It is no wonder that the natural beauty of the island and its surroundings inspired the name of the hotel. ‘De.Light’ comes from the legendary myth of the sacred island of Delos, where Leto gave birth to Zeus’ twins Artemis (Goddess of Hunting) and Apollo (God of Light).
The story goes that because of Hera’s jealousy of Zeus and Leto, she ordered all lands to shun Leto, making it difficult for her to find a place to give birth. However, Zeus asked Poseidon to find a secret and safe place for Leto. She went to the island of Delos and since the island is not connected to the land, she was able to safely give birth to her twins, Artemis (Goddess of Hunting) and Apollo (God of Light). From that moment on, Delos was declared a sacred island, devoted to Apollo. It is considered to be ‘bathed in the unique light of Zeus’ son. Thus, the name for the hotel overlooking the island of Delos’ light, De.light.
The myth that inspired the hotel, along with a flair for Greek hospitality is evident in the detail put into designing the accommodations at De.Light Boutique Hotel.
