Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens opened this week, taking inspiration from the original Astir Palace Hotel in the Greek capital.

The fully updated 300-room hotel is nestled amid 74 acres of seaside landscape on the shores of the Athenian River.

Located on a peninsula just 30 minutes from the city centre and a half hour from Athens International Airport, Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel is the ideal choice for travellers who want to experience the best of ancient and modern Greece.

Nearby there are three private beaches strung together by a 300-metre boardwalk, three pools, five tennis courts, myriad watersports from windsurfing to sea kayaking, plus a sunset sail every evening.

Helmed by executive chef Bertrand Valegeas, who brings more than a quarter century’s experience in kitchens all over the world, the Hotel’s culinary offering is as diverse as Greek culture.

Offering eight unique culinary options, hotel guests can tuck into the trattoria-style Italian specialties at Mercato; share beloved Greek favourites at the beachside Taverna 37; chill poolside with tapas and cocktails at the Latin American grill Helios; or enjoy a more sophisticated dining experience at Pelagos, where the restaurant team is featuring the day’s best Aegean fish and seafood prepared to order.

The new hotel resort gives guests options for their accommodation, too: housed in two distinct buildings and a collection of private bungalows, options span from light-filled rooms to secluded and quiet exclusive garden cottages.

“It’s a landmark day in so many ways as we welcome our first guests to the new Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens,” says general manager Sam Ioannidis.

“So many of our people are locals or native-born Greeks returning to their homeland from around the world, or people who have deep roots in this culture and finally have the opportunity to live and work here.

“This heritage makes us even more excited to share it all with our guests – whether it’s your first time in Greece or you’ve been here many times before, we promise that we’ll give you an experience that only Four Seasons can deliver.”
