While it is surprising that Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is not yet in Greece, this premium property is sure to be one for the record-books when it is officially revealed spring of 2018. Working with Astir Palace Vouliagmeni, they will be transforming the legendary Astir Palace. With a beautiful setting along the crystal clear waters of the Athenian Riviera, we suggest you look into making a reservation for 2018 to experience Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens for yourself.
Conveniently located 16 miles south of Athens, and 15 miles from the Athens airport in the area of Vouliagmeni along a pristine shoreline of the Aegean coast. Elite international and Greek clientele has long favored the iconic Astir Palace. In addition to the Hotel, the peninsula, stretches across 75 acres of pine-dotted and scenic landscaped gardens, which includes upscale retail and dining options, including Matsuhisa Athens by Nobu; Astir Beach, a unique seaside concept; Astir Marina; and high-end seafront residences.
In preparation for the Hotel’s rebirth as the new Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, more than EUR 100 million is being invested into refurbishing its facilities. Features will include approximately 300 rooms, suites and luxury bungalows; spa and recreational facilities; state of art conference and event spaces; infinity pools; beaches; a unique beachfront promenade; and more. With interiors designed by Meyer Davis Studio, the concept draws heavily on inspiration from the beauty of the surrounding environment and local culture, embodying a contemporary yet timeless luxury design ethos with unique attention to detail, and establishes a connection to the property’s history. It will surely be an amazing addition to the Athens landscape, and one that we are excited to follow along during the renovations.
