Luxury in Athens: Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel, Greece

The Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel is our favorite luxury hotel in Athens, Greece. Located on a tranquil peninsula on the Athens Riviera, just a short drive from the historic center, it is a luxurious and stylish base for private cultural touring in Athens.

The 75-acre resort comprises three private beaches, eight restaurants and lounges, an incredible spa and verdant gardens. The resort features several original 1960s bungalows and two Modernist buildings, including the legendary Astir Palace, whose past guests have included Brigitte Bardot and Jackie O’Nassis.

Mid-century modern architecture and retro-inspired design combined with contemporary luxury and world-class hospitality facilitate a sense of timeless glamour, evoking the golden age of the Athens Riviera.

Neutral color palettes, natural rattan textures and floor-to-ceiling windows create peaceful, light-filled spaces that showcase the natural beauty of the pine-clad peninsula and azure waters of the Aegean Sea.

Fluted marble and repeating vertical slats reference classical Greek architecture, and curated artworks feature local flora and fauna from the Lemos peninsula.

A number of the top suites have private plunge pools or their own rooftop infinity pools.

Highlights of the resort include relaxing by the main pool with a floating olive grove…

…enjoying treatments in the incredible spa that offers a wide variety of wellness therapies inspired by Hippocrates and his teachings on holistic health…

…and dining in one of the notable seaside restaurants, such as Taverna 37, a seaside restaurant inspired by traditional Greek taverna, or Pelagos, the fine-dining restaurant.

Stylish bars offer an ideal place to unwind after a day of touring.

In addition to private touring in Athens, for our travelers staying at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, Artisans of Leisure can arrange private boat charters to the islands of Hydra and Spetses, a private excursion to the atmospheric seaside ruins of Poseidon’s temple at Cape Sounion, olive oil tasting, wine tasting and activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, tennis and pilates.
