The Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts are bringing their signature brand of hospitality to Greece for the first time. The Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens will open its doors come spring 2018 and will take over the existing Astir Palace Vouliagmeni.
Located 25 kilometres (16 miles) south of Athens and 24 kilometres (15 miles) from the Athens airport in the area of Vouliagmeni along a pristine shoreline of the Aegean coast, the hotel enjoys a picturesque location and offers a slice of the sunsoaked coast. The existing hotel has already enjoyed a glowing reputation among elite vacationers who already enjoy the offerings of the peninsula which include upscale retail and dining options, including Matsuhisa Athens by Nobu; Astir Beach, a unique seaside concept; Astir Marina; and high-end seafront residences.
With EUR 100 million invested, the refurbished property will feature 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. The interiors designed by Meyer Davis Studio will be inspired by beauty of the surrounding environment and local culture. Select food and beverage outlets, conceived by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, will introduce new culinary dining concepts of local and international cuisines.
“Astir Palace has always been a landmark destination of international stature, located in the Athenian Riviera, one of the most coveted areas in Greece,” said 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.”
