Ursa Major Suites Tinos logo

The traditional suites URSA MAJOR, Megali Arktos, on the island of Tinos, emits the Tinian and Venetian energy experiences of two centuries since the building dates back to 1801 as evidenced by the inscription on the marble of the central suite.

The spaces after the restoration and full operation in April 2022 are designed to exude the special atmosphere of living in an authentic Cycladic village with dimensions of old aristocracy, myth and tradition, giving you the opportunity to have a unique experience that will accompany you in your dreams. The selected repositioning of the spaces in their old form and time, the enrichment with beneficial aromatic plants in the wonderful outdoor spaces, the respect for the stone and the energy enriched by the sun and the Aegean iodine will make you enjoy days & nights of real carefreeness, relaxation and wellness.

This place is absolutely breathtaking. The views are incredible and the room is well appointed with more than enough room. We really found this place relaxing and the perfect place for a getaway. I would recommend making reservations at nearby restaurants in advance because we were unable to get in to some on our four day stay. The nearby mini market is well appointed and you can get beer, wine and snacks. The breakfast is the only thing we would say wasn’t perfect, (some bread/croissants seemed to get stale and the OJ was freshly squeezed on day one and two but not the last two. Some choices were frozen and would take too long to make) but the service from Joseph more than made up for it. He is so friendly and helpful. Excellent hotel manager. Would recommend this place if staying in Tinos.


The breakfast was amazing! It had everything one could want, pastries, cereal, yogurt... I also loved how it wasn't crowded at all in the small village, so everyone has their own privacy and solidarity. Joseph was the most welcoming and accommodating host! He helped us whenever he could, checked up on us to make sure we were okay and even gave us his own charger since we didn't have the correct adapter! Heni was also kind and positive, making our stay restful and relaxing.


Loved the service from Hassan and his lovely wife. Jossif was also knowledgeable and accomodating to our questions and needs. However if they offered a transfer to and from places would be amazing.


Our stay at Ursa Major was excellent. We loved the suite, it was very clean and well equipped. The bathroom was perfect and the air conditioner efficient. Superb balcony with jacuzzi and sunbeds! The mansion is close to the village square, cafes and restaurants, about 3 minutes walk, while an amazing beach is two minutes by car. It was definitely a great idea to spend the holidays here. Many Thanks Ursa!!

Η διαμονή μας ήταν καταπληκτική! Ο χώρος εξαιρετικά διακοσμημένος και πολυτελής. Επίσης, η τοποθεσία φανταστική. Να πούμε κι ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ στην κυρία Αγνή, που έκανε ο,τι καλύτερο για να περάσουμε καλά. Το συστήνω ανεπιφύλακτα!

Εξαιρετικά! Ευχαριστούμε για την φιλοξενία!
