Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has begun accepting reservations for its first Greek property on the Athenian Riviera, the new Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens. Just minutes from the historic city centre of Athens is a pine-clad peninsula jutting into the Aegean Sea and offering myriad recreational opportunities and world-class dining in a chic setting. The new Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens is now confirming reservations for arrivals beginning 29 March 2019.
Nestled among 30 hectares of towering pines and fringed by three private beaches, the historic Astir Palace Hotel is currently receiving an extensive refurbishment to bring it into line with that of the Four Seasons brand. Following a significant renovation and reinvention, a new generation of travellers is poised to fall in love with this very special seaside enclave.
The property features 303 accommodations split over two separate buildings, each with its own dining and leisure facilities, as well as a collection of classic bungalows.
- Arion, a modernist building featuring stylish retro-chic design. In addition to guest rooms and suites, it is also home to four restaurants and the hotel’s spa. The Arion Duplex Penthouse stands out in the region, covering two floors and crowned by a spectacular rooftop garden and private pool with breathtaking Aegean views.
- Nafsika, a mid-century modern building, boasts azure sea views from every room, as well as three restaurants and lively pool and waterfront scene.
- The Bungalows are original to the hotel and are now updated and modernised for today’s luxury traveller.
Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens features three private beaches along a 300-metre boardwalk and three swimming pools, while select suites also boast private pools.
On site there are seven restaurants and lounges, comprised of: Mercato, an authentic Italian trattoria and market with extensive indoor and outdoor seating for breakfast, lunch and dinner; HELIOS, with Latin American specialties and a ceviche raw bar on the menu; Pelagos, a sea-fresh Greek seafood restaurant for breakfast, dinner and Sunday brunch; Taverna 37, a rustic, traditional-style restaurant on the seafront that draws ingredients and inspiration from across Greece; Avra, the informal “living room” of the Nafsika building and the ideal spot to meet friends for drinks and light fare; Astron, a casually elegant lounge for coffee and cocktails with a hypnotic sea view; and Aristotle’s Cigar Lounge, an exclusive and intimate bar and lounge for the most discerning tastes.
There’s also a tennis academy, basketball court and the signature Kids for All Seasons program for the hotel’s youngest guests.
Located on a peninsula that also includes extensive parkland, restaurants, shopping and the Astir Marina, Four Seasons is just 25 kilometres from Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Airport via car or helicopter to the hotel’s private helipad. The hotel also has its own pier for those who wish to arrive by sea, or take tour of the surrounding islands.
