By Paul Joseph

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world renowned hospitality group, is to open its first ever property in Greece, situated close to the historic capital city of Athens.

The Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens will open its doors in spring 2018 and will take over the existing Astir Palace Vouliagmeni. Among the renovations will include an upgrade of the nearby Astir Marina, which can accommodate yachts of up to 60 metres in length.

Located 25km south of Athens in the area of Vouliagmeni, and nestled along a pristine shoreline of the Aegean coast, the hotel will enjoy a truly picturesque setting.

It will feature around 300 guest rooms, suites and luxury bungalows, as well as a spa, conference and event spaces, infinity pools, beaches and a unique beachfront promenade.

The interiors designed by Meyer Davis Studio will be inspired by the beauty of the surrounding environment and local culture. Select food and beverage outlets will introduce new culinary dining concepts of local and international cuisine.

“Astir Palace has always been a landmark destination of international stature, located in the Athenian Riviera, one of the most coveted areas in Greece,” says Stelios Koutsivitis, CEO, Astir Palace Vouliagmeni S.A.

“We are strongly committed to embrace its legacy and elevate Astir Palace to a world-class premium destination. Our redevelopment plan includes the Hotel’s complete renovation, a significant upgrade of Astir Marina, the advancement of Astir Beach, the development of up to 13 high-end residences, and the creation of Peninsula Park.

We are excited to work closely with Four Seasons, the world’s foremost hotel company, on one of the key areas of our redevelopment plan, the upgrade and the management of the Hotel, and set a new benchmark for luxury hospitality in the country.”

Four Seasons Hotels was founded by Canadian businessman Isadore Sharp in 1960.
