Swank seaside beach retreat on a private peninsula with an infinity-edge pool and Nobu restaurant
Just 30 minutes outside the heart of Athens on its own private peninsula, the exclusive Arion Resort & Spa has played host to luminaries such as Nelson Mandela and Frank Sinatra. And its envious location means there are postcard-worthy views of the Saronic Gulf at nearly every turn. The 123 guestrooms and 58 bungalows are done up in soothing shades of tan and beige tempered by sage accents and feature wooden beam ceilings and plasma televisions; bathrooms have Waterl’Eau toiletries and separate showers and tubs. With a private beach and infinity-edge pool, activities here are water-oriented, but if you want to treat your taste buds to Greek fare and potent libations, there are 10 restaurants and bars (including a Nobu outpost) to choose from. Other highlight amenities include tennis courts, a basketball court, spa and fitness center.
In the Area
Do as the ancient Greeks did and take the waters around Vouliagmeni Lake, fed by underground thermal currents that keep the mineral-rich water at a pleasingly warm temperature year-round. Then, head to nearby Glyfada (around six miles from the hotel), sometimes referred to as the “Hellenic Hamptons,” where you can ogle the shipping tycoons and celebrities at one of the neighborhood’s myriad cafes and clubs. Further afield in Athens proper (the hotel runs free shuttles from Athens Center and Glyfada), check out the city’s greatest landmarks, the Agora and Acropolis, then make your way to Mount Lycabettus, whose summit can be reached by car or funicular: a stroll around the peak, with its commanding views of the city, will surely make you feel closer to the gods.
