producers that we have chosen:
Tomatoes and groceries from Leros and Lipsi, dairy products from Samos and Arki, eggs and chicken from Leros, goats from Makronisi and fresh fish from our local fishermen.

We welcome you to paradise

And wish you to have an unforgettable stay with us on Marathi!
